    Jamie, I just saw your post. I would recommend that when your son is old enough and has his drivers license, you let him drive the Scud. Last year, when my son was 17 we were out for a drive, I pulled over and asked him "do you want to drive?" The smile and gleam in his eyes was priceless. Now, whenever he is with me, we split the driving duties. I have to admit though, it is difficult to be a passenger in your own Ferrari. All said though, I'm not yet ready to just hand him the keys and let him go off by himself.

    Very true. There is a certain maturity and judgement ability that comes with age. Plus the inflated ego generally fades, which as we know gets us into trouble constantly as it is. There’s only a select few I trust with my scud

    Thanks for the advise Bruce. Its funny how 8 year olds think. In his mind the Ferrari is louder and faster than the Huracan, but I can honestly say that it is well and truly quieter, but in his words as he was travelling in a car in front of me when I passed him in a tunnel in sounded like Godzilla was coming for them. Hilarious. But you can imagine what it sounds like in a long tunnel when a car blasts bast you as WOT at 140mph:):):):):)

    I know ...is a great car but sometimes in the life you like to “ change “ , I think that who will buy my car for this price ,with so less miles ,will do a great deal.

    I agree ... The 599GTO is a wonderful car and if I could only have one it would be the GTO...but I decided I missed my scud and decided to get another ... If I could have gotten the pista I would have gotten that but prefer the scud over the special.......so a new scud will be sitting next to my GTO in a few days...............

    will let you know two different cars.... I like the GTO....but will like the scud as a different car....so which is best.
    both.....
    I have always felt the scud had the best looking back end of any recent Ferrari ...and the best sounding V8.....

    People like to hop around different Ferraris to find what they think might be missing. Sometimes all you really need is a slight change to the car, like a proper exhaust modification and it will feel like a different beast. It will certainly sound better than any new Ferrari coming out, you can bet on that.

    Stock for stock, the Scud sounds 10x better than a 355. Put a proper exhaust modification on both (X-pipe on Scud & Capristo on F355), the F355 still sounds about 25% better. I'm lucky enough to have both, so I'm good in the Ferrari sound department :).

    I agree with the Scud rear. Still fire till this day without looking like it's trying too hard.

    I do think the GTO looks like a much more expensive car. Given the right color combinations and accents, looks like a million bucks. How it drives? I have no clue. Have never even sat in one.

    Agreed, on both my 16M and Speciale, stock exhaust sounded anemic and too low in tone. Added exhaust to both cars and it wakes up the car making it come alive!

    It's an S-line X-pipe. A mandatory upgrade to any Scud/16M
