Well, I had the honor and pleasure to drive a Lusso on the Laguna Seca track during one of the helmet off drives. Driving it conservatively is an understatement. I felt comfortable with it, but no reason at all to push it or "find the limits". The only thing I wish I would have done differently is to rev it higher. I figured an older V12 would have a lower rev limit, so I was only going to about 4k. I found out later the red line was more like 7k. So if anything, I was hurting the car by bogging it down and shifting too early. It handled very well and brakes weren't a problem. Power was sluggish, but that was probably more how I drove it. The sounds were great. Shifting was tricky without modern syncros I guess, but I expected the shifting to be tricky. Hell, even my 328 shifting can be tricky sometimes. Why doesn't the Lusso have the same steel grid shifting? I thought this was a trait of all Ferraris. The rubber boot without guides didn't instill confidence. What a great experience. I think the owner who drove a modern Ferrari for the first time and a 355 Challenge at that had a pretty big smile himself.
