    What a day! This week’s episode is brought to you by TCG fan and subscriber, Steve, who invited us to visit his silver Ferrari collection.And drive his 430 Scuderia! At last, we get to drive this lightweight V8 legend.

    So this week it’s the Ferrari Challenge Stradale versus 430 Scuderia in a feature-length review on British roads. Damian has never driven a ‘Scud’ before, and this is the perfect opportunity to pitch the two cars against each other.

    Which car will win? Which sounds the best? Which is the more accomplished overall drive? Will TheCarGuys prefer the Scuderia and replace the Challenge Stradale? Will they ever give the 430 back to Steve? All these questions and more will be answered in this week’s episode.

    Really great video and comparison.
    I have both CS and Scuderia and prefer the CS any day as it is so raw and direct.

        The E46 M3s SMG was much better than ferraris F1 system at the time.

          430 Scuderia with a 6 Speed Manual and Clutch Pedal is Epic!

            Epic video. One of the best car vids I've watched in a while. I love my German cars but would gladly add a Scud to my garage some day. But after watching this, I'm wondering. Seeing the CS and Scud side by side was great. As far as the 2 newer lightweights, pass. I prefer the looks, and more analogue instrument clusters and less nannied drive of the older stuff, hence my love of the 997 GT3 over the 991 and now 992. And I just don't know what I could do with 700 hp on a public road. The 460 ish of both my cars already gets me flirting with license losing speeds as it is.

              I just saw the new Ferrari Roma on youtube. I might be wrong in saying this, ever since the once exclusive company went public they have been pushing out models one after another. Is Ferrari going the way of the big car producers? I clearly recall when Ferrari started trading in New York the shareholders asked Ferrari to cut the price of their automobiles. I really feel for both of you, who must be wondering about the future.

                      Thank you for a very thorough review from someone who have driven both back to back. It appears the CS is more raw. I’m surprised the brakes are better on the CS.

                        you need "only" the 16 M, with the pista spider arriving you could have all 4 of them!!! and all together have even more value........ why should you ever sell the stradale??? you also said that has the BEST SOUND of all the ferrari you drove! :D and they are so rare.

                          That's great to see these 4 together. Tbh... i hate the silver. It's really the last colour I want to see for a Ferrari. Who cares if it's rare or not. I can't get over the traditional red/yellow/black. Just like an aston looks terrible in red or a rolls in yellow.

                                      The CS sounds animalistic.

                                      I’d have the noise as my ringtone. That’s an idea for you create an app with car sounds you have to be used as ringtones?

                                      All the best.........

                                        What an incredible video! I'm not sure I've seen a more absorbing 20 mins of content on YouTube. One question for you... have you seriously considered or ever been close to buying an Enzo?

                                          It has to be the ultimate F series car in my view. Oh and I recently did the Fiorano and factory tour... very envious of he fact you've been able to take to the track! Loving the channel and looking forward to the next vid.

                                        What’s about the yearly service / maintenance costs for a stradale? (to compare with 996 GT3 RS) 🤔😎

                                        Its wondefull seeing all these V8 road racers in one video. Now we know why you and STG value the Challenge Stradale so much. This proves you never know how good anything is till you have tested its rival. (Best not to do that with partners though).

                                          Its worth noting that the 488 Pista is built on a continuation of the 458 Italia. They share the same core, kinda. Which is going on 10 years now.

                                            Interestingly, Chris Harris has chosen Scud over CS or 458 S.

                                                Having owned two of each of those, I agree with you. The performance difference isn’t much different for the Scud and it’s nowhere near as beautiful. The Scud is a fantastic car but the CS is just so special.

                                                      I also agree that blanket legislation is unfortunate but however much we all love Ferrari’s the question of where do you draw the line? 1000 different people would draw it in 1000 different places.

                                                      I guess the answer is to buy a classic Ferrari. 😀👍🏻

                                                          Why did you set the Scuderia on the least performance setting for the entire ride (13:05 to at least 16:12) ? Why not at least use sport or race like you had the Challenge on ? I'm not sure but it might effect throttle response and exhaust note.

                                                          The 430 Scuderia is a far superior to CS. I know you own CS but I would rather the Scuderia as my track car.

                                                              I'd have the CS or (preferably and) Scud over any modern car. They're my dream 2 car garage and hopefully I'll be able to get them both before we inevitably only drive electric cars and the price of modern classics will skyrocket.

                                                              Sidenote: "Thunberg" is pronounced with a hard "t" (=not "th") and hard "g". You also came off as a bit nonchalant to her work... I'm all for electric cars, but obviously I think sports cars can stay petrol-fuelled.
