    8C Spider

    Just bought that a couple of weeks ago.

    It's technically dated (a Maserati Grandsport Chassis, a F430 gearbox) but just look at it!

    And the noise, oh my god the noise! Better than all my other cars. It's a car that acts on the heart!

    It's overpriced, it's hearvy, it drives rather beautifully though, 450 hp is adequate, the engine if the same block as the F430 and the Maseratis so it's robust and reliable.

    It's a car that makes my smile and isn't that all that matters?Smiley

    Re: 8C Spider

     I like this car a LOT, Its like you said, its a car that plays on the heart. It may not be the most technological or well performing car out there but God its pretty!! Its the kind of car that just makes you feel good from just looking at it, I can only imagine how happy you must feel right now.

    many many congrats on my part, and please more pics !!!!  


    Re: 8C Spider

    Thanks!

    Re: 8C Spider

    Re: 8C Spider

    Congratulations!  I've always admired the 8C.  The lines are very classic.  Black is handsome and different. I prefer the 8C to the California for its personality and style.  Much more character than the Maserati as well.  Look forward to more pictures.

    Re: 8C Spider

      Yes the noice, few weeks ago one passed me when I was running... the sound is amazing.

    Beautiful car, probably the best looking convertible. 


    Re: 8C Spider

    Fantastic car. One of the most beautiful ever made. You are, maybe technically dated a bit, but who cares when it acts on the heart! Besides, it's got reliable Ferrari parts so i bet it's still a pleasure to drive.

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :) 


    Re: 8C Spider

    Gorgeous!  Congratulations!!!


    Re: 8C Spider

    Congratulations Futch! Beautiful! 


    Re: 8C Spider

    That´s very nice and I agree with your opinion. I´d prefer the coupe in terms of aesthetics and rigidity but the Spider seems to have a more appropriate suspension setup.

    Congratulations!


    Re: 8C Spider

    OMG... You got one! Congrats Futch - you only live once, well done! You are a real James Bond ;)

    Re: 8C Spider

    Can't wait for the Alfa's to show up in North America in a few years.

    Congratulations.
