    Seems like a lot of fun (and work ) behind the steering wheel...

    Re: evo TV: Ferrari 599GTB v Ferrari 550M

    After viewing the video, it is clear to me that laying down over 600hp to the rear wheels is quite a challenge. My sense was that on several occasions after getting on the throttle the driver was trying to control the rear end. I am not sure what driving mode he was in but given what was happening to the car he should have kept it in sport or no more than race.

    I think he was in "race" mode (you can see how he switches to "race" at the beginning of the video).

    Thanks a lot! This video is a good reminder to do a test drive of the 599GTB before buying any Porsche
