    geertf60's Maranello shots

    geertf60 trip to Maranello last week


    Thank you geertf60 for sharing these awesome pictures with us. I'm sure you had a great time in Maranello .

    last week - 3 august - I was on a visit in Maranello. Like normally I went directly to the Via Musso, because there is the entrance where the cars and the prototypes leave the factory. But I found this on the gate :



    (Because of holidays of the porters, please take the new entrance.

    After a little bit of searching to see something special, I found a parking at the side of the factory. Some people before me made some holes in the protection of the fence where you could see a bit more !!! Right in front of me was the new F600 and you could compare it with the old F575 and F612 !!!!!!!!
    After a while they fired up the car. Strange engine noice - like an Enzo. Could be because there were no silencers on the exhausts. But the engine stopped and they had to call some mecanics to pull the car back to his place.
    To me it's a strange car because it's a bit shorter than a F612 and also the roof line is very strange. A bit like a 250GTO or a 250SWB. You could also see on the pics that the back end is not finished. I think it will be a lot shorter and with lights like the Enzo and the F430. After a few minutes there was a guy who asked me not to take foto's or filming. For pics and filming, I had to go to the new entrance. But there, I saw 2 other mules, more like a F612 but full with computers. The driver was not see pleased to see me with my camera.















    They were also testing a Maserati Qauttroporte with a rollbars in it ????????????




    And Finally after I spoke with a guy from the F1 department, there was a F1 test on Fiorano. It was not Michael, Rubbens, Gene, Badoer or Massa. No, it was Valentino Rossi. His helmet was completly red and I saw him spinning 3 times. But what a noice. They told me also that the maybe would test the new V8 engine with Gene, but that was not the case.



    So maybe till next year, than I take a van to take this with me.



    Thank you geertf60 .

    Re: geertf60's Maranello shots

    I likey!!! the F600 (if that's what it is called) does have an ODD roof line. It reminds me of a Dodge Viper coupe in a way.... (it slopes very deeply). And then there is the SuperAmerica...with those HUUUUUGGGEEEE rotors.. how large are those front rotors?! GREAT PICS!!!

    Re: geertf60's Maranello shots

    Now that Maserati makes no sence !? why would they put a rollbar in a Quatroporte ?? Maybe testing a new engine, for a future Ferrari model ?

    Cool pics!!

    Re: geertf60's Maranello shots

    wow, great pics geertf60~~
    you're rennteam's spyshot division head???



    Re: geertf60's Maranello shots

    AWESOME pics!!!!
    I can't wait to see the production "600 Imola".

    Re: geertf60's Maranello shots

    awsome pics...but this 600 thing looks like a corvette right now lol....hope its good! the 575 SA on the othr hand looks good...nice to see the whole lineup (nearly) out there!

    Re: geertf60's Maranello shots

    Great, great pics! Thanks very much for sharing!

    Concerning the Maranello successor: I think we don't have to be too worried at the moment, the car still has A LOT of camouflage. So just wait and see...

    Re: geertf60's Maranello shots

    awesome !!!!!!!

    Thanks Ron and thanks geertf60


    Re: geertf60's Maranello shots

    woah, awesome awesome pics!

    does that grey 575M parked infront of the F600 have the ceramic brakes?

    Yes, it has the HGTC option.

    Re: geertf60's Maranello shots

    Fantastic!!! thanks for sharing.

    And Valentino at the wheel of the F1 yet again if it wasn't for the fact that he has signed another year with Yamaha I would think he would be in the Ferrari F1 line up next year Massa better be worried for 2007

    Re: geertf60's Maranello shots

    The front engine Ferrari's just doesn't do anything for me. I know they are great performance cars and sound terrific but I cannot get excited about buying one.

    I think I would choose the Porsche sedan before the 600 or 612; unless of course, Porsche builds a zillion of them like the Cayenne and its sport car lines.

    Re: geertf60's Maranello shots

    Wow! I like the looks of that. And oh my gosh, that pile of Ferrari Parts looks "ripe for the picking!" That F430 front bumper and the wheel, and I think I see some F1 car stuff, that would be on my wall. I already have a chunk of the back bumper of a 360 Challenge racecar from Montreal.

    The Top Gear Episode was amazing this car got me glued to the tube! great Pics

    I figured these shot will get around fast, I had to watermark them so geertf60 could get the credit.
