For those like me who have never had a new Ferrari, does the factory send you regular updates and photos of your car being built?

I think I’m used to some fairly swift stuff but this car is astonishing.

It’s genuinely scary it’s that quick when you open it up, but still such an event even at low speeds.

Amazing breadth of ability, certain keeper.

You’re going to love it

It is a great car Bertie, I’m really loving every second in mine.
As you say, it’s got such a breadth of ability in pretty much any condition but requires respect when pushing on a bit.. be nice to have a breakfast meet somewhere soon for 812s !

That's a really beautiful colour you have. Can't wait for mine to arrive. The dealer took me for a very short test drive a couple of years back, it was epic!

Love these cars, beasts! The wheels are really not to my taste they are in fact a bit jazzy.
Photo above with the black wheels is more my cuppa.

Absolutely agree re ‘scary’ - it’s not just the reach of performance and how it’s delivered, it’s also the noise which is so angry at the top end. I get out of mine after a spirited drive feeling like i’ve just downed 4 expresso martinis, completely wired.

Great photo above, it’s best angle and love your colour choice - mine doesn’t photo so well in blue pozzi but i like the low key look.

A Yellow one drove past me earlier, only caught a glimpse but the sound is something special.

Congratulations guys. Brilliant cars and beautiful specs. I will admit upon reading this thread that I’m tempted to trade the 430 and 612 for one of these or an F12. Ferrari at the top of their game - and let’s face it Enzo believed only in 12 cylinders up front.

Would love to see a photo of yours. Was tempted to go blue pozzi but didn’t in the end. Sounds like you’re enjoying yours, keep doing so!

here u go, as I said it doesn't really photo well due to how dark it is, crappy I-phone and my own personal inability to manage anything IT related successfully.
