Silver looks great on a Cali

Saw this just parked around Kensington.

Now, I've said it before but I say again since its relevant ^^

I think that California's only look great in Black/Dark Blue and Red.

Never liked it in white or yellow but this was the first time I've seen a metallic silver (it isn't grigio silverstone I think) and it looked superb.

I would upload a bonnet angle of the car but the Cali doesn't look pretty bonnet view on my camera although it did in eyesight.

Great car colour with calliper colour and rim set. Nicely specced.

I like the silver Argento California currently at Silicon Valley. Very rare, as it is equipped with race seats. Good price too at 189k asking for a 2011.

i agree, that Cali looks very nice. For some reason the "Ferrari Red" looks weird on the Cali, at least to me...

Yes that is the car at Silicon Valley. Your original picture I believe is Grigio Silverstone.

Either way, don't show that Cali to my wife. She really wants one...said that's the only F car she is interested in. Not sure why...lol.

Guess Ferrari nailed the Cali on the head...they wanted to get more female buyers and first time buyers into the brand. My wife never was interested in Ferrari until the California came out...

For as good looking car as it is, it's just a little to bland.

Nice...even it's it's common, a white 458 or Cali every 2 min is way better than seeing a freaking Cadillac Escalade every 2 seconds here in Texas!

The other night i was stood outside the hard rock, the waiitng time to get a table was 40 mins but it was freeeeeezing outside.

I knew if i stayed inside and crowded by people it would get annoying.

So I went outside and watched patiently.

In space of 10 mins.

3 458's and an Aventador went past.
