Boxer-Totally agree with you, it's a beauty. But it's a left hand drive (guess no problem for you) and not sure about import taxes in the UK? Besides that, it feels a bit over priced looking at others out there.
Feel free if you want to have a go at it, I'm not in the deciding mode yet....
But she is stunning!!

That is a fabulous looking 599. I love the colour and the stripe. Wonder how a stripe like that would look on a 360?

I think it will look great! Just go for it, Barry!

Yes, it does look great, doesn't it? I haven't driven it yet due to the weather, but sure will soon. Not in a hurry, though...hoping prices of 599's will come down once the new one is on the market. At these price points they're not likely to sell very quickly I guess.

Price is a bit on the ambitious side but that 599 is stunning.

LHD not a problem and there are no taxes coming into the UK is it is an EU car.

I wasn't a fan of the 599 originally, but this car is changing my mind. It's stunning, and the stripe is very nice.

Of all the narcissists I know, I love me the most.

Stunning, just love that stripe, but why didn't they finish it over the boot/trunk!!!

The price is over ambitious though!

Not sure why they didn't do the trunk, strange....
Indeed an over ambitious price, but that owner has great taste!

Yes, but this one is not going to be mine. Got a few others offered (unfortunately not in blue pozzi...) but with a much better price tag, almost same specs and milage...
(BTW, Peter, up very early or to bed very late?)

I was up very late, think I fell asleep circa 5am and then up at 7.30am to enjoy a day driving the new FF in around the Scottish country roadS...the weather was perfect and the FF performed flawlessly, it's a beast and I'd have one over any other current GT Ferrari if it were priced 100k less, so it's a F car for the future for sure!

I already have the FF down as a 2014/2015 acquisition.

That's the time to buy them, they'll be sub 100k & a cracking good buy by then!

Tremendously enjoyed another great day driving the FF yesterday, this time at a Dealer Event, myself and 5 other good clients of Graypaul Edinburgh met up at a hotel in Aberdeen and we enjoyed the rural roads from Aberdeen past Balmoral Castle, over the ski areas (snow was present but unfortunately not on the roads), through rural Perthshire, Tayside and back to Aberdeen, we were driving for 6 hours in total and Graypaul had provided us with 3 cars to enjoy, temperature averaged 11 degrees celsius and we all had an excellent day, nice lunch thrown in too....well done to Chris and his team at GP Edin, as not only did they provide us an excellent boys day out, they also managed to ensure the weather remained sunny too!

Upshot is the FF impresses me the more I drive it, but....as the first 3 years depreciation will be horrendously steep it's definitely as Boxer says, one to have a few years down the line!

If you haven't driven one, go do so over some twisty roads guys!

It is definitely one Ferrari I would like to own in the not too distant future.
