Nice colour change, Is the drivers door open? Looks to be a big gap there unless it is a reflection.

I think the door is open because you can see a little gap at the top of the window which happens when the door is open. nerd

Looks very good with those wheels. yes
Well spotted, yes the door is slightly open, I literally just jumped out the car to grab a couple pictures as I didn't have any. Ferrari panel gaps can be bad but luckily not quite that bad biggrin

E, is it this car?



Swiss registration, plate started VD, and previously in London. I suspect it's not, but not so many in that colour, even though I think it's one of the best colours for a 599!
Nope sorry, not my car, as already said that one is LHD. Nice spot though!

Nice new toy!

All you need is a nice QV to complete your collection!

Been busy this end too, but will try to come up very soon with the old girl and will let you have a wee drive. Not offering to sell her and don't want Diablo Pete taking out contracts on me!

You are putting a nice wee collection together

That should be them now:




A stunning looking car Lambo! I'm not normally a fan of darker alloys but they really set the car off. Hope it gives you many miles of driving pleasure!

I went from a 612 to a 599 ('09, so leaner burn too)..........and the 599 makes the 612 look like a camel.

They REALLY go through fuel like almost no other car.......especially when you put your foot down.

Do you know your current mpg John?
Just curious as Chris Harris said it was scary how quick it went through the tank.

Would love to add a late 599 with HGTE Kit to the F355 and F430 spider but the above really worries me.

With fuel prices only ever going one way to have a 599 as my daily drive ( which is what I had in mind )and having a heavy right foot is just not practical.
Also because of the running costs inc fuel they are going to continue to depreciate at a rate of knots.

Think they are fantastic cars at fantastic value for money currently but see them becoming the bargain of the century in the future

Really?

I'm in a 599 at the moment with a 458 Spider on the way and was thinking of a 612 to sit next to the 458, back seats for the kids etc, but you worry me now!

think he menas the 599 is the bad one, mine is certainly ridiculously thirsty and from what I recall of earlier ones this so called lean burn one is no better redface
