This Journo sums the Scuderia up very well IMO and it's why I think the Scud is a pretty epic modern Ferrari.

There is literally nothing on the market sub $1 million that I would swap mine for. I've owned it for 3 years now and it still gives me a buzz every time I drive it. Who knows, it might even prove to be a keeper; but first I'll have to wait and see what the 458 "Scuderia" brings to the game.

Your car is deranged IMO. Just epic!!

Thanks, the 458's not a bad jigger either  :thumbsup:

I've thought of another couple of ways to make the Scud even better.

No, the thing already has more power than you could ever really need on today's public roads. It's so fast that you are rarely able to keep the throttle nailed to the floor for more than a few seconds at a time.

I am very much of the "insert lightness, go faster" school of thought. Reducing a cars weight pays dividends across all aspects of the performance envelope, not just straight line punch. A standard Scuderia (depending upon options) is up to 110kg lighter than a normal F430. I've taken another 70kg out of mine (to 1300kg on empty tanks) with a series of mods that don't compromise comfort or usability. I reckon I can take out another 25kg by going to proper race seats at the expense of comfort. Then there are a couple more mods you could do (at big $$) that would drop about the same again.

It's also got an extra 35hp over standard by fitting a full Capristo exhaust system. Bonus is it now has remotely activated exhaust valves so it can be either stealthy or ground shaking depending on the mood.

I love it  :D

Sad that I won't be seeing it over the weekend......I've booked for November, if all goes to plan.

I have a feeling that we might catch up sooner rather than later though ;)

With a bit of luck ;)

You don't have to go to that extreme or budget to see how it works. The Lotus Elise is a perfect illustration of the theory  :thumbsup:
