It is the dream of every auto journalist to be able to get behind the wheel of one of the fastest known cars on the planet and drive it the only way it’s supposed to be driven: face-deformingly fast.
Most of us can only dream of being put in that kind of situation, but for people like Chris Harris, it is a likely situation. These chaps never seem to run out of cars to test drive. Are we jealous? Perhaps. Oh wait, who are we kidding. Of course we are!
Nonetheless, despite our steaming envy for his good fortune, we’re still compelled to show you this three-part video of Harris unleashing the Ferrari 599 GTO out on Ferrari’s legendary Fiorano race track. It’s not because we hate the guy - not hate so much as envy with the fire of a thousand suns – but more so because we love the 599 GTO that much.
It’s a three-part video that Ferrari fans will surely want to watch over and over again, if only because the extended footage of the 599 GTO only makes us long for the days when we’d miraculously find one gift-wrapped in our garage with a big red ribbon on top. Of course, that’s not going to happen anytime soon or forever, for that matter. So, we’ll settle, albeit begrudgingly, on watching this video for as many times as our hearts can take it.
