I propose the dominant reason for the back tilting ramp may also be so that the car is not started in the enclosed living space, thus the smell of vehicle exhaust is avoided.
Is it weird that this film made my eyes well up with tears? …. When I was around 12, my dad came up the driveway one night with a new 512 he had ordered in Modena. He claims is was the first one in brown — a very dark, metallic saddle-leather color that was just beautiful. And the sound of the acceleration (in the film at 1:47) just floored me. Thank you Petrolicious. Keep producing great stuff.
Absolutely beautiful, everything from the car, the color, the studio, the ramp, everything! However, I’m with Matthew on this, I’d rather have the carbed version since I think it looks even better and there’s just something special about the sound of a carbed engine.
That is the kind of studio that I would love to work in. I love the Ferrari in that colour – it’s tasteful and not too showy. Rolling out = no fumes in the studio – nice. I wonder how it rolls back in? I’ve seen an identical videoed location but with a Maserati Grand Tourismo. I wonder if this is the same architect and he has replaced the Mazza or a different architect with the same style of studio build? Great video, thanks.
Indeed. Maserati used Holger’s space for the shoot. In 2009 Maserati partnered with Architectural Digest in search of the perfect dream garage. His garage won the contest.
I’ve wanted to do this in a much more humble space, but I wonder, does the car smell up the place? When I pull up my car is hot and smells like oil and old car. I’d love to do it in my office, but I can’t stink out the clients and co-workers.
FAN-TAS-TIC ! Thank you so much !
Another incredible video! I would absolutely love to incorporate a garage into a living space for some Datsuns some day. Thank you for sharing!
Thank god for Tuesdays!
Another great Petrolicious video. Love the Boxer (especially in that colour) which is one of the most underrated Ferraris of all. Unlike Holger I would prefer the earlier Carb version as I find the extra details of the BBi a little fussy. Also the carb car has proper imperial measured wheels and tyres plus it is a little more powerful too.
Curious I saw a picture of a Ferrari 250 California LWB in the same place on Instagram recently any chance there will be Petrolicious video of that masterpiece too?
We brought the Cal Spyder over to Holger’s to be photographed for a book….I didn’t see the photo posted on Instagram
We’d love to do a video with you and your Cal Spyder! Let me know if you’re up for it.
Contact me anytime!
Not easy to link to instagram but here it is I hope http://inst.ag/u/carsbywyatt/p/ZjJX1sypj6/
That’s it (and Enzo)!!
The Ferrari 250 California was at Holger’s garage for a special project, but alas not for one of our videos. We hope to get our hands (or lenses) on one in the future though.
Not license plate?
It’s my favorite part about Tuesday, coming to Petrolicious and seeing another fantastic video. I love this space!
“A ramp to roll the car outside to start.” So simple yet so effective. Although I’m not sure if I’d get any work done in an office like that.
Thanks for this website you guys. Visiting here has become part of my daily routine.
