    After 11 months of scouring the internet for the perfect car, I found her. A low mileage Spider in the historical Grigio Ferro, with a Cuoio interior and the CF race-seats with Daytona inserts. The car has practically all the Carbon Fiber options checked.

    I only found one other Ferro car the whole time I was looking; so I am curious if anyone knows the numbers on Ferro 458 spiders produced. There were a few more 488 Spiders in the color, but I was set on natural aspiration.

    I have had the car for about a month and could not be happier. What a sound!

    Nice car. May I ask what year and how many miles?

    Mine is Cuoio with silver stone metallic and all the carbon options except the threshold.

    Do you have Alcantara or carpet?

    In my looking I did not find this car can I ask where you found it?

    2013 with 3106 miles. I am up to 3400 now. I swear the engine bay is immaculate. I don't think its ever been out in the rain.

    I got the car from CJ at Eurocar of Orange county and shipped it up to the bay area. I think I bought the car within 15 mins of finding it online, which must have been soon after they listed it on their website. . . . it has the carbon thresholds, exterior b pillars, dashboard, steering wheel, paddles, wheel inserts, tunnel, and rear molding. The interior is a nice mix of Grigo Scuro and Cuoio. The carpets are Scuro I think.

    I like silverstone metallic a lot as well, great choice!

    I think that ferro is just a little lighter. My wife has a Agate grey 911 and the ferro is a little lighter than that, particularly in the sun.

    Thanks for sharing.

    My spider has beige carpet. Dirt gets ground in and is difficult if not impossible to remove. My solution is black flootmats.

    I think your black carpet and floormats are a good idea.

    Enjoy.

    I ordered that split color dash in my 458 spider and they screwed up the order. It came all black. I always liked that color combo. Great looking car!

    Mine is all black. But after seeing the split is gorgeous. Plus with all that black carpet it would be just too much black.

    The more l look at this beauty the more l like it. Well done. Ciao bella!

    This is a keeper.

    The moral of the story - When you see the dream built, buy it right away before someone else will.

    Strong work, and now please find some tunnels.

    Beautiful! Congratulations. I have been driving myself up a wall trying to find a 458 for a good 6 months now. Working with Ferrari Li and they've been great, but I still search the listings every day and here and there forward cars along to them. How did you find Eurocar to work with? They have pretty much the only 458 I like in the country at the moment and I've been hesitant to have my guys reach out to them just because by the time I get it inspected, shipped, and certified through my dealer its not going to be such a good value.

    It was a very quick and easy transaction. Eurocar seem fairly discerning when it comes to the stock they carry, the car really is mint. As they had just listed the car, there was not much room to negotiate on price. But the spec was so spot on to my requirements, I was happy to pay close to full ask. The car only came with one key, which is more of an annoyance than a real issue.

    Sweeeet looking car.... congrats! If you don’t mind me asking, what was price paid? I this past year acquired my first Ferrari as well, 2007 F430 Spider. Love it, but already looking over the fence at moving to a 458.

    Enjoy

    Nice spec and glad you knew exactly what you wanted and went after it ASAP. Over the years of being a member on this forum, you see hesitant owners waiting on the sidelines and it often seems that the longer you wait...the longer you wait. Obviously everyone's finances are different but you didn't become a victim of Analysis Paralysis and didn't let a few thousand dollars get in the way of securing your dream ride.

    Yes. That 10k really is like a drop in a bucket when you are driving a 200k or 300k car just for fun to begin with. The marginal difference in price will immediately forgotten the moment you sign the DMV documents and driving the car with your dream build home.

    $218k. Probably at the top end for a 2013 spider, but the car is very low miles, loaded with carbon and in mint condition. I don't have the window sticker, but I added up the options and concluded the original purchase price was $330k+.
