    Stole this from Pistonheads -

    June 27 (Bloomberg) -- A German businessman is suing Ferrari
    SpA because he claims his new sports car doesn't reach the top
    speed of 300 kilometers (180 miles) per hour advertised in the
    company's brochure, Bild Zeitung said, citing the man.
    The 60 year-old driver from Berlin, identified only as Joerg
    W., told the newspaper that his Ferrari Challenge Stradale car
    can't go faster than 282 kilometers per hour and he wants a
    refund. The man paid 168,115 euros ($204,427) for the vehicle and
    waited 18 months for it to be delivered, Bild reported.
    Ferrari, which is controlled by Fiat SpA and makes the
    Formula One racing car driven by Michael Schumacher, is refusing
    to give Joerg W. his money back, according to Bild. The dispute
    will now be decided by a local court.

    Then had he bought the Testarossa (V12) he would have complained that it had the big BHP, but was slower than the 355(V8):D , or had he bought the F50 (V12) that it had all the power but was slower than the F40(V8):D

    Two things from this thread would be interesting:

    1) Seeing Ferrari prove (or otherwise) that his CS will indeed do 180mph.
    2) Seeing Stevef run fast.
