I have just driven a very reasonable Mondial QV home and would like to express how satisfied I am with the design, engine and overall quality.
The cream leather interior and the huge areas of glass ensure a very good overview, much better than my beloved (and faster btw) 924 GT.
The engine sound I probably do not have to describe here...the basic fun is vroom, clack-clack, vroom, clack-clack and so on.
The fuel consumption is quite competitive, I would say around 11-13l/100km.
I will now start with replacing plugs (upgrading to Bosch Iridium), Kjet injector nozzles, exchange fluids and do some detailing.
Two issues that move my heart at the moment:
I always wanted this color combo and a spider, never found it during the last two years. Probably it wasn't produced like that anyway. Anyone ever investigatet how it could be converted to a spider? After all you have a steel tube frame and while the interior in a spider is a bit smaller in width, I could image the spare parts for the convertible top plus some reinforcment of the tubing almost does the job.
Second; I am very happy with LPG conversion on my '66 Mercedes Coupe. Although it is not a real issue while owning these cars, it is unparalled fun to refuel for about 40 Euro nowadays. Anyone with experience LPGing their Ferrari? For the Mercedes I was forced to do that by means of a Venturi (much like a carburetor) due to registration as an antique car therefore using old age technology. The Ferrari is registered and penalized as a normal car, therefore the road should be open to a controlled loop or even liquid injection LPG setup.
Looking forward to hear from you,
