Frank is obviously barking mad, but at least he's driving it and not letting it sit in a garage.

best line: "the best reason fro owning a car like this is that there will always be a smile on your face"

i have seen this video numerous times and honestly i don't think that is a respect to the car, maserati, or anyone who put efforts in designing and making the car.

yes, he got the money, but slipping and sliding in snow with improper tires is not driving.

I saw that very car in my local dealership the other day when I picked up my new 4200. Its up for sale but oddly Maserati wont let their dealers advertise MC12's for sale - it has to be word of mouth!
As for driving it in the snow - hey, they are to be enjoyed.

Makes you sick to the stomach to see this guy abuse the car. I'm sure there's 50 others who would have "enjoyed" the car but didn't have a chance to buy one.

c'mon guys....

The man obviously has the money to afford the car and the money to afford to fix and maintain it if he screws it up.

Bags o money aside he's no different from any of us. He bought the car based on the SOUND of the engine. The purpose of a car is to get you from point A to point B. There are variations in speed, style and passion but he's using the car as intended.

You can't say he disrespects the car - he's got an FIA competition license. He's not some jackass that's going to get toasted, drive beyond his capabilities, get airborne and wrap it around a telephone pole on Pacific Coast Highway some morning - now that's what I call disrespect.

The one thing that surprises me is to hear it's up for sale. I wonder what he found that's better?

explain to me if the MC12 was ever designed or intended to be driven in snow. :rolleyes:
how much speed was he getting his MC12 in that icy track?
may be you like his style of driving?

he got an FIA license so what?
he's just as a jackass with a FIA license and still wiping out the MC12 in a very slow speed, very little style, and may be a little passion.

If I could afford it, that's exactly how I'd drive my Maserati.
