    You're ignoring the fact that red is notoriously hard to capture and display accurately on many devices. It often looks like **** in pics because most displays have poor calibration and most photos these days are captured by phones with poor settings and not corrected.

    Likewise, many grey and silvers are massively misrepresented in photos due to dynamic range, exposure, and contrast manipulation. How do I know? Because I had a metallic grey car and it rarely looked like the photos and the lines/contours were far less obvious in real life. It also never had anything close to the reflection quality it had in photos.

    The reality is that while some colors will always look poor (like pink or crazy stuff), all colors have lighting and environmental conditions that make aspects better than others. The best color is the one that suits your tastes and environment.

    For reference, these are the same car and I can assure you that in real life the results are much less favorable than both of these the majority of the time. In fact, the top picture is more or less fake. I had the same car, so I know what it actually looks like in most conditions.

    What use would that be? You want cameras at the rear most point of the car. It doesn't make much sense to put it up there.

    It's likely just the antennas and "style". Personally I think it looks dumb.

    The market also disagrees. A typical Ferrari will always be red. Some things are timeless.

    It´s used as rear view mirror, not for parking, so it makes more sense on the roof.

    EUR 356.668 taxfree + 40.000 for Asseto Fiorano package. Substantially less than anticipated IMO.

    So dry weight is more than that quoted for the 812 - real weight will be more than 1700 kg then. Of course power will offset it in straight lines but for driving dynamics it will probably be noticeable.

    That is actually "cheap" for a 1000hp Ferrari. Incredible.

    Yes ... as in so cheap that the quoted figure is wrong by a country mile. Don’t take everything you read on here as gospel. Especially the aforementioned. This car is a half-million all the ding dong day.

    Well do you mean the base tax free car is more than 359k eur or that a landed car with option will still be half a million? Which it will. 399k eur (Fiorano pack) + taxes is $500k usd.

    ....although very low CoG and mid engined balance plus 4wd will allow Ferrari to deliver a very different feeling to the handling than for the 812. They can easily make it feel less heavy than it is, especially compared to 812.

    You mean the 356k+tax? It is the correct figure...tax is 20% so the car is 425k EUR base in Europe...

    With such a reasonable price, F8 sales are going to get killed. Many mid-engine V8 buyers only bought the 458/488 because it was the only game it town from Ferrari. It's not that they didn't want a $500K rear-mid, it simply didn't exist.

    Could you possibly elaborate a bit on what gospel is incorrect by a country mile, keeping in mind that the question was about the price of the car (as options will range from zero and upwards based on individual preference) ?
