My point of view. I drive what a NASCAR car should be, which is something able to handle another very high speed vehicle on the finest highway system on my planet. Curves are mostly design for 75 mph +. Twisties are not what I drive. Of course, the first reason is I can monetary. Nevertheless, the car. It is the most beautiful vehicle I have ever seen. Beauty is subjective. Therefore, one cannot argue about beauty. It holds the following three world records for the twentieth century. The first two are the quickest 100 miles & 100 kilometers of any production car of the twentieth century. The last record I like the best. Most engines will over-heat and cook the oils at a substance maximum output. My nice 550 does not overheat at maximum speed. My Maranellos maximum oil temperature is 461 degrees at top end. I have not reach the top speed as of yet. Including a change of drivers and fueling, my sweet thing went a shade over 183 miles in an hours time (26 feet short of 184 miles). According to the FIA, my little thing was able to go farther in an hour then anything else last century. Not too many race cars go over this record in a normal race. Sure, some may have an ability to go ahead of me at certain speeds. After those numbers, I will pass you. Even off the line, a few production cars will beat me. Still only the new big brother Lambo will wave Bye bye. Of course, that Italian thing has only been made in the third millennium by some Germans. The more I drive it, the better I like it. It now needs its second major as I have driven past the 60,000 mile mark. Of course, the first was done not long ago. My 550 is the best car I have ever seen in Southern California and I get to drive it. Never drive less than 12 cylinders Sorry, you peace loving French, I have not converted to the metric measurement yet.
