Yes, it does look silly. If they went to that extent, they might as well have made it into a proper targa (like the old 308/328/348/...). And even then, if you want open-air motoring that badly, get a Spyder!
Its custom installed. It look horible too. Not to mention the fact that the car was designed in the wind tunnel for hours. Alls this guy did was alter his airflow over the roof and screw up the car, all for a tiny hole at that. But hey if its what he likes, and its his money, well I guess I can't say much except that I would not have done this.
At the Nürburgring last weekend I saw many customized Ferraris. Most of them had non-original rims installed and most of the time it was less beautiful than the originals. Some had additional spoilers etc. Germans love that stuff. 'Sadest'example in my opinion are 348 rims under 308 cars. It totally does harm to the lines of the car, since the rims are too big for it!
I thought the reason why customizing was so popular in Germany, was because the car falls under a different classification after the modifications and thus, is cheaper to own/run (not sure which: licencing/insurance/taxes or a combo of all three and maybe more...)
There were other colors, but one field was only filled with red cars. What about a yellow 365 GT 2+2, a yellow F50 and a white 275 GTS. Also green 355 spyder and 550 Maranello etc.. Many different colors.
i noticed a lot of different rims also, but there where a few nice ones.
Did you see that 308 with the Modena rims under it?? UGLY!!!!!
or that 512 with the fake wooden steering wheel, what was that guy thinking :question: :x
