Exclusive, Then it should be the 599GTO. Or something that haven't seen the light of day yet in Fezza undergrounds ? I doubt !

Ferrari GTO is still not officially unveiled. So i guess it's not the one in this truck. It could be the 599XX or the FXX.

over the word "experiance", you can see a logo resembling the F1 car, so the possbilities:
  • ferrari team's F1 cars and their belongings
  • some kind of 458 italia safety car
  • 599 GTO
or it can be an one off customised coachbuild ferraris for a very special client usually done by pininfarina.

or that it doesn't have anything, just it could be one of the world's most expensive truck which comes free with the car which can be used as its garage.

Yes, it isn't any track day . It's Corse Clienti 2010 that's going on.

The schedule and venue of 599XX, Ferrari FXX, F1 Clienti for year 2010 is same.

Next stop is Utah (9-11 April), previous was Homestead (12 - 14th March).
6 more stops this year after Utah for 599XX, FXX and F1 clienti.

The truck says Ferrari of Fort Lauderdale, FL. The cars are being transported from Florida to Utah and possibly it is en route that 14000rpm caught up with it.

So in all probability the car is one from 599XX, FXX or F1.

Below - Venues for this year

Guess the car in the truck....!! Now revealed. Its the Ferrari FXX-schedule.jpg

Default and here it goes...

well, I was driving back from Miami and was telling my wife about a Bugatti Veyron I had seen earlier and why it was so exotic and so the mood in the air was about cars. I stopped by at a rest area to take a leak and to grab my share of energy drink and just as I turn around, I see this truck pull in. initially i thought it was just another dealers truck carry 3-4 ferrari 430's.

nevertheless I asked the truck driver about the car inside.

him: you will not believe the cargo I am carrying.
me: is it a 599?
him: nopes.much more exotic
me: is it a GTB?
him: nopes. the car is a FERRARO FXX in there !!

o boy he was super excited when he said that and so was I

me: are you kididng me? it can't be..no way...
him: well, i drove it inside so i know it is THE FXX.
me: I gotta see it to believe it.
him: only if you promise not to take pix of the car inside.outside, I don't care.
me: alrite alrite.watever..God promise...(No i did not say that ..lol)

then he opened up the side door which lead into the trailer.
now, this is a full fledged temperature controlled workshop complete with telemetry and the complete tool kits made just for the FXX.
half of this trailer is split in 2 floors. the other half has the telemetry computers.it looks like a super computer setup.
in the split levels, the lower deck carries tyres and spares and tools and the FXX is on the upper deck.
we went in and he spoke all that he's seen and known about this car.
he let me walk all around the car but would not let me open the engine cover. Only the Ferrari mechanics are authorized to open it.
there was also ferrari liveried golf kart too for local run abouts.
Oh btw this was yellow in color.

him: I get to drive this once in a while. sometimes when the car needs to be warmed up and things like that and it is insane. the acceleration is mind blowing (I don't really know how much was true though)
me: this is unreal. whoever owns this must be a major customer of ferrari.
him: oh yes..and btw, he owns a MC12 too..
me: What !!! how ? where? when?
him: yupp yupp. you can see this car and all his ferrari's including one valued at over $20,000,000.its a Ferrari Daytona 275GTB/C Speciale #6885
me: address please.
him: google swap shop fort lauderdale and you'll get the location details.its a museum of sorts and public can go visit.
me:
me: where are you taking this to?
him: to salt lake city UTAH
me: why? whats the event?
him: oh its a ferrari challenge event and btw, the 599 FXX is also gonna be there. I am excited.
me: wish i can tag along. (wife is staring at me at that time)

then i thanked him and parted ways.

phew.this was a totally unexpected but super exciting car encounter.

oh and btw, this truck is made for this owner and for that car alone. no other car ever shares this truck.
so, that makes this truck a rare and exclusive one too...
