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. «
