Sports Car Market: The Dallara Stradale is an Instant Classic

I spent the weekend of March 10th and 11th in southern Italy on assignment for Sports Car Market Magazine. The purpose? A weekend test drive of the new Dallara Stradale. A handful of leading global automotive journalists were invited to take part in the historic unveiling of Gian Paolo Dallara’s masterpiece. SCM publisher Keith Martin was personally invited to attend, but a scheduling conflict with the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance kept him Stateside. When offered the opportunity to take his place I jumped at the chance. The article that follows is currently in the June issue of Sports Car Market—on newsstands now.
