Ferrari, Lambo,Ducati factory tours! this monday!!

That's awesome. I did a semester abroad with school in Italy and have been to the Ferrari factory and museum a few times. It's a great experience, they have some really cool displays and historical cars to see. Maranello as a town is about as car oriented as it could be, if you want to save a little money you can find a lot of the same souvenirs that are sold in the factory for a little less money at some of the shops on town. Bought my dad a nice shift-gate out of a 550 Maranello as a paper weight. I told him that he could build his car piece-by-piece....

Order some of these quick and make sure to get lost during your tour. You can post the videos here because, with only 1,000 Lotus cars sold annually, no one will ever notice.

Finally? This is my 4th MV Augusta. . And, yes, I do remember you when this was Elise Talk. I believe you also had a BRP Elise.

Welcome back?

well it was not a 599 i saw it was a f12 and a new variant of the 458...

but pretty cool factory...they were a bit snooty i feel..but the lambo factory was AWESOME, super friendly and they were like here is the production line look at this check out that...NO cameras allowed but otherwise no secrets. ducati was the same way.

oh my the miura concept car THEY NEED to build it!!! not that i could afford it but sexy lines
