    575 GTC Stradale?

    In a recent story about the 575 berlinetta convertible, Italiaspeed also mentioned a 575 GTC Stradale - NOT the new handling package, but a full "Stradale" version along the lines of the 360CS. Does anyone know whether this a real car?

    Cheers, Will

    Re: 575 GTC Stradale?

    Haven't heard of a 575CS in pipeline. Given the tremendous visceral (and practical) advance that 360CS is over the already-outstanding 360, I suspect F could easily sell 100-150 575CS into US mkt...a performance-focused V12 to keep a few hard-core F buyers sated until 430CS comes out...

    Re: 575 GTC Stradale?

    the GTC sounds rather nice as is, and if you could.... somehow get some pork off it.... say from 3700 # down to.... 3300? it might be worth having. whether it'd be more fun than a CS or a 430CS.... debateablely unlikely

    F seems to be porking out with the 430 300 # heavier than a CS... the 612 weighs in like a Quattroporte at 4000...

    I agree. Maybe it's time for another mid-engined V6 lightweight (2,500# wet) like the 206/246 Dino. I saw some drawings that looked promising on the site awhile ago.

    It's more than 300 lbs diff between the CS and 430 isn't it? Ferrari's web site lists the diff between teh CS and 360 at 242 lbs. and their press releases list the F430 as being 126 lbs more than the 360 for a total diff between the CS and 430. Not only is it nearly 400 lbs, it's a whopping 13% heavier.

    "Given the tremendous visceral (and practical) advance that 360CS is over the already-outstanding 360, I suspect F could easily sell 100-150 575CS into US mkt...a performance-focused V12 to keep a few hard-core F buyers sated until 430CS comes out... "

    I agree with you on the number of potential sales. I'd gladly exchange my F1 575 for a "Stradale" version, especially a 6 speed - though I'd imagine such a car would be available only w/F1. Italiaspeed raised my hopes, but I suppose we'll see. I don't see Maranello owners trading for a 575 w/the new handling package (though I might), but I think a true Stradale version would prove very enticing to 12 cyl trackheads.

    I suspect that the "Imola" will be somewhat larger and heavier, though faster, than the 575. It's very hard to make these new sports/GT cars light, very few seem able to do it. Lotus comes to mind.

    Re: 575 GTC Stradale?

    WCH, agree w/you on likely weight increases on upcoming F models....unfortunately, P, Merc and Lambo seem to be pushing out obese comparable cars....so F buyer base may not scream loud enough about porky F cars

    On 575GTC, I'm hearing great things about this car's dynamics vs 575 from jaded friends in Europe who've already gotten/driven this new toy....you may want to evaluate it more closely....
