    New arrival : 458 Spider

    Here are some quick shots of my new 458 Spider which just had its first detail. Always a pleasure to share with other Rennteamers Smiley. I continue to eschew the default Rossa colour choice for the sake of variety, and indulge my carbon predilection Smiley .

    I'm going to stop logging on to Rennteam - more "dreamcars" for dreamcar.....Smiley

    Wonderful car thanks for sharing the photos - and then there is that sound to cap the looks and the drive....Smiley

    The leather and Alcantara seats also look terrific, a does the carbon...Smiley I agree with your choosing not to have the default rosso - although I saw a 599 in a magnificent metallic cherry red recently which looked stunning.

    Do the superlatives ever stop coming!!

    Re: New arrival : 458 Spider

    I'm in awe ! This monochromatic scheme looks stunning ! the carbon panel in the back suits the white perfectly and the interior with the carbon and the white stripe in the seats is just superb. And the yellow calipers, perfect. I'm loving it. Iain and Onur you have a tough competitor here indecision


    Re: New arrival : 458 Spider

    Great car and specced very tastefully.

    So, you now own a coupe McLaren and a Ferrari spider. Allegedly, the optimum choice, is the other way round, but only you know.

    Congratulations again!

    The best colour for the 458 IMHO. Absolutely fantastic! Enjoy. wink


    Re: New arrival : 458 Spider

    That just looks magnificent.

    WOW congrats. Looking forward for a comparison between the MP4-12C and the 458 kiss

    I agree with you Reginos. Bacause of the carbon tubular chassie, if I were to have one of each, I would pick coupe 458 and spider Mclaren.

    Re: New arrival : 458 Spider

    Thanks for the kind comments everyone wink.

    I was a little hesitant on the white initially, but its turned out to be really striking, especially with the carbon rear which breaks it up as  you point out Enmanuel

    Reginos and pride355  - agree on the carbon tub being better for stiffness etc. On the flip side would you rather  listen to the  naturally aspirated Italian opera with the roof down or the turbocharged synthesised V8 sound yes . I delayed the Spider for the 12C coupe, which should be sold in the next two weeks or so. You never know there might be a 12C spider in the works too angry

    huntertone  - I did a detailed 12C versus 458 write up a while ago on this board - just do a search


    Re: New arrival : 458 Spider

    Black interior you get my approval kiss

    Car is hot indeed, it's actually the best converitble/spider out there at the moment


    Re: New arrival : 458 Spider

    Are those option sport seats or standard? I am curious if they meet US regs.

    Re: New arrival : 458 Spider

    They are the sports seats.

    Re: New arrival : 458 Spider

    They look GREAT!

    Nick,

    They are optional carbon racing seats that I also have in my car.

    On very high performance cars, I always thought that as much as I like removable roof panels; only a fixed roof would be appropriate. Then I saw this car from this angle and in this color: there are always exceptions to be considered Smiley


    Re: New arrival : 458 Spider

    Words cannot express the immensity of my envy!!

    What a breath-taking car.  And I really love it in white.

    I hope you enjoy it profoundly!

     


    Re: New arrival : 458 Spider

    Fantastic choice... that may be as close to a stealth Ferrari as it is possible to order.   In fact it may even be invisible to speed trap radar..... Smiley

    Re: New arrival : 458 Spider

    Wow, that looks really good with the top down, only trouble is in white with the top up the ugly seam in the middle of the roof panel is really noticeable. 

    Still, a very nice car.


    Re: New arrival : 458 Spider

    Wow - in my opinion this is the most beautiful car right now! Amazing color combination.... Enjoy!


    Re: New arrival : 458 Spider

    It looks stunning !!! And the color makes the car very special as rare . Great choice
