There are collectors and then there are collectors. Certain collectors have seemingly unlimited passion and desire for cars. Michael Fux is one of those whose name sparks the latter definition of collector. Mr. Fux is known throughout the industry as someone who painstakingly agonizes over every detail of a car he is acquiring. Known to specify a number of cars in non-traditional color combinations this 16M certainly follows the trend of not following any trend.
Probably the highest option 16M on the planet this is no standard example. Outside, this 16M features 19 inch forged wheels in matte charcoal, carbon-ceramic brakes with Rosso Fuoco calipers, Scuderia shields, carbon fiber headlight buckets, exposed carbon fiber rocker panels, white over-the-top racing stripes, wheel center caps in Grigio Silverstone, and a black convertible top. Not known for choosing standard colors from any catalog, this exterior color was custom blended for Mr. Fux. After many mixings and combinations Rosso Fuoco was created and selected.
If the exterior specification seems extravagant, the interior is even more highly customized. The sports seats are covered in Bianco leather, burgundy Cavallinos are stitched in headrests, contrasting stitching in burgundy, full leather dashboard in Bianco, Bianco leather steering wheel with LED's, leather roll bar hoops in Bianco with burgundy stitching, fire extinguisher, fire extinguisher cover in Bianco leather, center console and lower interior in Bianco leather, seat belts in charcoal, A/C vent dials with Rosso Fuoco accent rings, leather rear wall, white rev counter, dedication plate, JBL Professional audio system, navigation, and car cover. Further still the owner's manual covers are done in Bianco leather with contrasting stitching!
However, what really sets this car apart is the use of colored carbon fiber. Today the practice is standard with many cars and manufacturers featuring exposed carbon in any color one may desire. Red tinted carbon fiber features on the seat backs, side trim, door panels, inner and outer sills, and console trim. The original MSRP was a whopping $393,247 with more than $85,000 in options.
