Scag!

I'm happy to report that after much long term deliberation, a V12 has entered the stable and one with a prancing horse on the nose.

First 400 miles just put up on the clock in mainly terrible foggy weather, but the bonding has begun, initial feedback is all positive and when the sun briefly came out and the roads dried up the Scag delivered its first few smiles to driver and 5 yr old co-pilot alike.

Looking forward to building a new relationship!

Congratulations!!

Elegant colour and manual! Haha, you will enjoy that car big time!! Well done, Barry!!

Suggestion; put winter tyres on the existent rims and get a set of Challange style 20" rims for summer play?

Compare it to the 360 ? Does it feels big ? And the brakes ? Congratulations again !!! Well done. Would have loved to share the 575 but this way you will enjoy a v12 all the time!

You can't beat 12 cylinders and three-pedal cars!

I can imagine the grin on the 5-year old's face when you open her up to breathe.
Nice colour too!

Congrats Barry

Probably a little early to start making true observations. Colour - still don't know which grigio it is (getting as bad as Capo... , maybe it's a silver 612 ownership thing?!). I'll find out tomorrow.

Driving - feels big and heavy, but incredibly fast which is somewhat contradictory to first senses. At speed on some tight twisty stuff, absolutely no problem putting it through the bends, but hard to compare it to a mid engine V8, certainly not a pin sharp as that, but then never expected it to be. One thing I was impressed with was how planted it felt on the road, even in bad conditions, greasy surface (and it is in need to 2 new rear tires!).

Brakes - too early to tell. Cautious first few hundred miles meant no hard braking, so cant comment on that. Though I must add that the gearbox was incredible fun I went from exiting the motorway in 6th, to cruising through small villages (still in 6th) to the open road and back up to speed all without changing gear (that was one extreme), but when I chose to play with the 'box it responded accordingly and there is plenty of fun to be had in dropping a gear or two, settling the car and driving spiritedly through the apex of a country road corner.

All in all, it was a relatively sedate drive with some adrenaline intervals, but still to early for a comprehensive review. I'm happy with what I've seen so far though.
