Want to hear how your favorite classic Ferrari sounds? I first saw the series on Speed Channel and ended up buying the whole set! It is the only time I crank up the speaker and subwoofer setup!! The host and driver in all the videos is Alain de Cadenet, a well known racing privateer who constructed his own entries. This guy is suave and for real: move over James Bond [except for Sean Connery, of course 8) ]!

Awesome show. I always turn it up when it's on. It annoys everyone else, but they just don't understand. :lol:

DJ, right now there are only six: you have them all. I hope they come out with Auto Union, Mercedes and Lotus.
One of my favorite scenes is the beginning of the Porsche video where Alain whips that yellow 911 around those curves! Wow, talk about the car's tendency to fishtail when you don't take curves properly. I now see how alot of inexperienced 911 owners end up with accidents 8)

That guys voice is priceless. You could do a show on Yugo's and if he narrated it, I would probably watch it.

I have only seen the Ferrari show. And I thought it was done very well. I'd like to see the others.

Does anyone here remember "Joe Isuzu"? LOL! He must be Alain's evil twin.

BTW I think the Alfa-Romeo is the best: gosh what beautiful cars some of those racers are! :p

Yes, the Alfa episode is just STUNNNG, i hope that most of those cars will be at Monterey this year


and well if you haven't seen these, make sure that you get your hands on them, they are simply amazing, they don't do anything special with them, basically he looks at them, looks at the engine, and drives them a bit, but these films are just so wonderfull for the sheer beauty of the cars AND THEN THE SOUND OFCOURSE :green:

I don't think most people appreciate the rich history Alfa has; Ferrari sprang from Alfa roots! Too many people think of Alfa by way of those ubiquitous rinky-dinky Spider Veloce. What a shame that a once glorious marque has sunk into banality! :-?
