Default Hamann Ferrari F430 Black Miracle-rather black disaster

HAMANN’s “Black Miracle“ designed black car body via a foil suggests the appearance of a primary base coat versus a ready-finished lacquered vehicle. It leaves an impression as if the entire car body is covered in velvet. Here as well, comes an idea directly from motor sports racing scene where motor covers are often finished in black matt to aide drivers with glare reduction. The “Black Miracle” design by HAMANN acts similar to a black hole absorbing all light. For the “light at the end of the tunnel” HAMANN provides additional parts following customer preferences in brilliant red, orange or yellow finish. The contrast between black matt and each “luminizing” addition is unquestionably mesmerizing especially for countless admirers at Ferrari meetings. Such an individualized F430 entrance has never been seen before! The highlight of the “Black Miracle“ designs: when the black matt colour doesn’t seem pleasing anymore, the foil can be easily removed.
The noted HAMANN aerodynamic kit for the Ferrari F430 in dazzling colours grasps many elements directly out of motor sports. Front impressions of the F430 “Black Miracle“ through HAMANN’s front spoiler provide a distinct racing sports face and minimize front axle buoyancy. The wide rocker panel wings give a lowering impression. Further reminiscence of sports racing awakens at the rear end through the HAMANN diffuser and a powerful rear wing which provides more downthrust on the rear axle. HAMANN air dams for the downforce generating Venturi Tunnel boosts the effect.

Additionally included in the “Black Miracle“ design are finished aerodynamic parts in red, orange or yellow as well as coloured side mirrors and brake callipers, tinted rear lights, a coloured engine cover framing, dark tinted windows (including front window), bi-coloured leather furnishings (any choice of colour combinations), HAMANN logos within the head rests as well as the wheels finished in the colour of the aerodynamic components and with completely covered black matt rim flange.

The alloys should have been black and the body parts currently orange, dark blue

Agree with Mag.. The RVM's are also too loud.. Would have loved the entire car in Matt Black finish.

Thanked: Once

i wouldnt go that far to call it too loud, as i would love to see an orange ferrari even though i know it wouldnt look half as good as an orange lambo, but the combo doesnt cut it, the flat black really looks nice on car like the SLR and even the F430 but mixing it like this with orange just doesnt do it, they were tying to copy porsche 911 GT3 RS paint scheme(in reverse) but failed quite badly..

espeically those wheels, yikes, it looks bad..actually the shade of orange is a little out there..too fluorescent..

orange gives it toyish look....i dont like the orange bits

rather have it fully matt blacked which might look better than orange bits which makes it plasticky.

looks like they were plannin for this car to be able to look out in the dark with them wheels and stripes and what not.

The full front & full side views are not really bad. cant say about the three-quarter views. The combo doesnt quite make it.

That car is only about a 1:18 diecast model...blown up to look big. Wheels in that colour just do not exist in real life.

Yikes, a stock F430 in red looks much better IMHO. The orange just spoils it.
