    "This implies that customers will raise the bonnet to show the engine off to friends. And that's like taking your pen!s out at a party. It's a terrible thing to do."

    Re: Jeremy Clarkson drives the F599 GTB Fiorano

    Interestingly, I finally agree with him!!!

    Re: Jeremy Clarkson drives the F599 GTB Fiorano

    "for the first time ever, I began to feel that the truly fast car might soon become - I hate to say this - pointless "

    I have already come to that conclusion.

    Re: Jeremy Clarkson drives the F599 GTB Fiorano

    Only interesting complaints are poor headlights and wipers...

    Have a colleague in SF who got his 599 2 mos ago and commutes almost daily in his 599 (65 is his other commuter car....one needs at least 600hp for that 2mi commute through SF's hills )....he's commented that 599 has better traction than 65 in rain driving, but no mention of poor wipers/weak xenons....

    Will get my 599 Wed, so will put it into SF winter rain driving duty immediately to gather more data.....

    I'm fairly confident that Clarkson's complaints are a product of his desire to sound witty rather than fact.

    In any case, don't let those criticisms dull your enthusiasm! Congrats on the 599!

    Clarkson & company are an entertaining group for sure, but they are amongst the last I would consult for a serious review of any car!

    Very well said.

    Nevertheless I wouldn't trust in German car tester either.

    I am afraid you may be right. Honestly between traffic, slow/bad drivers and increase police monitoring there are very few places to exercise your car. I have to ask myself why pay all that money and limp along on the roads.
