Garage Queens: Ferrari F430 Spyder – East 54th St., NYC

September 15th, 2010 by Stu

This isn’t the first time a prancing horse has nestled its way into the primo parking space you see here. A silver 612 Scaglietti usually occupies the spot. Perhaps the owner traded the nose heavy V12 Scaglietti in for this sportier, mid engine V8 Spyder. Or maybe he owns them both and was feeling a little saucy today, what with the nice weather and all. Or maybe it’s a different owner altogether and parking lot management simply makes a habit of putting the good stuff out front. Either way, we say thanks for positioning the car just prominently enough for all of us to drool over on our way to work each morning.

Ferrari F40 – Monterey, CA

August 30th, 2010 by Emir

I spotted this larger than life Ferrari F40 in Monterey, after all the Pebble Beach fanfare had come to a close. Meant to serve as a tribute for the brand’s 40th anniversary, F40 was actually the last car commissioned by Enzo before his death in 1988. The slippery, Pininfarina-designed body, whose advanced aerodynamics helped it to become the first road legal production car to break the 200 MPH barrier, is every bit as captivating as it was back in 1987 when F40 debuted as the brand’s unabashed halo car. Yes, after more than 23 years, F40 still manages to look more exotic and progressive than many of today’s exotic sports cars. The owner of this beautiful example was a little squeamish when I approached, camera in hand. He wasn’t too interested in talking shop with me, which in my experience makes him a rare exception to the rule when it comes to owners of exotic, highly collectible cars like this. But I managed to fire off a few shots before the twin-turbo engine roared to life and peeled off, leaving only the sounds of a hand-built Italian V8 in its wake.

Supercar Weekend – Flagler Drive Waterfront, Palm Beach

March 3rd, 2010 by Stu

Flagler Drive Waterfront was packed with precious metal last weekend for Supercar Experience Palm Beach, also known as Supercar Weekend. The event series, which also includes tour stops in other well-to-do locations like New Orleans and The Hamptons, is a unique experience to say the least. After all, where on earth can you see this much horsepower, hand crafted coachwork and radar-touting cops in one place at one time. You can thank Florida-based sharp shooter and Man on the Move guest photographer Blake Simon for the exotic car porn to ensue after the jump.

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.

Mercedes S63 AMG – Madison Avenue, NYC

S63 AMG 1

Whether driving yourself or being driven, these opulent bruisers from AMG are likely the fastest way to get around Manhattan. Hell, they cost as much as a waterfront condo in Detroit and have more power than than a flippin Ferrari F430.

Corvette Z06 – 7th Avenue, NYC

July 21st, 2009 by Ian

Corvette Z06 1

Pictured here on 7th Avenue, this no-nonsense American exotic holds its own against Europe’s finest for considerably less coin. In fact, the only cars on the market to offer equal or better performance for the dollar are GM sister vehicles like Camaro SS and Cadillac CTS-V.

ferrari-f40-rear-quarterThe F40 comes from a long line of range topping halo models that have traditionally been relied upon to bolster the supremely advanced, exotic and world class brand image that is the prancing horse.

911 Turbo – Soho, NYC

February 16th, 2009 by Ian

911-turbo
After more than 80 years, the cars that bear the Porsche name still manage to give us goose-bumps every time. We spotted this “meteor metallic grey” 997 series (2005-present) trying to blend into the cobblestones of Soho. But it’s pretty hard to miss those bright red brake calipers peeking out from behind 19″ Turbo wheels.  And with a sub 4-second 0-60 time, this guy will be in Tribeca before you can blink.
