I came across this wonderful video courtesy of Ferrari World called “duel for the crown”. Not sure why they called it this, but sure they had a reason.
Here we see the much raved Ferrari 599 GTB, pitted against the Ferrari F40, The 599 was designed with several specific objectives in mind: to increase driving pleasure, to guarantee performance (courtesy of technology transfers from the F1 single-seaters), and to ensure comfort, ergonomics and safety. The F40, will an out and out lightweight supercar.
Personally I would rather have the F40 all day long, what an iconic car of that there is no doubt. For me the 599 is too much technology, dare I say an old man’s Ferrari. Lastly, being sceptical maybe it’s another push by Ferrari to sell as many 599’s before its replacement model arrives.
Either way, nice video. I certainly enjoyed it, I hope you do.
