Well done, amazing car combined with a great production.
1) film: a true masterpiece of scenery-photography. Congratulations to the director.
2) The car: a) mint condition, b) what a sound!!!, c) I like the color, “aristocracy wine red” I would have called it.
3) About the wife’s permission: None of our business. We only care about ….the ferrari!!!!!
4) Doesn’t matter if he wants to sell it and petrolicious helps him to do so. Personally, though, I would never have sold it.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, Petrolicious! I love these 50’s Ferraris. I would love to see some of the coachbuilt 250’s too!
It is in the way it’s said because saying my wife and I would have to agree on a purchase that big is different than saying something like, “My wife would never let me have that!”
Think of the Facebook firestorm that would result if your wife said, “I’d have to ask my husband’s permission first.” Her friends would think you the biggest chauvinist in the world and probably try to spirit her away to a battered woman’s shelter.
Great video, as usual. Given the owner’s passion for the car, I’m a little surprised he’s parting with it. Sure he stands to make a bloody fortune, but he likely paid something close to that to bring it home.
Another spectacular film by the folks at Petrolicious! Thank you!
so is this film just an extended advert for the car when it is sold at Scottsdale?
“but there was one problem, how to convince my wife?”
always was a problem!
Actually the 340 designation refers to the cc volume of one cylinder. Ferrari 250 12cylinder 3000cc
Ferrari 340 12 cylinder 4080cc.
Ferrari 500 4 cylinder 2000cc
280 HP from 4 liters is easy with modern pump fuel and cams. Should be bit of beast on 5.50×16 tires.
Looks like chassis 0196A http://www.barchetta.cc/english/All.Ferraris/Detail/0196A.340America.htm
