    it all started with the Polo „Harlekin“ back in 1995. Volkswagen produced 20 samples to show the construction kit of the new platform. The car became famous as the main prize of Mc Donalds Monopoly in Germany in 1996. After that, it became a regular production car till 1998

    Can't say I blame them. They might do it if you go TM and opt out of the seat belts. You have to remember that Ferrari is not Lamborghini, and even though you can do almost anything, they still have a public image to consider. There's a reason why they won't do neon pink either.

    Here's what you could try. Order the car with the least aggressive interior colour, blue in this case perhaps. Then IF you insist on yellow seatbelts, get your dealer to order and install a set of yellow seatbelts. That way it will be slightly less odd, but it still might not be enough.

    If you go TM, then you pay much more, and that premium usually lets you get away with more. How many new cars have you previously bought from Ferrari?

    That is exactly what it is about. They do this in TM all the time. People want something crazy, and somewhere they have to draw the line. It does reflect on the marque, so it is understandable.

    Just a thought, if you want to be uinque, order everything in white, and get it dyed for desired effect

    And Ladies and Gentlemen,,, he is alive!

    Yeah, that would probably end up cheaper and likely exactly as requested.

    My recommendation:
    Red carbon
    Orange leather everywhere, dash + seats
    Red and yellow inserts in seats (You already have yellow logo on steering wheel and yellow gauge, so yellow is not a new color)
    Black carpet. You can easily swap to blue carpet after delivery.

    I was already starting to make up a picture of you to put it on milk cartons. It was going to be a collage of your hand, the far away silhouette of your face while inside your pista and the Pista.

    I am working through the tailor made program and had similar engagement. However I don’t think it’s about your requests so much. I spent a lot of time explaining my theme and Ferrari helped me to get to my end vision . It depends what colors you picked and how those colors represent Ferrari for different periods and different vehicle types, I.e sports, GT, luxury, elegant. Ferrari has a great world brand image and that is also partly due to how they manage the image through the cars they design and produce . At first I thought I was being denied my choices but I realized quickly this was a two way partnership. We are not just a paying customer. Anyhow hear is my thoughts. Maybe you can start with what your vision is, and they can help you get there without it breaking the essence of Ferrari, which in itself will preserve the value of your car, albeit you want to keep it for ever.

    Order it bone stock and take it down to Tijuana where they will absolutely do anything you want,
    and do it in an afternoon, for 100 bucks. Good luck!

    If you want unqiue you could go with an out of range or back catalog exterior paint colour. Spend enough and you could probably have your own paint made (Ie Rosso Coburn/Grigio Coburn). No reason to go with a rainbow interior just to be different

    Wouldn’t you ?


    He asked a reasonable question and while we might not agreed with his choices, he had a theme and a vision and is outside the
    “ how much money will I lose if I don’t get red question.”

    Hi this is my dream.......
    Your dream sucks .......

    Honestly , Ferrari can and will do whatever it wants including cancel options for normal customers but for Atelier or TM it’s open season. And let’s not talk about the 70th series. Are they guarding the brand or extracting a premium? You decide.

    Therapy? Go watch Mean Girls. There’s a human at the end of the keyboard.

    Multiple derisive posts deleted. If you don't like the OPs unique tastes or choices, you can move on. If you have nothing to contribute other than to be derogatory or dismissive, you can move on.

    I'm not moderating or banning anyone, simply because there are too many offenders. But the next offender(s) won't be let off so easily.

    Mondrian was an artist whose style gained respect and popularity.

    This design is no where in the same league

    I think Ferrari's decision to refuse to build this design is enough.

    If he really wants this interior, then pay the extra with TM and pay for the car in advance with a no refusal clause.

    The fact that he came here to ask for opinions means that he wants to hear others chime in with their true opinions

    Or should we tell him that he is some kind of artistic genius since he has chosen what none of us would?

    But no one here is telling him that it is beautiful.
    That is not being derisive.

    Let me ask you--would you spend $400,000 or more for his car?

    The 18 posts that were deleted were derisive and mocking.

    He didn't come here asking for opinions on his color choices, his question was:

    I would expect that anyone who spends $400,000 on a car wants to get the car he wants, not the car I want. He's stated that's what he wants and he has no plans to resell it.

    So answer if it has happened to you (having your configuration rejected) and if there's a way around the rejection, or else you can move on.
