    Re: Ferrari F12 Berlinetta / 599 GTO Successor

    Very cool, congrats. Another legend in your stable. I am sure this car is very satisfying to drive.


    Re: Ferrari F12 Berlinetta / 599 GTO Successor

    Now that has to be one of the most unique and amazing TDFs I've ever seen. Your spec is just so impeccably done ! Huge congrats 


    Re: Ferrari F12 Berlinetta / 599 GTO Successor

    the tri colore buttons on Launch and Reverse etc are the icing on the cake angel - the costs must be insane SmileySmiley

    Congratulations to you as well Smiley. Remarkable how varied the specs on the TDF have been. Ferrari is no doubt delighted with the Tailor Made revenue Smiley.


    Re: Ferrari F12 Berlinetta / 599 GTO Successor

    Thank you RC! indecision I'll post some more below on the interior. I actually haven't taken much pics of the car at all - even worse I've only driven it 100km since delivery mail 

    Haha Porker! Not intentional I promise smiley Thank you mate!

    Thank you Crayphile wink Enjoy yours in the best of health, many happy miles behind the wheel kiss I am enjoying the fact that there are so many different tastes. It's really cool to see!!

    Here are some shots of the interior. I need to get some in the sun. The interior really pops with the blu medio alcantara and carbon fibre.


    Re: Ferrari F12 Berlinetta / 599 GTO Successor

    Stunning cars... Too bad these are very hard to get their hands on.

    I took delivery of the TDF today. Its been a long time coming but it is everything I hoped for. I have not driven it much yet but its clear that the engine note and response is much more aggressive than the F12, the suspension is taut and purposeful and the gear change a joy. More driving impressions in due course but here are some shots of the very special paintwork in different light conditions. I know already this is going to be one of my favourite cars. Enjoy...

    Congratulations! I was initially a bit irritated by your choice of colors. Before seeing the pictures I assumed a car in a more discreet grey, silver or blue but come to think of it a lot of your cars are configured in rather prominent colors. Anyways, great car. What else is in the line up now?

    If you need some change once in a while, we can switch places... dark, rainy German is waiting for you. I even borrow you my bicycle. 

    In return, I would put the effort in to drive your car more often. That's the Rennteam community for you! Smiley

    Anyway, congrats to that magnificent car as well! Smiley

    best Ferrari for years!

    Crayphile

    I've realized that you always buy RHD cars..from a sale perspective do you ever think to buy LHD...there are more market in europe to LHD cars

    For example I think Futch also lives in UK but the cars are LHD

    thanks for share

    @pgouveia I have never really take resale in to consideration. As  it happens the second hand values for RHD drive vehicles that are in demand are always higher than the LHD as there is less supply and more demand  - reference the crazy 991 GT car prices here in the UK. I suspect @Futch has multiple homes Smiley, but I believe his main bases are London as well as France.


    Re: Ferrari F12 Berlinetta / 599 GTO Successor

    @MIke S  - Thanks for the interior shots  - goes well with the exterior. Blue carbon noted Smiley

    My F12 was in a GT spec - Argento Nurburgring with Blu Scuro interior. However , the TDF is a much more aggressive car so can handle more vivid colours and livery. I actually think the triple layer white and french flag are not too in your face SmileySmiley.

    Fabulous cars. Both beautifully spec’ed. I am curious as to how you went about doing the color selection and the various color appointments. When I was buying Ferrari’s, they did not have an exclusive department to help.

    You see, Argento Nürburgring was in fact one of the colors I assumed but yes, you do have a point. I also liked the TdF in the Ferrari Museum in, I assume triple-layer, yellow metallic. Smiley

    Not much else to see, quite stunned about your new acquisitions and the way you bring them across. Magnificent! Smiley

    Thanks Smiley.  Its important to have a theme or "look" in mind rather than leaving it to the factory department. It also helps to have plenty of experience with Ferrari options and not to try and ape a classical livery onto a modern design in my view. There have been some truly horrific TDFs with historical liveries on them. I also subscribe to the less is more school - many people go crazy and the result is over the top and kitsch. I had wanted to spec a white car for some time but given its a Limited Edition and a keeper I wanted a special and rare colour. I took the livery inspiration from the Tour de France name but the design of the stripe took a lot of thought - again my instinct was to not have it over power the lines of the car.. There are many many more subltites to it if you want to nail it, but you get my drift Smiley.

    Re: Ferrari F12 Berlinetta / 599 GTO Successor

    Such a unique and very rare spec for the TDF, you nailed it  kiss

    Many turned theirs into complete poop such as the ones with a different lipstick color  angry I thought this was a Lambo thing ? but it has moved on to Ferraris too enlightened

    The watermelon interior is just  angry seen this type of interior choice on 488 and it made me laugh
