I was very happy to take delivery of my 812 GTS yesterday, the sun was shining and the car is incredible. A couple of pictures, the colour is Rosso Maranello.

That is exactly the spec I am looking for! Even down to the callipers.

If you ever get bored with it let me know smile

Absolutely stunning, bet you’re chuffed how it’s turned out. Defiantly agree with previous comment, best wheel combo.

Beautiful. Really like the way you’ve given a nod to a traditional colour combo for the marque, but with modern touches like the darker red (which really suits the car) and the red stripe on the seats.

Thanks for sharing, and many happy miles motoring.

Thank you, yes the brilliant silver racing wheels come with the titanium wheels bolts as standard. I always prefer the spokes to be symmetric which is why the zig-zag wheels on the F8 don't work for me. Very different car to drive from the mid-engined cars, very long bonnet will take some getting used to and there's about three feet of car in front of where I can see so caution needed!

Also, I deleted the red leather piping surround to the instrument binnacle which would have come as standard when you choose CLDT - Coloured Inner Details - because it reflects badly in the windscreen. Same on the Roma and they've changed the design on the 296 but still clearly visible. I retained the strip on the top of the dash to break it up and it reflects but of course not in your line of sight.

Interesting to compare the Rosso Corsa 458 with mine, I agree a darker colour suits the larger car.

Really stunning 812GTS in a beautiful colour combo. The light coloured leather has also got the real world benefit of not getting too hot to sit on during a hot day with the roof down.
Very smart decision on keeping the strip aroung the instument binnacle Black as I can attest to the fact that the Grigio Chiaro strip on my 812 does indeed reflect badly on the windscreen

Nice looking car - enjoy.

I do wish that the front lift didn't automatically start coming down at 25 MPH, why not 30 MPH like the roof?

I'm not generally a fan of red Ferraris, but that looks absolutely fantastic biggrin

The perfect blend of elegance and athleticism. Great timing to have an open-top car delivered, hope you get to enjoy the nice weather in it.

Beautiful spec. Congratulations. Are they the matt or shiny wheels? Just speccing mine and can only get matt silver on the racing wheels now.
