    I think he called it cappuccino in his interview with Dan Rather, which may have started the confusion, but I don't think he was being literal. Looks pretty much identical to my Cali, to my eyes anyway.

    OP... Great looking spec. With all that cream have you thought about contrast stitching for a bit of contrast...T

    His exact words were "It’s cream and black and I call it my cappuccino". So, right, not being literal.

    Resale will be horrible regardless of color combo, since the car is going to be her daily driver for 3-4 years and will end up with over 50k miles.

    I think the avorio on the Lusso without shields will be a great look. Nice and stealthy by F-car standards...T

    That's the point of it, have a Ferrari daily and minimize the effect on others to make life easier.
    Personally would go for something of a grey shade for even more stealthy look but it is her car and her choice so I'm not getting involved.

    Finally the order is done, March production, should arrive in April.
    After all the discussions about Avorio she decided to settle on Grigio Silverstone with Charcoal interior and alcantara inserts, CF wheel inserts and CF shields.
    Initially she didn't want the shields but after seeing CF on a TDF she ordered them too.
    Very stealthy and unassuming looking car, for a Ferrari at least.....

    Congratulations, I've seen exactly the same spec in a London dealer last month, charcoal leather with alcantara is amazing. It's a very elegant combination.

    In mine and other people's experience the production photos have lagged by anything from a week to a month so it's quite possible your car is already built.

    You may be right, back in 2007 dealer informed me that my 599 was finally scheduled for production.
    Couple days later got another call to come and pick it up.......:D

    That was their Lusso T demo maybe ?
    If so, I've driven it and the interior combo is indeed lovely.
    Would love to see an Avorio car though, as per the OP's wife's original idea .

    She didn't like the idea of paying $12k for it, wanted the car to be more stealthy also.

    Understood. Can you say when your order went in ? We were promised May build, ordered in Jan, and have no news yet as to when build will start.

    According to your time frame I should not expect the car before August or so.
    She is NOT going to be happy, was hoping to have it for most of the Summer and not swap the wheels shortly after delivery.
