Luca di Montezemolo puts the new Stratos through its paces – Click above to watch video after the jump

Don't let anyone tell you that Ferrari President Luca di Montezemolo can't drive. The boss of one of the world's most exclusive supercar brands recently took the time to hot-shoe the resurrected Stratos around the Fiorano race track in Italy. While watching a brand executive put a car through its paces is rare enough, it's even more surprising to hear di Montezemolo heap praise on a vehicle without a Prancing Horse on the hood, even if there's a 4.3-liter Ferrari V8 at the heart of the new car.

Throw in the fact that the new interpretation of one of Italy's most iconic rally heathens looks and sounds the part, and you've got all the makings of juicy video clip.

Have we mentioned just how badly we want one of these? Hit the jump to watch the video for yourself.
