So many Ferrari's

Post by whiskeydry » Sun Sep 14, 2014 3:03 pm

Thanks John for making us aware of this, great event, and good to meet up again. I have tried to guess how many Ferrari's were there and it has to be over 200. Here are some photo's.
All the best

.......Also spotted this. Didn't know what it was so looked it up on Wikipedia which states:

Aspira F620

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Aspira F620 is a low-volume hand-built supercar.

Engine choices are GM LS376/480 and LS9 supercharged V8 producing up to 800 bhp with mild tuning mated to a Graziano gearbox.

This UK/European compliant road car was UK road registered under a low volume production IVA status with a MACert achieved march 2010.

Built to exacting standards including aircon, leather seats and deluxe interior, electric mirrors, race logic launch and adjustable traction control, GEMS X25 ecu, hydraulic lift suspension, varex exhaust and Aspira own big brake kit.

The total cost to produce this one off supercar is thought to be well over £200,000 and 3 years in the making. Produced using a combination of rapid 3d printing and traditional carbon fibre made parts the Aspira f620 prototype was produced by Craig Gillingham of Aspiracars Uk and Henry Nickless of Chiron world sportscars and was first shown at Autosport International, NEC, 2010.

As it remains a single produced vehicle, under low volume criteria such as used by the koenigsegg ccr the Aspira F620 has been described as the most exclusive supercar in the world today.

it was a good day; a highlight for me was seeing the old Ferrari F1 cars, present for the 'F1 clientle'. Marc Gene drove the 2012 car round for a few brisk laps and I can't help but think that even the V8s sound so much better than the current V6s . [As for FIA 'formula E', I'm not sure that will ever seem like 'proper racing' to me...]

Also pretty impressive were the 'XX' Ferraris; they are pretty quick but they sound fantastic too.

cheers

Here are some images from Tony Roberts. Brucey's car is in its new spruced up appearance.

BTW, Tony Roberts has some great images of the PH event and many of the Ferraris. https://www.flickr.com/photos/iamtonyro ... 625732561/
