    At the moment there are several threads of individual discussions and questions about the 488, its colors and ideas with photos all over the place!

    I will start with a couple here and maybe add yours or cars you come across here!

    I speced mine in two tone white as well. Only difference I went with painted forged (not diamond) wheels, yellow calipers, white stripe in seat and same body color on side skirt. If I want, I will wrap side skirts in gloss black to match roof.

    Why not just wrap the roof also?

    White 458s are gorgeous. Just doesnt work for me on the 488. Makes those intake ducts look even larger. LARGER!

    If you get my drift. ;)

    You know, I'm not sure. I'll have to download a scanner app and try it. I've never had a user for the QR Code before so I didn't even think to test it.

    I'm assuming it's some sort of on-line record of your car and its options at Ferrari's site. Might be a way of keeping all the cars honest at the time of future sales.

    How about a couple of the controversial engine.... I love the 458 motor visually. Especially the Speciale. I do however feel this motor brings in a more modern look to the engine bay.

    Now I'm over the shock of the new I'm really liking the look of the new engine. Makes the 458 engine look a little old.

    While still a thing of beauty.... I agree the 458 motor has been dated by the new motor.

    Oh, certainly. Not knocking the 458 engine, especially the Speciale version. Love the carbon covers and red stripe.

    To me it looks boring and small. I think they could have done so much more.

    Interesting they are now doing this. Perhaps as a way to avoid confusion over what options the vehicle possesses....

    On the engine bay- yes the new car looks newer- just how its supposed to be. But the smaller air plenums and larger engine bay covers calls out - at least to me- for some serious CF panels in there to jazz it up- otherwise its quite a bit of black plastic. 488 is a nice car- thanks for sharing the pictures.

    I agree completely and that's why ordered the full carbon engine bay on mine.

    I suppose they'll get some people to order up more options because of the spec plaque. I thought I would order the carbon engine parts later via aftermarket. However didn't want it to be missing from my list:).

    Really I didn't want to wait for it and have to deal with the install but it sounds good that way!

    My date for the configuration at the atelier is fixed for the 27th... still in doubt for the colour, below some pictures for inspiration, any other suggestions ? I also like the triple layer giallo...

    After selling 90% red/black LaFerraris, did Ferrari remove the red/black color option for the 488 GTB?
    Can't remember seeing a single red/black 488 yet!

    Edit:
    To make things clear, I'm talking about the exterior red/black bi-colore option, not a red car with black interior..
