I ended up spending a bit more than I planned, and bought one of the last, with quite a lot of carbon fibre and a nice interior.

I’ll not be able to pick it up for a few weeks, so I get to read the manual, plan a trip, consider an unnecessary bit of tuning, and buy any accessories ready for when I get it.

So, what’s good to have? Is there a phone holder that people recommend? Any particular way to wire in the battery chargers? Any child booster seats that actually fit in the rear?

Edited to add, it’s a Portofino.

It’s fortunately not actually pink, the dealer took the pictures under their red roof hence the unusual look.

It’s a light silver. It says “extra sample”; does that mean it’s matched to a customer colour sample?

Looking closer, it might actually be pink-ish.

That’s the danger of buying a car without seeing it first.

Oh well.

No one has answered the ops questions.

Most Ferraris I think have a charging point wording, especially if it comes with a Ferrari battery conditioner. But I can’t answer these questions specifically for a Portofino

I have a USB port on the passenger side in the FF where the passenger display is in your car. Not sure if you car has that or if the display replaces that port.

Congrats on the car - looks great

Yep, that looks too colourful to be just the reflection. Looks great though

It will have apple car okay and also a magnetic battery optimiser as standard I believe - my experience of California T is if you park up without using optimiser , run the engine for a bit before you get the roof down, lovely car

Blimey what colour is that… hope for OP it’s the colour of the wing mirror shot which looks Grigio Titanio. Just look on build sheet for paint colour, did you put deposit down or paid outright without seeing it?

That's stunning, though it will probably just look grey once it's out in the daylight smile

Phew.. it’s called Glossy Aluminio. Seems even the personalization plaque has a tint of pink in it. Great Spec.
