    Unhappy WRX vs Ferrari.. F40.

    I was just cruising in my WRX today..... and saw this:

    (Click to enlarge)





    This is after I just flew past it to try to provoke the driver to floor it. I wanted to hear it scream.


    The results of my attempt ]


    Shot from the side


    This is a Ferrari F40 in the middle of traffic. Not one head didn't turn.


    The Ferrari F40, needless to say, raped me. I passed him to try to get him to open it up, and he did. He flew past like I was moving backwards

    And to this all off, when I was coming home I saw a Ferrari 550 Maranello AND a BMW Z8! I didn't have time to snap pictures of them because they were going the opposite way too fast .

    Another good summer day, though.

    I used to drive an old Jetta and I pulled up next to a ferrari (don't remember which one). I revved my 86 hp engine at him just for kicks with my window rolled down. He revved at me back. My left ear was deaf for about 5 minutes


    I also saw a guy in a Lambo Murcielago on the freeway while in my friend's accord. He looked like one of those players in a rock band...probably is...

    The WRX is fast, but an F40 would hold us down and ass rape us like in that Monica Bellucci movie.

    The only chance a WRX has against an F40 is if there is 2" of snow on the ground. In that instance the F40 driver outta be dragged from the car and beaten with a wet rabbit. Good to see folks out drivin the F40's, Ferrari feared that people were going to buy em, and never drive them. Damn if I could buy one and just park it, I'd be climbing the walls to get out and drive the wheels off it.

    I've been seeing some vid of F40's racing (well, playing around with) other cars (audi a4 etc)

    I think the owners really do love racing that thing in the streets, which is cool.

    I don't understand those people who spend so much money on a super exotic go-fast cars and have a feather foot.

    Nice pictures.
