Sorry this isn't about the car, but was a lot of this filmed on a D-SLR? If so, what so? Lovely footage, very shallow depth of field - unlikely to be a video camera. Yes, I'm a video anorak....
Yes, I believe his stuff is shot on Canon 60D.

Under or over torqued, more usable or less I don't care really. It's a mad supercar with a twin turbo V12. I want it.

It's the AMG black engine but with pagani spec blowers. Insane. Has the art of discussion been lost on ph?. I don't believe he is showboating, the car appears to struggle for traction out of tight corners, looks fun though.
I don't understand are you saying that if the car had less power it would some how be better? You do realise a lot of enthusiasts find power over steer to be a fun thing?
A more linear power delivery like the v12 in the Zonda would be a better engine. A lot of the most loved super car engines are normally aspirated, Lamborghini v12, macca f1 v12, etc.
And yet another of the most loved has a twin turbo (F40). Different engines for different people/ different times. I prefer the Zonda, but then again there is no point in making "another" Zonda.

If there is a lack of grip then just back off. It's surely better to have the option of being silly if you want - it's unlikely to be an everyday car so you'd want the option of having fun if you decide to.
