    Default Ferrari California

    It's really strange given that I didn't like the car when I test drove it and I cancelled my order for one of the first UK cars


    but suddenly I'm now thinking that this car really makes real sense as a family run around

    think I might get one like this

    black with red seats/calipers etc is a nice combo, the dark red though not that lipstick bright stuff.....

    Personally I can not get to grips with the look from the front of the doors back but what did you not like about it when you drove it? From the few road tests I have seen its supposed to be sensational. The bit I like is the fact that it is dual personality with the ability to cruise in auto comfort mode one minute and then firm everything up into attack mode the next. The noise is pretty sensational especially on full upshifts although I am only going on video. If i I was going to order one it would be TDF Blue with tan.

    Too slow and the Scuderia gear box is better IMO

    There are much better cars out there for the money that will still do the "family run around"

    HGTS : probably not for quite a while if they've only just launched it on the 599 and there are effectively no standard cars yet although this seems to be a physical and unsold for a few weeks :

    Funnily enough I was looking at a 550/575 the other day and that too has quite a large rump - I guess we're just used to it by now
