    Could i still order a new Challenge Stradale

    Hello Guys,

    One question; could i still order a factory new Stradale?

    From some sources i've heard and think to remember somd posts to claim that as well - it's limited. But no official source did mention that and even the offical Ferrari website, as well as Ferrari UK and Ferrari Germany do mention it as Cars Today, or production cars.

    Does anyone of you know whats the point here?

    Cheers!

    Floren

    no

    Re: Could i still order a new Challenge Stradale

    thanks

    but why are they still putting it on display as a production car?

    best, floren

    where?

    Re: Could i still order a new Challenge Stradale

    just everywhere, check out. ferrari.t, or ferrari.co.uk or ferrari.de. first and third link will guide you to ferrariworld.com, and it's lined up as a todays or production car.

    if i go for a used one, most relaible sources tell to by one that has constantly been in use. what dou you think?

    best, floren.

    The point probably is that they do not keep their web site up-to-date.

    Re: Could i still order a new Challenge Stradale

    Could be the point.

    But it would be a bit ridicoules for Ferrari, as it would be for almost every company.
    And it would make sense, cause you could go on buying brandnew 360 spiders almost two weeks ago. Can still get the old, till it's succesor arrives!?

    Best, floren

    yes, that's the point. heck, ferrari themselves say it is NOT a "360" challenge stradale but instead a challenge stradale yet their web-site said the contrary for quite a while even after someone rec'd a response from them that they were going to correct it.

    as for whether to buy a well used one or a garage queen, i don't know what to tell you. that said, the ferraris (and porsches) you will have the most trouble out of are in fact the garage queens who are never opened up and driven as designed. proper break in and maintenance are obviously important considerations too.

    Re: Could i still order a new Challenge Stradale

    ok, so look out for a good used one.

    a mechanic once told me that one could see buy looking at the exhausts colour if the car will come with trouble or without, the good ones look shiny with a glance of colour from the hot exhausts, the bad ones look rather shiny with a glance of bronce, or mellow gold, maybe with a bit a oil.

    did you hear anything about that?

    best, floren

    nope, first time i've ever heard that.

    Re: Could i still order a new Challenge Stradale

    ok.

    When the strad was officialy launched at the 2003 IAA in Frankfurt the PR Guy told me that it would come with NAV if ordered with stereo.

    But, does it make more sense without? Is NAV such a heavy advice in terms of weight?

    Best, floren

    traffic pro's NAV, as is in the carrera gt, adds very little weight (maybe a lb for the antenna).

    Re: Could i still order a new Challenge Stradale

    ohhh man, good luck with your decision- i can only wish one day i can think about getting something like a Challange Stradale... that has got to be the BEST looking car in the entire world, i love the 360 Challange Stradale!

    good luck

    Re: Could i still order a new Challenge Stradale

    Yeah!

    @ben: there is a large independent dealership in south-germany which has several strads on display equipped with NAV. maybe as an aftermarket thing.

    Best, Floren.
