The fluff/popcorn factor would likely plummet along with the Audience in my opinion if the video Ash was as serious as you'd wish it was.

I don't want serious at all!

I want these guys telling tall tales about car hijinx over a Hennessey AFTER the day is done but whilst the adrenalin is still there - any bloke who's been on an AE'esque car run knows that feeling.

Minimise the in-car talk to snippets of really cool moments rather than trying to give a review whilst driving, have a display of adventure, some aural ecstasy, car porn, intricate details, offensive jokes, odd tidbits that you didn't know, and some showboating stuff.

That's my ultimate car teevee show. I haven't really watched Top Gear for probably 3-5 years - maybe that still does it, dunno.

I see, I'd watch that.  :thumbsup:

wow, that was fantastic,

its so great to see these things actually driven as they're meant to be :D

also the first time i've actually been impressed a little by the F50.  beautiful car, but always seemed to play second fiddle to an F40.

F40 still FTW in my mind, but i think the F50 has taken a slight step up in my mind.  but probably still as forgettable as the Enzo IMO.

Cashed in on the first $50k offer.

...ROFLMAO!!!!

Actually,  interestingly enough, I've seen a couple of 308 results lately that indicated that the market has increased. ... like all the other older Ferraris.

A must see video F40 v F50

Chris gets very excited. His driving impressions hit the nail on the head and confirm what I've always thought.

What sorts of idiots would sell cars like this?

Well that was certainly interesting :)

F50 sounded unreal.

I don't think either car had a standard exhaust.

I can't really...you know that.

Suffice to say, models that sold 2 years ago for 50k and 80k respectively have had recent sales at 75 and 110k.

I suspect it won't last. I think they've being dragged up by all the other cars.

I mean...Dino 250k+, glass 308GTB 80k. That's a very big difference...IMO too big.

Remember once upon a time Dino's were considered not real Ferrari's and weren't valued like today.
