Being a relatively quiet Thursday morning, I’m throwing down the gauntlet to the other ESM members to post up their version of the 458 Italia via Ferrari’s very easy-to-use configurator, which can be found here.

Top Gear posted a similar challenge earlier today–to make the ugliest car you can–but being who we are, “ugly” never fits into the picture. Personally I went with something just a little different- 60’s Verde over Nero, with charcoal accents and yellow calipers. Understated & Classic- it’s not the murdered out black, nor is it the “look at me!” red or yellow.

Classic Ferrari Red what?

It's fun pretending I can afford this.

Have at it, gentlemen.


When not at ESM, Chris can be found cycling up and down the Santa Monica Bay, re-engineering a turkey fryer into a pizza oven or reading about survival techniques in the Gobi desert.
