You've got the wrong number, John. Siegfried Linkwitz must have had the Ferrari 521 in mind - what else:

There can't be any doubt that the sharp contrast between the edges of this Sergio-Pininfarina-designed Ferrari 521 S Berlinetta Speciale from 1969 and the expressive curvature of that thing on top of the car have been the ultimate inspiration for his LX521.

Never seen that before - the car that is.

Are you missing the smooth curves over the roof or the curvaceousness of the sculptured sides? What do you think the woman on top is suppose to represent, a wedge?

Technical aspects only, of course. Perfect dipole figure 8 perhaps? No excessive bloom in the top department for sure - compared to the late ORIONs.

You want to know what is really funny? The red on the Note II is actually a Ferrari color, Rosso Barchetta. I had the pain laying around 'cause I was spraying some out to see what it looked like when I was considering buying an F355 last spring. Unfortunately the car didn't pan out.

The reflection of the light in the picture makes it look a lot redder than it actually is. It's more burgundy under natural light.

Great build indeed, and your review gave me the kick to build one/clone.

Would you mind sharing the color code/brand of that red? Really nice!!
