Chris Harris beats the living hell out of a Ferrari he isn’t supposed to be allowed to drive…. LOL

Many of you probably know about how Chris Harris exposed Ferrari’s rigging of press cars during magazine tests. Ferrari immediately blacklisted him after his article aired on Jalopnik (We did a reaction piece to it as well), which meant he would never be allowed to drive Ferrari press cars again, or purchase a brand new Ferrari for that matter too. Chris has had other ways of still getting Ferraris to road test, but this time he has actually landed himself one of Ferrari’s own press cars via some under-the-table means. The hilariousness of this video for me lies in how he proceeds to absolutely ring the car’s neck, beating the crap out of it on a racetrack like it is a Nissan drift car, or something. It would’ve been hilarious to see the angry looks of the Ferrari executives, in their well tailored suits, upon seeing this video.

I personally love Ferrari for who they are, arrogance included, but it is common sense that when you act the way Ferrari does towards people, they will take any chance they get to make a fool out of you. Needless to say, I will be laughing about this for the rest of the day. Another big win by the Drive Network and Chris Harris. Enjoy

    I’m not usually a Chris Harris fan especially after he butchered the MK1 MX5 but this puts the Ferrari drifting video that’s been doing the Internet rounds recently neatly into context.

    1. Chris is probably my favorite journalist, but having said that I did ardently disagree with what he said about the Miata not being a true sports car. That said, though, as an owner of a Mk1 MX5, I can agree that the car needs some modifications before the handling is properly tight. The stock suspension is way too soft if you’re used to driving other sports cars, but to someone used to a minivan a stock Miata feels incredibly sporty. It’s all a matter of perspective really. I love my MX5, though, and it is definitely a proper roadster…… and by most definitions, a sports car.
