Hell, I don’t remember….is this the 5th, 6th, or 7th time I’ve watched this? Trying to put into words what this video does to me is beyond the scope of my vocabulary so why bother trying. What does it matter anyway. This is pure porn.

Whenever someone asks me why I love cars I tell them, just watch this!

Awesome!

This is what money is for. I’m back for the third or fourth time, max volume. My new happy place.

Wow. I was looking for the longer video, which I have probably watched 30 times, when I discovered this. I somehow missed it before – I’m guessing I saw it and thought it was the other video. What a wonderful surprise!

Kudos to Petrolicious for the restraint – no voiceover and no music, other than the glorious Ferrari V12. And to the owner who let Derek drove the valuable car the way it was meant to be driven…and to share it with us.

Thanks for the wonderful video!

Absolutely stunning! Amazing video… Pure orgasm!
But this GTO serie 2, (or model 64) number 5571GT belong to Bruce MC Caw so I don’t understand why Petrolicious says it belongs to Derek Hill since ever! May someone give me some information about it?
thanks.

Sorry, my bad. Petrolicious said Derek is the driver, not the owner 🙂
Thanks to the owner to allowed him to drive it anyway. This video is pure art.

Watching Derek stab at the steering at 5:58 is very exciting indeed. The thought of this priceless car hurtling through this course is equally a thrill!

What a car and what a view from this panoramic windscreen! Imagine a stint at le Mans in this!! Thanks Derek and thanks Petrolicious for this moment

And of course it was edited to 7 minutes and 10 seconds… 710, the upside down oil cap.

I can only imagine how awesome that sounded as we flew past the marshals.

3:20, slowing down just on the brake it’s not cool dude!

He’s coming to a stop, its pointless to gear down when coming to a known stop unless you just want to add wear and tear to the trans. Even when double clutching. I prefer to leave the car in gear when coming to a known stopping point as oppose to declutching and letting the engine idle, but sometimes I will do it that way. Not a huge deal.

Love it. I guess this is shot with a camera a bit more sophisticated than a Go-Pro?

was the road closed for him? if not l wish the driver wouldn’t cross the yellow lines into many blind corners, I ride my motorcycle on roads like that and would not like to meet him…otherwise great video

The road was closed – they have flaggers visible in the video.

This new series is pure genius! I vote for David Scholz’s 240 Z as the next one!

Not only the greatest video ever shot, the greatest video which will EVER be shot!

Mille grazie!

So nice. What a great feeling for Derek Hill on many levels.

I like how the wiper lifts/raises at speed.

Reminds me of a story my father told of racing a ’69 AMX at Riverside back in the day, and how there was fluid coming over the windshield at the end of the straight before the dog-leg. Turns out it was windshield washer fluid getting sucked out at speed. (The car was driven to the track.)

Thanks for sharing.

Words cannot describe how sublime this is. Thank you, Petrolicious…

lovely car and sound. is it wealth that buys an unmolested, seven-minute solo chase scene on a public road?
