Apparently, people don’t know how to drive a Ferrari properly.
Well, that’s what one guy on TikTok thinks anyway.
So, to put people right, he’s created a very “helpful” video showing how it’s done.
The POV video, posted by econsidehustlecars, was filmed inside a Ferrari 812 Superfast.
In case you’re not up-to-speed with your Ferrari models, the 812 Superfast is a front mid-engine, rear-wheel drive grand tourer.
Under the hood it’s got a 6.5-liter V12 that generates 789 horsepower and 530 lb-ft of torque.
According to Ferrari in 2018, the 812 Superfast’s engine was, at the time, the most powerful naturally-aspirated production car ever made.
Anyway, that’s enough about the car – back to how to “drive it properly”.
Kevin Kunze, the guy who shot the video, starts by saying that he puts his foot on the brake and presses the red engine start button on the steering wheel.
The Ferrari 812 Superfast the springs to life, letting out a mighty roar.
He can then be seen “clearing” a little button on the dash.
At this point, it would’ve been useful if Kunze actually explained what he was clearing, as it’s not entirely clear (pardon the pun).
He does, however, explain that the engine management light always stays on for around 15 seconds.
Pointing at a dial at the bottom of the steering wheel, Kunze says “I always keep mine in race”.
Next he presses the suspension button on the opposite side of the steering wheel, which he says he always turns on as “that way it’s not as bumpy”.
Reaching near the interior light, Kunze then presses the ‘auto start/stop’ button to deactivate it.
With the Ferrari in auto mode, Kunze presses the ‘auto’ button beside his right leg, which actually puts the car into manual.
Tapping the right paddleshift, he says it’s now in gear and you’re good to go.
At the risk of sounding salty, it’s not the most informative video, nor is it necessarily the right way to drive a Ferrari.
Kunze is merely showing how he prefers to drive the supercar, while also flexing incredibly hard.
Several TikTok users were quick to show sarcasm, too.
“I just got mine a few days ago and was struggling figurimng out how to get it going – thank you for this,” one user wrote.
“Perfect, now all I need to do is get a Ferrari,” another said.
“Thanks for the clarification, I wasn’t gonna buy one but now I can,” one wrote.
In all honesty, it was never going to go down well when you start a video with, “It’s come to my attention that not everyone knows what it’s like to drive a Ferrari or how to do it.”
