Henley Square #8211; 360 Challenge Stradale

This I was on my way home from Bikram when I found my dream attainable Ferrari parked on road #8211; a 360 Challenge 360#8242;s are and have always my favourite of the modern era Ferrari#8217;s. The 458 is a automobile but it a little #8216;sci-fi#8217; for my and I think the F430 looks a underwhelming (I#8217;m sure it underwhelming at all to drive though). For my the 360#8242;s Pininfarina lines are jaw dropping, and from what read they contain of the old school hairy chestedness to them exciting to drive. quick if you#8217;re good, but a 360 spit you off if you stuff it up. There#8217;s no computer there to save … or make you look Schumacher when you#8217;re not. The Challenge Stradale is the 360 and a stripped down racer for the so therefore it#8217;s the one I lust

So what makes this funny is that I was on my way home a Bikram Yoga session. For that are unaware, Bikram is a 90 yoga class conducted in a room heated to around As you can imagine you finish a Bikram quite sweaty (that#8217;s the to sweat the toxin#8217;s out), so the sweat dries you just stink.

As I was snapping away I was surprised at how bad I smelt. It was then a tall, well dressed man in his mid approached me. As it turned out he was the owner of the Stradale and had come over the restaurant where he was having to let me know I could get as close to the car as I I was shooting with my fixed lens which meant I had to be a few back to get the whole car in frame.

I guess he was used to dealing gawking bogans all the time, so he was surprised to discover that I how special and rare the Challenge is. We got to talking, me making sure to a distance away from when he opened it up and offered me a sit in it. I how sweaty and smelly I was and that I but then he insisted. I refused a time, to which he replied the use in owning a nice car if you can#8217;t it, hey?#8221;

So that#8217;s how I have this of a sweaty and smelly me sitting in my Ferrari. It#8217;s a shame his was served, as he explained he would taken me for a spin if he had more So mystery Challenge Stradale #8211; if through the powers of the you happen to be reading this I#8217;m up for that spin you like!

There#8217;s actually a in the name.

Challenge: Ferrari#8217;s race cars built for the one Ferrari Challenge race in Europe and the USA. It started the 348, then 355, 360 and so on. their heavily modified FIA GT3 Challenge cars start on the regular production line. The is stripped, they have no deadening and they have window#8217;s so they weigh a bit less than the road They have slightly power, faster shift bigger brakes, better and slightly improved aerodynamics.

Stradale: An Italian word race cars that can be on the road. Essentially, thinly race cars that the necessary modifications to be road and not much else. Hence Stradale #8211; a road of the Ferrari Challenge factory car. So, it#8217;s a road of the race version of the road

The interior is very spartan. The and sills are painted aluminium no carpets or sound deadening. The shells are carbon, the consols and are carbon and the dash is trimmed in With the exception of a roll it looks identical to the interior of the race car. It even from the factory with embroidered 6 point harnesses. versions even had fixed side windows with openers.

The owner reckoned it sounds wild in Race mode up the rev limiter.

He also mentioned of the 4 or 5 examples in Australia, 3 reside in One of which is owned by his brother in

This particular example is a European import.

This is the Ferrari owner I#8217;ve had the of randomly meeting that is a nice guy, an enthusiast appreciates the fine piece of they own. (The was an owner of a Ferrari Daytona I met at Macclesfield )

This has made me better about life and owners. The other night it was a hot evening and I was out running along the I came to Henley Square and a silver F430 cruising in a traffic jam heading into the The driver was clearly fishing for I couldn#8217;t help but think a waste it was, and how that would be much better to a quick hills drive. But chance meeting today has restored my faith that are Ferrari owners out there who their rides.

For those who are currently on a Challenge high, like myself, you may these YouTube clips a antidote. But they don#8217;t work, for me they only the problem worse. I think I that ride#8230;
