LOL! Wow! I didn't expect that!

Although... I think 13.4 in the quarter seems a little slow for a Ferrari. My 500E will do 13.7.

Looks like one of the smart cars that had one of they Hayabusa transplants. Just listen to the smart car revving it's engine. That's a loud bike engine

I own a Ferrari and people are surprised when I tell them that most will beat it in the quarter. The Ferrari is a race car and is designed with the top end in mind. Mine is slow off the bricks, but by the time I hit 4th, it's around 125-130 and climbing. I doubt he even got out of second in the quarter.

They are not really built for that, but neither are MB's.


I'd rather own the Ferrari.

He turned the quarter in almost 14. 5 seconds in first, 7-8 in second. He may have made it to third.
