Very awesome, very random spot on the way to work this morning....

About half a mile from my house, pretty working class / council area, I clock something red in the corner of my eye, double back to take a look, and it's a genuine F40 being loaded into a transporter, with an F355 above.

I think this is the first one I've actually seen in the metal, honestly couldn't believe it given the location, just seemed totally out of the ordinary.

Had to check both registrations to confirm they were genuine cars - the F355 came back as real, the F40 registration wouldn't provide any details, but I found some photos of the same car at Graypaul Ferrari in Birmingham a couple years ago..

Agreed, I was all misty eyed and then saw the mirrors.

I did a Ferrari Owners Club grand tour of Europe years ago with my Dad and there was a 288 GTO on the tour with us.

It was Eddie Irvine's old car and the owner and Eddie used to be flat mates before he started in F1.

Amazing to be driving with it through the Tunnels along the Italian coast.

And I love the golf club mirrors on them.

Now that's a hell of a spot in the wild.

Sadly it's not used much but what an awesome car.

A guy I worked for used to race in the UK Ferrari Challenge and had a 360 Challenge car at the time. I remember going with him to Brands one day where he was testing on a Ferrari owners track day.

It was really surreal going around Paddock Hill following F40s and 512BBs at full chat. It was like being in some motoring dream, yet brilliant to watch their legs being properly stretched. I think to me bar day the car I was in was the least interesting on track!

looks more like the type of place where they make aftermarket bodykits. McLaren HQ is significantly more fancy (and I'd imagine secretive) than that.
