I believe this is the article you were referring to:

I got to say: ASTONISHING!

AFAIK, the F458 Italia is priced 2.xxcr (sub 3cr) which is much cheaper than the 599 GTB. So dont you think the yellow 599 should top the list?

Hammer BV? you sure you got it right??

Scocher its the press..they only write what they have been told without knowing the stuff. The famous Ferrari thanks to GS is the 458 so all Ferrari's for them are 458's. What they actually meant is the 599 as the price is of the car. The Hammer is supposed to be the Hummer

OK, so this thread has been dead for a long time now. I am glad to hasve an update for all of you.

The. Owners of the cars that bear the number"3040" have a brand new member to their collection: a Volkwagen Beetle. It is red and White and I have not seen it yet as I cannot imagine it in those dual colors.

I hear the generous couple have loaned it to a friend of theirs who are to wed today. I will post some pictures of their car soon.

This particular Red and White combo looks strikingly similar to those little Nerd Herd Toyota's from the Tv show Chuck. Cute!

And the rear of this very same car reads: "A buggy from my hubby". I cannot find that picture unfortunately. But yeah, it was a birthday gift from the hubby to the wifey.
