    Re: 458 Speciale A

    The FF would also be a dream car but like I said before, no chance right now. So many nice cars out there, so little time...oops...money. Smiley Smiley Thanks god I didn't go for the F12, the prices aren't exactly stable over here (this may change though) and this would have been just another garage queen. I can afford a GT500 garage queen but the F12 is a completely different story.

    RC you should replace your Mustang with a 612... Or maybe next rotation get an FF instead of the Mustang and 911?

    Feel for you - PITA but I'm sure it'll come back as good as new. Hope it was a British truck rather than having to deal with our continental friends....

    Looks like its just the driver's door and wing mirror - I'm awaiting a formal report. The main issue is that its a triple layer paint so the whole side will need respraying to make sure the colour blends.


    Re: 458 Speciale A

    Glad no one got hurt.

    Don't worry, they do wonders with paint jobs nowadays.

    Can't believe I missed this thread! Spectacular car! Congrats!

    And the FF.... Oh my.... Hope it gets sorted properly and quickly.


    Re: 458 Speciale A

    no oh my!
    Hope the car will come back as new Crayphile!
    The lorry driver will have had some headaches as well... out of all cars he could crash into, he picked a Ferrari... should make for a good pub story for him when all is said and done...

    Would love to do that but a GT500 is easier (and cheaper) to maintain than a 612 or FF.

    The Mustang is more of a (challenging) weekend fun car and a steal for the money I paid (just last weekend, I made a RS6 driver cry...actually he was laughing and giving thumbs up...even recognized him from the press...he is a business man in the region who got in legal trouble and he is allover the newspapers here). Also, the sound is invigorating, absolutely amazing, a deep but very loud (yet not annoying) V8 sound. 

    Sorry, there is no money for a second weekend toy right now. Smiley

    Speaking of the FF, that color choice looks really good on the FF.

    Re: 458 Speciale A

    Some dealers in Germany are selling the 458 Speciale at around 300k EUR. Just saying...

    If you want the Aperta, double the amount but the cars are available.

    New F12 are available for around 270k EUR here.

    RC:

    thanks, i have seen those. very much over list of new cars....

    If you want the Aperta, double the amount but the cars are available.

    luckily i never liked cabro-style driving

    New F12 are available for around 270k EUR here.

    yes, but they will drop in value like stones...

    so for me it is either the 488, the F12 GTO (doubt to get one) or the GT3RS if the dealer gets my allocation (which i doubt more and more). i could get a GT4 very slightly over list but too many compromises involved with the car.

    btw, yesterday i was offered a speccable GT3 (non RS) allocation for december delivery by a german dealer, at lunchtime. the only constraint was no PTS, no carbon buckets. i said that i would think about it until today in the morning but at 3pm yesterday he told me that the car was already sold by one of his colleagues...

    well, after all the 991.2 GT3 will be out in spring 2017, so no need to rush...
