Ha Ha, same here, little schoolboy effect!, our somewhat loaded neighbour has just traded his F430 scud in for a 2008 599 Fiorano, met grey with red leather, with carbon brakes the lot. 620 bhp!!

The V12 559 sounds much more cultured compared to the rabid dog 430, especially at 7am on a sunny sunday morning when he goes for a spin!

He's already had a 458 (too much like a play station game) and a California ( for girls) and didn't rate either of them for the reasons mentioned. The 599 is his seventh Ferrari in 5 years!
