    Wandered to the dark side

    I’m afraid I’ve temporarily wandered to the dark side and said goodbye to GT3’s, at least for a little while.

    Replacement has come in the shape of a double espresso on wheels, I can’t describe the fury any better. I’ll update you along the way about what it’s like to live with in comparison to Porsche’s finest offering. 🥰

    Re: Wandered to the dark side

    Félicitations !!! Elle est magnifique. Tu es un grand fan des voitures de couleur verte. Cela doit au moins être ta troisième. Je n’en avais jamais vu de cette couleur. Comment s’appelle ce vert forêt chez Ferrari ?

     

    congrats Again. Absolute great choice and upgrade from the gt3.

    Avec le confinement, les routes belges vont être vides 😃

    Gorgeous, congrats Frank! wink

    There you go! Would’ve perhaps specced it with Cuoio and silver wheels myself, bit more menacing like this.

    Silver wheels for sure - great spec nonetheless, and I am sure you paid a lot less than list. Very smart move. Since the original lockdown ended this is the one car that has stayed at home with me and not rotated to storage - just such a joy despite not being the best looking Ferrari by a long way.


    Re: Wandered to the dark side

    Epic color ! Congrats !

    It actually moved from my colleague to me, as he contemplates going back to GT3's. How men can keep themselves busy... Smiley 

    Thanks all for the kind words. A dream come true for sure.

    I doubt it, that's not where the fun is to be had with a car like that imo. More thinking of trips to Italy, Scotland, etc... If and when the world is back to 'normal' again.

    That said, it is booked in for geometry/cornerweighting and Michelins at Manthey-Racing. Old habits I guess. SmileySmiley

    What’s your initial thoughts, Frank?

    I believe we sort of know straight away if we like a car?

    LOL & Congratulations!

    I wouldn't call it wandering to the dark side, but the bright side of a serious machine with serious response kiss

    This is the dark side smiley


    Re: Wandered to the dark side

    It's not the first time I've driven this car, so I'm over that initial SHOCK that it delivers the first time. It felt at that time like sitting on top of an (only slightly controlled) rocket. I'm past that sensation now, but it's still ridiculous to experience on full throttle, it really is THAT quick. And especially, it's not sanitized as many cars tend to be in 2020, you really have to think twice about full throttle and I absolutely love that about it.

    That said, dynamically, it is sharp but it's not tactile like a GT3. I assume I will not be looking into trail braking to make the balance work etc, and I guess that's something you might miss after a while. I've said it before, this combined with an older GT3 RS would be the best of both worlds. But for now, this will do. indecision

    Re: Wandered to the dark side

    Congratulations! An amazing supercar kiss

    The colour is very appealing and unusual to Ferrari. However, the dark wheels somewhat dull the look of the car, if there is such a thing as a dull 812. A set of silver or at least a set twin silver/grey wheels would further lift the presence of an already very impressive automobile.

    Enjoy in good heath!
