It's a 2012. Description has the correct detail.
So price wise I reckon it's up there with dealer offerings.

Almost bare of options. Most buyers will be looking for a bit more in the interior. Nice exterior colour and age/ mileage though.
Why don’t they put prices on the website?
Their cars are always at the top end but agree it is frustrating.
Have you seen the Ferrari options price list! I doubt any change from £300k for this spec; including chromed front grille, cruise control, suspension lifter, sports exhaust, Ferrari Scuderia Shields, Electrochromic mirrors, yellow brake callipers, front and rear parking sensors with rear camera, white rev counter, 20” forged rims, ventilated full electric seats, leather headliner, leather parcel shelf, high power Hifi system and tyre pressure monitoring.

Have you got one yet Sommi?

Looked at the FF at Maranello today, much nicer in the metal than in the pictures. Rear space was tighter than I thought mind. Maybe next year for me based on the finance quotes given.

I haven't yet. It would be wise to wait a year or so. There is a bit more depreciation expected. I really did like them and would be the logical upgrade to my QP.
For now I have fallen for the new Atom and made a deposit on that.

HNW = High Net Worth. Believe it varies slightly - but Aston Martin and The major finance houses consider it as annual income of >150k Gross on your last 2 tax returns or a certain amount of savings. It opens up balanced payments schemes (although I personally would never go for them) and a wider variety of lenders

Having looked and driven both - I am sure this will cause controversy - but I preferred the V12 DB11. IMO better looks, more luxurious cabin and would possibly attract more positive vibes from the public. If you got the AMR 630bhp upgrade and some nice quad tail pipes to go with the Mercedes AV tech, it would be a nice package. Does anyone have experience of the DB11? I can predict a few comments already!

Was reading about the new Atom in EVO Sommi......looks like it will be a *******...one change that may be small but for me looks better and should be better when sat in is the single seats. Bet you can't wait.

Have I got this right? You went to DL to test an FF as you wanted a powerful grand tourer that could take the family, as a replacement for your QP. But you end up buying a wildly impractical two seat track-day special? That's quite some change in car requirement!

I tried an Atom a while back. Great fun. But getting in and out, the 4 point harness, all a bit of a p.i.t.a. I can see why most are hardly ever used (or only used for track days). Having said that, maybe that's all the proof required to prove that I'm getting old.

Understand what you mean about age. Years back a company I advised used to sponsor some of the Caterhams and I have done many laps at Castle Combe in some of the fast ones. Decided to revisit this with a Caterham test drive a couple of months ago but just could be bothered with the hassle of it all.

PS I guess the OP is just keeping his QP and adding the Atom as an extra car?

Hi Iain
I have not looked at AM offerings yet. There might be space issues specially in the back as I have growing kids.
But will see if it's a viable option. Definitely looks better than FF.

Hi Andy
I do like the new look. More F1 than before. The wait is a long one though. I have been told 18-22 months which takes it to spring 2020!

Hi Ewan
The Atom is a parallel indulgence:). I have always wanted one. But do not like supercharger whine noise.
The Turbo atom just got launched a month ago and made me dive in.
And as you say, I may have a bit different mind set for these by the time I reach 50, so am getting in to them now while my body can just about appreciate the forces and impractical nature of this beast.

Unless happy to go with the less than attractive Rapide or Panamera, the Granturismo, be it Sport or Stradale, is the only one with usable rear seats. I had an FF the other day for a couple of days and realised that the rear seats are of little use to anyone over the age of 6-7. That’s unless the drives is 5’8” or less.

That gives me 6 years to save for one then! :p
