Having been fortunate to drive (not own) and work on several different Ferraris since 1962 I can attest to the precision of engine assembly - it's like the inside of a Rolex watch. The sound of the old 3 litre V-12 at 8,500 rpm is sheer music................timing chains, 6 dual-choke Webers and headers............

Well, GM claims the N*'s horrible oil consumption is normal since it's a "high performance" marvel of an engine, so this thing must drink more oil than gasoline. Fo sho.

Anybody else wish they spoke Italian after watching that??? I always forget the elegance of the Italian grammer and accent.

I am Sicilian. I would love to be able to speak Italian. It is the most beautiful language in the world, in my opinion.

Agreed 100%. I could even pass as Sicilian with a nice tan.

The Sicilian comes out very well in me. Dark skin, big nose, dark thick hair, and one hell of a vicious temper. Lol
