Finally got my BBS LM's with gold centres, which I think goes great with the green. A Ferrari purist, I am not.

Something about LM’s on 348, 355 & 360 smile
Car looks superb, as others have said, the colour and wheels really compliment it.

thanks for the kind words. I'm about to do another very un-Ferrari thing and stick 1000 miles on it in the next week. Fingers crossed it is uneventful!

Enjoy the trip.

I agree. Brown & Ferrari don't mix. Needs to be much darker in my opinion.

I am not a massive fan of green TBH.

Bottom of the Bealach? Given the width of the road, you’re a brave man taking a 488 up there!

Indeed. Brown is an ideal colour for your Austin Allegro. Doesn't suit your Ferrari 488 Spider so well.

The first 355 I ever saw was that metallic bronze colour and it certainly worked on that. However some cars can carry off a wider range of colours than others. Not sure on that 488 above though.

Had two brown Ferrari's,one 77 Vetroresina 308 GTB ,had red interior to make things even more controversial, Often wonder if it ever had a colour change ,sold it to Nick Cartwright ,wonder if he knows.
The second was a 308 GT4, Lived in the street in central London so paintwork not so good,
Drove it daily as it was , I know it had a colour change to retail red but not by me.

Look at that, how Frank Stephenson turned that beautiful shape into the 430 is beyond me.

Since there was only one 1977 UK 308 GTB vetroresina supplied new in brown, I assume that must be the car you refer to. If so, I believe it was changed to red and went to Thailand. There was one other that was a 1976 car but that is also now red and still in the UK.

I'd need more info on the GT4 to identify if you want to know more on what has become of it.

Another shot of my 612 - possibly my last as it will be on CC soon. Lovely v12 goodness in a gentleman's suit but there are other itches I'd like to scratch.
