Ever seen a grown man lose his marbles with excitement? To be transformed into a child at the step of a pedal and scream out loud from sheer happiness? Well Chris Harris does just that when taking two of Ferrari‘s all-time best on a track day at the famous Angelsey circuit.
The production of the F40 preceded the F50 by a full 2 decades, however as you can see in the video above, it completely steals Chris’ heart.

Buckle up and enjoy the ride!
