Not being the quickest compared to a Mosler does not make it a slow car! :rofl: I wish they had a Superleggera in the test as well... woulda been interesting.





Our lungs fought for air while piloting the two breathtaking LL5 entries, the Ferrari 430 Scuderia and the Mosler MT900S.

The visceral-thrill corner is occupied by the Ferrari entry, a car so scintillating in its sound and feel that the quarter-million-plus price tag seems almost reasonable. The wailing V-8 revs to the stratosphere, and the chassis stays securely planted at all times. We ran through a first session with the stability control in the “race” setting, which upped the intervention threshold and gently nudged us back in line. Once we got comfortable with the car, we turned off the system and our laps times got about a second quicker. It’s a car not easily screwed up because the solid structure and sure-footed suspension communicate clearly what’s going on at the contact patches, and of course, the automated manual gearbox makes shifting a no-brainer. The Ferrari may not have been the quickest, but it’s the one car we all wished we could take home.
