I borrowed Richard’s 2015 Maserati GranTurismo MC and reviewed it. The GT has been around since 2007 and the MC is the ultimate version of the GT. Maserati has done an incredible job producing a very beautiful car that rides smooth and comfortably, yet can play when you want. The exhaust note from the MC is absolutely awesome!
The Ferrari 355 has a reputation for being a high maintenance and expensive car to own. This is usually what people who don’t actually own one say, and more likely someone that has never driven one. Yes, they have a reputation that is well deserved but not only for the maintenance, but also the enjoyment and experience that comes with driving one!
My friend Jeff let me borrow his 1998 Ferrari 355 F1 GTS, note that it’s not the F355 as it has the F1 transmission, not the gated manual. The sound coming from the 3.5 Liter 5 Valve flat plane V8 is simply incredible. It tempts you constantly to just stomp the go pedal harder just to unleash that wail! As Jeremy Clarkson said “I have to have one.”
My buddy David lent me his McLaren 600LT for the day and told me that it would blow my mind. I have yet to really enjoy a McLaren as I’ve found them too numb and lacking a bit of soul. But, holy crap the 600LT is just EPIC. Insanely fast, very responsive, and tons of feedback. It finally felt like I wasn’t driving a computer, but a supercar! This is how supercars that are track focused should feel. What an amazing car.
The Ferrari California can easily be found for under $100K right now, and at that price, it might be the Ferrari you’ve been waiting for. Yes, it’s not the mid engine V8 or even the front engine V12’s, but it’s just as much a Ferrari as those cars, and has the performance numbers to back it up. The grand touring setup provides far better comfort than most other Ferraris, but a touch of practicality yet still going fast as hell with a 0-60 in 3.8 seconds!

While visiting Fred to check out the Ferrari F8, he demanded I try driving his wife’s BMW M850i Carbon edition. The 4.4L Twin Turbo V8 puts out 523HP and well over 550FT-LBS of torque sending this 4400LB beat from 0-60 in under 3.8 seconds! It’s a large car, and quite heavy from all the luxury options, but it’s still fairly planted and feels good on the road. The grand touring aspects of the car really shine on the highway where you are sitting in very comfortable seats with excellent climate controls, modern ergonomics, and a fantastic infotainment system. Overall it’s a fantastic car that’s a joy to drive yet still remains an excellent daily driver.
One of my viewers Fred had me come out to his house in California to join him on a Ferrari F8 Tributo test drive. We headed over to Newport Beach Ferrari, and were given the opportunity to take out the new F8, and put it through the paces. And WOW, it is simply epic. Absolutely stunningly beautiful, incredibly fast and nimble, just a completely amazing car. Fred is going to be getting the F8 Spider as soon as allocations are available. It’s going to be amazing as we bring you along for the journey of buying a brand new Ferrari.
I finally got to try driving a Lamborghini Huracan and I will fully admit, it was a really amazing car. The torque from the V10 was very impressive and it’s build quality is excellent. All of the materials are of high quality and have a good feel to it. Ultimately it’s a high end luxury supercar that’s worthy of the Lamborghini name.
I currently own both a Ferrari 458 and Corvette C7 Stingray. I had previously done a video discussing a Ferrari F430 vs Corvette C7 and lots of Corvette owners were severely butthurt. So I decided I would do another video as now I actually own both a Ferrari and a Corvette.
Many of the Corvette owners claimed that their C7 was just as good as a Ferrari, or that they got just as much attention, or it held it’s value just as much. I discuss these topics and give you not only facts and information about the cars, but also my opinions as an owner and car enthusiast.
I have driven both the Ferrari 458 Italia and C7 Corvette Stingray on the track, and on the street for many miles, and I can tell you with certainty, the Ferrari is just a better car in almost every way.
