    Thank you everyone for your comments! I am definitely looking forward to picking her up this weekend!

    The F dealer is opening the exhaust valves for me. What exhaust should I have put on there?

    Suggest driving with bypass valve open first, that may be enough. (it is for me)

    Excited for your driving impressions after some miles & how it compares to your 458 spider

    BTW just as a heads up did you check the date codes on the tires or replace them? With so few miles I would guess the tires are on the original cup2s which may be close to replacement based on age FWIW

    I'll definitely post after I have driven it more! I followed a lot of threads on here but yours was one of the most convincing arguments to go for the Speciale over the F12.
    Thanks for the heads up on the tires. Yes, I had the F dealer check the tires because I was thinking of swapping them for P0s but the service manager told me that the car is set up to function knowing that it has these tires. I was concerned that these cup2s take forever to warm up. The F dealer service team felt that despite the time, the tires had barely been used and have atleast another year on them. They did swap out the battery and do an alignment though. Thanks!

    Those wheels are a bit unusual as typically they are black. The only thing between you and the road are those tires. New tires would be number ONE on my shopping list. Don't cheap out now.
    Great build spec as others have noted and yours is the old Blu Pozzi which is a bit darker and nicer in my opinion than the replacement Pozzi Ferrari paints the new cars. Nice Speciale find in a rare paint color!

    The wheels do not have to be black. You can pick the rim color. I have seen several Speciales that do not have black wheels. This entire spec was custom order, an msrp of 419. Perhaps the original owner got creative.

    I didn't know there was a difference between Old Pozzi and New Pozzi! Thanks!!

    Yeah it might have been aggressive to do the alignment but they suggested I do it before I take delivery. I am a bit overzealous when it comes to that.

    Honestly, I am not trying to cheap out on the tires, I told them I wanted to replace the tires. The Ferrari service evaluated them and said don't do it yet. I purchased it through the F dealer as an intermediary so theoretically they could have made some $ on the new tires but they just didn't feel it was necessary. I looked at them very closely as well, they look pristine.

    Wow! That spec is fantastic. I'm so happy for you, but not sure I can say the same for the poor previous owner, who apparently never got to know what it was like to drive such a fantastic car. Good thing he lost all that money, saving it for you to enjoy :)
