    I haven’t seen this car in Houston FCA meeting, unless the owner is not a member or local FCA member not involved in FCA activities.

    Boardwalk Ferrari Service Director, Steve Fordham, is on F-chat.
    I would reach out to him, and see if he knows this car/owner.

    I would do likewise with the F dealers in Houston and in Austin.

    Happy hunting!

    Maybe. This is a ParkUpFront event, Cars and Cantina. The owner would need to be a member of that app to be at this meet. I’ll look for him/her at the next meet this Saturday. Image Unavailable, Please Login

    I was able to find and message a friend of the owner.

    The original owner had sold the car, or had it listed for sale. M Brandon Motorcars is where it was for sale from and was on there website about a week, maybe more. The friend informed me that the original owner has since taken the car back with no plans on selling.

    I, too, really really want this spec and prepared to make a generous offer. Due to that and the privacy of the original owner I’m not going to share who it is. I’m sure you all will figure it out eventually. Wasn’t too hard for me.

    This 458 Speciale was originally on consignment by the original owner with my dealership over two years ago, and it was advertised then briefly. I ended up taking the car in on trade at that time, and took the car off of the market.

    I enjoyed the car, very sparingly (less than 200 miles), for the past couple of years.

    A couple of months ago, I listed the car for sale. I had interest in the car, but no one pulled the trigger until the original owner contacted me and worked out a deal to buy the car back. He now has the car and I know that he has no plans to sell the car again. I like to think of it as the car "went back home".

    Almost immediately after I sold the car, I have had multiple people contact me desperate to buy the car. All I can say is, when a special car like this one comes up for sale, you should move fast, because it won't last long.

    And, no, I am not going to share the owner's name or contact info, out of respect for my client's privacy. He is aware of this thread though; if he would like to comment, he certainly can.

    Your description of “ special car” is a relative term. I bought a Speciale with a leather seat since I couldn’t find a Alcantara seat. It bothered me so much I ended up selling the car, when I found one with Alcantara seats. Gold wheels is a big turn off for me. No offense, it is a personal choice of a buyer. This car might be a special car for some one , who is into gold wheels and brown leather seats. Just my opinion.

    Every now and again you run across a car that just checks all the boxes. For me, this one has the exterior color, right interior, right rims. right milage, and right carbon fiber.

    You can add me to the list that thinks it's a stunning spec.

    I wouldn't sell it either...

    That interior color looks so much nicer than all the black ones floating around. It just looks richer.
