F50 at McLaren Tech Centre

We ventured deep into enemy territory today. Fairly certain this is a unique picture, a Ferrari F50 on the VIP road in front of the Lake at the McLaren Tech Centre.

Boxer- Bet nobody wanted to get a McLaren anywhere near her. Styling comparison would not be too McLaren favorable.

Did that at Aston-Martin's old digs with only a 308 GTS in 1983 or so, and they could not wait for me to get her out of there.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.

Boxer- Would imagine they were much more tolerant of the Jag, since they do not compete with McLaren.

Nice pictures, Boxer!
Have you checked that you still got the original F50 engine and not Fiat 500 one fitted by the McLaren guys???

They did ask me to open the rear clam shell at one point but I politely declined.

that is a great shot of your F50 from that front, three-quarter view. Brings out those front bulges beautifully. Very elegant.
