    I like it. Surprised we don't see more hoods like that.

     

    Ok, fun is over. We know that you hacked noone1’s account... Why don’t you get back to your own life and let noone1 back into his account?

    Yes  - though I may try and delay  till next March to space out cars etc. Next Ferrari arrival should be the 812 Superfast but one never knows when things are going to show up with our friends in Maranello!

    Btw: Above video is impossible, unless the Huracan has a supercharger or turbo kit (which I suspect...or the 488 had a technical issue). Smiley From standstill, I leave the 488 behind me up to around 140 kph, when the 488 starts catching up (doesn't fall back anymore). Over 180 kph, the 488 pulls away. We tried.

    Have you seen them in person? In the above pictures the values are off, in real life the CF rims look much more lively. I do like them. According to staff, they save 15 kg of unsprung mass.


    Re: 488 GTB/GTS

    Is it true that they are only half CF? Outer part CF, inner part alloy?

    Re: 488 GTB/GTS

    I also noticed that. It looks odd, almost like only the outside is CF and the inner half is metal.

    Rossi:

    I asked specifically that because it indeed looked like his. According to them, the rim is entirely made of CF but received a coating on the inside of the rim.

    In the Shmee video (I know, I know), he shows a stand alone CF wheel towards the end and you see the barrel in CF.  But as you say the inside has a coating.

    Will see them tomorrow. You are right about photos vs real life. I will report back.


    Re: 488 GTB/GTS

    CF wheels generally have been pretty ugly for all manufacturers. It's just not a good looking material for wheel. I've yet to see a car that looks good with CF wheels.

    Please do. Curious about your opinion.

    Re: 488 GTB/GTS

    I think I have seen that style of carbon wheel at SEMA earlier, have to dig through my pictures to see if I can find it. 

    They probably OEM these out to that manufacturer.

    OK, having seen them in person, I like them even less. Visually a complete mismatch in colour and weave with the rest of the carbon on the car. I get the functional benefit of weight loss though, however, I doubt I will spec them.


    Re: 488 GTB/GTS

    If they can coat the inside of the barrel, they can coat the whole thing. I don't see why you couldn't get a CF wheel with an aluminum looking finish.

    You probably could, but even I would not want to pay £18K for it.

    Are you sure about the 18k? Last thing I heard was more like 28k. Smiley
