      They were awesome to hear in person!

      Too bad the man behind bringing the 333SP to US race tracks passed away last month. RIP Gianpiero Moretti (founder of MOMO).

      The sound of these things was like God himself having sex.

      I know many people remember seeing the 333SP race but how many of you remember the FUDD?



      I have some photos of this car I took at Watkins Glen a few years ago. I think it sounded a bit more fearsome than the regular 333SP.

      Interesting perspective looking at those acceleration figures....granted testing a racecar probably more as a novelty than typical car test, those figures are quite achievable in today's supercar...or even less than supercar looking at the 3.6 sec 0-60(TT-RS anyone?), on street tire no less...

      No supercar today can achieve those figures for 24 solid hours of racing. The 333SP is a purpose built race car built to withstand all the punishment that racing puts on to a vehicle.
