    Fantastic, thank you. The Ferrari people at the entrance were very kind and accommodating. I posted a few pics in the Geneva thread. What a memory we now share!

    Good question. Definitely not red. Definitely not black/very dark.

    I've several ideas, one is to repeat my tdf spec as it would look epic having seen the Argento Pista today. But have another two core ideas.

    It's an amazing car. Forza Ferrari.

    The potential specs for this car have my head spinning.
    One thing is certain I want to spec in a beautiful and somewhat unique way; I doubt I'd go RC with red/white stripe...

    Was at the show today and did a configuration. Quick question. How many are speccing racing harness vs standard seat-belts?.

    Also I am hearing racing harness cant be added later - is this true ?

    I will spec monocoque racing seats along with 4-point seatbelts and no, you can not add the racing harness later unless you want to DIY or have someone else do it for you

    What you can do, and I have done before is spec the regular seatbelts with 4-pt harness preparation. That way you can always fit the harness if you want.

    To be honest the 4-pt harness is totally overrated - for track work racing harnesses are 6-pt to be effective. It took me a lot of work to retrofit regular seatbelts on my Scuderia - but it’s definitely more usable now. So spec the 4-pt preparation and then you have the best of both worlds.

    I'm speccing with racing harnesses- not ideal if you wear a suit or the gf/wife is really dolled up for a night out but that's not what it's for .....

    Car is so much nicer in real life than pictures. As Always seems to be the case. The buzz surrounding the Pista around the show was also clearly noticed. It was the star of the show and perhaps for once a design that is an instant hit with the crowds. I'm speccing mine with loads of carbon, including wheels and race and telemetry kit. Tailor Made all the way.

    youve seen both colours in the flesh
    should i spec RC or silver
    body lines and carbon seems to really stand out in Argento?

    I am probably not the right person to ask as I am a RC guy through and through with the V8s. The car looked amazing in RC and to me it really needs the stripe.

    I like the fact that it’s loud with RC but that’s just me

    I vote for doing your tdf spec on it. Having those two cars matching, especially in that spec, would look fantastic.
