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

    REALZEUS:

    I am not Italian myself and never said that Ferrari, or for that matter any other company/team, is not multinational. Ferrari's engine guru is Italian, the head designer is Greek and the star driver Spanish. I was against nationalising this argument in the first place, that's why I objected the superiority of german engineering by referring to Ferrari, which undoubtedly in he most successful racing team ever. I never said that others do not innovate but I just can't read that the italians do not innovate at least as much if not more. The multiair and common rail engine technologies are Italian inventions after all and both are revolutionary. The same goes for the variable valve timing and turbo combined with supercharger technology. The Germans, the British, the French, the Janapanese, the Americans and even the Swedes have also contributed greatly with automotive innovations. Saying that only one country innovates is narrow-minded at best.

    The Japanese innovate? Tell me one original idea that came out of Japan. They usually copy and sometimes improve Smiley

    But objectively speaking, 9 out 10 automotive innovations of the last 50 years originated from either the USA or Germany. I admit that Italy has its fair share of the remaining 1/10

    Moreover your reference to Mercedes and Auto Union funded by the Nazis, reminded me of some politicians who refer to Nazism  when they run out of other arguments.

    Anyway this debate is never ending and we have totally opposing views. So I put a full stop to it on my part because I don't want to tire out others Smiley

    Nice video's, it looks so far to me like they succeeded in getting back to a cleaner, better design.

    Bianco Avus looks alright, but I think it's not the best colour for this car.

    I wonder why silver is a taboo for Ferraristi Smiley

    On the contrary, sculptured shapes like a Ferrari would suit this colour.

    The elaborate lines would show more and the play of light would compliment the contours of the car Smiley

    Boring?  On the contrary I find the numerous shades of red boring and the various  Ferrari greys too dull.

    Look at  these examples and see how the contours and shapes become alive with the play of light. Real missiles Smiley

    That silver Enzo is a crime!!! How could anyone order a top flight Ferrari hypercar in anything other than red?

    Sorry Reginos, I guess we'll never agree on anything. We can still be mates though...

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

    Out of the three cars, I find the Enzo the most suitable for silver. Ferraris have to many details on the bodywork which are highlighted too much by silver due to shade of colour and amount of reflection.

    I hope he knows that the first Ferrari was yellow...Smiley

    And that IS an official Ferrari color. Just look at the badge.

    The Red was taken from Alfa Romeo cars since in that time red was basically the color of italian race cars, silver for germans and dark green for the british ones.

    Get your facts straight mate! Red was the racing colour of all Italian race cars! Yellow was the colour of the town of Modena (Ferrari's birth place), that's why Enzo put the Prancing Horse of flight ace Barracca on top of a yellow shield. The first Ferrari racing car was of course red, as all italian race cars were!  Smiley 

    With all due respect, Ferrari owners should be more educated about its history...

    You just repeated what I said with one exception: the official guide at the factory told us about the first Ferrari being yellow. Stand down soldier Smiley

    What model was that? Cause the first 125 was red, that's for sure!

    Black does hide the lines of any Ferrari but i think black on the 458 looks more acceptable than other models.


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

    Red looks good on any Ferrari but not on the Modena. for some reason, it looks very strange on it

    I'm really divided with this color for a F car. In general, i love this color on most cars especially porsches and mercedes, but i do admire silver Ferraris. That Enzo just looks stunning. Chosen this color over red for F car owners requires a lot of ballz IMO. Do love this one silver 430 in my city. Stands out so much!
