    Default Dear Santa...

    Yes please, but not in that colour scheme.

    Not sure it will get down the chimney, but Santa can leave it in the drive. That would be fine

    Default Dear Santa...

    Id guess it is worth less on the open market than what he paid for it.

    I see these cars as far more desirable to the person that commissioned it and the value is in the design and manufacture process. The final car itself it only part of the value. All very personal and indulgent.
    Am I alone in that?

    Id look great in the historic racing silver and yellow though

    Whilst some bespoke cars look great, I think this one looks horrible in its current colour scheme. More importantly I always think what else could you buy for the same money ?? I guess whoever commissioned this doesnt worry about how much he spends so good luck to him.

    Bet that cost best part of a million pounds which is half the cost of a Spitfire aircraft. I would have more fun flying the Spitfire

    Which 1/2 of the Spitfire?

    Id take the starboard 1/2 as that has right of way over the port side; at least in boats it does

    Anyway, if you have the money why not! Just look at superyachts. Do you really need three helicopter landing spots? I would have thought two would be sufficient

    He ordered 2. One RHD and one LHD.
    If I win the lottery tomorrow I might see if he would sell one, or just wait for the 812 spider to come out!
    I may be getting an early Christmas present with luck. Pic from a couple of weeks ago. I am not sure where the rest of the car is!

    Didn't realise there was a hole behind the Scuderia shields on the wing. Look forward to seeing the finished article

    Me neither but thinking about it i suppose it is easier to stamp a recessed hole into a panel that just a recess ?

    No doubt someone will now say it is some weight saving activity
