    The verde abetone car is fantastic. Never thought dark green would suit the car that well.

    i was there.
    that car was later on the subject of many disputes.

    (funny story about that sale - i drove there in a Rolls phantom, expecting it to be easier to park since they would valet it....no. the palace doorman instructed me to park it myself in the lot.....right next to another 3 Rolls phantoms....ah Gstaad ;) )

    I'm curious, is it considered that a colour change decreases the value of an F40? Or perhaps more to the point, decreases its desirability? Presumably a non-factory coloured car would not be eligible for Classiche Certification?

    I understand it may reduce the appeal to some buyers, therefore may be more difficult to sell, which may force a price reduction, but all else being equal...

    Yes.

    Depends.

    That's my understanding unless it's different in different jurisdictions.

    Correct.

    Rumor has it that if you look close enough that the left hand side head light lense has been shattered. 80473 is finished in Blue Pozzi
