    I love the look of the 599s too. It looks like they still have the overheating problem.

    Well, i can't remember exactly what happens, i think it was something to do with the oil leaking then igniting causing the engines to go up in flames.

    The old Mid-engined Ferraris used to go up in flames due to the closeness of the fuel tank to the engine (in mid-engined models) - dosent explain why the 599 went up though as it is front engined.

    Why, after all these years, have Ferrari still not fixed their reliability problems?

    We want internal combustion, not spontaneous combustion...
