June built 458 Spider order - Special color

Finalized the order last week...

Exterior color: Rosso Fuoco Opaco (yes, matte color)
Interior color: Cuoio, contrastinch stiching brown, Black dashboard
Seats: Racing but daytona style inserts

Other options:
F shiels
Ferro metallic painted wheels
CF front wings
CF outer pillar trim
Sport exhaust pipes
CF upper tunnel
CF sport package
Yellow tach
Leather headliner/upholstery/inner grills/lower zone
Elec steering column
Int/Ext electro mirrors
AFS lights
Rear camera
SatNav/HiFi/Ipod


Judging by the samples I've seen the matte color should look great but I know its not everyone's taste.

Now wait

Matte is very nice, I am a fan of it. The only thing is I am not a fan on Ferrari. It seems to cheapen the car as if they forgot to do something. Here is a pretty good looking one

These are some pics that you can find by searching "458 bar none." I love this color but am not sure what it's called. Is this what you're getting? I'm really thinking about getting this color!

Yeah, i think its similar...I've seen only a sample at the atelier but the color is so different depending on the lighting that is tough to tell...but that's the idea.

Yes - it's very hard to tell. I'm wondering if it might be Rosso Fiorano. I think it could be a little darker than Fuoco.

As per the "It seems to cheapen the car" comment, I'm not buying it as an investment...but think Rosso Fuoco and this Green may be a bit different?

all this car needs is a stencil on the door: "United States Army" or "USMC"

That really works.
Matte looks much better in person that you expect it to.


Now about that green.....

That's a stunning color and I believe that is black chrome rims?

Great color but I would read the owners manual on the care and feeding of that matte paint. You just can not wash the car. So be sure you are aware going in. That Rosso matte is nice.

Directly from the Ferrari 2013 owners manual. AS you can see it is pretty complicated. Even though it looks great I would use the money to get a regular special order paint color

Cleaning and care of matt paintwork (optional)
Warning
The paintwork MUST NOT be polished using any type of
product.
Owners must take great care of vehicles with matt paintwork
(optional).
Here is a list of the main precautions to be taken.
Wash the vehicle using a steam cleaner and rinse with
demineralised water only.
It must be dried using an automatic dryer or compressed air.
Manual drying can ONLY be performed using a 3M microfibre
yellow cloth (Ferrari code 571.400.022) that is clean and soaked
in demineralised water in the areas where limescale deposits are
present. The cloth must be kept in a special clean container.
To clean any grease or oil marks, a 3M microfibre yellow cloth
(Ferrari code 571.400.022) that is clean and soaked in R107/S
solvent (heptane) can be used. A new cloth must be used and it
must not have been previously soaked in demineralised water.
Do not wash the vehicle in direct sunlight or when the bodywork
is still warm.
Do not apply stickers to the bodywork.
