    Rossi:

    What looks better at a rosso corsa car, silver or chrome finish? Smiley
     


     

    I'd say the chrome finish will look more modern Stefan and make the wheel look less like the 348 style. I really like the grey finish on the wheels of my Scud against the Rosso Scuderia paint. The contrast effect is more subtle than the starkness of bright silver IMHO.

    nice pics Iain, but that passenger side dash vent looks like a problem in waiting.

    I luv black but i agree it takes away a lot from the styling. Although it looks better on the Italia than the 430.

    I have always believed that black exterior on stylish cars hides the lines that make the car stylish. Cars which are styled more for function than appearance like the Carrera GT look good in black.

    But Nick surely your agree the Carrera GT has better lines than the 458?

    Trip, are you visually impaired?Smiley

    Though I recognize that looks are subjective, most people would agree that a Ferrari, any Ferrari, is better styled than the best of Porsche's. Like all the other Porsche's, the Carrera GT DOES NOT HAVE ANY STYLING CUES . It was put together for performance and it certainly accomplished its goal.Smiley

     Very well said nick, totally agree. I personally like exotics in black and on dark colours but in this case i do agree that the 458s styling doesn't come through in darker tones. this car wil surely look better on the lighter side of the spectrum (yellow, white, and especially all the silvers. Oh and it could also look killer on that light blue they had for the scud which i don't remember the name.)

    To each his own, I am more of a form follows function = beauty type of guy (for cars at least ). When I hear people criticize the looks of the CGT I can't see their point. I truly think it is one of the best looking cars ever designed and the lines are extremely clean and purposeful. Beautiful from all angles, no styling just for style's sake. Of course I think Ferraris are beautiful too however some of the details and extra styling bug me. The 458 is a very good looking car but IMHO it doesn't hold a candle to the CGT.

    I can see you know your way in Lausanne Smiley But , no, the official Ferrari dealer is just underneath Parc Mon Repos , near the town center. BeauRivage still sells F, but is not an official dealer

    I was told that Ferrari are considering offering the two tone paint as an option. I guess they must have seen the positive reaction to the p'shops on F Chat.

    Rosso Corsa car at an Italian dealership.

    Re: Rennteam's tribute to the Ferrari 458...lots of photos, videos, etc.

     What I find puzzling is the fact that the 458 is on display at a dealership. In the US, all cars are spoken for and once delivered to the dealer the buyer collects the car.

    Dealers here have learned from their US counterparts Nick and are taking early "demo" cars which can then be sold on at MSRP plus a tidy profit.

    Talked to a friend, who works for a Ferrari dealer (not my F-dealer), he said their 458 demo car had something like 180.000 km on the odometer. Smiley

    I think that that's quite impossible Rossi. It would have to drive round the earth 15 times!

    Well, perhaps he was exaggerating a bit, but he definitely said 180k. Smiley
