Have been trying to choose between a few F cars as my first
originally was thinking 348 or TR , but as pointed out by most including Boxer the prices of the F355 are not to far off the prices for the 348 and TR .
Have done a bit of research and production numbers for the F355 are a lot lower than the TR , just wondered if anyone knew how many RHD F355 there are ? i would prefer the GTS to the berlinetta but its only a perference rather than a need .
On a sub note and Why i posted here , I live in Perth Scotland and there is a real lack of F cars around , Marlins location says it all
Scotland almost a ferrari free zone
why is this ?
Is it the RHD numbers or something totally different ?

Cheers

Sandy

Strangely enough I've seen 48 Ferraris up here this year already.
328 GTS at the end of our road today.
They are out there, but don't come out much !

It's not just Scotland that's quiet, I live and work in the Midlands and this year I have only seen half a dozen in open road driving (excluding cars at FOC meets). Strangely I've seen more Lambo's on the road than F-cars this year, I saw 3 Lambo's and no Ferraris over the Easter weekend.

That sounds like quite a collection of F40's, must have been awesome. I really wish I had gone now. I've had a lot of busy weekends recently and the next 5 or 6 are taken up too, so I had planned a quiet one at home, but now really wish I'd gone, Silverstone's only 35 miles from my home.

I saw a photo of Rod Stewart and his Enzo last week, and wondered how many of the 399 (less the 65 that have been written off, according to TG mag) are in the UK. I saw a couple at Donington a few weeks ago, and I believe that celebrities like JK, Nick Mason, Roger Walters, Rod Stewart, Eric Clapton own them too.
Anyone know how many Enzo's are in the UK?

I know this is a bit of a late reply to this, but for completeness there were a total of 950 Ferraris (i.e. 950 different cars, including competitors) at Silverstone over the Ferrari Racing Days weekend. There were 45 F40s present, but I think only 43 took part in their track parade. F40NTR is chassis number 84764.

On a separate note, regarding Archie's Enzo question: Firstly, I don't believe as many as 65 have been written off. The number in the UK keeps changing as they are traded internationally. Romans International in Surrey, for example, told me that they have sold 28 different cars and over 30 in total as they have sold some more than once. Also, although Ferrari say they made 400 Enzos, in fact they have made a fair few more than that. The worldwide 'spotters' list is currently at something like 430+

I don't doubt your info, I picked that info up from last months Ferrari 60th Anniversary edition of Top Gear Mag. We all know that journo's don't always tell the truth;)
Always useful to have another expert on the forum:)
