He sits in and takes a careful 7 minutes to park it right at the door. He then spends a good 10 minutes in the car savoring the experience!

So I guess there is an alternative for all of us!

Yes black12rr, I know that.
The car was indeed in "RACE" mode, but our little Dippy was in "MAD" mode

WOW, THAT MUST BE SOME EXPERIENCE ! I REMEMBER THAT IN 1990 I WENT TO ITALY TO ATTEND THE "FISITA" (A CONFERENCE ON AUTOMOBILE ENGINEERING) AND THERE WAS THIS "FERRARI MYTHOS" STANDING IN AN EXHIBITION IN THE CONVENTION CENTRE. I JUST SAT IN IT FOR A MINUTE. IT WAS AN EXHILARATING EXPERIENCE FOR ME TOO.

AWAITING THE VIDEO.

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar

Congratulations! Well taking pics of your own Ferrari must be feeling very different, let alone driving it. Now that you have achieved what you always aspired for, time for some spiritual stuff?
