    Road test is in: link

    490hp naturally aspirated V8!? 11.3:1 compression ratio [​IMG] Watch that video and listen to it rev, sounds fierce.

    Wonder how many looks I'd get with a Dominos Pizza sign on top. [​IMG]

    Somehow the silver grey color looks better with this Ferrari.

    I wish I can show up in one of these at my high school reunion next year.

    No cup holders?

    11.3:1 compression ratio? Where does one find gas for this thing?

    That might be the best looking car Ferrari has ever produced.

    "Bueller . . . . Bueller . . . . Bueller"

    Anyway, that thing looks incredible! Anyone seen a pricetag yet?

    Probably the same airport where you park your private Learjet. The exterior is sweet, but the interior looks like a Crown Vic with the whole dash/console not connected.

    I've seen $150-180K on a few sites (which would put it in line with the 360), but some sites are reporting north of the 1/4 million dollar mark, which I think is a *tad* too high. I recommend getting your deposit in now, as the waiting list is roughly two years.

    The compression ratio isn't that high. I had a '72 Plymouth duster that was slightly modified with a 14:1 compression ratio. And Ultra-grade at any Mobil station should be able to handle 11:1 no problem.

    All that aside, it is a nice car, but my penis is far to large to need it. [​IMG]

    I rode in a black 360 Stradale (2004) a couple weeks ago. It was mind-blowing! The guy said this particular one was chipped to around 600HP I think.

    Acura RSX - 11.0:1
    Acura TL - 11.0:1
    BMW M3 - 11.5:1
    Honda S2000 - 11.1:1
    Porsche Boxster - 11.0:1
    Porsche 911GT3 - 11.7:1

    He might have made some other mods then, cause I definitely heard the 600 number. I know shit-all about cars you'll have to forgive me. [​IMG] All I know is that it was fast. very fast. And it took corners ridiculously.

    Perhaps, the Novitec supercharger setup for the 360 can yield up to 606hp, but it costs around $100k or so (then you get to upgrade the other stuff, suspension, brakes, etc).

    Either way, it's a nice car. I'm still not sold on the styling of the 360, this new one is a little better but not by much. It doesn't have the same "feel" to it that the old 3 series (308/328/348/355) had. It looks to much like a Japanese designed car. But I'm old school, give me an old front engine 12-cyl car any day (ok I'm partial to a 308 as well) and live with so-so performance (compared to today's car).

    It's still pretty crazy to get this compression with an 8 cylinder, as well as such a high redline (~9k).

    Had one also in high school. Just a little bit of work and I was putting the camero / trans-am kids to shame. Fun car - not fun on the insurance after a handful of tickets.

    LOL oh shit I had a Duster too. It was actually my first car, I think it was a '76 though. A Plymouth Duster is like the perfect first car. No worries if you bang it up a bit. [​IMG]
