Did you see it in person? I guess you have to see it in person, I find the color to be very "cool" as in easy on the eyes - opposite of warm. I think it is beautiful.Bazil said:The only reason I didn't buy it was the colour - it was hideous. I spent ages trying to convince myself I liked it, but I just couldn't.
I did see it in person, as the dealer is not very far from me. It was in immaculate condition - it really did look like new.Enzo250GTO said:Did you see it in person?
That's pretty much what I did!!! I'd been looking for so long for a Testarossa/512tr in good condition, that when I found one I desperately wanted to like it - it was agonising!!Dr. Bob said:Take a chair, sit in the showroom, look at it for an hour or two, and you'll buy it
yep, i'm also like that360 Spyder said:. Then again, I like the colors that are not seen as often.
Yes, I think that reds and yellows show-off any fins / ducts / scoops best as they have a higher contrast to the black shadows. On the other hand, metallics are best to flatter a curvaceous body as they produce a more gradual reflection of light over a curve, rather than a sharp cut-off. Well it seems to work on evening gowns!!Bazil said:The Testarossa is all about visual impact. Its design screams "80's excess" at you. I felt that in this colour it just lost a lot of that impact. I struggled to see the curves of the body, and the fins - simply because of the colour, and that was what put me off.
That's exactly what I meant - only you've explained it considerably more eloquently that I!!4kids3fish said:I think that reds and yellows show-off any fins / ducts / scoops best as they have a higher contrast to the black shadows.
...and would probably hide a lot of detail when in shadow.
