While we are waiting to get our hard drives back from the computer maintenance place, I thought I would share with you guys the film photos I snapped of Dream Makers’ Ferrari LaFerrari.
If you haven’t seen our last post (you can do so here) Nick and I made the short drive out to our local high end vehicle dealer to take a gander at arguably one of the greatest cars of our lifetime. Being ones to not rest on our laurels, we hopped at the chance to view one of these amazing machines in person.
The skill and craftsmanship that goes into building one of the fastest cars on planet Earth is astounding. This car, like the other two of the “Holy Trinity” (LaFerrari, Porsche 918, McLaren P1) is built to a standard that I didn’t even know existed. Every piece of the car seems to be well thought out, well made and beautiful. Which should be expected of a car that is commanding a five million dollar asking price.
I must say, black really suits the lines of the car. It looks positively sinister sitting in the corner of Dream Makers’ showroom. Sitting there patiently, sucking all of the light out of the room, awaiting it’s next victim. As if the devil himself parked the car there while he went off and damned some souls or whatever the hell he does.
The caramel tan leather contrasts the bare carbon in the interior in the most perfect, yet subtle way. As much as I wanted to hear the 6.3 Litre, electrically assisted V12 fire up and permeate the room with the raucous noises of 950 combined horsepowers. I got just as much enjoyment out of standing there gazing at it in a resting state. That’s how you know a car is not just beautiful, but drop dead gorgeous. When it’s just as beautiful sitting still as it is in motion.
There is something oddly satisfying shooting such a technologically advanced and modern car on a camera that pre-dates it by thirty years. It’s just something you don’t get to do very often. So I am very happy that I had the opportunity to do so and can’t wait till I can see another one of these cars one day. Thanks for reading, see you next time!
