Video, White Ferrari 430 Scuderia

Wow, didn’t realize it would look that good, come to think of it I think White is one of the few Ferrari colors I really haven’t seen much of.

Gotland Ring Video

Pretty impressive video made all the more compelling by the fact it was shot on a Canon HF10 consumer cam corder.  Goes to show it’s 20% the tool and 80% the artist…but isn’t that allways the case?

Best Ferrari Video Ever

Posted by GTO3987 on YouTube, I found this via`illpayne on NAGTROC.  This video illustrates what I love about cars, the freedom, the fun, the speed.  Combined with th fact I know and drive those roads above my home here in LA.  More than anything though, this video reminds me of a Ferrari owner buddy of mine, that sticks his finger in the eye of Ferrari diaper washers, and drives the car like it should be.

This video should be preserved as Art.  Great find.
