    Yes,its the test drive at the factory. Evey f-car goes through the test before they ship them. This blew the waterpump. Fixed and shipped.

    The coolant header tank exploded. An air lock in the cooling system will cause a sudden steam vaporisation and the power of steam is not to be underestimated!

    Various examples of each model are test driven in all climates. Some are driven for the sole purpose of seeing what breaks first.......dream job I reckon!

    I know people who have that type of job, but driving Volvos instead of Ferraris. From what I've heard from them, it's a blast for a short while then it get's really boring. I guess that the same profession but testing Fcars stays interesting a while longer, but after that...
    I wouldn't mind doing it on weekends, tho. ;)
