    Once anyone gets this first thing imo to set it off are black rims. It looks great with black rims with almost all colors for the body.

    Black rims with yeloow calipers look perfect not so much with the red calipers.

    I love this one! Love it. It's growing on me in darker colors, although the white one looks amazing!

    Jim, this thread alone is going to make Ferrari work overtime! Not even kidding. There are a lot of future owners seeing in your work the possibilities to personalize this car in a way that just hasn't been possible before. Black with red roof? That blew my mind.

    I can't remember another car that lends itself so well to the mix of two-tone variations and unusual color combos. Seriously, maybe a Bugatti Type-57? Regardless, this car is going to have a great palette of colors applied by some owners here and I can't wait to see them on the streets.

    Mine: Medium BR green, black roof (and lid), black mirrors, charcoal scuderia wheels. ;)

    Awesome works, surely these are going to be inspiration for the people in Maranello.

    I would kindly ask for an F40-zation: huge high rear wing, single wide rear grille as seen in some chops around, maybe with lights inside (1?, 2?), and maybe also a medium-sized air intake just behind the door as in the 308/328's and F40 itself (seen also something similar around).

    It's just that I tried to look at the side view blurring my sight, and certainly it reminds a bit of the Enzo because of the proportions, but also I managed to find a hint of an F40, then I thought: "what about throwing in an F40-style wing?"

    Oops, I forgot to ask for some silver Enkei wheels or OZ's or Speedlines like those seen on racey F40's.

    Thanks so much for the renders... This car really is sooo versatile from looking at all the changes you have done...

    I love the black bonnett/roof/engine cover and rear deck surrounded by the red... but thats probably because if I ever own one of these it will be spending a LOT of time at the track!

    I also agree about leaving the hood red, but making the other parts black being more subtle and elegant, and I love that too.



    I guess I'll just have to buy 2, so I can match the car to my mood!

    The pics above looks ridiculous..:D

    ridiculous in a unbelievable, amazing, beautiful way..:D

    W@W.....can't say that about too many cars.

    and this is just on looks..add the handling, power, sound and heritage and I'm speechless.

    Ferrari hit the nail on head. I guess if Megan Fox was a car she would be a 458 :eek:

    Wow, frankly it does look good in any color. I am not always a big fan of white but it looks stunning in white. This is going to be a very incredible car.

    What's the typical Novitec wheel? (I pressume they have multiple designs?)

    This one?
