    70th Anniversary weekend

    I have been very busy with work travel etc recently so have not had a chance to post this before. I was fortunate enough to have two of my cars (F40 & F50) selected for the Concorso D'Eleganza that took place in Maranello and Modena as part of the 70th Anniversary long weekend on 8/9/10 September. And what a weekend it was Smiley. Ferrari put on a show that only they are capable of. The details are all over the web so I will not dwell on it here.The highlight for me was naturally driving the cars ( I drove the F50 and a friend the F40) from Maranello to Modena and then back to Maranello in a convoy of all those involved in the Concorso D'Eleganza. On the way back I got to take the cars through the factory and then stop for a photo at the gates (taken by the Police who told us we could not stop there SmileySmiley). This is as close to Nirvana as one can get for a Ferrarista. Spine tingling stuff.And just when you thought it could not get better we drove the cars on to Fiorano itself where they parked overnight for the judging the following day. Unforgettable

    CR (the guy who pays for Rennteam...) was there as well with his 488 Spider, he sent me photos.

    If he knew, I'm pretty sure he would have wanted to meet with you. blush

    Black 488 Spider with German license plates...maybe you remember (I assume there were more black Spiders there but...).

    Sorry not to have met him. Did he come in the convoy from Germany? The newer cars such as the 488 did not make it to the centre of the events.

    Brilliant pictures, thanks for sharing. Both look immaculate! kiss

    I don't really know. He just sent me photos of this event and he loved it. Your cars are amazing, I wish I was there as well to be able to admire them. Enjoy, life is good. Smiley Smiley

    To me the F40 is the most beautiful car design ever made.

    F40 never gets old. F50 is a but too Cruisin' USA for me, but cool nonetheless.

    I heard someone paid $1M for a 488 Spider in 70th Ann livery at a Sotheby auction that weekend. heart A cool $700K premium for a paint job...

    Yes...the "coolest" car on the planet...with the Carrera GT together maybe.

    Re: 70th Anniversary weekend

    I was also there these days (in Modena and Maranello). I met the guy in the other F50 from England who is also a member of FerrariChat and has his own Instagram account. I wished I had known that the brown tanned driver in the F50 was you crayphile. Smiley
