    You have my respect sir. Creative and bold. Well played.


    Not my choice but I am cheap and boring.

    Make it tailor made.Then tweak and they’ll approve.

    But yes they refuse color and options. And we’ve seen other cars like the yellow interior 599 with less colors and less taste by all accounts



    I admire the gusto.

    When the factory, whose been doing this for a long time and made some crazy color combinations, tells him they won’t do it, that should be a sign that it’s just wrong.

    So glad Ferrari denied this. It increases my faith in them as a company and a brand.

    Ok so like I mentioned earlier, why don't you see what colors they would accept and see if that works for you.

    maybe pay michael fux to order it for you. No one seems to tell him no from the specifications I've seen on some of his cars.

    Enzo, famously once said, “The customer is not always right.”

    I think that Ferrari doesn’t want to see customers make mistakes when building their cars. Also Ferrari may have some concerns about negative publicity if their cars are horrendously in bad taste. Instagram and social media have such a huge effect on public awareness when it comes to brand image.

    Of course, taste is both personal and subjective. Obviously the customer with this multicolor build envisions this car as desirable.

    I’m sorry but this cartoonish drawing looks like a child’s drawing and is more comical than persuasive.
    Can you post the computer image from the dealership build session? The dealer usually sends the customer an email rendering which looks very realistic and gives one a very good idea of the actual car.

    Agreed but again, even Atelier or TM, the car remains nearly unsellable and therefore, I agree with the assumption that IF Ferrari agreed to this, the only possible option for them to take such risk in this build is fully paid before committing to the build.

    Even the attempt for computer generated rendering was rejected by Ferrari.

    One other reason Ferrari may refuse an aesthetic build design is if it is meant to co-brand Ferrari with another company or venture.

    so if you own a clothing line which has a particular company color scheme or logo, Ferrari will object to this as it represents co-branding without a licensing agreement

    might I suggest that he use the basic interior configuration and then ask any teenager to help with some photo shop color edits.

    it is alway good to see an accurate rendering before you build your
    Car.

    worse comes to worse go as far as what Ferrari will slow and then change it aftermarket.

    Or else go to Lamborghini. I'm sure they will let you build it in any color, the brighter and more fluorescent the better.

    I've seen a 458 Italia with some "out of the box" colors/accents. This was a pop music stars car and Ferrari allowed a number of custom features. I recall that Justin Bieber wanted some baby blue accents on the exterior shields and interior with different colors on the drivers and passenger seats.

    Also sports stars have wanted to use the team colors too.

    I imagine that this owner has some real life connection to the colors he has chosen.

    So most of the time these things are solved with in a very simple way with a signed agreement amd the extra payment.

    I am pretty sure that there is no other company currently with that color scheme. Probably "United colors of Benetton" and they are gone.

    No way bro , you left out the red rings on the AC vents which will bring the whole interior together.
