I believe the black one is owned by a certain Billionaire who likes diggers :-)

Where has this been hiding, last CS produced..

Not really hiding. It was at Meridien for quite a while and didn't sell. Now re advertised

Looks great, I do like the CS in black! Shame about the mileage though and destined to be more of an investment equivalent to art than a car.
YOu are right £300,000 in 2016

No, you're out-of-date. Bamford ordered it (as alluded to in the advert) but it is on its third owner now.

Guys had anyone booked any unsilenced track days. They are very hard to find. So far I only found the June bookatrack one and there is also the goldtrack in Jul @ 118db (which is marginal on the CS as I was tested in castle Coombes at 118/119bd
I normally do the Ferrari passione events but unfortunately I am away in may when they have the first one.

A track focused car that is gradually being outlawed from UK tracks.
Don't you just love the NIMBY attitudes of people who buy houses near a circuit and then complain.

Yes it's crazy. Until 2017 there were a few. RMA had a few but then stopped last year as even the current challenge cars don't break 105db. Looks like most have gone that way. Even in the continent it's going the same way with limits on tracks like Spa and nordschleife! Somehow I haven't got my invitation yet for the Ferrari passionné event this year but a friend that had said they had a 105db restriction. It makes no sense as it is a race weekend !!!
It would be a real shame if we end up in a situation that we cannot use the cars on track frown

Been to the Salzburgring and Red Bull Ring this year, both 98db days. Salz they asked us to keep the flaps closed in the morning and at the RBR no issues at all (did kick off the Super Trofeo car though, which was rather loud). Scud, not CS - not sure how loud it is (standard exhaust, flaps always open)

Edit: Just remembered that at the Slz Ring a 360 Challenge car was running. They had to install a back box/cats or sth though (I think) as it was black flagged in the first session

Absolutely no chance with the CS on a 98db
I was at Castle Coombe with a friend in a scud on a 105db day. Scud was fine but CS was way over. I was given many chances by the stewards to be under but when I did go under I was going so slow it was not worth it. Even if you don't push it under acceleration, the downshifts spike the sensors and if you are to downshift and be under 4K revs then you might as well just walk the course !

I was black flagged at Silverstone back in late 2017 (standard and new exhaust) for being way loud (in the middle of the straight, so not downshifting or anything)

Spa is the only place where i always drove without any issues in terms of loudness (always on standard exhaust)


note: dont forget the CS was the loudest road Ferrari ever produced, yes louder than an Enzo

Mmhh that’s annoying indeed. I think at the RBR they look at some kind of average as opposed to a single car triggering the sensor, not sure how exactly though.

So far I have not been kicked off, knock on wood it stays that way. Am usually short shifting in the morning though at around 6k, maybe 6.5k.

I wonder if they were sold or withdrawn...

Anyone at Donington next week?

First of only 2 track days that are unsikenced all year in the UK. Such a shame as it looks like soon we will not be eligible for any track days due to noise. Even the Ferrari days were limited to 105db at Silverstone this year ... despite being race days with challenge cars where owners could drive road cars during the breaks.

Anyhow, I'm really looking forward to it and seeing how the new michelins fare as well as the new geo set up. Also armed myself with Harry's LapTimer for the first time and ODBII dongle to get some telemetry smile
