Wolfgang Von Trips at the wheel of the #Dino246 F1 during the 1958 German GP, on the famous karrusel bend. He arrived fourth on the race being the best Ferrari classified. Hawthorn and Moss battling for the championship both abandoned and Peter Collins had the accident that cost him his life
So every few months, Continental Cars Auckland has an open day at their Christchurch outpost. J n I went to the first one and really enjoyed both the new cars on display but also the customer cars that turned up while we were there.
Yesterday was another open day so we went for a squizz... A new Portofino (California replacement and new to me) and V12 GTC Lusso we’re there plus a F355 Spyder....yummy stuff!
However, an even greater treat arrived while we were there.... Top of the range (LaFerrari excepted) 812 Superfast! All Six Hundred and Fifty odd Thousand dollars..... Neil, a nice sales consultant offered us a seat, so I suggested J go first. Neil then said to J “ put your foot on the brake pedal and push the red button on the steering wheel! J’s first ever Supercar start-up and he starts with a ‘Superfast!? 😳🙄🤦🏼♂️😍 Neil gave it a few revs with his hand on the throttle....I had to go and have a lie down and a cigarette 🔥😳. And today they had a local owners drive out so we had to go down have a geez......19 cars attended :-) There were a few enthusiastic throttle pedals as they left....a bit off opposite lock and away!
