It goes without saying that when you build one of the world’s fastest and most powerful road cars, there’s a certain amount of bragging rights that comes along with it. That’s exactly the case Ferrari has built for itself when it introduced the world to the Ferrari 599 GTO.

It only seems fitting then that the boys from Ferrari took their latest pride and joy out for a nice test run around their own circuit in Mugello. Driven by the venerable Dario Benuzzi, Ferrari’s long-standing roadcar test driver, the 599 GTO was officially unleashed at the Mugello track and in true Ferrari fashion, they recorded the whole shebang for the rest of the world to watch and drool over.

It doesn’t take a whole lot for the rest of the planet’s population to fawn over a Ferrari, but when we’re talking about the most powerful car ever to come out of Maranello, it doesn’t take a whole lot of exaggeration to say that a lot of people will need to wipe off the drool on their faces after watching this video.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy.

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
