    100% with you on the black grill. Will it be a F12b or a F12m ?

    F12 Bertlinetta. If i was getting an F12M in March/April it would probably be the Geneva show car! No such luck there! :)

    Yes you're right about the time it's too short for the F12M... your Berlinetta will probably beamong the last made.

    May I ask the others specs ? (Interior, wheels, calipers)

    Nero Interior with Nero Alcantara pack, Grigio Chiaro Stitching, Daytona seats with Leather Inserts between the Alcantara.

    Diamond Cut wheels/Yellow Calipers (as per photo above).

    I'm trying to find out the status but apparently Ferrari are having teething troubles with the new ordering system so 'updates' might not be up to date if that makes sense!

    I can see your difficulty between the black or silver grill. It works both ways. I prefer the silver, its just a little more traditional and to me V12 Ferrari should have metal grillwork. BUT, it does work as black.

    Thanks guys, that's my feeling too.

    When choosing the exterior colour I was originally deciding between Gricgio Titanio with Black grill and Grigio Silverstone with chrome grill which seemed obvious to me.

    Then I fell in love with Ferro which was kind of in between. Anyway black it is and i guess i can always change the grill if i decide to at a later stage.

    Or.......order the chrome grill and buy a meter of black wrap, cut it into small strips and cover the chrome........consider it and make your choice, possibly alternating over the years of joyfully having your cake and eating it.

    Thanks for the tip re the wrap but I can't quite bear the thought of giving Ferrari yet another grand and then covering it up! ;-)

    Chrome grille for me. Would equally choose an "elegant" spec, more than sporty. Something just came to my mind: chrome trim around windows, I find that very classy in mainstream sedans, I wonder if it would work in a F12 (flamesuit: on)

    We are an opinionated bunch aren't we! :)

    I'm sticking with the black grill as i think it works best with my spec. If i had silver calipers and say cuoio interior that would be 'classic' and would warrant the chrome grill.

    I have gone more 'sport', yellow calipers, black interior with alcantara pack so i think it warrants the black grille.

    At the other end of the spectrum would be 'stealth' spec with black wheels (holes!), black exhaust tips, blackened badges etc which again would warrant the black grill.

    Not just black holes but a whole hole car. Who would want such rolling black hole? ;)

    Very funny you said that, I was thinking to myself “Should I send them an email asking for a photo of the spec plaque”. Glad you did! Ha.

    Those are top notch people ... got this in a quick and very friendly answer

    Thanks a lot Jake, if you didn't post the pics of the car for sale I would have missed it

    I need 749K€. Badly.

    The VIN is hidden, but at least I have the spec sheet of Lombardia Libera, really happy
