Actually, I'm not a fan of red on the 550/575.

The F355 looks very nice.

Beg to differ on rosso corsa 550/575s. Especially on a sunny day they can look quite good.

Don't care for red 456 GT & 612s at all though.

Great looking F355! Beautiful in blue I saw a Diablo this morning on the way to the gym...not a Ferrari, but beautiful none the less.

Believe it all comes down to which side of the road you initially learned how to drive on. In my case it was LHD and despite having spent considerable time living in RHD countries, I am still more comfortable shifting with my right hand (ie, LHD).

Additionally, have no issue driving a LHD car in RHD country but RHD in LHD always feels strange.

I wonder if there is any difference on the track consider they develop the car LHD?

Funny, I prefer LHD in my ferrari's even though I'm UK based. As Boxer says, it seems more natural to change using my right hand.

Historically most race cars were RHD but with the gear shift to the right of the driver. Reason being that most tracks in Europe run clockwise.

Only in the uncivilised world. Fortunately most of Her Majesty's Commonwealth and former colonies realise that driving on the left of the road with the steering wheel on the right is the customary thing to do. It's origins date back to jousting Knights in medieval times. As most people are right handed, the Knights would pass on the left and hold their jousting poles in their right hands. Or perhaps we just still live in the dark ages

Perhaps? Have you forgotten why you sold your 328?
Look at the financial crisis the U.S had done to the rest of the world, you don't think we are living in the dark ages now.

Mr Archiegibbs - most of the Comonwealth? As the largest country by land mass in the Commonwealth, I think that Canada knows what side of the road to drive on! Hint - it ain't the left.

The gearshift is a jousting pole!

Yea they sure do. That is the regular one I see on a pretty regular basis. The owner is also the owner of a high end jewelry store right down the street from my house. I also see an orange Gallardo and white Gallardo spyder on a pretty regular basis. The first generation Diablos are my favorite though.

I am lucky enough to be friends with 5 Lambo owners including the President of the Canadian Lambo club of Canada so on a regular basis I get to go drive in Urraco, Jalpa, anniversary Countach, 3 different Diablos.

That is absolutely amazing. But your 348 spider is still better

Fair point, but based on head count most of the commonwealth does drive on the left - India, Pakistan, Bangladesh

I concede the point. Does this still make us uncivilized? Well those outside of government I cannot defend but the rest of us?
