Would anyone be able to look past this color combination?

    If you had to ask, you’ve already answered your question, IMO.

    I feel insurance money coming on for this one, I have color blind friends and would never try to pawn this off on them, whoever spec'd this car is going to hell.

    It`s always a matter of taste and maybe the cuoio/red combo looks better in reality.
    What I find weird is the black carpet and black upper dashboard and the rest ist cuoio.

    That looks so bad. It’s probably explained by someone who is colour blind as reds and browns can easily get mixed up. So I can only imagine they wanted some style like Cuoio and Cioccolato but thought the red looked better as it also looks like a brown to them.

    Either way, that’s a strange combo that I’d never want to be driving.

    The grigio ferro is nice; the rest sucks. But, you already knew that right?

    I’m normally a fan of bold and interesting interiors. But this is so lacking in cohesion or taste that it has to be a no from me as well. :confused:

    I don’t think it’s that bad! I’m always curious when people ask though.... it’s your car and your money, the only real question is whether YOU like it! I would definitely see it in person, if you haven’t already.

    Unless of course the real question is, would it be difficult to resell? I think it would certainly take longer since you’d need to find someone with quirky taste. All else fails you can always throw it off a bridge for the insurance money as suggested above ;)

    maybe ask for a discount to compensate for the potential hassle of selling it??

    cuoio and red are not the best match for sure, but when you add the black dash, you now have 3 colors and that makes it almost clownesque. I know for a fact that this would bother me every time I would get in the car. And then, that will also be a conversation topic with anybody who gets in the car.

    For the right price the F12 is a helluva car. I think it is primarily the seats that push the design over the edge. I wonder if you can have center sections of seats changed to solid cuoio?

    I can't get past the exterior shape :)

    The interior is how you know the original buyer had true FU money. He didn't care what anyone else thought. Personally, it's not bad. and anyone bitching about how the interior of -my- Ferrari looks wouldn't be a passenger anyway.

    It's a nice spec. The red on the interior is different but despite it that F12 looks awesome.

    I don't think it's that bad. Not my first choice but the red isn't overwhelming. I like it more than all red interiors, but the question is whether YOU like it and if normally buy and hold or flip shortly after as this would definitely be a tougher resale.

    At least he had the sense to order a black dash to prevent light colored reflection. Maybe they would throw in a pair of those sheepskin seat covers like we all used in high school....

    Well, it’s a “rare color combination 1 of 1 ever produced”

    to each their own.

    But a great anti-theft option

    The body of this one is Grigio Ferro like mine and that's a color I love and one of my favorites. To my taste the interior is a bit of a shock and puts me off the car because I'm used to mine which is very sober with all the leathers in Iroko and the stitches in cream, combining very well with the black of the dashboard and of the various carbon fiber extras..

    If the price of the car is acceptable, I see three options: dye the red leather parts black ..... or ...... dye the cuio parts black .... dye all leather parts black.

    Not because I love black interior (my FF is iroko), but because you can dye every leather black, whatever the "original" colour is.

    Or contact a company like eurospares, that sells parts, and change the interior completely.

    P.s. the red/cuio/black combo is hideous

    not my first choice but interesting to see the exterior color can take either interior color but both together is unusual ... but I have seen worse... someone will buy it but the price will be reflective......
