My 458 spider

It arrived just after lunch off the truck from Italy and is now being PDI'd

Rosso Dino with Nero leather, Grigio Chiaro stitching, special order Pelle Mandarino centre strip to the sports seats, carbon fibre sport package, carbon fibre outer gills, Scuderia shields, gloss black callipers, diamond finish sports wheels and a few other things such as TPMS, IPOD, pit lane speed control (cruise), satnav etc.

It's a hard colour to capture as it looks almost red under duller lighting conditions but bright orange in the sunshine.

Such a great color. Looks fantastic with the black calipers.

This shot of my newly repainted 246 gives a better idea of the colour under direct sunlight.

does the centre strip on the seats match the paint colour?

Iain- Very beautiful. Great choices on the options, too. The interior is really attractive.

Excellent! Certainly looked like it matched in the pick you posted.

Would love to see the colour in the metal, I suspect its the only way to do it justice.

Enjoy your new toy!

D*mn Iain! I was there a couple of hours ago and the guys didn't inform me of the arrival of your baby! Would have loved to have seen it.

Oh well, another time.

Congrats, she looks wonderful!

They were only told by Ferrari that it may arrive on either Wednesday, Thursday or Friday Onno so they didn't really know when it would arrive with them. I'm amazed at how poor the communication is on these deliveries as I ran a logistics company and we operated to 30 minute delivery window deadlines with our major retail customers and were required to give continual updates on progress if we were not going to meet those schedules due to traffic delays etc.

Wow the last picture looks really nice. Congrats

I love the rim option, definitely the best on the 458 imo.

You'll probably be the only one in the UK with an orange based colour 458, which will make it very eye candy to everyone that looks at it.

I know of at least one other Rosso Dino 458 Italia coupe in the UK. I only became aware of it around 3 months after I ordered my spider so I won't be unique but possibly the only spider in this colour

Congratulations!

Another great addition to the collection. Having followed Amanderu for some time during Fled Scotland, the Italia is an awesome car, in both formats!
Look forward to seeing it in the flesh at some point.

What I meant was, I was at Carrs about an hour after it arrived, must have just been moved to the back. But no worries, I will see it future I guess. Perhaps I might even meet you one day!
