Ladies and Gents,

These are the high res shots from my STO test drive yesterday in Nagoya, Japan. They are unfiltered and uncut and as raw as they can get straight from my camera. I used Nikon Z7ii with 24-70 mm lens.

You can use these photos whatever you like after you follow my youtube channel Santa With a Violin - YouTube. I just need 89 more followers so I can create a channel with customized name. Please help me out guys because I don't want to spend $15 to get fake 1000 subs :)

In my opinion, if you want something that can be considered collectible in the future, this is the car to get. Everything in this car is made from CF (carbon fiber) panels (excluding the top because it is made from aluminum). The glossy CF is an option. Man, just look at how the bonnet (hood) opens it's so F unique like the Miura :) @Lambo2018 and @LHP you guys really made the right choice.

I'm not going to bother you with how it drives because there are tons of reviews already. I will upload a video of my test drive later on. Let me just say that the car was planted during tight corners, felt very lightweight, and felt very fast from 2nd settings. I will never ever use the 1st setting unless it's for cooling the engine. The car is absolutely raw and absolutely made for track, so if you get a chance, please bring it to the track to appreciate its full potential. The exhaust sound is very tamed. I only like the exhaust sound at highest setting during aggressive driving which is quite similar to EVO RWD with Akrapovic.

Norman great photos! You may want to also post them in the thread linked below. ;)

Thanks Albert! Glad you like it! Can't wait to see your photos next month when you get it delivered!

About the other thread, I'm ducking to stay away from the crossfires :)

Great pics..after having seen an STO recently, I happened to drive past a balloon white Performante Spyder yesterday. It is incredible how bland and basic the Performante now appears.
Perf is still very nice with its forged carbon and ALA. But yeah I agree STO trumps them all in terms of its menacing look :)

Okay that kind of makes sense why I am struggling. I think maybe it has to be in park too? I just don't see the point of the screen if you can't have it up while driving. We are already on the brink of crashing every time we attempt to adjust the volume. That screen isn't dangerous.

BTW - I have subscribed to you YouTube.
Definitely not park because I was at the intersection when the screen was up. I agree man looking down on that screen while driving needs some serious adjustment.

Thank you for the subs! I saw your videos and subbed back!

Subscribed. Funny thing is that as a musician and an audiophile I had seen your sensonum Vivaldi video before. A bit off topic, but have you seen this guy?

Yes! I subbed to his channel, bought his albums, and actually had short chat with him before. His recitals in Tokyo were cancelled twice because of covid. I will be in the front seat if he decides to perform again. I have never seen an alien (skill wise) play in real life before 😂

Norman, as soon as I saw post #15, and I am reminded you posted that artist in my "Tunes and Ice" thread many months ago. Very impressive musician.
Yes I remember that fun thread! It went very long to many pages. I wish there is a way to build all the suggested tracks automatically into a track list!

The problem is I like them all and there are just too many options. The dealers configurator is ridiculous! Way too many choices and combinations. I spent a couple hours on it yesterday and I am still if not more confused.
Can't go wrong with any choices. Just be careful the options can get really expensive on top of an already expensive car. I picked mine in config without looking at the price sheet and boy!😂

Norman that looks amazing! Now I’m tempted to switch back to dark color but Blu Cepheus just looks so good 😊
The matte dark paint on that STO was not really recommended by my dealer because they said it was difficult and expensive to fix any stone chips. Any tiny chips would be very visible and would drive ocd nuts. I think bright color or gloss dark paint is best. Blu Cepheus sounds awesome 🤩

Can't wait to see your spec
I think my spec would be extremely basic. But I don't know if I should be ordering one though the temptation is quite hard to resist. That big wing will surely attract lots of jealous cops, though removing it means removing the identity of STO which means may as well get the Tecnica.
