Top Gear’s Stig runs wild on-board the Ferrari 599 GTO

The man all of us could only wish to become - The Stig, of course! - isn’t especially cordial when it comes to wrestling away the keys of the fastest and most powerful Ferrari in history out of Top Gear’s hands.

When Top Gear managed to get a hold of the Ferrari 599 GTO to tape a segment for one of the episodes in their 15th season, "Signor Stiggini" wasted little time getting to know the supercar. Four short videos were captured during the Stig’s commandeering of the 599 GTO and in typical Stig fashion, he went completely balls out on the 661 horsepower thoroughbred, fashioning in a couple of blistering laps and a few screeching drifts along the way. Only Mr. Stig can get away with something like this.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

That was fast and amazing turn. ABS, Traction Control are really working well on the GTO.

This is clearly a joke people. This is just a clever way of keeping the white stig around.
