    I love Padova! Haven't been in years! Send me book info / pricing etc. Yes there is a lot behind this scenes that we’ll never know. I know there was all sorts of issues with the PF original F40 concept that was aero related. I am not saying PF are perfect. I am saying their finesse and elegance and general presence is certainly felt and in some cases missed badly. I like Flavio and he and FCS will continue to improve. I would like them to focus on being more sculptural and more sensitive to nuance and less heavy handed with clutter and unnecessary contrived details.

    Agree, but nobody is perfect nor does mistakes nor cannot be improved. The book tag price is 75 euro with the hardcover (for sale only in Italy, not available outside Italy) and 65 euro with the softcover. At the moment only the hardcover is for sale (since yesterday...), and next week also the softcover (same size, pages and so on) will be worldwide.

    Who wants an hardcover signed copy or wants to know more, please send me a PM as I cannot talk more than this about my book or the Fchat moderator will ban me...

    Here below the synopsys and all the info fore the hardcover

    +1. Prefer the elegance of the Battista. I dislike the F8 coupe but find the F8 spider attractive. Too bad it sounds like a-- which is why I will keep my Huracan for now.

    So what does everyone think is best colour combo? My dealer says red is no longer required to help resale but I'm skeptical. I have Rosso 458 spider, I have f8 coupe on order pending final spec and want to take f8 spider. I'm getting tempted by blue for coupe and the spider in yellow is looking fantastic but I'm not going to keep these forever so want to make sure I'm not buying something no one will want afterwards

    I would not limit myself to red if you don’t want it. Blue, yellow, many colors all look great.

    There is more diversification of color now than before. Red color will always help resale but you are coming from a red 458 spider so I like your idea of color change. The F8 spider in yellow is stunning especially the triple yellow on the launch car. The coupe in blue will be awesome I like tdf blue. Both color should sell without problems. My favorite for the coupe is Grigio Silverstone

    OMG this might be the nicest 458 combo I've ever seen! Thinking strongly about wrapping mine in this color!

    Beyond gorgeous!
    I was determined to do an 812GTS in this color, then I saw the launch in Grigio GTS color and now I am very conflicted.
    VZ is one of their best colors ever...

    Thinking of exchanging 488S for F8S — has any test driven the F8T and if they have, how’s the sound vs the 488? Some people have implied the sound will be more muted due to new regulations — is this in the US as well?

    Journalists are just starting to release reviews so it will be awhile before customers can drive the F8. From what's been written so far it appears that the F8 is quieter than the 488 outside the car due to the GPF filter. GPF will be in the US cars as well. However Ferrari also incorporated what they are calling a hot tube that brings engine noise into the cabin and its supposed to sound better inside the cabin vs the 488 due to this feature.

    Indeed, the reviewers say that the sound inside the cabin is improved.

    Blame the EU bureaucrats, which require new particulate filters for EURO5/CO2 emissions and harsher noise regulations, NOT Ferrari! LOL! Maybe if ITALEXIT occurs then you could possibly have the old intoxicating sounds of Ferrari's of old.

    Nothing special about Pininfarina? The 488 and now the F8 overall design are both derived from the original source, the 458. Designed by whom?

    Yes you are right. No one else in the history of the automobile has the ability to design a car.

    Simple solution; buy the proper one, the coupe. :D
