Ferrari has built a monster with its F12 Berlinetta, a V12-powered grand tourer that has the looks of a supermodel and the firepower of a small country. And while it's been on the scene for a minute, Drive's Chris Harris wasn't going to turn down the opportunity to hoon a 740-horsepower prancing horse around the scenic Anglesey Circuit in Wales.

In fact, not only was Ferrari nice enough to loan Harris the F12, but it threw in an extra four sets of tires, just for him to destroy while taking moving pictures. The resulting video is indeed one to watch, not just because of the ample amounts of slow-motion drifting, but because Harris, as always, does a great job of making the viewer feel like they're actually along for the ride. Take a look below for the latest video from Drive.

        If I had Zuckerbergs money I would take Pagani Huyara or Veyron SS. And be even faster and cooler

        Ferrari isn't giving him the car to test. A private owner lent him the car. Same with F40/F50. He owned the 599 and the 512TR.

        Chris sold his 911 GT3 RS and bought a 2007 Ferrari 599 and I suspect his rave review of that car turned Ferrari's heart and now they are ok with lending Chris drive their cars. Interestingly though, Chris has sold his Ferrari recently and has blamed the very high maintenance cost associated with it as the reason. He is not decided what his next ride is going to be yet.

          Harris had no concrete "proof" of anything, but he was very turned off by the fact that Ferrari needs to "tune" all of their press cars before and after each test, each change of location, etc. It clearly looks like the cars are being manipulated to beat competitors in each specific performance parameter while possibly being unable to win on all of them at once. 0-60? Test the others first; the staff needs to prep the Ferrari. Skidpad? Braking? OK, they need 30 minutes with the car before each run. Top speed? The staff need to bring the car into their rolling diagnostic station first. We also need to borrow your measuring equipment, your laptop, your mobile phone, your camera and your passport. A few more of these sneaky little moves, happening at every single press event. Any reasonable journalist would suspect something is going on. Whether he or she speaks up about it is another matter.

          superchan7: harris doesn't care about any performance aspects of the car, all he wants to do is be able to drift the whole way around the track. He probably suspect Ferrari dialed away all the understeer and put some no-grip tires in the rear so he can smoke them the whole way around the track.

          Actually he likes the 458 Italia and even in the comparison to his own beloved GT3 RS 4.0, he did not say which he thought was better; the feud started earlier when he was testing a Ferrari lent to him by Ferrari itself and he made the comment that he felt Ferrari like to tune their cars when they send them in for comparisons and testing by independents like him. Well, understandably Ferrari did not care for the comment and stopped giving him cars for testing. But owners of Ferraris have given him their own cars to test and his feedback on those tests were very favorable to Ferrari....and finally he even bought a Ferrari himself. All was then forgiven and he is back in the good graces of Ferrari.

      Its like art in a car form. So stop comparing to other cars. The F12 is in a class by itself

        No its not. Lexus LFA is still better drivers car. Sorry to burst your bubble, but I can tell you that from VERY reliable sources.

      See, the F12 has more HP than the Aventador now. No ringer needed, so Ferrari is willing to lend one to Chris Harris. Hilarious, but I get it!!

      Probably the only good FR Ferrari. But I just cant shake the feeling ZR1 offers 90% thrills for 3rd of a price. Not to mention upcoming Z07. In any case F12 walks all over that overrated One-77.

        @Semislicks
        That ZR1 is not quite as good as the top handling cars and I'm not just talking numbers. It is usually much cheaper. And the Ferrari is closer to a GT than the ZR1. It's just a damn fast one. And an expensive one. And that One-77, it is a work of art, the craftmanship is incredible. This is what you pay for. I would not buy it but I get it.

        Not sure why you got down-voted for this. I'd love to see that, too!

      I'm surprised when he said that he's never been in a faster street car when MotorTrend took the C7 ZL1 package and base SRT Viper around Laguna Seca quicker.

        Did you just manage to morph a camaro with a corvette? Wtf is a C7 ZL1...you mean a Z51 C7? And he is referring to straight line speed in which the vette does not go faster than the Ferrari.

        It was not a Viper but a Porsche 911, and the C7 recorded lap time was higher than the F12 one. Anyway the Ferrari F12 is a GT and its weight is 550 lbs heavier than the 'vette, so that explains why their lap times were similar.

      no he loves that car, it started when he accused ferrari of having press cars that were tuned better than actual customer cars.

      This car is phenomenal-a great technological achievement. That said: I find the older Ferraris more beautiful and compelling.
