Yup something about a overhead cam v12 at full throttle. Funny thing is even their v8s sound pretty good. Maybe have to start saving other peoples lunch money as well. I'm quite willing to skip on the matching luggage for the 599 if this will get it sooner :-)
Sylvie, nice article. I have always been enamored of Ferraris.I saw a Dino inLondon when I was a teenager and it was really something.Besides the beauty of the designs, the sophistication of the engines was always impressive.As for Beth's question about eco-friendly cars, that depends.I understand that in Formula 1 they are using electric boost (sort of a mild hybrid).So, if it becomes something that is used in Formula 1, you should see it in a Ferrari.
There is definitely an allure and a mystique to the Ferrai brand. I rode in one once and it was an exhilarating experience. Nice job of providing background on the history of the company and the manufacturing and engineering processes to produce these cars. I'm wondering given the energy and expense Ferrai put into pulling together a sophisticated green production facility if they have plans to put any of that sustainability muscle into their car design. My guess is not because Ferrai owners likely care more about horsepower and performance.
