Ferrari 550 Maranello gets beat by the American Kangaroo

Minding my own business when this 550 tries cuts into my lane past a solid white line. I quickly accelerate knowing that he wouldn't want to trade paint with a lessor car.

I let him hear the rev limiter. He looks angry, gets behind me and repeats the slow down and accelerate on my ass.

Judging from my rear view mirror his 550 is indeed pretty fast.

I responded on his last acceleration jester by opening up and I started to slowly pull away from him. His car sounds like a jet engine at WOT.

I slowed down and let him have it a few times until he got the message.

When we got to the light I rolled my windows down and ask him what sorta mods does he have in his SS Camaro and rolled my window up while he was trying to respond.

Nice kill!
About time someone runs with a Ferrari, especially a V12.

I believe these are mid 12 second cars. Nice one to add to the list.

I must be the only one who thinks what you did was a little on the jacked up side. If he had room to get in front of you regardless of the solid white line, you should have let him. Plus to be a prick with the Camaro comment was lame.

no offence to anyone or myself, doesnt really matter what you did or who won, hes driving a timeless classic ferrari, and we are driving goats (nothing wrong with that, just cant really compare). his will be worth a mill in 10 years, ours will be worth 50-60 G at best.. big difference. sad but true.

Yeah, but Ferarris are generally associated with very wealthy guys who have no girl-getting skills.

Actually more like 80k and 10k. The GTOs are not going to appreciate, at all.
