    I didnt know all of this info from US site ......

    Here is some info:

    The car is actually called a "Challenge Stradale". It is different enough from a 360 to not share any commonality in the name.

    The actual monocoque is different as the CS has a composite floorpan that very significantly increases torsional rigidity.
    The engine is "blueprinted" and has larger air intakes. (425 bhp vs 400 bhp)
    The exhaust system is COMPLETELY unique (all you have to do is hear one!
    The springs and wheel bolts are titanium
    The gearbox hydraulic system has a presuure of 30 bar vs 10 bar in the 360
    There are only 2 gearchange settings on the CS, sport and Race - in race mode gearchanges take 150/1000ths sec
    19" wheels (Specific to the CS) with CCM brakes
    Different front spoiler, side skirts, engine cover and rear diffuser that generate 50% more downforce than a 360
    No soundproofing
    Extensive use of carbon in the interior and engine bay
    Different dashboard and interior
    3.75 secs faster around Fiorano than a 360 with the same driver
    1.2 secs (only) slower around Fiorano than an Enzo with the same driver
    900 built.
    Production is finished.

    Subjectively: The greatest Ferrari of the modern era.

    As of last friday, only V8s on the production line in Maranello were 360 Spiders (all sold - no new orders taken) and F430s.

    joe - what is your data source for 900 built? there are a bunch of conflicting rumors floating around, and it seem slike even people close to FSpA haven't been able to get firm numbers.

    Blummin' good post Joe. Enjoyed reading that. And quite suprised (but not really!) at some of the things there. Esp the enzo statement. Wow!

    I guess given the right driver, you could beat one easily.
