    Re: New option for California...

    Start & Stop option.. 850€ + VAT. Can be switched on/off by pushing a button.. (For those who don't understand Italian)

    I guess there was demand for such an option?


    Re: New option for California...

    Who would ever want to stop hearing that glorious V8 even at traffic lights?

    To be honest with you the sound of loud engines is very irritating for bystanders in the city. Even myself that I like cars sometimes they noise gets to my nerves. Of course the whole idea is to save fuel, noise elimination is a good side effect IMO.

     Iain, you like the Cali that much? Or does that move you up on the list  for the 458?

    I'm already getting my dealer's first customer 458 Nick with a July build date. I'm going to the Atelier to spec it in 3 weeks Smiley

    I do really like the Cali so another one is a no brainer for me Smiley


    Re: New option for California...

    Iain,

    DCT again I presume?


    Re: New option for California...

    Kreso,

    Yes, I'll stick with DCT as it really suits the nature of this car. I was thinking of going with sports sats but I sat in a car fitted with them at Geneva and wasn't keen on them so will most likey stick to the standard seats again with the Daytona finish.

    Here are the sports seats.

    Re: New option for California...

    Those sports seats look amazing though. Plan on keeping both Californias Iain?

    Re: New option for California...

     Ah, that explains it.

    I will be curious as to the depreciation on the car.

     Lain, do you know what color you are going for? i assume red is out of the question. Smiley


    Re: New option for California...

    I doubt I'll go for red as I don't think it's a great colour for a GT Ferrari. I'm a bit stumped as to what I'll go for next time round as I think it will be hard to beat my current Bianco Avus/Cuoio combination. I've got a year or so to make my decision though and I'll take the opportunity whilst visiting the Atelier and production line at the end of this month to get a few ideas Smiley

    Plenty of very nice shades of Blue to chose from,  that suit the shape and the character of the California. Blue has been a traditional Ferrari colour for Gran Turismo models.

     you beat me to it reginos, i was just about to quote this beauty to settle decision making process. 250 GT Lusso and 1962 250GT SWB both in a dark blue, not sure the exact color but they both look striking. There's the link for the SWB

    Re: New option for California...

    It definately won't be blue for me as I really don't like blue cars as a rule. The last blue car I had was a BMW coupe 15 years ago and I always regretted buying it.

    The only blue Ferrari I've seen recently that I liked was a Scuderia in Avio metallic.


    Re: New option for California...

    How about black Iain? Usually, I am not a fan of black but it might be what you are looking for.

    PS: If it were my car. it would be dark red.

    FERRARI RULES!!!

    Re: New option for California...

    Black looks quite good on the Cali but my GranTurismo S is black so I need something different I think.

     

     


    Re: New option for California...

     silverstone with cuio looks amazing lain

    You are a tough customer mate...

    How about this shade of light blue then? http://www.ferrari.com/English/GT_Sport%20Cars/Pages/Carslanding.aspx

    I know you dislike blue but this is different.

    Re: New option for California...

    Blue just isn't going to happen........ trust me Smiley

     


    Re: New option for California...

    It's either Rosso Mugello or Vinaccia then. Or I give up...


    --
    FERRARI RULES!!!

    Re: New option for California...

    Vinaccia?? Possibly the worst colour I've seen a modern Ferrari in.

    Remember I'll have to sell this car on at some point and colours like Vinaccia or Mugello would be kiss of death as far as residuals go. The 50's/60's colour pallette has limited appeal to most people so it's a big no no.
