    I find it hideous, too. But where do you think Ferrari should draw the line and refuse a commission?

    I don't think they should. As awful as this is, the guy got what he wanted, and Ferrari got their money. I actually think it shows company integrity that they WILL fulfill a customer order like this even though everyone at the factory was probably hating every minute of it.

    Aesthetically, this all yellow thing is pretty awful in my book:

    That said, people probably thought this combo was questionable at the time. I think it's amazingly wonderful.

    Seems an odd decision from the jump to order a Ferrari in what looks to me like an iconic racing Porsche color - Gulf blue.

    The interior is definitely overdoing it, but this car was never going to be subtle.

    I think a Porsche in this color with the interior totally in the darker brown seen on the bolsters of this car's seats would be quite nice.

    The one kudos I would give this car is the decision to do the rear diffuser in the body color - not typical. Of course those points are immediately deducted for putting the Scuderia shields on a road car. Boooooooo.

    Nah, that's okay. I like boobies [​IMG]

    On second thought, if (example) someone bought this car, could they get it repainted? The interior seems beyond help which is exactly why this car is so hideous, but if someone doesn't like the exterior I guess a respray can be done. The more I look at the exterior the more I like it but the interior sucks.

    Not surprised, in the least. UAE sheikhs have some crazy tastes..

    Or lack thereof.

    WTF is wrong with rosso Ferrari, anyways?

    Is that supposed to be the Moroccan blue? It may make some sense of it if that was the case...

    Christofuh, your avatar looked like a set of balls when I first pulled up the page. Then I realized.

    JB


    JB: Your first impression of the avatar says volumes. Maybe you should just come out of that closet.


    +100. That Jetblast post is much more disturbing then the Ferrari.

    Yes, I realize how weird it sounds now. Just stating what I saw. Considering I'm still talking with the same girl I have been for a while now, that might say something.

    What's really disturbing is how obsessed Americans are with sexuality. Isn't that each person's own private affair?

    It does, and not in a good way.

    It should be.

    If I wanted an opinion I would have asked for one. You don't know the current circumstances, and I'm not about to hijack this thread by stating them.

    Zjpj, that gold Ferrari is gorgeous.
