As I watch the 550 being strapped down onto WRC's terrific new rolling road facility at Silverstone it occurs to me that this could all end in tears. Ferrari's claim of 485bhp at 7000rpm suddenly sounds an awful lot. Perhaps a few will have escaped since the 550 first left the showroom almost seven years ago. Perhaps they were never all there in the first place. Then again, our car has always felt pretty fit, so it would be a surprise if it didn't post a reasonably big number.
