    Hi
    I joined this forum many years ago when i was originally looking at 360's but ended up with a 996turbo and more recently a R8, fast forward 6 years and I picked up a 360 f1.

    I had no intentions of switching from the R8 but when I seen this car listed , semi local to me in Scotland I had to go and view. Turns out the car was owned by someone I had met in the past through Porsche ownership , and at the time he had this and a 430 Scud.

    I have always loved the look of the 360 Stradale but sadly these are now out of my price range in RHD , so that was the main attraction of this car but also it has good service history and a good original spec pre strad parts.

    So far Im loving the car, it feels more special to own and drive than my previous cars . The looks and attention it gets is crazy and so far has all been positive. Driving feel wise I would say its more inline with my Lotus exige than any of the German cars , but also more in line with the Lotus build quality.

    Thanks for the welcome :)

    Im actually glad i did not buy one years ago , as i went through a spell of only keeping cars a year or so then getting bored.

    I feel with this car it will be a keeper as i have wanted one for so long, and in the mean time ive had some fast and fun cars to fill the gap.

    Wow that's one pretty good-looking stradale clone!

    I thought it was a stradale until I saw the rear bumper and then read your post...i love their looks too...just not sure I like them $100k more than my modena...you did good! Fantastic looking car

    Fantastic looking car! Does anybody know if that is standard or CS ride height? Thinking about switching over to the 19" Challenge wheels, and I would be very happy if my stance ended up looking like this one.

    It is lowered mid way between standard and strad height.
