    Haha - are you referring to the 997 GT2? .... Or oneof Tim's quiver of cars???


    Re: Ferrari Roma

    The car was delivered to me this morning. I've taken better photo's of it and am very pleased with the colour. I've not had a chance to drive it yet due to other commitments so impressions to follow at some point.

    The HMI is pretty simple to operate and work out without reference to the handbook. It all works smoothly and the main dash display is great. The ridiculously expensive CarPlay option is not well thought out however as it only displays in the main instrument panel ahead of the driver and therefore blocks out most of the screen. Hopefully enough feedback from Roma owners will make Ferrari think about switching this function to the tablet on the centre console in a future software update. I guess they have done it like this to suit the SF90 which does not have a central screen but it is really not ideal for a GT car.

    Given your level of attention to detail, I'm not entirely sure f you're joking or not. It did cross my mind that the doors are blue too. 


    Re: Ferrari Roma

    More envious of the lack of snow on the lawn than the Roma, which by the way, is presented in a stunning color combination.  Enjoy in good health.

    Well thought specifications. The car looks even better in front of your magnificent home.kiss

    We had snow a couple of weeks back but nowhere near as much or as bad as a lot of you get. It only lasted for a few days as well thankfully.

    Re: Ferrari Roma

    Stunning the Roma and lovely house! 


    Re: Ferrari Roma

    I like the Roma for its clean looks. A classic Italian front engine GT shape.

    The house is obviously a wonderful property to own and to live in. It also puts Ferrari ownership into clear  perspective.

    Enjoy ISUK kiss

    48 years separate the time these cars rolled off the production line at Maranello but Flavio Manzoni has channelled his inner Pininfarina and brought back beautiful curves. Interestingly Matthias Bartz - widely acknowledged to be probably the foremost expert on the Dino - has also got a Roma on order.

    I am glad Porsche are still represented in your prestigious collection.Smiley

    True the Roma is the essence of classic Italian car design. If Fellini lived and made films today he would definitely have a Roma on-set.

    The Dino! Everybody's favourite.
