    Re: FF Order Placed

    Yes, the FF is now on MODIS here. I have the pricing and a copy of the E brochure on it but not any of the Scaglietti personalisation material as yet.

    I liked it with the shields personally as the front wings are very long and they add detail to it. How about the new carbon shield option (pic below)? It gives a modern, less obvious twist to this area. I think if I was ordering one I'd be very tempted by the Grigio Ferro Metallic and cuoio toscana combination the preview car was shown in.

    Re: FF Order Placed

    I have never seen that carbon shield. Interesting.

    Also coming around to Silverstone too dark and reverting to Grigio FF.

    Do u have more pix of this car?


    Re: FF Order Placed

    These shields suit the character of this car more than the yellow ones, I think

    Re: FF Order Placed

    Don't be hesitant to admit it! It is a fantastic car! I drove it for two days in Italy - through the Alps - and I was blown away!

    Grigio... hmm... I must admit, the colour doesn't work in the flesh - in my honest opinion. The silver and the red, even the blue.... wow! Here is a pic of the Grigio in sunlight, with my trusty Nikon D90 and a fixed 35mm lens:

    Oh, sorry I posted up the wrong pic! Here:

    GRIGIO!

     

    The article is on the Ferrari board, but it is also here:

    Let me know if you want more Press images of the grigio car, or pics of my grigio beast on test! As I said, the grigio doesn't quite have the same lines in sunlight as the rosso or even the blu! But, having said that... the green car is an absolute no-no! So better silver than that!

    Re: FF Order Placed

    Apparently the carbon shields are a dealer fit option so I'm waiting on a price. Seems mad that you have to pay for the standard yellow shields to get the wing recesses then pay up a second time for the carbon ones. I'd have thought it should be possible to put in a special request via the Atelier to have them fitted at the build stage.

    I think  Ferrari should offer the Yellow Shields as a standard option Smiley

    I don't think this is Grigio FF, I saw this color at the launch and it could be Grigio Abu Dhabi. See my first post for Grigio FF

    Love to see more pics of FF on the road and not in studios. 


    Re: FF Order Placed

     I had ordered the Grigio on one of my 360's and changed after I saw one on the street. It is very feminine looking. Also, it would (like Silverstone) have a very negative impact resale.

    There are four good colors for the FF. Red, Yellow, Black and Silver.

    Nick, Silverstone used to be a hard sell but nowadays it's one of the popular colors.


    Re: FF Order Placed

    Koko and ISUK - I do not have pics handy but if you find pics othe 599 GTO displayed at the Geneva Auto show (silver historic delivery with yellow stripe accross the hood), the shields are not the yellow ones.  From memory (so needs confirmation) they are have a silver and aluminum look.

    Kiran - thanks for your review, I will read it quietly at home or over the week-end, I have no doubt it will be outstanding and the best review on the FF so far.  I have always had a soft spot for the more refined 2+2 GTs from Ferrari compared to the rest of their range, even when they were not perfect from a styling point of view like the 612. What is your favorite color between Rosso Maranello and America Blue?  On your pics America Blue looks amazing, however I was not convinced from the other pics I saw in other mags.  It looks like it is a quite light-sensitive color? I also remember 9Eleven saying it looks fantastic when he saw it during the FF launch in Maranello.

    Re: FF Order Placed

    Does anyone know if Ferrari has red shields? I think this would look great with red calipers!

    When they can make some extra cash with it, I guess it will just be a matter of time. Smiley

    They already offer red wheel caps... Smiley

    Thanks, I do like those rims. It´s one of  the most tasteful cars from Novitech. Anyway, which exterior colour is this?
     


    Re: FF Order Placed

    The Novitec car in historic livery is Argento Nurburgring (silver).


    Re: FF Order Placed

    Thanks, mate!


    Re: FF Order Placed

    I asked my dealer to check on the availability of the carbon shields. At present they are only available for the 599 but the there are plans to introduce them for the California and 458 which have different wing profiles so require new tooling. There is no confirmed introduction date as yet.

    I guess that's why the dealer didn't tell me about them cause i'm ordering a 458 Smiley
