    Listen to that motor. I don't give a crap how many horses you get with a tune on your turbo whatever, THIS is a real engine, and this is the best damn car in the world.

    cool find. one thing makes me laugh though. the little ferrari speedo shows increments of 80, then 120 then 150 then 100 then 210 lol. i guess they mean 180, but it just makes me laugh because they put the horse in there and the gauge isnt even proper. this car is one helluva beast on the twists, what's its skidpad? like 1.2g? lol more? im not too impressed with the sound tbh sticky, the e46m turbo in cabin sound is much more exhilarating. also if you stripped down a turbo m3 like hpf did and have it be stage 3 or 4? would you think that could break the 7 minute barrier? i feel that with a pro nurburgring driver it can easily be done. if the car was specc'ed out as much as this 1.5 million dollar racecar is. add some carbon ceramic brakes, so they dont fade, add ridiculous suspension upgrades. take out all excess weight. but i guess there's something to be said for a car that's ready out of the box.

    edit: just rewatched the back straight. im not impressed for 750 v12 hp to be stuck at 300 (180), it is because this car has sooo much aerodynamics and downforce that the topspeed is halted?

    A turbo S54 sounds as good? Well, matter of opinion. I disagree and the Enzo's V12 is an engine on a while different level.

    There are many modified cars that put down some nice laps but this is a production based example. The only one to crack the 7 minute mark when based on a production example I believe.

    that driver was sick...at the limit for 7 minutes!

    Amazing Car!

    and Sticky im with you bro...thats what you call an engine! NA V12

    and no a hpf stg 4 I6 does not sound as good or as exhilarating and thats a fact not an opinion! LOL

    comparing a tuned m3 to this is apples to oranges. both fantastic...but very diff.

    sidenote- i love and admire hpf wasnt putting them down

    I think the GTO is kinda ugly, 458 all the way.
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    It's just 'OK'


    Edit: nvm the rearend of that car is hideous, reminds me of the panamera which was an automotive mistake.

    I have seen one in person. It's alright.

    The 599XX is not even street legal. Yes it is a production car to break into the 6s but come on. If you want to really compare production cars, plz at least let it be street legal. Take a base 599 GTB and run it on the track and watch it fail. It is heavier, slower and handles worse than a 458. Just IMO, the 599 doesnt turn me on.

    Sober?

    Heh, everyone has their own style. I feel the 599 is just a great design.

    The 599 is a different kind of car than the 458. It still will run circles around 99.9% of cars on the track.
