What happens when the man the Italians call Signor Stiggini gets behind the wheel of the fastest Ferrari ever, the 599 GTO?

Speed, noise and driftiness, that’s what happens. On the launch of the ultimate 599 last week, our man Bill Thomas was brutally wrestled from his test car by the not-especially-tame racing driver, who proceeded to set off on a series of brutally fast and brutally sideways laps in the 661bhp hypercar.

We managed to grab a few shaky cameraphone clips of what went down. Click the links below to watch four short videos of the Stig doing Bad Things to the 599 GTO… and make sure you pick up the new issue of TopGear magazine on May 19 for the full story.
