Thanks … and next time please without music.

Petrolicious does a good job with its videos, however, this isn’t MTV.
The “dramatic” music distracts from the sound of the car’s exhaust note, a much nicer melody.

Cue “Oh Yeah” by Yello
Cameron: “The 1961 Ferrari 250GT California…less than a 100 were made….my father spent three years restoring this car…it is he love, it is his passion…”
Ferris: “It is he fault that he didn’t lock the garage…”

What a beautiful car, one of my favorite designs. Too bad that the video shoot/editing and music are boring/amateurish. Also music is unnecessary too loud.

It looked like the same guy who was driving the DB4GT? Like that video the music overtook the car!

The car’s profile in the last few seconds of the film reminds me of a ‘64-66 Mustang convertible. Specifically, it is the sweeping kink at the top of the quarter panel behind the door that triggered the comparison. Now it is something I cannot unsee.

Car nuts like the sound of cars. Eg. My cars previous owner installed a “claimed” $5000 stereo. It is a rare day when it is on.
That said the music had a nice way of blending with the music of the motor, However the balance was in favour of the wrong sound. Motor first. Thanks

Voting for something closer to your 330 P4 video, which has touches of piano added in a few places and as an accent only. The rest of the soundtrack is Ferrari V-12 and words from an experienced driver who appreciates it greatly. We have room to imagine the rest.

Agree with seems to be the popular opinion here, the music was unnecessary, at least to play all the way through, it would be nice to see a less edited version, the cut without fluff, as Franz puts it 😄

Very nice sweet short video. I, however wish the classic music would be left in the background in a low tone and let the engine provide us with it’s gorgeous symphony.

Lovely video. Where was this filmed? Anyone know? At 1:48 we get some street signs in English. So this is UK somewhere . .

That road is Dancers Hill near Barnet.

I trust that wasn’t the valet from Ferris Bueller, or was it?

I enjoyed the art, the sounds, the music. Bravo, an enjoyable blend and something a little different.

Really beautiful car, but the film? Not sure.
I believe the film could have benefited from more detail and musical accompaniment as a solo from the V12.

rather than just appreciate the creation, everyone’s a critic with internet comments, which are far more disappointing than the music played. The motor sounded beautiful. Great video. The music added drama and context.

Ferrari’s are about speed, beauty and sound. This video misses two of the three elements.

This is just terrible; not only the silly loud music, but also the vid maker trying his hand at cheap scenic effect. Ah, yes, hum, what we really wanted to humbly see and hear is… Da Ferrari…

Exactly! Get rid of the music! Anyone watching this is dying to hear that engine. Nothing more.

Way too short! We need another 8 min with that car. Beautifully shot though.

As much as I enjoyed the classical music, I was really hoping for it to fade to the background and allow the real music to the fore, that of the sound of that beautiful Ferrari. Nice enough video, but more a tease than anything else.

Please reissue without the music so we can hear the car.
