Hi Chris, congratulations on your purchase. What spec is your car (e.g. colour, gearbox)? A few pictures would go down well!

Here you go. It's a late 2002 F1 model, imported into Hong Kong through the official Ferrari dealer and registered Jan 03. As you can see, yellow with black interior/ roof and remarkably clean inside and out. It has a service history with Ferrari ( I have the bills) and formally owed by a Hong Kong movie star (not Jacky Chan!), also came with the orginal manuals (leather wallet), full tool kit and tyre kit. For a 9 year old car having done 23K kilometers it's about as good as you can find here. There are two downsides to owning a Ferrari in Hong Kong, 1st no where to really drive it how it should be driven and 2nd, with a near 100% tax on luxury cars the intial purchase and subsequent resale price is very high.

Those with keen eyes might spot the drivers wind deflector is missing, a little job for me to do!

Chris- Welcome and that is a beautiful 360. Yellow is my favorite Ferrari color, Giallo Fly or Giallo Modena like yours.

As long as we don't have a hurricane we'll be fine! Too bad you won't be able to drive, though...

Having become a Ferrari owner this week I found myself in the service centre of our Hong Kong dealership. Now I know Hong Kong has a significant number of Ferrari owners, but nothing quite prepared me for the rows of cars parked in the service centre - I was told 60+, quite impressive!

I didn't have time to browse as I was on my way to the office, however I'll be going back next week (cam belt change) to pick up my car. Having seen what's on show I'll have a camera with me and post anything of interest.

Great car with nice colour, Chris! Congrats! You will enjoy the drive in Hong Kong...I used to enjoy many midnight drives on my 456 through the winding road to the Peak and also through Shek-O to the east...

Yes, those two runs were favorites of mine when I first moved to HK. A run up the Peak on a Sunday evening for a coffee or dinner after the tourists had gone was nice, or a mid week evening drive to Shek O or Big Wave Bay.

I've since moved out to Tung Chung so my local blast is a drive around the airport area, or down to Disney Land for a legal drive on HK's fastest highway at 110km/h!!
