No, wasn’t keen on that, quite dull in flesh, so I went Rosso Maranello which is a triple layer pearl

super, I think the dark red's suit the 812 very well - mine has just clicked over 600 miles so I can now let it off the leash and explore the top 4,000 rpm, it's a biblically fast and exciting ride.

Similar colour to this beauty we spotted at Le Mans in 2016??

Awesome. For me, this defines the difference between someone who just buys expensive cars and a proper petrolhead. The former is irritated they can’t have it immediately. The latter is like a kid at Xmas. Sounds perverse, but I almost enjoy waiting for a new car, all that reading the reviews/watching the videos every night. Joy.

What a fantastic colour. I would be having plenty of sleepless nights if I was waiting for one of these to arrive!

Thanks guys, its been on order over 2 years now, the Atellier session in the factory was in June 2017 so it's been a long time coming!

The anticipation has been building for some time!

Must be a special feeling watching your own car go through that process-and quite a sense of anticipation. Not sure I'll ever be in that position but it's great to see. Enjoy the car!

Takes about 2 weeks from factory so in a week or 2 I guess

I’m like a 5 year old at Christmas

Something has arrived from Italy.....

Looks awesome even straight off the lorry on a grey crappy day, going to be amazing once it's cleaned and in the sun!

That looks awesome

Heard them on the RBR last weekend - nothing sounds as good as a Ferrari V12 at full chat and a group of them is even better

Enjoy
