    Well, the LaF redlines at 9250 and the F12 at 8700. That F140 engine is at home at 9K.

    Its the factory designation for the current run of the modern V12s. The F140 variants cover V12 model years from 2002 with the Enzo through the present day LaFXX. Google 'F140 Ferrari V12 Wiki' and it should take you to a Wiki post with details.

    That's a very long run for an Engine design it's about time they did a clean sheet design -IMO

    She's right. Even Ferrari themselves admitted it could have looked better.

    I was at the dealership today spec-ing out the 488. The color I picked was called Formula 1 2007. Does anyone have a close up of this paint? Apparently its suppose to be pearl red. I googled the images of the Ferrari F1 cars from 2007 but it doesn't show clearly what the color looks like. Anyone with a close up image of the paintwork?

    This color name makes think of the one called Nuovo Rosso F1 2007.
    There's a member here who posted a tons of pics of his 16M in this color.

    Those seats are sexy. Modern look of the racing seats with a touch of classy with the Daytona inserts. Well played :)

    Fchat member Russel996 is the 16M owner I was thinking of.

    Here's a post where he explains the name on the PPG sticker. (from Rosso Formula 1 2007 on ordering to Nuovo Rosso Formula 1)
    http://www.ferrarichat.com/forum/141642269-post10.html

    He also has 2 galleries with pics in his profile :
    Russell996's ShowCase :: Scuderia 16M
    Russell996's ShowCase :: 16M Detailing

    Whenever there's a thread on that color, he's usually pretty quick to jump in and share his love for the color. I'm sure he'll be happy to send you few pictures :p

    Make sure you look at in intense light. It is very bright and almost orange. If you do some searching, it is supposedly to make the F1 cars pop more on TV. I love it, but it is much "louder" than Rosso Corsa.
