    I believe you. The other day I was in a cafe out side and there was a guy with a DBS Cabrio just in front. He start the engine and drove away quite aggressively , what an amazing sound, true exotic notes, simply wonderful, only Lambos can compare with these V12 AM.

    Even the DB9 sounds like a beast. So under rated even with their flaws.

    Re: 488 GTB/GTS

    i do not like the silver/black combo on the 488. too 'elegant', nor raw ferrarish enough. for me it is either rosso corsa, rosso scuderia or white with/out black roof.

    White will look amazing on the spider.

    Agree. Argento Nürburgring with same color roof, PEXS and Grigio Corsa standard wheels. That's it! I would even go for Blu interior with Grigio Scuro stitching. Elegante and sporty with lot of style.


    Re: 488 GTB/GTS

    here is the problem: the 488 is too much GT......

    peter


    Re: 488 GTB/GTS

    I think Argento Nürburgring suits the 488 wonderfully...but I always had a soft spot for silver Ferraris. There is something very "cool" about a classy/understated Ferrari IMO.

    The problem with Argento is that it has very little depth to it in person. If you want to go for a Grigio colour its best to go for Titanio (bluish tint) or better still on the 488 - Ferro which looked great on the launch vehicle at Geneva.


    Re: 488 GTB/GTS

    Is Ferro now a standard colour for the 488?

    Agree about titanio and ferro, very nice "colours" for a 488.

    I fully agree but for Germany, the "elegant" look may be the "better" (less eye catching) choice.

    I'm not sure, if it's really an issue. If I like to go loud in any possible way, I order a Speciale, if I like to go "only" exotic, I order the standard car. 458/488 has loads of road presence (as Hurracan, as 650S etc.), that you don't necessarily have to choose a flashy colour. Of course you can if feel like doing so, but IMO it's not a must anymore (opposite to the 80ies/90ies, where a Ferrari had to be rosso corsa for instance).

    agreed. and it looks much better than the turbo s.  

    today i was supposed to get a 488 for an extended test drive (two days or so). unfortunately the car has software issues and is in permanent limp mode....:::(((((

    One concurs on the appearance and it is a positive addition to the repetitious displays of red.

    I think they have to bring it out, maybe 3 year away if it happens. 2 year wait at the moment here for a 488 delivery. Just went to see one at my local and its looks GT compared to the 458 Spciale, for me its missing something, do not like its stance either.

    Re: 488 GTB/GTS

    instead of the 488 GTB (viennese test car is in limp mode) i drove a cayman GTS yesterday. it felt really good to be back in the world of accessible car performance. lots of fun on twisties (except a pretty dead steering feel), the rear moves around much more easily than in the 458, a bit underpowered on the highway though - not surprisingly. i hope that the 488 awakens today so i can do the same road again. need to appreciate why i spend three times the money.

    peter


    Re: 488 GTB/GTS

    488 gonna have monster torque. I looked at a yellow one in Egham but it had no exterior options, which made it look very bland , imo. Think your looking at 30k to spec it up to look nice. It needs carbon options badly to take it away from the GT look we agree about.

    Agreed, but I think it's especially valid for yellow cars. Yellow goes well with black accents, not the standard grey plastic parts. If the black comes from CF, the better but also the dearer. With many other colours CF exterior parts are not that urgent IMO.
