Wonder what the upgraded paint cost for this color is? Been thinking of doing the 458 in this color to be different?

Any pricing info to share? Assume it will be at the top of sale prices for this year.

16 m

Hi Mark and Dug,

I have just picked up the car this evening and drove it home, this is my first red car, my first rear engine, and my first spider. I am sure you guys know the 16M is an amazing machine. I know this one is an extra special, but I am not just going to stare at it in my garage, I am also going to enjoy driving it, maybe up to 800 mi per year. I showed interest on this 16M on its 1st day in the show room. Adam, the sales man, told me is not for sale, I told him ..are you playing psychology on me, and I reserved it in its 2nd day. All I know, It was owned by a person lives in New Jersey and it was the last one produced for the U.S and signed by 09 F1 team. I shall receive the Window sticker(393k) any day now.

Congrats, but 800 miles per year? Put 1000 miles on my SV in one month, only 1 in that color in the entire world.

Muftah - that confirms what I was told and when I inquired the price was list plus - it's certainly deserving of whatever price you paid.

Funny you mention the psychology - I got the same feeling which almost worked.

It's an incredible piece of Ferrari history - extremely happy to see it go to someone who is a member here on Ferrari Life.

My 16M was also my first rear engine Ferrari and bought the car without ever seeing it or driving a rear engine Ferrari prior.

Enjoy!

Did you PM Trev? Sent him a message yesterday evening, but have not had a response yet.

My only other issue with my car, that I will attempt to sort out is the Alcantara seats. Little rough feeling. I am going to mix some hot water with Woolite, and spray it on the seats, and then brush it in, and then wipe off with some white terry cloth towels. I am guessing this will improve the feel. Or I can just get some custom made seat covers, like the factory one's, but made in yellow material. The red covers certainly will not work.

The yellow caps really work with the shields and 16M emblems. Wonder what it would cost to do triple red calipers! Would be pretty cool, as you would then be truly 1 of 1.

Mark- Probably not that hard to do, but materials might be a bit expensive. No high temperature paint required unless the car will be extensively raced, and then you just need high temperature clear coat.

Russeell,
Your 16M looks awsome too in this special Rosso color.

Many Thanks,
