Video: 599XX blitzes ‘Ring

Waste just under seven minutes in V12 heaven as Ferrari releases footage of 599XX blitzing the Nurburgring.

Another week, another ‘record' Nurburgring lap time...except this one's different. Cos' it's a Ferrari.

The track-honed pumped up Ferrari 599XX - the inspiration for the GTO - has been thrashed around the legendary ‘Ring in a time of just 6m 58.16s, which Fezza reckons is a ‘record' for a production-derived sports car.

Bit tenuous, but epic nevertheless. However, Ferrari has also done something Very Good Indeed by filming the lap via an onboard camera.

This is stuff that makes ears worth having. Turn it up and experience a 6-litre V12 being abused.
