Hi all.
Just a "Most popular question"

What would (or do) you prefere:

Gears:
F1
Manually

Colour:
Red
Yellow
Blue
Black

??

Personaly i perfere Manually, because it sounds better
when you shift gear *KLIIIING*
I would prefere Red if i had the choice (i dont... DAMN),
allthough the orriginal colour was yellow (wasnt it?)

Go post....NOW!!!! :wink:

I didn't make a poll, because there was 2 questions :up:

Challenge.

I would have a manual gearbox, 'cause it's sounds perfect and it looks fanstastic :D

The color must be black: Every Ferrari is just amazing in black, it looks a bit mysterious... I'm just in love with black Ferrari's (and especially 550's 8) )

I used to say F1 because I was in love with the technology. Soon TVR will have it's zero-shift and it'll make the F1 look like the a manual. Now, that I'm a bit older, I'd say manual.

As I don't currently own a Ferrari and it'd be my first I'd have to say it would be in RED. It's Italy's national racing color and I think that if you're going to have just one it should be in red. I would love to be lying on my death bed running through my memories and having that as one of them.

Now if I could have more than one... that's where the color issue gets tricky. :green:

Have you guys driven with an F1 for extended time before? Have you driven with anger on the track using F1. If you have then I think you'll choose F1. 70% of owners opt for F1. Soon Ferrari will offer only F1 and manual will be on special order. That's the future.

On a street legal race car like a Challenge Stradale, I would prefer a F1 gearbox.

In all others a manual gearbox

F1. while i love getting the thrill of blipping the throttle inch perfect time and time again, usually it's never always that perfect. Over rev and the car leapfrogs forwards, under rev and you're straining for traction.

Nothing beats a well timed accuracy of a computer brain. Blip blip blip.

Upshifting on the other hand....

Depends on the car. If it is a 430, it would be a complete toss up between manual or F1, but for say a 575, manual for sure!

Color, most likely red since it would be my first Ferrari. If it is a Stradale model I'd want Rossa Scuderia with the stripes!

When you're going to sign the cheque and confirm your order, you'll choose an F1, trust me. If it's just imagination then it's different. :lol:

Probably, but then again I wonder if the F1 gearbox would become a novelty. I know if the car was for track driving it would be the F1 gearbox in a heartbeat, but if it is just for cruising, then a manual would be fun!

Agreed, even because when you will sell your Ferrari for a new one, the manual gear will become an handicap.

But for the car of your life, manual is better!

mine would have to be a red one with manual transmission. I don't care if the manual is slower. it is more fun to drive and that's what I want in a Ferrari.
