Festa di Ferrari Concours – Stamford, CT

October 5th, 2009 by Stu

1963 Ferrari 250 GTE

In one day I have attended a Concours d’Elegance dedicated to Ferrari, enjoyed a CNBC Biography about the legacy of Enzo Ferrari and stumbled upon the high octane chase scene in Bad Boys II where Will Smith’s 575MM victoriously chases down gun-toting Jamaican drug dealers driving a stolen tractor trailer. All this media exposure, public attention and unbridled enthusiasm for a brand that has never aired a single advertisement. It seems there is something to these cars from Maranello. Something beyond horsepower, top speed and technological advances. Something that gives young boys goose-bumps and makes grown men cut checks for obscene amounts of money.

The Ferrari Club of America’s New England Region gave the people what they wanted on Sunday at the 5th Annual Festi di Ferrari Concours in Stamford, CT. In attendance were loads of Prancing Horses from the last 50 years – everything from a beautiful 1957 335 Sport Spyder to a menacing 2009 430 Scuderia. There was even a Fiat and Maserati thrown in for good measure.
