360 Challenge Pictures

Here are a few, not terrible good, pictures of the 360 Challenge. They were shot inside the storage area before we took it outside.

I will get some better shots in May when we take it out for its first real run of the year.

It is fitted with two seats for taking either an instructor or another very brave soul out with you. For racing, the second seat can be pulled out quickly.

Great pictures, the 360 Challenge is one of the Ferraris that I've not seen in person. I've seen a 360, and a Challenge Stradale. I've even seen a Ferrari F430 Challenge, but never had the pleasure of personally seeing the 360 up close. Kudos on it, and don't have to much fun

What a cool machine! Like Pete said, looks like a tremendous amount of fun. So is the dash blue, grey or green? Hard to tell from this set of pics.

The dash is a heavy grey flet. Not the most attractive thing.

I'm sure you are going to have great fun in it.
But the stickers need to go.

Archie, peel them stickers off and it looks like the Royal Arch and Pete Enterprises would have a fresh canvas for our next masterpiece!! We'll let Boxer take care of all the custom bodywork on the track but I think if we are going to sponsor this car then it really needs some of our custom paintwork to become the "R.A.P.E. Mobile"! Kind of like the Batmobile only cooler.

A couple of weeks ago, Boxer offered us a lucrative sponsorship deal, $1 Million. I said that you'd pay and I'd do the artwork. I forged your signature on the contract, it's watertight now. Looks like we've got a great deal.

congratulations, it looks fabulous despite the stickers!

and I have a brave soul, does that qualify me for passenger? I have rides on both a F40 and F50 on my CV, if that helps to get a better place in line! hehehehehe

Don't you worry Louis, Archie is going to design an awesome wing for this car! All the rage lately has been about "downforce"; Bah! We are going to utilize aviation technology and create LIFT! Boxer won't have to worry about whether to pass on the inside or the outside. Over The Top Baby!!! Yeah!! The R.A.P.E. 360 slamming down on the pavement directly in front of you at 200 mph!! What a Ride!!! We have some experimental afterburners we plan on using in the car. We learned a lot about afterburners after we burned up that 430.

It really depends on the car and how it is set up. Really only the GT cars run with the wing on.

When Boxer said he wanted a wing, we thought we'd give him a wing to be proud of. If anyone saw the new A380 land at Heathrow yesterday, you will know it's wingspan is as wide as a football pitch. Or should I say it was. Honestly, I don't know anything about how they found the aircraft minus it's wing this morning, and it's only a rumor that it is in Pete's garage.

We've just got to work out how to stop Boxer cruising at 30,000 feet when he goes over the top now.

The ability to achieve flight is our offensive strategy for racing. A means to get ahead of the pack. Our defensive strategy is to utilize this A380 wing to make the car as wide as the track. That way no one can pass. Man, why Ferrari didn't hire us on I'll never understand.

Fixing the wing and getting the lift to take off shouldn't be a problem as long as Boxers doing 180 MPH+. Where we might struggle a bit is the corners. We need to figure out a way of ensuring Boxer doesn't scrape his wings on the tarmac when he takes chicane or a hairpin bend.

Being a passanger in a 360 Challenge on a track can be a "greening" experience. I have had passangers emerge rather "greener" in their facial color after a lap or two.
