    the soft top is there for the practicality only. because it is sinfully ugly to such beautiful design. oh i forgot to say that the side mirrors arms are pretty ugly too..

    Ugly or beautiful is in the eye of the beholder....the soft top looks better than the optional hard top, in my view...at least it doesn't look like the coupé with a roof that is not quite right. The side mirror arms with their curves are actually quite neat and it is nice to have certain differences like this with the coupé.

    Do you know if the soft top will be easier to put on than say the 550 Barchetta, Murcielago, Zonda or F50?

    I like the side mirrors.

    Not Huayra beautiful, but far better looking than 458/488's

    Was in Baker St at 6pm tonight, outside Selfridges, stuck in traffic. Next to me was a yellow TDF looking very sharp. Had black livery stripe across hood. The owner was very pleasant, I asked him how he rated it, he said highly. I told him my TDF is due very shortly and that I'm very excited. He said he was also excited, he said his new LaFA is sitting at his dealer now! I asked the colour, he pointed with a big grin on his to his yellow TDF as we pulled away. Nice guy.

    Mirrors look way better on the Aperta IMO. Always thought they looked dumb on the couple. Dinky little arms sticking out way too much. Looked like it was trying to be some sort of insect.

    the Aperta seems a tad unconvertable like to me, would it really give a proper sensation of open top motoring when the 'roof' element is so small anyway

    No matter how small the opening it still lets in the sunshine, stars, moon, and rain. The coupe does not

    Not sure if the shade of white available for the Aperta is Fuji or Italia.
    Looks Italia to me, but could be wrong.

    He has a great collection, but his demeanor makes me cringe. Some people take their social media footprint a smidge too seriously.

    Relatively insignificant stuff, but just general "**** talking" on social media. It's just not behavior I would expect from someone in their 40's. Obviously this is just my perspective, but pretty lame none the less.

    But, still hopes he enjoys the hell out of his car!! It's gorgeous!

    Is the Ferrari "70" badge a delete option or do you have to pay extra for this detail?

    The fact that he had been granted a LaFA allocation and Preston Henn didn't it's just.... "weird" (to say the least).

    Side mirrors, hard top or whatever, one can bi** at the margins, but I think this is a truly wonderful looking car and am just sad there will never be one in my garage. Congratulations on the latest addition to your garage.
