    Default Spotted: Ferrari 360 Spider

    That Right, I saw a Silver one down at Elbow Springs Golf Course today around 4:00...

    Easily the nicest car I have ever seen on the street...

    Unfortunately, I don't make a habit to carry a camera with my so I didn't get a picture.

    Yeah I saw the same car today to. It had the top up and the guy gunned it down glenmore. That 3.6L V-8 screams like a banshee and sounds absolutely amazing. I think next to the F355 and F50GT1 this is the best sounding new (94+) Ferrari. I tried to pull up to ask him if it was the F1 Gearbox or the 6Spd, but never got close enough. Oh, it had the black screen rear, instead of the solid painted one. Looks much better IMO

    That's the one, except he had the top down when I saw it...

    I didn't get right onto the vechicle so I couldn't tell you what he had for a tranny. All I know is the stick was very small, like 3 maybe 4 inches high, you definately could not wrap you whole hand around it...

    He ripped the engine before it was warmed up!?!?! What a fucking dumbass, those engines need to be at their full operating temp before you can give them without risking damage to the internals. Also, it doesn't surprize me he has the F1 Tranny, although its cool..... the 6spd would be the only true way to drive that car.

    People that do that don't deserve those cars.

I'll get some pics of it one day, didnt have camera the other day. I believe the guy is in his late 20's and he also owns a h2 hummer.
    Im sure its leased so I doubt he really cares about the cars long term life

    But you see that F1 tranny shifts faster and more consistent than someone driving a stick shift could though
