    Two years ago, I spent a May Day driving a 458 Spider through the Tuscany countryside chasing two Italian race car drivers in a new Alfa 4C (they had a business of renting Ferraris and guiding fun drives). I told myself I was going to get one of these.

    After a brief stint with a F430 Spider, I just closed on this one from Ferrari Scottsdale. Hopefully arriving in a week or so.

    Congrats! That’s a very classy looking car with just enough color accents that stand out.

    Congrats! That's so funny, I think we did the same drive in Tuscany, but mine was in 2009 with an F430. I then ended up with my silver F430 which I also purchased in Scottsdale (even had blacked out taillights). Was it Red Travel? I hope to have a convertible 458 as my next car, enjoy it!

    Now that is a great looking rig. Not red. I love that color combo. I might add the car you traded was an amazing combo as well. Very well played bro. All the best and safe travels. Kirk

    It's funny. I am not a fan of blacked out taillights typically - I like a car to be as OEM as possible. But, I get it on this one. The splash of red on the backside would have taken away from the silver, black, yellow combo.

    The Argento paint and silver forged rims look good together. The blacked out tailights integrate nicely with the CF rear moulding. Yellow ties in the calipers, shields, wheel center caps, seat belts, steering wheel center and rev counter.

    Well done.

    Agree on the blackouts, I was able to get mine polished off so they're back to red. A little side project to consider if you want to return it to OEM.

    I may want to do the same. These are OEM lights that were tinted somehow. Can’t peel off according to dealer. The 3rd brake light was an after market purchase as the red on is in the trunk.

    Really thoughtful specs are the best, where the initial buyer puts real thought behind a theme, a flow. Nice find
