    Default Factory collection and 488 GTB running report- will be picture heavy!

    Chapter 1 ...Me........


    So let's start by saying I feel a but bad as I normally post on fchat under the same user name but I'm Getting a bit bored with listening to constant worries about depreciation and lack of car use...

    So thought I would start a thread here with plenty of pictures and a bit of a story about buying collecting and running a 488GTB.

    There will be lots of pictures so I apologise for that up front...!

    So let's start with a bit about me then get on to the car!!

    So I'm not rich

    I live in Devon but originally from London

    Loved owning and messing with cars all my life

    Had a 308GT4 about 25 years ago and did a lot of work on it to keep it running and the car is still on the road and in good shape with another owner.

    Have driven mercs for the past 20 odd years and recently changed to a jag F pace.

    Had about 20 lotus / scimitars / TRs/ most fast Ford's and a load if other stuff to...but now just the F pace and 488...

    So why a 488 and why now......

    1- Always wanted a brand new Ferrari

    2- life is short.....

    3- The V8 coupe to me is the thing I always lusted after

    4- had a dream of picking my new car up from the factory and driving it out of the factory gates..

    So decision made in September 2016 I pushed the button to.order the car!
