Why do this to a 599



If your on here and own this I do apologise as each to there own, but I just don't get the reasoning behind this type of thing I'm afraid.

because, according to his license plate, his is a direct member of the rulling/royal family and more $$$ than grains of sand.

Probably this 'exotic' belongs to an extraordinarily vain and pale scion of that particular ruling house: guy apparently needs a car that makes him look bronzed when looking at his beloved reflection.

Just my somewhat roundabout way of rephrasing some of the earlier comments suggesting this curious choice of paint scheme likely reflects more on the owner than the car...

Poor 599!

A horse is a horse, of course, of course, and no one can talk to a horse of course. That is, of course, unless the horse is the famous Mister F.

Dipping would probably invalidate the warrantee

I have no comment one way or another. Each to his/her own taste. Nevertheless, we all have our own idiosyncrancies, so to speak. However, how I wish I can "use" paper money like toilet paper ? w/ smiles Jimmy
