    Spend a bit of time in Monte Carlo, and you will soon notice how the big mercs, porsches etc are standing all alone while small crowds are posing for a picture around nearly every Ferrari. A 348 actually "beat" a yellow Gemballa in terms of public attention the last time I visited .. It doesn't say much about how good the cars are, but Ferrari is definitively a unique brand.


    I do not think its because it unique, but so rare that you see one. Porsches can be seen everywhere, the same with Merecedes. But Ferrari? Hardly ever do I see one in the street. I see maybe a thousand Mercedes for every Porsche I see and maybe a thousand Porsches for every Ferrari I have seen. So I think that it not so much a unique brand but a very rare brand. Even I who loves Porsche would gawk at a Ferrari if I ever get the chance to actually see one on the street.



    Believe me it is definitely not rare in Monte Carlo


    I am positive it not the locals that are posing in front of the cars, it is the tourist. So for them, the ability to see a Ferrari in the flesh and see many of them is a big thing. In fact, I think the last time I was in Monte Carlo, my wife wanted a similar picture.

    True. My 3rd generation twin-turbo RX-7 had a crowd around it almost every day it was out on the street in Suttgart Zentrum and any other major city I drove it to from Paris to Berlin. The car was unique in that setting. Please pardon the bragging, but I miss that car.

    Been to Monte Carlo several times, and man, there is eye-candy everywhere you look. Park your carcass in one of the sidewalk cafe's...look, there goes an aston martin, ferrari, Lambo, porsche, nobody even looks at the Merc's and bimmers, mcclaren f1 (yes), fantastic women, big boats,...it goes on and on.

    One of my favorite places to visit.
