    The wheels look perfect. The only drawback is they are the first thing you see when viewing the car. 
     

    why a black exterior in your climate?

    Having everything is nice, but it's even nicer to make sure everything you've got is actually worth having.


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    Nick, I'm not a big fan of the gt2 stripes, decals & black exterior bits and pieces so I figured the only color to hide them is black. As to the black color in our climate, the vast majority of car colors here are either white or very light so a bit of a change from the norm is welcomed.

    Ah, makes sense.kiss

    The intercoolers are huge, I'd love some detail of the spec and supplier.

    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    I'm in the same situation: VLN1-3 has been cancelled. N24H has been postponed until end of September.

    Frustrating but it is as it is.

    Well, Swiss starts with Redbull, Paul R and Hockenheim, but after that it’s three races in Italy. Don’t think that will be possible during autumn. The virus will slow down during summer, but then gain speed again when it’s time for the Italian races. This season is a gone I think....yes

    Only a few km with the new Pista - much closer in driving style to the GT2 RS than expected. Quite a big difference to the Speciale.

    Very nice collection, very nice garage. 

    Would you like to elaborate your experiences with these gorgeous cars a little more? wink

    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    Thanks for your feedback.

    It`s too early for a final conclusion - and of course it would be very nice to have them together on the race track. 
    The 488 Pista is "positive unremarkable effective" somehow not typical for a Ferrari. I am really surprised and expected it somehow different. My son has a lot of racing experience with Porsche and LMP prototypes - he is also positively impressed from the Pista. 
    Let us do some more km then I will give you a better comparison. Smiley


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    Nice car collection kiss


    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    Stunning garage  kiss And cars . Congratulations .  Looking forward to more of your impressions . Not sure right now if you like the Pista better then the Speciale , even if you seem to say the Pista is much more efficient .

    Short tour in the Alps today - not a lot of traffic. Both cars are close together in their handling on a very high level. Again the Ferrari is surprisingly "comfortable" and effective. And the GT2 RS is with already some more driven km compare to the Ferrari still very impressive. kiss

    Why would it? Pista is a lot lighter, no?

    No, Pista is significantly faster up to 270 km/h.

    100 - 200 in AMS:

    Pista - 5.0 s

    GT2 RS - 5.6 s
