They look stunning, but 200,000, friggin' hell, it'd need to look stunning.

For 200k I'd have a 360 challenge stradale for specials, 997.2 GT3 for everyday and a used M5 estate for dog/tip run/take passengers somewhere.

Got passed by one in exactly the same colour on the M8 about this time last year. We were a mile or so from a roundabout and as he was only doing about 70 I pulled out to stay with him so that I could bathe in the loveliness of the exhaust note as he pulled away from the roundabout. Regrettably I never got to hear it as he must of thought I was a cocky BMW driver trying to race him (not the case but very embarrassing in my 318d). Pulled away at 70 like we weren't moving, I made no attempt to follow.

The colour is actually much nicer in reality although I'm of the thinking that if you buy a Ferrari it has to be red.

My friend was at Spa last summer when some guy smashed his 458 into the barrier. The guy then unloaded another "spare" off a truck.

Been in one of these and........

That colour just isn't right though and I agree about the plate, looks rubbish!

It's an awesome car but purely from a sensation point of view as a passanger (excluding engine nose) it didn't touch the 911 turbo for me - that car left me questioning the laws of physics!
