Ferrari Enzo – Scottsdale Road & 101 Loop: Scottsdale, Arizona

April 5th, 2013 by Matthew

blackenzodistance

Mike Myers used to do a skit on SNL called Coffee Talk where he played a middle-aged yenta talk show host named Linda Richman who’s shtick was to schmooze with guests over a cup of Joe. It’s one of the funniest skits the show has ever produced. Car guys like coffee too. What can be better than a piping hot cup of delicious java in your hand, a gaggle of beautiful rides in your purview and like-minded cars guys all around you just itching to talk shop. Of course I’m talking about Cars & Coffee, the national enthusiast organization  dedicated to, well, cars and coffee.

A Nice Italian Couple: NW Lovejoy & 13th – Portland, OR

September 19th, 2012 by Emir

It always breaks my heart to see red hot sports cars all by their lonesome. It’s kind of like a model with no one to hang out with on date night. These two make a menacing couple don’t you think? Perhaps they met through an online dating service for exotic Italians.

Car Spotting in The South of France

August 16th, 2012 by Stu

Editor’s Note [8/19/12]: We mis-ID’s this luscious prancing horse (above). Our friend Jake set us straight… it’s actually a Gemballa-tuned Enzo, not an FXX. I guess this owner will have to make due with his slightly less advanced million dollar race car. Hey, somebody’s got to do it. 

———————————————————————————————————————————————-

Car spotting at its finest…in the South of France and Monaco. These tasty shots are from the garage of the Grand Hotel du Cap Ferrat and the equally choice Hotel de Paris in Monte Carlo

Above, Ferrari’s absurdly exclusive FXX. An Enzo on Steroids, the FXX was engineered exclusively for the purpose of garnering enthusiast feedback and providing VIPs with access to the brand’s latest racing tech.  Kind of like an R&D think tank for Ferrari’s best customers. If you can believe it, buyers (all 29 of them) fork over $1.8 million to track the car on select days set forth by Ferrari. Data-monitoring and telemetry technology not only allow the driver to improve performance, but also provide Ferrari with actionable data to improve the FXX and future road-going Ferraris. Oh yeah, and it only takes 100 milliseconds to shift

More shockingly exotic vehicles below…Aston Martin One-77, Bugatti Veyron, Mercedes SLR McLaren Roadster, Mercedes SLS AMG, and a charming Morgan 4/4

Thanks for the awesome spots Danny!

Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona: NW Alder & 17th – Portland

July 31st, 2012 by Emir

Compared to the golden era of automotive design that defined 50s and 60s car culture, it’s safe to say that the 70s weren’t exact a watermark decade for style on 4 wheels (don’t get offended…you know I’m right for the most part). As it often does, Ferrari snubbed its nose at the trend when they unleashed 365 GTB/4 into the world as a replacement for the stunning beautiful 275 GTB. Its striking design is characterized by a dramatically long hood and short rear deck. Sports Car International Magazine liked the car so much they named it as their top pick for the decade back in 2004. We tend to agree!

Happy gazing…

Ferrari FF – Madison Avenue, NYC

April 4th, 2012 by Stu

The life of a traffic cop isn’t glamorous. In fact, these civil servants must endure aggression and generally hostile behavior from irritated motorists all day long. There’s even a reality show about it. That’s precisely why this colorfully garbed gentleman didn’t skip a beat when it came to write up the owner of this new Ferrari FF parked on Madison. Hell, it’s  probably the most fun he’s had in weeks.

Maybe this well-to-do owner will wise up and feed the meter next time.

Ferrari California – East 76th Street, NYC

May 28th, 2010 by Ian

The name California might sound familiar but the new drop top is anything but typical for the Italian fabricator of automotive lust. With California, the list of Ferrari-firsts is long – among them, the first front-mounted V8, first 7G dual clutch gearbox, first use of a retractable hardtop, and first multi-link rear suspension. I think there is however a couple of familiar family traits we can all agree have carried over nicely into the all-new model. It’s damn sexy looks and ability to make people want one.

Ferrari 250 GTO (replica?) – 101 Freeway, Hollywood

December 1st, 2009 by Mike

250GTOon101

Considering that Ferrari only made thirty-nine 250 GTO cars, the odds are that this one I spotted on the freeway is a replica. The long-haired, mustached, t-shirt-wearing guy behind the wheel was no indication either. In LA, that description fits millionaires and homeless people alike.

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.

Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano – 5th Ave – NYC

April 28th, 2009 by Ian

ferrari-599-gtb-fiorano

This Rosso Corsa 599 was spotted turning onto 5th avenue one soggy afternoon. The nearly $303,000 flagship is named for its 12-cylinder’s displacement (5999 cc), Gran Turismo Berlinetta body style and Ferrari’s Fiorano Circuit test track. The driver won’t be able to use many of the 612 ponies amidst all the tourists and shoppers but gawking was certainly in top gear.
