    I did this test a few times when it cropped up on the TeamGTM forum and i think i managed 80%.

    One question it asked me was "Which car is not mid-engined". It showed me an F430, Gallardo, V8 Vantage and a Porsche GT3...
    It would only let me click on one of them...

    85%. However I should've done better. "Where is Ferrari's headquarters?" I answered "Maranello" and they said I was wrong. If that's the case where the hell is that factory that I've been to a dozen times?

    As I recall, Modena is the major city and Maranello is a small suburb in which Ferrari is located.

    Forget that, Maranello is 18 km away from Modena, so it is not Modena at all.

    I scored 70% both times. There was one question where I could've sworn the picture was of an Audi R8, but I guess i haven't seen enough R8's .

    read the question again ????

    The Maranello HQ and factory and Fiorano test track and the Modena HQ and factory are seperate sites ! Cars and F1 are also two subdivisions, what was the precise question ?

    80% - I'm not so good on the Spec questions. (IE which is the most expensive car)

    Without looking at the cars listed, I would have guessed it was a R8 headlight due to what appear to be led lights under the headlight. But the R8 isnt listed so I dont know.
