360 Challange Stradale question

Discussion in '360/430' started by F355_Berlinetta, Aug 8, 2004.

  1. What colours does the 360 Challange Stradale come in? Is it avalible in Rosso Corsa? Because I saw one in red but it wasn't called Rosso Corsa, it was something else.

    Rosso Scuderia is the new red introduced with the Stradale. The car that the Vancouver dealer had was in that color.

    You could pretty much order it in any color you wish.

    that is correct.

    the VAST majority of 360CSs are in RS.

    the RS red has a slight orange tinge to it.

    Here's a picture I took today before our drive. The Stradale in front is Rosso Corsa. The second Stradale behind it is Rosso Scuderia. A bit "orangy" in the sunshine.
     
  10. Speaking of the 360 Challange Stradale, I have two more questions:

    1. When you turn the steering wheel do the paddle shifters turn to?
    2. When you press the START button, do you just press it or do you have to hold it down until the engine start?

    No, the paddle shifters stay in the same place. the only disadvantage to that is if you have turned the wheel to a full lock position(say in a slide) then you cannot(or extremely difficult-unless you take your hands off the wheel-not recommended) change gears at that particular moment if you need to .

    You hold the START button until the engine starts

    The advantage, however, is that you always know where the paddles are. Whether you can get to them or not is another story. The alternative being the BMW way of affixing the paddles to the wheel which gets me completely lost if I have to move my hands while turning. - Tim

    I have an M3 with SMG and a CS with the F1 system and also had a 360F1 and for small steering inputs (<1/2 turn) I prefer the SMG system were the paddles move with steering wheel, however for larger steering inputs the F1 system is better as you know exactly where the paddles are....my 2cents

    the pictures doesn't do Rossa Scuderia any justice...
    I too thought it was a bit "orangy" but when i saw it in real life compared to the Rossa Corsa...oh boy the Rossa Corsa looked dull.

    I tend to agree. The scuderia looks that bit more alive!. Really accentuates the car in a very favourable way.

    Yes, but the BMW SMG also has the shifter in the middle of the console as a back up in that situation.
