    Some People put their Ferraris in their living rooms

    On HDNET this weekend on the progam called "Across America", in High Definition, pretty cool program on a Ferrari club using Lime Rock. Everything was great except when they mentioned some Ferrari owners build their living rooms around their car!

    hahahaha

    Re: Some People put their Ferraris in their living rooms

    Yeah there is a guy in my neighborhood whose garage is amazing, teracota tiles, marble, huge windows and 3 Ferraris and 1 Porsche inside.

    Re: Some People put their Ferraris in their living rooms

    over here in beirut ,we had a zillionaire who had every supercar in the world in his garage (350 cars) ,he made in the living room of his huge villa ,a system to drive his car inside the living room every night ,with a special ventilation system going out from the floor that goes on the exhaust in case he feels like starting the engine to listen or make listen to the engine sound while resting on the sofa..

    Re: Some People put their Ferraris in their living rooms

    My friend's garage(?) living room(?) somewhere in Japan. The lady in ice blue pants is my wife. Circle is a turn table................

    Re: Some People put their Ferraris in their living rooms

    Great garage.

    What kind of car is that blue one... is that a Modena with a different front?

    Re: Some People put their Ferraris in their living rooms

    Yes. Modena with a one-off front. Bonnet is also different.

    Re: Some People put their Ferraris in their living rooms

    Hmm, quite colourful, that interior decoration...

    Interesting that the Gallardo is the only one of the three cars without aftermarket mods to the exterior...

    The 360's front looks like derived from a NSX.

    Perhaps that is because there ain't that many aftermarket parts available at the moment?

    BTW, thougt the same about the NSX-Modena.

    True!

    By the way, are there any more cars in that "living room", Iyori?

    Re: Some People put their Ferraris in their living rooms

    The guy drives a E55 and his wife a Z4 3.0

    and what about the 3 cars in the picture? he dont drive them??????

    Re: Some People put their Ferraris in their living rooms

    He drives them, but may be once every two weeks or something. If I had lived near him, I would have driven the cars for him.......He has a F430 on order, one of the first cars to arrive in Japan..........

    Let me guess the colour, lime-green?

    Re: Some People put their Ferraris in their living rooms

    I think he is ordering one in red. I recommended Rosso Barchetta 312, the old F1 colour. As for me, I am ordering one in Black with light blue interior with white stitches. Navy blue carpet.

    Re: Some People put their Ferraris in their living rooms

    It is not as horrible as it sounds right?

    Re: Some People put their Ferraris in their living rooms

    you are taking a biiig risk......

    Re: Some People put their Ferraris in their living rooms

    What is the fun of owning such beautiful beasts and not driving them? This is like being married to the most beautiful woman in the world and not having sex with her.

    The only fun of owning such cars is DRIVING them. When I bought my first fast car, I was spending hours in it, under it and next to it in my garage just to look at the line flow, engine, suspension, etc. I was even sitting in it for an hour or two listening to music and enjoying the interior.
    But soon I realized that the only real fun is DRIVING such cars. Not looking at them, not cleaning them, not polishing them but DRIVING them. I guess this is why they have wheels, right?

    Re: Some People put their Ferraris in their living rooms

    dhayak,
    I am a risk taker!

    RC,
    He drives it. He is a surgeon who owns his own little hospital and is always on call. He does drive it whenever he can but that is only once every two weeks. He keeps the car in his country home which makes it more difficult for him to drive them frequently. Anyhow, he is enjoying the car in his own way. But let me tell you RC, if one wants to just polish them, I think that is perfectly fine. Some guys are impotent, right? There is always Viagra.

    Re: Some People put their Ferraris in their living rooms

    Someday that will be my living room...

    ...someday.

    Well, I shouldn't complaint then. I sell Viagra.
    Legally of course.

    I'll have to convince my wife to become a surgeon instead of the family doctor she is now and move to Japan. Surgeon's paradise I guess?

    But I want to be honest: I always wished to have the money of Bill Gates but not because of power or anything special I really would need but because of making it possible to fullfill my car dreams. I admire the sultan of Brunei who is rumored to owns hundreds and thousands of fine cars.
    If someone ever wants to get rid of his car collection (because of divorce, deadly illness or whatever... ), I'm willing to take them and take good care of them.
    One thing is for sure: I would love to have a collection of Lambos, Porsches, Ferraris, etc. but newer models only. Older cars are nice but correct maintenance is crucial to driving safety and I wouldn't dare to drive them very very fast.

    Dream on, RC...

    Doesn't Bill Gates have one unfullfilled car dream? Doesn't he have a 959 or something similar sitting in a Custom's wharehouse because he cannot get it federalized without crashing one and the government will not accept a computer simulation of the car crash?

    Re: Some People put their Ferraris in their living rooms

    RC,
    He needs to cut up all his patients to pay the loans for his cars! Because he is a surgeon, the banks lend him money for those cars in full amount which I think is unbelievable, but anyways, he spends almost all of his money on cars and modification of them.

    Talking about the Sultan, I do not need that much but I would like an F40, an Enzo, Continental GT, DB9, Vanquish,
    Carrera GT, 1989 911 Carrera, RR Phantom, S63 AMG, Audi A8, new M5, 997TT, 288GTO, 250GTO..........

    But more than just cars, I would like my own circuit........It is not even a dream because it is so unreal but anyways..........

    iyori ,i am sure you can start with the1989 911 Carrera,shouldnt be more than a few thousands dollars...make your dream come true!

    btw ,rc ,have you seen the garage of udai hussein(son of saddam hussein) ,before and after he burned it?he had every single supercar you could ever imagine ,he burned them before he left his palace,he didnt wanted anybody to enjoy them after him . among them was a bmw z8 that belonged to me ,when i sent it back to the dealer after a year of ownership,he told me that it was sold to oudai hussein... ,i saw it on cnn burning in the garage...this is a pic of the late car..

    Re: Some People put their Ferraris in their living rooms

    dhayek,
    I need to own all of them (or even more) for my dream to come true, you know? Dream should be left dream, sometimes, I guess...............

    Are you sure this 959 is still sitting there?

    I remember that I visited Werk 1 in Zuffenhausen once and there was an almost totalled 959 who has been brought there for a re-build. Now guess who was the owner...
