Commend that driver's skills, but he would probably enjoy more doing that out in race track situation instead of streets. Fail to see the point of the exercise IMHO.

Hi guys,
Ok the owner's of this 599 is crazy to drive in this mode in open streets ....
But see this video my attention was to the mitical manual gearbox, never one time he ended with succesful the shift from 3rd to 2nd!!!! 2nd not enter and he go to neutral and after insert 1st!!!
Now the value of this car is about 600000 eur?
I spent 600000 eur for one car where i cant insert the 2nd???!!
But we are crazy??!!
You stay sure that also other manual 599 are like that ....

As Fabio say's he seems to struggle with the gears and seems to forget to shift a few times bouncing of the limiter for a long time! Still at least his tyres would be warm after that!
