Well Done Autocar! I've been snotty about some videos you've done before but this is superb. Excellent camerawork, great sounds, and Steve at his insightful best. Really enjoyed this.

Cracking vid! Can you keep this level of picture quality from now on please? This youtube example is a big step up from the usual highly pixellated stuff..

It's a shame they brainwashed him with marketing about the environment and green issues, Thats the sacrifice of 1 journalist in order to get a nice drive in a Ferrari.

I have gone off Ferrari.

I think the 599 is how a Ferrari should look. It looks pleasingly 'retro'.

Steve, you're a lucky so and so!

With respect

I was referring to your other piece about Ferrari's greenness. This video is of course great, but i was worried it has come at a price.

Too much coming from Ferrari PR, 1st it was the news of a hybrid ferrari with the only real detail was that it gave 35% better mpg, and now we have the green in house factory. Ferarri are doing themselves a disservice.
