Is there a more lustable car than this? It has everything: a gated shifter, a high-strung V12, lights that are more crouching, lying in wait than hidden. Long hood. Bumpers that laugh, because: 150 mph. Enough room for you, a sultry companion and a weekend’s worth of clothes you mostly won’t be wearing anyway.
What better way to celebrate Father’s Day than by strolling down Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, California. As it happened, Sunday was the Rodeo Drive Concours.
OK, full disclosure – this was not a chance meeting. We took a 4 day holiday from the blast furnace that is summer in Phoenix to hang out in milder climes with the beautiful people. And we were hoping against hope that the LaFerrari would make an appearance.
No such luck. We did see Bugatti no. 5. We also saw our first non-auction 288GTO. As shows go, it was a filtered, condensed version of the monthly
Cars and Coffee Hookers and Squirrels “Scottsdale Motorsports Gathering.” (Not the Penske sponsored crapfest – the real one.) Smaller than the Windgate festival of speed. Like both, it was strafed by similarly cool machines that didn’t want to linger.
