I was able to take a few photos of our new Ghibli this weekend.

We have 600 miles on it and love it more today than the day we bought it!

Nice pics of the Grigio Maratea - really shows the depth of the paint. Can't wait for mine!

Great Photos

I was able to take a few photos of our new Ghibli this weekend.

After a 3 month wait for a custom order I just picked up a Maratea after changing my mind at the last minute from Grigio. Glad I did. As a Professional Photographer for 30 years what sold me on this car was the beautiful lines. And after looking at countless photos from others as well as my own, I have to say the car looks best in photos from a lower angle and from a distance. The close-up wide angle shots distort. Your first photo is a definite winner. That's your "photography lesson" for today. Great car. Enjoy and congratulations!

Thanks everyone!

Actually, I did take the same photos at a lower angle also (I always do) and most of them looked worse than the higher angles.

I do take some further back, but the problem there is too much other stuff, not enough car in the pic unless you zoom in dramatically. Many of the pics I posted were actually taken from a medium range (15-20 feet back), some with the extra stuff cropped out.

The shot that was distorted noticeably in my first set was the frontal view and personally I like the distortion at that angle. Looks aggressive!

Here are some of the same shots, lower angle.

That's my opinion for the day! :)

it is a beauty! i have the same color combo, rims. The only difference is the wood panel, I went with the Ebano and I add 35% tints on mine. The one item I still second guess is going with the polished rims over the painted. Not sure if anyone has any thoughts on the polished vs. painted Urano rims in this color combo.

Hi ByronM, any chance you could put some pictures up of your car, it's the same spec as the one I have ordered and would love to see what it looks like in the flesh :)
Forgot to say, I've opted for the polished finish as I thought the contrast was stronger but each to their own I guess :)

Beautiful Bryon!

Love the red calipers - wish I had those!

As for the interior trim, both of the woods and the carbon fiber look wonderful. I oscillate between each one being my favorite and honestly don't know which I would pick if I were to order a car today.
