    Finally, Also as I notice that the F50 Bolide is confirmed to be a Clay Model, I'm guessing if this is still in the collection and how they move it into the garages.. !!!

    Intersting to see that only very few of the Ferrari Brunei specials were ordered with night vision radar and other special tech features of that time.
    One of the 456 Estates being serviced. Does somebody recognize the red sticker on the windshield?

    It must be some kind of UK or London parking or registration permit.

    Thanks a lot Simon. So this is probably UK based "1XO".

    The car with F50 wheels and black headlights that looks more like a design study than a finished car, is that based on an F50? Does it have a name? I've seen pictures of it before, and it always intrigued me....

    Its called the Ferrari F50 Bolide. I also think that its a design study car or something like that i don't feel like it has an interior.

    Hi guys, quick questions about the I XO 456 Venice.
    It isnt owned by the Royal Family but has the same type of license plate as the BRF has on some of their european based cars (for example the other grey Venice licensed 1 PB, or Jefris Enzo 1 JB)
    Can you sell a car in the UK and keep the original registration on it ?

    Yes. Normally that is exactly what would happen.

    I actually think it is. Even though lighting in the picture of the silver 456 (wheels off) is not best, you can tell from looking at the inside of the B pillar that this car has a tan interior. So does "1XO"

    You're quite right. I didn't look carefully enough. It looked like a black interior at first glance.

    However, there is/was a 456 Estate with silver exterior and black interior. This could be UK registered "1PB" which has been spotted at a dealer in New Zealand on dealer plates.
    This could also be Brunei registered "B1981". It is also possible that the car has been stripped of its black interior, fitted with a new tan interior, ergo "1XO".
    Maybe the silver 456 Estate is the only in existence in this color and it has changed license plates numerous times. I am sure we will find out soon.

    Since the BRF got two silver Buccaneers, safe to say that there are two silver 456 Venice :)

    No they're not the same car. I know both cars, although I've only personally seen 1XO.
