    If this guy spent 300 large on the car I'd doubt he'd be whipping it around the track like he claims he would.

    I am curious to understand how user "street" friendly, is the Scudaria? It appears to be less comfortable and as noisy inside as a Z-06. As a Ferrari lover, I am not looking for a fight, and not making a comparison, but wonder how those who own the car (honestly) "feel" about it as a daily driver? Don't misunderstand me, if I had more garage space and could get on the list, I would be tempted, just not sure where to place it yet. Best

    Usually I am on the opposite spectrum when Maher is involved but in the case of Scuderia and the large (if not majority) number of new Ferrari buyers,he is right on the money.
    The example of "overweight gentleman" complaining at "twitchy" handling of his 599 is soo typical,guys talking with their asses instead of brains....
    He is also right about the sad fact that most of these poor Scuderias will never go faster then 70mph ,let alone be "excercised" on a proper track.

    It'd be raw.(rubber floor mats, no carpeting, louder, sounds of road pebbles hitting wheel wells, rougher ride etc.) Just like the CS. Some people love that while others prefer a regular 360/430. It really is an acquired taste and the reality is that it isn't for everyone. A dealer told me that early on there were CS owners who quietly sold their cars because they couldn't handle that rawness.(few actually admitted it though) The 430S certainly is a helluva car but probably best as a "special" car. I doubt that many will see the track, in the US anyway.

    Then what do you think this car was primarily designed for?
