Unabashed Gearhead Gnarlyness


Ah, the scream of a Ferrari motor at full boogie

In this case a twin-turbo V8 from a F40LM expertly pedaled by none other than French F1 hotshoe Jacques Lafitte.  How about that recalcitrant shifter trying to move gears around in a cold box?  At about the 60 second mark you can hear Lafitte really get into the turbos, and I just can’t get enough of the exhaust spitting, burping and rip snorting as he heels and toes down the gearbox around the 90 second mark.

Sacrebleu!  Forza Italia!  It’s like, visceral, dude.
