Ferrari Dream Drive
The incredible Ferrari Dream Drive by Shmee150! My friend Tim (aka Shmee150) was lucky enough to be invited by car collector Greg (aka “gregb.23” on Instagram) in Milano (Italy) to drive his insane Ferrari collection (but not all of it): the Ferrari 288 GTO, Ferrari F40, Ferrari F50, Ferrari Enzo.
First of all, that’s a pretty insane invitation if you ask me. Not many people have driven ALL of those cars. Let alone on the same day. That definitely is a Ferrari Dream Drive! What I like in particular are the fact that two cars are red, and two are yellow. It might seem quite silly, but I find that interesting. Also, if you pay attention to the plates, they’re pretty fun.
As Tim says:
” Running in chronological order, I start out with the cars lined up before taking the 288 GTO for a run. The car was originally built for Group B racing before the series ended and a run of 272 (+2 prototypes) made it out onto the road as the homologated version.
Next it’s into the iconic Ferrari F40, a development of the same platform and still with the Twin Turbocharged V8. Over 1,300 were made in total, and for good reason because even to this day it’s a spectacular machine.
It’s then a start with the yellow cars, and the F50, roof off naturally. With a 4.7l V12 derived from the Ferrari F1 car’s engine from the 1990 season, it comes with a sound to do for.
Finally to round out the quad of hypercars it’s the Ferrari Enzo – named after the company founder himself. Continuing the V12 trend we now have a paddle-shift box, doors that open upwards and in this case a bypass exhaust system for added noise.
Having never driven any of these cars before, and starting off from Rossocorsa in Milan, Italy, it meant a short and very careful drive in each car however that’s enough for a teaser of what they are each about. “
