    Hey does that yellow 360 Modena have Enzo rims? It sure looks alot like them if they arent....It looks good though whatever rims they may be.

    Awsome pics though, it is pretty extrodianry to not have a single red F-car in the group.

    Novitec rims - Very similar to the Enzo rims. They look great.

    Beautiful venue, beautiful cars, beautiful photos. I like "rosso corsa" but I enjoy seeing photos without it in them.

    I like the wheels on the yellow 360 coupe. It is an Enzo style with 5 bolts. Is it made by BBS, OEM for F-cars or aftermarket Enzo wheels style replica??

    Where do you get them from??

    Rijk, have you ever been to the Monterey meet? There are so many red ferraris that the non-red ones really stand out!

    I like them. They don't look like a *typical* aftermarket wheel.

    This is very interesting. Before I saw this post I watched the posted video of a rossa corsa 575 and was deeply impressed by the rossa. Now that I see this post without a single red Ferrari, it strikes me as somehow deeply incorrect, or perhaps sacreligious, not to have at least one rossa Ferrari in a collection.

    For the longest I thought red Ferraris were beautiful but too cliche. Now, however, I see a different balance. It is also interesting how no other car looks as good in red as a Ferrari, not Lamborghini, not Porsche, not AM, Bentley, MB, BMW, none of them. (Actually, BMW's Z8 was sharp in red, but it's the exception that proves the point.)

    All of this leaves me with one conclusion. Every collection must have at least one rossa corsa.

    Forza,

    Cavallini

    They are beautiful but I think IMO the wheels are a bit too big for the car. Somehow the stradale wheels fit the CS better although the same 19" size.

    I think 18" is good enough for the 360. I like the modular wheels

    If you think they are too big from the side, wait to you see them from behind - They are monstrous! I think it rocks.
