    I saw a F50 for sale at that has Ferrari inserts in the seats. I think it looks a little tacky but if I had the money for the car, $789,000, I guess I could afford to have them redone. I love the looks of the F50. I saw my first one in person this summer. My first impression was how big they are given I'm used to my 328 and the exposed carbon fiber weave, which you don't see in normal photos, is very cool.

    Any other details about this car? Did it have black wheels and green calipers as well? Sounds like the F50 that the guys whos house burned down in beverly hills may have owned. But who knows without more details.

    It was owned by that Lawyer who had a very serious house fire in LA a month or 2 ago.

    Serious case of bad taste, and no matter how good of a lawyer is may be, he can't argue his way out of that!

    Pininfarina badges on the door trim?
    F50 badge on the door trim?
    Cavalino rampante on the dash?
    x2 Small 'Ferrari' stickers on the rear bumper?
    Ferrari Mats?
    Scuderia Shields on the seats?
    Green Coils?
    Chequred flag oil tank?

    Need I continue?

    Ladies and Gentlemen of the jury, I rest my case...

    Final words: You think he is worried somebody would think it were a 94' Camaro?

    the worst IMO is the checkered flag stripes on the roll bar and the italian flag stripe on the rear spoiler

    This car was even worse a couple of years ago. I saw this same car for sale at the LA Auto Gallery about 2 years ago and it had even more stickers, even more little badges, etc. Hard to believe but true. The seats make it look like a Fiero kit car. I love the F50 but this one has to rank as the ugliest one that has not been wrecked.
