Must watch For Brakelate

Post by Tetge » Mon Feb 17, 2014 6:17 pm

I have put a link to this video rather than embed it since I went to youtube and put it into 1080p and ran it full screen. All I can say is that if Brakelate had $500,000+ this would be his dream car. And, I highly recommend watching the complete video even if you already saw it before. Of course, having owned a Hayabusa, I realize that some machines are simply too powerful and competent to really use on public streets, but, the Ferrari sure made some nice engine sounds: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cjp1xjOzJqY

Why would I ignore you? What other Terminator can I be absolutely sure that I can beat every single time, even with the slug 5.0 auto car?

That is a beautiful car. The original Top Gear (UK) did a piece on it this past season. I just love the way they make their car films. The F12 would be a great touring car and you could have a Lamborghini Sesto Elemento (Sixth element aka carbon, but you already knew that) as a your track day car. :mrgreen:

Beautifully done video. I must have his job. :(

Silly things like the "Auto Rev Matching" on downshifts with the paddles just gives me the giggles. And those brakes! :o

Nice vid. Great car. I never could get into Ferraris, possibly because of the Ferrari owners that I knew. :whistle:

All these bastards have amazing jobs that I think any one of us would kill for (not literally... well...).

Here's Top Gear's review of the F12...
