I don't often post here but thought others might be interested in seeing another 458. It arrived at my dealers today and he sent me these pics minutes after it came off the truck from Italy with all the transit protection film still on it. I hope to pick it up on Saturday ...... it's going to be a long few days for me
They are the race seat option finished in alcantara and leather with a special request option centre stripe in contrasting leather. The steering wheel thumbgrip inserts in contrasting leather is a special request option in case anyone wonders why they haven't seen it before.
Beautiful - its certainly going to be on the list of cars to replace my 430 in time to come. Though having only just got my first Ferrari about a month ago, the thoughts of changing it couldnt be further from my mind right now.
Not so sure about the racing seats myself - but being a "larger" framed chap, Im not one who finds racing seats the most comfortable of items All the weight saving design is more or less thrown out of the window when I get in.
Beautiful car, I hope you enjoy it - is it humanly possible not to enjoy these cars?
I'm not sure if the race seats are made by Recaro. Ferrari list the full electric seats (option code RSFE) as being Recaro seats in the MODIS system. The RSFE seats are essentially the same seat as the standard seat but with electric motors and some inflatable lumbar supports.
