458s everywhere, might as will get a mac

no denying the 458 was my fastest and best all around car, but everywhere we go, i see a half dozen of these, and our 458s are the most optioned and most special in da world!! so many 458s to the point that i dont see 430s any more...

several of my peeps have MP4s on order and are pressuring me to get one. i like one, but u know why i cant.

my CGT can keep up with 458s but its a lot scarier, and with the top down, its as close to a open racer as i'll ever get. will see very soon what a open top does to a 458.

John, do you know how many MP4s have been delivered to Taiwan? That matte black 458 might be the first time I've seen matte black that I like. Thanks for sharing the photos.

2 so far with many coming and half of them belong to people that I drive with

It's actually a factory color Matt grey, there is also a Matt black option.

But yea, it looks awesome :

The Matte finish looks cool, but it is a pain in the butt to wash / keep clean. You can't treat it like normal paint.

Love the Yellow CGT, like the wheel trim you added, my favorite.

Don't go to the dark side, the MP4 is one of the ugliest cars of all time. Just add headers, sport cats and a tune to your 458.

Hi Jon. Quick question where is this place? Looks like a good hang out after a drive.

I ordered my F12 in matte yellow and the people at the factory have told me that is not so hard to wash. For the maintanance there is a special product instead of waxing like for a normal paint.
