Whats your take on the Fuji white. Is it a dead ringer for the Lexus pearl white? Does it look aggressive or passive? Does it show the lines of the car well?

thebimbo,

when were you at the factory that you saw all of those fui whites? One of them might be mine. I was told it was completed on 10/27 and ready to hit the boat any day.

As for the fuji white color, I personally liked it very much in person. Looked more silver than white and changes colors (very pearl like) in different lights. I ordered mine with the black leather and black/silver fabric, xenon light, heated memo seats, park distance. I think for resale, the rarer color might hold more value. The question is, with only 155 to be made for the US, will this car hold any value????

Driving impressions - I said it before, and I'll say it again, the car rides like an older 360. I drove them back to back (when my dealer had the demo) and it was incredible. Soft ride in normal, agressive but manageble ride in sport. Sound in sport is amazing. cambiocorsa is very smooth and agressive as well. I love the car! I am trading my 911 (996) targa for it and never going back!

Formula 1, do you think if you went to the Ferrari/Maserati NJ headquarters do you think they would let you see it before hand? How inviting is Ferrari/Maserati North America to allow there customers to see their cars at that facility?

i was worried about the white piping so I had them custom order the piping in black leather so it wouldn't stand out as much! i did not order the carbon fiber as I liked the alloy trim with the white better. If I got black, I would have gotten the carbon fiber.

I guess the bottom line is I wish there was an online color configurator for both exterior and interior so you can get a better idea of what colors look best. I just sent a letter to Mr. Parlato at FNA headquarters to voice this concern. The worst thing is to end up with a car you don't like. With all the pictures available online now, I'm seeing different combinations that I like. Now its too late to change what I'm getting, but when you buy such a unique car with fabrics, pipings and leathers in different colors you really should be able to see them before you buy. I'm sure all of us bought the car with no clue of what all the combinations looked like.

I agree, all the auto show shots almost don't mean anything because in the real world, I think the Fuji White will look almost like a cream metallic (Lexus color). That in a way worries me because its not an agressive color, but the auto show pictures do look good, but who drives around town with halogen lighting around their car :lol:

I've seen it twice in person and spent a long time with it. it looks agressive. shows the lines the most (to me). it looks silver. in bright light it looks a bit white, but not creamy like the lexus!
