Ferrari F70 takes test lapsWed, 06 Feb 2013 00:00:00 -0800
It's a strange world we live in when, even in my short-to-medium lifespan, we've gone from the 1980 Ferrari 308 GTSi making either 205 or 214 hp—depending on who you're asking—to the Ferrari F70, which is rumored to make 950 hp with its V12 and KERS system. I would put an Excel graph here, but just imagine a line going up at a 45-degree angle to infinity.
With all of that in mind, here's about five minutes of the camouflaged supercar flying around the test track with fantastic audio of the Italian stallion in action. From YouTube user Marchettino—whose personal channel is one of the best the Web has to offer—we get a few hard launches, a good bit of downshifting and even a bit of burble at idle. As a bonus, an Enzo takes a few passes, giving viewers a comparison of sonorous engine sounds.
We watched all 5 minutes of it, twice.
