My new Ferrari has arrived - short video

As promised, a very short clip from the delivery of my new Ferrari this morning. Not sure when I'll get the chance to use it! Now that's a different story... I will take some better vids once I can move the car from the garage.

All the best chaps

Congrats, Thorpey ! Looks fabulous. Be careful not to burn that clutch. Enjoy the manual reading while the snow disappears. Looking forward to your driving impressions and comments. w/ smiles Jimmy

Congrats. All the best. She looks fantastic. Must be agony not being able to drive her. Who is driving it in the video? It looked tricky with the ice coming through gates. Look forward to seeing more pics and videos

Congrats. It's going to be LOOOOONG winter! Ever since I own Ferraris winter seems to be 3 times as long. And I bought them in summer, can't imagine what it's like to wait before you can take it for the first spin as an owner!!

Good luck - seems like a fantastic choice.

First impressions of the care are absolutely superb. WOW - what a piece of total engineering.

The quality of everything that I touch is, well, Italian...

The leather smells just sooo expensive. The steering wheel is a piece of art all in itself and the bodywork is like a beautiful sculpture. It sounds just like I remembered and hoped for.

To say this car is mint is an understatement.

I can't find a spec of dust even around the wheels. The previous owner clearly hardly used it, and the dealer (Dick Lovett Sporting Ltd) done a super job in presenting it as it is now. Its just a kinda shame that some day soon, it'll have to go out there into the big wide World among all the dirt and crazy people.

All I need now is some sunshine and some dry days!

Now, finally for today, I need to decide. Do I sleep upstairs with my Wife or do I go and sleep in the garage with the Ferrari ???

Cheers everyone.

Fabulous - congratulations!

Sleep with your wife, but get up in the middle of the night and take a peak at the car!
