    it's as if R&T arrived in Maranello and they were told "okay, you hava cinque minuto, capisci?" Gotta love Road and Track.

    R&T made out better when they sent Phil Hill over Maranello. He got to drive the then new 288 GTO when no one else was allowed to.
    Rather weak video compared to some other efforts so far by competitors...

    Seriously... a lame video from an organization like Road and Track.

    Almost looked like stock footage put to someone reading from a Ferrari press release.

    They managed to create the first boring video with a Ferrari in it..

    I particularly liked the shot of the fat guy climbing in. although, I guess it is fairly realistic :)

    Video and speaker have NO SOUL! Pathetic! Might as have well been calmly describing the virtues of a walker to seniors.

    They need to hire that "slap chop guy"

    "It's made in Italy! You know the Italians build great things.... Linguini, Fettachini, Martini.... bikini!"

    I think the slap chop guy is "busy" with attorneys and such after beating a prostitute after she nearly bit his tongue off. He may spruce up the Road & Track crew for sure.

    A seriously boring and otherwise valueless video from the amateurs at R/T. They need to smarten up before the magazine goes the way of many other print and web publications--total oblivion

    Why show the narrator holding a mic up to Dario Benuzzi's face, and then not even hear him in the video? Five words of Italian would have livened this thing up by a factor of ten. Why the hokey synth music, can't afford anything real? Why the high school video production quality, are they that broke? If this is the best they can do, they shouldn't...
