    Time has come for me to add another hypercar to my collection and since there aren't any F1/P1 LMs for sale at the moment, I was thinking of getting a LaF or LaFA (or maybe both).

    Problem is, I absolutely hate the specs of most of them. Best color IMO that exists on one currently is Giallo Tristrato but I'd like a darker yellow (think Porsche's Golden Yellow - https://exclusivecarregistry.com/porsche/911turbosexclusiveseries/1270420190521081042). Also, IMO of course, but whoever puts a red interior on a car should have it confiscated. And unfortunately, from what I saw most LaFs/LaFAs had either a full red or red piping interior. Ideal IMO is something like https://exclusivecarregistry.com/ferrari/laferrari/104620170509094118, https://exclusivecarregistry.com/ferrari/laferrari/394220180308155320 or https://exclusivecarregistry.com/ferrari/laferrari/101820170505122814 - easy to see the interior in some of the pictures.

    So, the questions:
    -If i were to buy a LaF/LaFA/both would I be able to take them to Maranello and have them repainted and have the interior refitted? Porsche did a few mods to my 918 post-purchase so Ferrari can probably do the same?
    -Would getting closer with the brand (buying more of their cars) guarantee a "yes" answer?
    -If it's a total no, are there any companies that can do it? I know that an Enzo was refitted almost completely by some garage in Italy - https://www.motorauthority.com/news/1104606_exposed-carbon-fiber-ferrari-enzo-up-for-sale ?

    Thanks, Newbie

    Yes, it is possible to supply you with a nearly-new one-owner LaFerrari at a fair price, and with my Ferrari SpA contacts I can arrange for you to have the work done via Ferrari SpA, I've sent you a PM.

    not possible

    the LaF bodies require a special paint and they can only be painted once. the original paint job is forever.

    Please explain why in detail, IMO anything can be repainted.

    Just wrap it... Change your mind 6 months later, wrap it in a new color, problem solved.

    there are several road legal P1 GTR LM's for sale worldwide and a couple of GTR's which could easily be converted at the cost of £500k

    are you looking to purchase in a specific country?

    True, but there's something special about having what's basically a custom spec one off.

    I thought an F-chatter had his LaFA repainted to his trademark TdF Blue?
    Assuming I recall correctly, why couldn't same could be done to the coupe version?

    Yes, but it was a more indirect way to say what was said in post #4. ;)

    And what is a McLaren P1 GTR LM??? I've heard of a P1 LM and P1 GTR, but not GTR LM...hmm...

    All P1 LM's are GTR's converted to road legal spec by Lanzante, they were supplied to them new by Mclaren then upgrades were added.

    There also some customer converted road legal GTR's converted by Lanzante @~£200k, over 30 have been converted so far.

    The 'LM' additions unfortunately can't be retrofitted to road legal P1 GTR's as Lanzante forbids it.

    - it's my mistake as I thought the the OP was looking for a Lanzante converted road legal car, not one of the 6 LM cars.
