Default Building a Ferrari 599

I know I'm a homo for making non-contributive posts in the BS section but this program is mental. A must see for any auto enthusiast. I'm fairly sure they're incorrect about some of their facts, namely the vehicle weight, and it's dumbed down a bit, but it's still sickk (two k's for a double dose of super sickness).

One of the Discovery channels ran a program showing the Ferrari factory and how they build a 599. BTW they also had others; one showing how BMW builds (I think it was the M4?) and the Corvette factory.

Pretty cool stuff.

They also showed the factory where the Apaches are made, that was pretty cool as well.

U guys SUK...
After watching 5min of that I'm hooked, but I refuse to watch it on anything other than my 61" HDTV...
That said, anyone know a place that has this dvd in stock??? Already tried renting from Blockbuster and also searched at Circuit City, Bestbuy, Walmart, & Target...
I want it asap, but can only find them online...

although their facts about ferrari being the winniest (is that a word?) in the history of F1 can't be right. maybe in the schui era, but they used to suck!

I didn't watch the whole thing, too long for right now. Thanks for the link though. I prefer the 612 over the 599. Those weird C pillars just don't do it for me.

The video said the 599 weighs a ton and a quarter. And they said the 500# engine comprised 1/5th of the total vehicle weight. My calculator tells me that = 2500# in both cases.

All other sources (that I can find) indicate anywhere from 3722 to 3750# for curb weight.

I'm frequently wrong, and so is the internetz, so don't bank on any of this...
