Some Pics from the Ferrari Parade today....
There were a total of 61 Ferrari's in total ....with around 25 different models ranging from the ultra rare 1957 166MM to the present 599...some of the absolute stunners were the
250 GT,512TR,360 Challenge Stradale,575M,SuperAmerica not to forget the F50 and F40

I guess the only significant car missing was the Enzo(which to my knowledge in Australia only Lindsay Fox posses...with the controversial Yellow top)

Smile Happy B'day Ferrari

Got a chance to see Ferrari displaying its super car in Melbourne.


Ferrari is celebrating its 60th anniversary with a unique car display in Melbourne that includes the first Ferrari to arrive in Australia, some of the remarkable super cars that created the Ferrari legend, including the Ferrari F40 and the Ferrari 288 GTO, along with the latest model, the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano.

Opening on 1 March 2007 at Melbourne's Crown Entertainment Complex, the unique Ferrari display is part of a global celebration for Ferrari's 60th Anniversary and Ferrari have ensured that the exhibition is much more than just a car display.

The central theme of the display is technological innovation pioneered by Ferrari in the 60 years of its existence. For the occasion, Ferrari will display six of the most high profile cars each displayed on individual podiums supported off the water tablets as if floating, within the Atrium area including 288 GTO, 599 GTB, F40, 246 Dino, 250 GT and 212 Inter.¬

The Ferrari 60th Anniversary Display is set to become one of the most dynamic events held in Crown's Atrium area and will be the first chance people will have to see these unique cars on display within such an impressive and dynamic backdrop.

This unique display will be an artistic presentation more typical of an art gallery as apposed to the usual car show presentation. Crown has worked towards creating an exhibition which presents the cars works of art, showcasing their sheer beauty.


The cars on display are:

* Ferrari 212 Inter (1951): Not only is this a significant model for Ferrari this is the actual car that was the very first Ferrari to arrive in Australia. Launched just three years after Ferrari built its first road car, the 212 Inter, a sober and elegant sports car, proved for the first time that Ferrari could produce beautiful road cars as well as track winners and super sports cars. This particular 1952 Ferrari 212 Inter, has a full alloy body by Vignale. It was originally painted a soft yellow, with a pigskin interior much the same as the interior colour it has today.¬ ¬ There were a total of 80 Ferrari 212 Inters built between 1951 and 1953.

* Ferrari 250 GT Cabriolet (1959): This classic car saw a return to open top Ferraris when it was launched and its clean lines also saw a new level of ease of driving, something that did not blunt its 250 kmh top speed.


* Ferrari Dino 246 (1967): Today's Ferrari F430 can trace its roots, in its mechanical layout, styling and ethos, back to the compact mid-engined coupé that debuted in 1967 and brought mid-engined road manners to the road.

* Ferrari 288 GTO (1984): There are two names that are the stuff of legend at Ferrari - Testarossa and GTO. The 288 GTO, even for a Ferrari, is breathtaking in its styling, boasts shattering performance and with just 288 built, one of the most coveted Ferraris of all time.

* Ferrari F40 (1987): Even by Ferrari standards, the F40 built to mark the company's ¬ 40th anniversary was a benchmark car and was the last super car devoid of electronics, making its performance - 0-100 kmh in 4.1 seconds and 324 kmh flat out - raw and demanding, as well as blindingly quick even 20 years later.

* Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano (2006): The culmination of 60 years of automotive excellence on and off race track, the 599 GTB Fiorano draws together technology from Formula 1 and from Ferrari's road car expertise to produce a car that is actually quicker than an F40, but which is also luxuriously well equipped and, depending on conditions and driver requirements, docile and easy to drive or shatteringly quick.
