grandturismo looking good as a daily drive.

They make fabulous daily drivers. I am on my second now, this time a 4.7ltr "S" paddle pop box.
All up I have done about 40,000 km's in them now.

As for size, they are a full 4 seater so they are pretty long. This becomes evident when you try and park it in a standard car space; but it is no worse than an S class Merc or 7 series BMW which is the competition anyway.

The first one was a 4.2ltr auto, silver with red leather/black carpets. Ash has photo's of it on this site.
The current one is 4.7 ltr "S", Metallic black, red leather/black alacantra seat inserts/black carpets.

FWIW, reliability on the first one was appalling. The second one has had a few minor issues; but is pretty good overall.

I wouldn't bother with a 4.2ltr auto. I don't know why they still make it. If you have to have a slush box, go the 4.7 auto; but the paddle pop manual is so good in it's auto setting I don't know why you would bother.
The sound track in the 4.7 ltr sequential is just EPIC. One of the very best sounding V8's that I have ever heard. Leaves the 430 Ferrari version for dead.

Very elegant  :thumbsup:, IMO by far the best looking car currently on sale and even probably for the last couple of yrs now. I do like the sound of your black/red. Does it have the same wheels as the first ?

beautiful 360c

Thanks. IMO it is an absolutely gorgeous design.
Interestingly enough, it gets more reaction from women than all the Ferraris that I have owned over the years put together.
