Is there a more beautiful sight than smoke pouring off the rear tires of a Ferrari F40? This 1987 video found by our friends at Axis of Oversteer has Italian Ferrari F1 driver Michele Alboreto caning his company's finest product.

Alboreto calls the F40, "a bit like a German shepherd. You can pet it and it will be nice, but if you are mean to it will bite you." We don't know any German shepherds that shoot flames out of their ass, but the comparison is apt enough.
