good point but it could e a while before some one tests 599 with the hgte package on a track and for now i cant wait untill the 599 hgte gets tested on a track other than the fiorano and in response to the first person who responded to my coment i will have to tell you that i am not stupid for takeing the 599 over the sl black i mean theirs so much more to the 599 than there is to the sl black i mean the 599 is the best front engine ferrari ever and the 599 has some much of a sense of passion and soul the sl black is just souless car thats well engineered but just seems like the most pointless car a rich person would buy a sl black but a real car enthusiast would take a 599.

Wouldn't it be better to compare the SL65 Black to the 599 HGTE once the HGTE has more laptimes at different tracks?

I wouldnt say manhandles, its by a couple of tenths,and the SL BS has ben tested in the 1/4 at 11.3, ill post it later, and i dont believe the TGT laptime, and youd have to be stupid to take the 599 over the Black.

Noticebly faster?????????? the 599 manhandles the sl black on 3 of those tracks exept the nurburgring because the 599 s lap was done by sport auto and the sl black s lap is a manufactor claim and further more the sl black cant even keep up with the 599 in the 1/4mile so the sl black only gets all those points for being faster than the 599 by 11 secs???? and a 30sec lap time difference on the nurburgring is like a 5 sec lap time difference on a normal track like bedford autodrome.
