    I am not offering, nor do I have the skills, but urban myth suggests they would be competitive with 348's possibly even 355's.

    I am sure one could be entered as a "guest". there would be a volume of work to get it it race spec, but Rich's car is probably up there maybe bar a cage ?
    I'd love to see how well a Ghibli Open Cup would do against them. I know there are different classes, but I imagine it would do quite well considering the power for the size of the engine.

    Not sure this data is to be taken seriously, but it looks to be quite a task for the Ghibli Open Cup to compete against the F355 if the data is correct.

    I think the Ghibli cup is a bit lighter than that. And quicker.

    The Open Cup more so.

    However, the F355's are in the top class in races at Brands so maybe they wouldn't be direct competitors.

    It wouldn't get a look in....old front engine versus mid engine, lower centre a gravity, bigger brakes, lots more suspension development over the years

    Those Ghibli's are lovely but competitive race cars they aint, you'd have to spend a small fortune just to keep up!
