Mattes in the wild....

gone up my mountain in dry and wet, im very surprised how good the stradale handles, especially with the factory corsas in the wet, it felt much better than the corsas on the scud, maybe because of its 1770 kilos slamming it on the ground.

car still got no pick up and go before 5k rpm, but it really make up for it with the thunderous soundtrack, much better sounding than any of my fcars. it doesnt have the popping or shouting of the others but it makes up for it in high pitch mechanical V8 music ALL THE TIME if u push the race button, and its a much better sounding V8 than my 458.

it also doesnt absorb bumps like the ferraris, while the fcars glides over bumps, the stradale is bouncy and makes up for the lack of electro gizmo suspension with old school hard shocks and springs. it can never be confused with the advance grip tech of the fcars but it is fun in its own right. Cornering takes some thought and planning unlike the invincible 458 or scud.

but all in all, a very fun car to drive and awesome around town..... if not a bit short on power. another 50hp would be perfect, even the dealer is suggesting getting it supercharged by novitec!

What an outstanding Italian duo! Compared to the 458, it isnt surprising that you feel a lack of power in the Stradale.

I'm not sick, but I am not well either

Looks like you had a matt day of fun - the Novitec sounds like a great idea.

Beautiful cars John! I absolutely love the color on that 458!! If Darth Vader was buying a car it would be your 458.

Life's too short to be unhappy!

John beautiful pictures - either you are a pro photographer or hiring someone who is.

Let me add - that Maser is the best looking car of the bunch.
