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.
This is the 3rd McLaren I’ve driven, and I really want to like it. In many ways I do, it’s everything you’d expect from a modern supercar. Fast as hell. Precise handling. Amazing braking ability, shifts are lightning fast. But it just has no soul!
The turbo’s mute the engine’s sound dramatically and although you can hear the turbos whistle, the engine’s sound is kind of odd. No matter how hard manufacturers try, there is still some turbo lag, and it causes the low end torque to be very disappointing. However the upper end pulls like crazy.
I know people are going to hate on me for saying this, but I just don’t like the McLarens. I wish they had a non-turbo car that was available, EVEN if it was slower and had far less horsepower.
But, that being said, it really is still an amazing car in just about every way. But I’m not sure I’d be willing to spend $350k on it.
One of my viewers brought his Dodge Demon over and had Meg and I try driving it. Todd is a hero and let us not only beat on it pretty hard, but he had me do some launches with launch control. The best part is he wanted Meg to do a burnout! Meg did her first burnout ever! It was pretty good for a first try and got some smoke.
The 808HP Dodge Demon is simply crazy fast. From pulling a wheelie to running the quarter mile in under 10 seconds from a factory car! The drag slicks come from the factory with little Dodge Demon logos on them. The marketing efforts by Mopar were simply brilliant as they sold all 3000 of the Demons very quickly. Now they are currently selling in the 6-figure range.
Todd is selling his other Dodge Demon with factory delivery miles on it, only 7.3 miles! If you’d like to buy his Demon, send me an email: email@example.com
