Finally saw the 458 up close and personal. The Pearl Yellow is stunning

    Got to see, the 458 in the 3 layer Pearl Yellow yesterday. I was down to picking Giallo Fly or Rosso Corsa for my spec. Now I have a new $27k problem. I really, really like the Pearl. It's stunning. It's going to be very hard to order plain old yellow or red after seeing this car. I also want the new challenge grill. This car will be in 16M territory soon. I also loved the full carbon with Black Interior.

    Agree. Just be glad you don't live in Hong Kong as we have a 100% tax so it would be a 54k problem!!! If you drive your car a lot, remember that stone chips aren't so easy to fix on 3 part paints

    I went to NewPort beach Ferrari in so cal yesterday... 2 458's there (and another under cover sold car)..

    there was a white one and a giallo one...

    OMG these cars are gorgeous!! Sell your soul gorgeous!!

    BUT......is it me? or is the front TO HIGH!! so much space between top of front tire and wheel well!! (and there were no lift system on car..so that aint it!) you can almost fit a tennis ball in there!!

    compared to the Scud they had next to it...it looks down right silly!!

    they do seem to come from the factory a bit high...bumper height regs? there's that red car with black lip that was lowered...looks much much better. but of course, you'll really need that front lift system then:)

    Not so bad here in Korea, 'merely' a 40k problem ;)

    Actually I was browsing through the atelier book today and read about some colours I have never seen on any Ferrari road cars:

    Rosso Formula 1 2007
    Grigio Freddo
    Giallo Sole
    Blu 3 Strati

    Anyone have any pictures/information on these?

    I believe the Rosso Formula 1 2007 colour was first seen on the 430 Scuderia press car. Unfortunately I'm having troubles with finding decent pictures of it - perhaps someone else will have better luck. But for what it's worth, it is *stunning* IMO.
