    The reason I ask, is that the collar trim looks quite dull. The dullness appears to match the manta trim on the rear deck lid. Perhaps this was a special trim color specified by the owner to suit his taste given the exterior color choice.

    However, if this is what the standard trim looks like, which I now suspect, I don’t find it as attractive as the standard glossy black trim of the B pillar or wing mirror triangle.

    All the press cars showed spiders wearing the carbon fiber trim Manta panels which were done in gloss carbon.
    Does anyone know if the standard Manta trim is a gloss black plastic or a dull flat charcoal looking plastic?

    I got some great news. My build will no longer have the standard matte plastic Manta Fin panels! My dealer was able to make the change to Ferrari Carbon Fiber panels which for my exterior color and for my taste look so much nicer.

    I am also confident that by not going with the black hood collar, also made from matte plastic, that this will create a more high end look.

    Why didn’t Ferrari select the gloss black finish used in the door triangle and rectangular B pillar panel for these trim pieces.?

    I might have done the black collar if it were available in carbon fiber (glossy or matte) But what was chosen is so ....

    anyway be happy!

    Thank you for educating me on the realities of the standard look of the plastic Manta and black collar.
    But I’ve found out that you can take your car to a good body shop and have them remove these rough looking plastic trim pieces and sand them smooth and them repaint with special primers and black paint and glossy clear coat to match the other trim panels.

    I think F should offer this as standard trim rather than do mismatched.

    That was my first impression but I suspect it's one of the demo/launch cars (which means it is GTS).

    Again great picture. Love the Diamond finish forged rims!
    I’m not a huge fan of stripes on the F8. But to each their own. Might suggest on the rear end not to extend them below the spoiler? That to me seems to match the length of the stripes on the front of the car which don’t go down the front bumper.

    My October 2019 spider order is being quoted by my dealer as a spring 2021 delivery and I’m supposedly in their first few allocations.
