Its drifting is less effective and interesting than its P12 counterpart as it lacks the capability to lose the back end; which the P12 can do. That is countered by the fact that the Tempesta has amazing handling when it gets to high speeds and the high gripping power is very useful in Races.
Although sometimes renowned for spinning out at low speeds like many other speed cars, it is an excellent choice for city races as it can dodge traffic and other obstacles with ease. The Tempesta's light handling and high speed makes it a very decent all-around supercar.
The Rossolini Tempesta looks good and you want one. So don't focus on the blistering power or the punchy, responsive drift. Winning isn't everything. Looking good while you're winning is essential.
