I'm not sure this is "bragging rights" worthy. The Ferrari Mondial is a beautiful and now-classic Ferrari. Fast and agile by late-'80's standards, not current standards. The Ferrari driver likely realized the Volvo driver was a nutcase and let him/her fly by. What an idiot! <p>Nothing like driving 145mph while multi-tasking with one hand at the wheel and the other hand struggling to steady a video camera. Life is worth more than this... that's nature's food chain hard at work. Just don't take the rest of us with you when you splatter yourself all over the pavement.<p>- Tryg<br>

Re: s60 vs. Ferrari (phuz)

That guy is definitely one crazy multitasker <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Rainy- That's exactly why I was asking if it was a Mondial.... Nice fast car in the 80's... Not too quick by current standards!!!

to be honest, i don't mind the race on a public road. <p>but from this video, it kind of feels like the S60 passes that ferrari a little too quickly and all of a sudden somewhere in the middle of the race, when until just a moment ago he could only barely keep the distance that the ferrari had put on him in the beginning. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/sly.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>this makes me think that the ferrari was not giving it all he's got at high speed. it's more like he goes at it in the beginning and then slows down, just before the the S60 passes him, maybe thinking that he has proven his point, or maybe because he doesn't want to exceed a certain speed. <p>i would hardly call this a kill. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthdown.gif" BORDER="0">
