Great, dry weather today in Switzerland....time to take "F" for a nice long 250 km tour...probably the last long one this season. Took my hard core Ferrarista daughter with me to have a wonderful, open roof as usual drive slowly and silently towards lake of Geneva.
Car runned flawless, calm for the first 70 km's (car feels now more "balanced" engine wise after replacing some electric connectors and boxes) towards the lake overviewing Beau Rivage Hotel in Lausanne to have a Coke and a couple of "Amaretti" sweets, then 1 hour promosed hard learning and studying for school (math and meteorology, the promise of my daughter to be able to join) while the piano player in the background played those never want to miss Jazz classics. As it already can't be better than that, we went out again into the car, passing all along the lake at late afternoon, with that spectacular, dizzy fall light falling around the lake giving the impression of looking to the sea...in Switzerland.
Anyway, this time "F" need to get the "spores". Once on the Autobahn, short sprints up to 7'000 in low gears made clear that there was nothing similar around to prevent us from inhaling the fresh fall air from the front of anywhere..."F" is deep, deep and veeeery serious afficionado stuff. Promised ! As the F12 for me seems the best "very modern" F-car I still must say that the F50 is still more sensual and talking....uncomparable.
At the end, the shining moon brought us home, quite unhappy about the end of a great "falling leaves" tour.
2 pictures from today, and one advise: Try and go and drive a F50 if you ever can and write about. I would be very interested for other comments as well.
