Steve Sutcliffe has found a new musical instrument – the £1.2m Ferrari 599 GTO.

It is based on Ferrari's fastest ever road-going model, the 599XX, and weights 100kg less than the standard GTB.

Powered by a 6 litre V8 that produces over 660 bhp, the 599XX will careen to 60 mph from rest in under four seconds and will continue on to 208 mph.

Steve Sutcliffe was lucky enough to be able to drive it on both the road and the track.

    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
