i'd go for the gt3 as well. the ferrari is just too much money and i'm not a fan of the black/cf side panels and black/cf gills. ruins it.

We had both at the track on Sunday. Still had the temporary tags on both.
They both go like stink and make incredible noises. The GT3 seems a bit more planted and predictable than the 458. I would hate to have to choose between the two but if I did I'd take the GT3 by a slim margin.

Meh, opinions. I heard the speciale in person, on a track.

Not that it matters, but ch has the same views I share on sound if you watch the video

I prefer the noise of the GT3 too, but it's a flat six thing. The Speciale is a stunner, and I've seen a couple in person; the ones I saw had the CF bits on the side painted. Nobody's bargain shopping in this range, but it's impressive that the P-car gets so close for half the money, down by so much power, *and* with more weight. Whatever, this is so close it comes down to innate biases. No wrong answer here.
