360

was driving on hwy 7 and caught up with a red 360, i was behind him in my 2nd, he floored it so did I. with 2 lights till my exit, i let it go when i shifted to 4th, and he had gained one car length on me. We both had passenger on board.

ferrari sounds mean

3 mins later, i encountered a grey 550, but he was in the opposite direction, that was sick.

you should have told him "nice car" and then ask him "what's the retail on one of those"

Im not sure what kind of car you have...
I'm assuming you have the Estoril Blue M coupe with 280hp?
and you kept up to a Ferrari 360 Modena!?

heres a little story of a 360 racing....

i was driving down hurontario in mississauga comming up to the AMC, when i saw a 911turbo and a 360 duke it out a while back. (damn actually that was at least a year ago) The porsche won, and i couldnt keep up they just left me... Anyway i was just trying to keep up to see who wins.

bascially it went like this, they both launched and the porsche got distance on the ferrari, and then just kept walking away, then they both slowed down and kept going and i turned into AMC, i assumed they where friends.

on a side note, you know those 360s do a 4sec flat 0-60 and have 400bhp right? I think if he was all out racing you, he would have pulled a lot harder, or maybe the driver skill.. but still it`s a 100hp diff there.

Do you feel that you need to justify your bike by beating a high end car in acceleration? Does that make you feel better about your bike?
I'm sure a Ferrari driver's thinking 'Geez, I should have bought a 10G croch-rocket instead of one of the worlds most beutiful, exotic sports car'.....

Probably didn't see the need to downshift, and from the looks of it, didn't need to.
I've done it plenty of times myself.

mine is the 2000 model with a humble 240hp only. and I didn't really keep up with the 360, it slowly walked away from me, 2 lights on Hwy 7 (around 250m...?) he gained more than 1 car length. we didn't start at the line, he was in front of me when he floored it.

it doens't make sense to you? I can keep with the 333hp M3 without any problem. no bs. then again, i don't street race.
