    Actually I rather like that. Smiley

    I guess the Speciale successor will look awesome. Smiley

    It does look surprisingly good. Must be something to do with the bonnet sculpturing now which suits that style of stripe.

    I agree. I never thought I would say this about a mid-engine Ferrari but I don't like the look of the car. The front with the whale mouth and the side intakes make this car look strange.Smiley

    Re: 488 GTB/GTS

    instead of test-driving the 488 GTB i test-drove the lambo hurricane extensively today. here is the low-down: excellent damping, very heavy and somewhat artificially steering feel (4WD effect?), highly responsive engine but i don't like that artificial burbling (reminded me of the turbo S), don't like the engine sound really at all - ferrari 8 cylinder sounds much better IMHO. the gearbox has that stupid thing of moving the car from standstill even when the driver is off the accelerator...it felt like any carrera - not good. poor vision sideways and almost no vision back. the interior is full of cheap plastic, toyota style, funny switches everywhere and octagons all around. exterior styling: i like it a lot, just the impersonation of a supercar. but i felt being totally anonymous in the 458 in comparison to driving the huracan: people very often just stare at you in disbelief. luggage space: close to non-existing. all in all the 8-cylinder ferrari feels much better in any respect. i would not even trade a 458 italia for a huracan.

    i had just as much fun in the layman GTS i drove recently - don't misunderstand me though, the hurricane is very fast, about turbo S level. 

    so the speciale remains the best car i have ever driven, i scold myself every day for not getting one.

    cheers peter

    What did I tell you some while ago? The Speciale is an amazing car, I would love to own one but I cannot afford it right now (too many cars, too many toys). The Speciale A is an even better story because it is a combo of the fine Speciale with a cabriolet. A dream come true. Smiley

    Whoopsy actually has exactly my (current) want-have dream garage and even the colors are right. Maybe I should move in with him (unfortunately I don't think I'm his type).  Smiley Smiley Smiley

    Something is wrong with the car.

    On an another clip, Same Car lost racing a reg italia. Which is impossible. I'm team Ferrari all the way but no way the Itslia is quicker than the Avantador.

    It´s already impossible to loose against Huracan, definitly this Aventador has some bug.

    I agree its a great colour, but its Bianco Italia and not Fuji. I'm considering this for the F12 Versione Speciale Smiley

    Nice angle  - much better than the full face on  - which I have to say I'm not a great fan of.

    It is Bianco italia. We used to have it on the FF. Looks really amazing in the flesh.

    Re: 488 GTB/GTS

    Interesting, there's a sport exhaust system option for the 488 spider or Titanium sport tailpipes.

    This will be cosmetic rather than a true sports exhaust


    Re: 488 GTB/GTS

    I take it as a ripoff while you're adding all the options ? heart

    I remember the "LaFerrari" having such option, never heard any feedback from the dealer or customers who ordered it.
