The video was awesome containing the Zr1 and 458 Italia going at it on the back roads of Italy. The Zr1 is truly a super car.

Would have liked to see the ZR1 & the 458 go head to head on a long straight, rather than on the tight twisties. But really cool nonetheless.

Thanks for posting.

After watching the video, I soooooooo want to take my red Vette over to Germany. She has 905 HP and I think I could get in excess of 200 mph. Now that goal is on my bucket list

How funny, one of my dreams I'm working on (depending on my 401K in say 8 years) is to buy a 2nd house in Italy and bring along a lightly used ZR1 to explore Europe with. Wife and I spent some time there last year and loved it...

I've driven a 458 on the roads around Maranello. Truly epic stuff.

We're going to Italy and France again in May, but I don't think I'll make it to Maranello this time since the wife will be with me.

I always felt the Corvette was the equal amongst the supercar elite its not a muscle car anymore it transcends striaght line speed and brute force power its a well balanced high tech lightweight supercar. The best thing is the Corvette didn't look out of place with the Ferrari. Proud to be a Corvette owner

Yeah, yeah, whatever. The real question is how do teenagers feel about the video
