Here's my spec, as it currently stands, for my April 2012 458 Italia.
Two-tone: Nero Daytona with a red metallic roof. What red is still up in the air, it will be a metallic mid-tone red, current favourite is Rosso Rubinho Mecalizzata.
The look I am going for is racy but classy. So racing seats with 4 point harnesses. The interior will be two-tone as well, black leather with bordeaux alcantara. The alcantara is much less dark than on the pictures, and it should brighten-up the cabin. To get a bit more frivolity, I am using bright-red stitching. The horsies on the headrests should look great in bright red.
I'm going to opt for quite a bit of carbon fibre as I don't like the aluminium in the cabin. This means the centre console, dash, paddles, sill plates, and steering wheel will be CF. The only CF outside the cabin will be the engine manifold, I saw this on the 458 Challenge and it looks fabulous. Expensive, though!
There are a couple of more options but none that affect the general outcome. Personally, I love the fact that each car is so customisable these days. The likelihood of any other 458 being the same as mine is very small indeed....
I'm very excited about this - I think I specc'd an amazing car.... I hope you agree.
NOTE: the bordeaux alcantara is much lighter in real life than on the configurator pics here....
P.S. Andrew, can you please change the thread prefixes so that I can select something that matches my pending car? Personally, I think the prefixes are a waste of time, but maybe that is just me. Never pay again for live sex! | Hot girls doing naughty stuff for free! | Chat for free!
