    We looked at body color and grey as you suggest. I think the issue with the photoshop is most of what they show as grey is actually black.
    We didn’t do the lines on the interior carbon, but did put yellow details around the tach area and inside the wheel.
    The newest option I actually liked the most was the shield in the headrest ca just the horse.
    Thanks!

    I get it. I have been fairly pedestrian in my previous cars and decided to be a little more bold on this one. It’s always interesting to see the actual car in person and that will tell the tale. I’ll keep this in S Florida so I can get away with a little more.

    That stripe is not suiting the beautiful blue. It needs to be rethought or removed. You have a such a unique stunning probably expensive Blue color. Why bother with a stripe at all.just get painted shields and you’re done. Everyone has stripes and you’re Tailor made so have your own signature.
    To each his own at the end of the day. congrats !

    It’s certainly debatable. I have gone back and forth.
    When you see this car in person there is a lot of real estate back there given the rear windshield angle vs the 812. It just seems to be asking for something to break it up.

    Have you asked them if they can carry the stripe on the painted area above the window frame? I think since its Tailor Made, they should be able to do it. It stands out as missing to my eyes as it is shown in the render. I think yes it could be considered a little busy, especially the interior, but I have found black interiors with a bright contrast color often look much harsher in pictures/ renders than in real life.

    I like the stitched Scuderia shield on the headrest. You don't see that everyday :D

    First and foremost, I respect your willingness to go outside the “safe zone” in which so many of us play. I love your color choice and agree that the rear needs to be broken up, leading to the stripe. I also like the personal touches like the shields on the headrests.

    Did they give you a lead time on the TM versus a non-TM order? Or any lead time at all?

    Outside of Europe, I haven’t seen any allocations except for TM builds. Anyone in the US have a confirmed allocation at this point?

    Congrats on an epic spec! I am a sucker for this color. There’s a blue Mexico (Porsche color, similar to your spec) TDF that I’ve seen running around my area and I must say it is the most spectacular Ferrari I’ve ever seen on public roads.

    Glad to hear that! I saw the color on a TDF as well, maybe the same, and told myself that was my next Ferrari. I think it fits the GTS very well and can’t wait to get it.

    That’s a great question. They were obviously directed to simply not answer the question or avoid and refer me back to my dealer. I assume it will be 6-12 more than a ‘regular’ GTS,bit they wouldn’t answer what that lead time was running either. I am getting my 812SF in December so don’t mind a little delay as I will enjoy driving it until then.

    I was at Atelier at the factory yesterday, was fun as ever but not essential if you have specified a coupe. There are few distinctive options and opportunities.

    I am a golfer and the boot aperture is very small, though there is a recess in the left side once “in”. Has anybody tried to get a carry bag in ? I am sure that it won’t go in with a driver in the bag but it may do if one takes the woods out.

    I think the car will lend itself to silvers and dark colours, next to the beautiful Roma (a very derivative design, much Aston, Jag and Merc GT but IMHO still lovely) the GTS looks very large, not cohesive and quite ungainly.

    The rear bulkhead is also very high and buttresses large, it wont feel like a canvas roof convertible.

    Shame one cant get heating in the race seats.

    Anyway notwithstanding I firmed up on G Ferro, dark Tdf wheels, painted shields, Nero leather with mandarin (!!) highlights. Will post CGIs when arrive.
