Meet The Man Who Raced The Ferrari F40

John Pogson doesn't like traction control, fiddly electronics, or power steering. And that makes him the perfect vessel to keep the spirit of the Ferrari F40 alive.

Pogson, a mechanic-turned-racer, campaigned the F40 as a privateer in the 90s and keeps a fleet of Italian exotica running out of his shop, Italia Autosport, in the UK. He compares his Corvette Z06 to the liability-be-damned beast from Maranello, and when he took delivery of a 600 hp AC Cobra, he promptly ripped out the heater and power steering. We like this guy. You will too.

Great video...makes me regret choosing career based on projected future earnings rather than doing what I love.
