So I spent some time in Italy in May and like I mentioned previously I stopped by Fabio Fiammenghi's workshop and met up with him in person. First of all, to say that he's a class act as a person is a complete understatement. He was extremely generous in his time showing me around and even bought me dinner! He showed me around town and luckily for us the Mille Miglia and the Ferrari Tribute to Mille Miglia were in in town so we saw our fair share of new and old exotics.
Regarding his products, he showed me the complete set up he has for headers, cats, mid pipes, mufflers, etc. for the 550/575 and the 599. Those who have bought them know they look like pieces of art. The craftsmanship was incredible and after spending a few hours chatting with Fabio, it's crystal clear that his engineering skills are extraordinary and that he has a true passion and knowledge for what he does.
I wasn't able to record his 575 it on the go but here is a short video I took of the car while he revved it. First with the muffler valves closed and then opened. I know this is a 599 thread but if his 6-1 mufflers make a 550/575 so amazing, I can only imagine what his 6-1 headers do to a 599! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z-Z3mQdFjUo
