DEBUT FOR FERRARI CHALLENGE STRADALE IN GENEVA
of the Ferrari stand is the 360 Modena-based 'Challenge Stradale', the
marque's only new presentation here. Essentially a stripped-down Modena,
it was presented in two guises. A metallic blue static version is offered
in 'street' trim, while a turn-table positioned red model with full length
stripe, is in 'race' trim.
Basically the 'Challenge
Stradale' is an attempt to counter the threat of the Lamborghini Gallardo.
But with almost no visual differences to the standard model, the whole
design looks dated when compared to the aggressive new Lamborghini, and
Ferrari needs urgently to introduce the 360's forthcoming replacement.
