As far as i know, and im 99% sure, its not Mow-Day-Na, or Mo-Denna,

It's Moh-Deh-Na, no emphasis on any part of it, just rolls off the tongue.

According to dictionary.com:

http://dictionary.reference.com/search?db=*&q=modena

It's mow-de-nah (basically the same as what i said, mow-den-ah). The 'e' is not pronounced 'ay', but pronounced like the 'e' in 'pet' or 'den'.

Im pretty sure the beginning is not pronounced 'mow', like 'row' (your boat). I think it is pronounced the same as "mod"... ill have to ask my brother he speaks some italian.. the "ay" part is definitely not right

dictionary.com saws the 'o' in "mo" is pronounced like "toe"!

But it does have two different pronounciations, I was using the second one.

does he have the paddle shifting on his 360?

Tony_Ensemble

[paddle shifter?]

Yes. Its a very traditional Ferrari. Red with tan, F1, silver calipers, challenge grill, shields on the side (my favorite feature). I will get him to post some pics. But hes not a very good photographer :D. Just kidding Angelo.

Ah! :)

Never heard of them called shields before. Learn something new everyday.

Ah yes, the shields....I love 'em. That is definately one key feature I would want on my Ferrari. It adds just that little bit of extra detail to make it stand out a little more and still look so elegant.:)

well the extra list for ferrari´s...
i think they call it carozzeria scaglietti or something like that.


the shields on the sites is a absolute MUST for me.

I liked it.

The big shield on the F50 in the video is a decal. The little shields on the side are built into the body at the manufacturer. I was going to buy a 360 spyder once but I chose not to because it didn't have the shields. You can have them added. But, it would cost $20K because they need to replace the entire front quarter panels (left and right all one peice).

That is a little too much just for shields!

well even from factory they are not cheap...
more than 2000$ but remember ... it´s a ferrari ;)

Anyone that can afford a 360 modena would have no problem dishing out $2000. How are the shields put on. It sounds like they're not painted

I think there would be another way to stick a shield on without paying $20k. You might not get 100% of the authentic look that the factory shields have, but I'm sure it would look fine.

BTW, your Murcielago is 1,000 X better than a Modena. ;)

You can get a $20 stick-ons. If you dont know what your looking for they look pretty good. But the real ones are seperate badges that are placed into an indention that been stamped into the quarterpanel. So if you know there is supposed to be a bevel around the shield then you can spot the stick-ons a mile away.

Reall? I never knew there was supposed ot be a bevel. hmmm I'll look for it next time I see some nice Mo-deh-nas.
