The F50 is an incredible machine. Â "Turns like an SUV" is the most laughable thing I have read in a long time. Â I don't even know how to respond to that. how did you like Cavallino??? Â It's a great event. Â The F40 guy had trouble parking, huh? Â what a wimp Â
. Â Just kidding, but it's no different from any other car. Â Of course, in a Countach or Diablo, there may as well be no rear window at all.
First off, to address the comment about the F40 and F50 handling, it is important to remember that power steering is seen by many to be a necessity, not a luxury. Â If I recall correctly, both of these finely-tuned machines use unassisted rack and pinion steering, which at least in my book, isn't the easiest or most pleasant when you need to corner or park at low speeds. Â I believe - and again, excuse me if I'm mistaken since this is all off the top of my head - that most of the 8-cylinder models have power-assisted steering. Â I don't know how much time you've spent in Palm Beach, but as I'm sure Jon can attest to, most of the folks who are driving these cars aren't exactly in their prime
On another note, since I have yet to attempt to purchase an Enzo, I have no idea how they prioritize customers. Â But from some colleagues who do own Ferraris and have established relationships, I did hear that part of the criteria was that you had to have purchased at least two new Ferraris in the past few years. Â One of them also commented that having purchased one of the race cars such as a 333SP or something along those lines would help. Â A friend of mine who has only purchased a 360C (which he races) has had some trouble getting one and is having to pay twice the MSRP just to get one. Â The gray market for cars like this is quite large, and it leads me to believe that there are some dealers either here or in Europe who are less picky. In any case, I digress. Â Very right about keeping speeds like that on the track. Also, thanks for reminding me of the name of the show as I was going to try to attend this coming January but couldn't for the life of me figure out what it was called. Hopefully by Cavallino 29, I'll be able to enter a car or two of my own
