Was listening to this with the Bose cranked on my 370z roadster this morning. Sounded amazing!
And Mr. Feri is exactly the kind of person I imagine owning one of these…one who loves it, but also uses it. Bravo!
Wonderful video and the sounds – timeless and at Mosport brilliant.
Excellent video, great sounds, smart production and editing. I rather like the look of the 250 LM and am glad to see it on a track as more than a museum piece. Well done!
As a car kid, my passion for racing / sports cars was solidified attending an open track day @ Lime Rock Park in 1974. My buddy worked at a shop in Brooklyn and knew the owner of 250 LM s/n 5845. He asked Mr. Okada if he would mind giving me a few laps around the circuit. It had started to rain and the track was clear of participants. Needless to say, the memory of tip-toeing that beast through the downhill onto the main straight with the rear-engine sensation is what I remember most.
What a wonderful and fulfilling film, the delightful owner described his passion so well, so genuine in his love of the cars design, beauty, sound, ferocity. So lucky for us that petrolicious was able to share the car and it’s gentle caretaker.
Not the most beautiful Ferrari (to my humble eyes), but, still, you can sense Mr. Ferri’s passion in every single word and expression! Beautiful!
Amazing to see Mr. Ferri and this legendary car at the legendary Mosport track where the Canadian Grand Prix was held for many years. I met Remo many, many years while working for a local Italian TV show and doing a story on Alfa Romeo. His passion and love for Ferrari really comes out in this film. Most of all it was great to see my city of Toronto represented in your great collection of motoring movies. Grazie Petroliscious!
Everything about this car is poetic and the owner’s passion is so obvious. Thanks to the creators of this film for the photography and nice pace. I could have watched and listened to it for a lot longer.
I found an LM I Boston for a good friend back in the 1980s. It was owned by a guy named Najarian who claimed to be former Ferrari test driver. We took the car to a Ferrari Club event at Line Rock where my friend let me take out. After a few laps I smelled gasoline fumes so pulled into the pits to find the fuel filler gasket had dried out allowing gas to run down the inside fender wall into the engine compartment. Short day but it was a blast to drive.
Funny, I’ve never felt one of the more beautiful Ferrari’s, but designed to do the business and it did.
Yeah, this is definitely Mosport. The 330 P4 was filmed at Tremblant, though. Great excuse to rewatch it!
Hey Stephen. That was actually shot at Mosport. Remo’s dealership is located just north of Toronto in Woodbridge. Mosport would be the closest track to film at.
I recognize that backstraight and turn 2 from any angle.
I stand corrected… thank you!
Filmed at Mont Tremblant… what a lovely car!!! Would love to see more of it!
