So, if you were watching Chris Harris give the Ferrari 599 GTO what for and thinking, "Yeah, but can you can only really use a car like that on a track," sit back and prepare to be vindicated. The gurus at EVO have been so kind as to release a three-part video series showing exactly what can be accomplished if the car is unleashed on the Ferrari Fiorano test track. And let's just say you don't hear him complain about the air-conditioning this time around.
The first segment sees Harris wedged in the cockpit with the insanely fast Raffael De Simone at the wheel – the same guy who managed to fling the car around the Nürburgring in 6:58.1. If you like seeing the typically even-keeled Harris get surprised by the wicked carbon ceramic brakes on the 599 GTO, you can check it out on the EVO site.
But we're more interested in watching Harris himself shuffle the Prancing Horse. While there's a profusion of descriptors like "quick" "awesome" and "outrageous" thrown about during the brief segments, it's interesting to see the car's driver aids come into play – and just how far they'll let the car get out of line before reigning you in. Hit the jump to find out.
