Thank you Justin ,

 

Yes , speed traps work but there's a simple trick to avoid fines .

You just need to slow down approaching every camera , drive under it at 135 km/h  then flaut out until the next camera .

I suggest you to go by train , with the high speed train you go from Milano to Naples in just 4h 13' with any nuisance

Thanks for the tips. 

It is better to travel.....…. I love being in my cars, even with speed traps. I drove to Napoli in my 1973 XJ6 in 2017; I certainly won't be going back to the centre of that city in one of my cars again!

Wow Nicolas, 

 

Legendary😄😄😄, anyway yes, here it is

It surely is! :D

I watched all the videos about it. The sound is unbeliveable. I can't image hearing this in person. Must be unreal. 👍

It's very kind of you, yep, the sound is really amazing and loud, in the cockpit I've to use earplugs db are 129,4

Did you see the last two videos?

What??? 😲 129 db in the Cockpit? That´s just way to crazy, haha.

Yes, watched it on the day there were released. I wondered just how fast your 380 Cup went on the straights. Even quicker than die 430.

Did you measured the power of your car?

yes , 129,4 exactly.

No, haven't  dyno'd  the car, by the looking other cars like the Porsches I think 440 HP, but the most important thing is the gearbox, short ratios give you more torque out of the bends. moreover no Lotus has the power they say, Evora 430 Gt has nearly 410 cv, when I bought the cup and I dyno'd it we discovered the  output was 455 hp
