Ferrari Superamerica 2005

Something rather rare today, seen last month at the Ferrari showroom in Wilmslow, a Ferrari Superamerica. This convertible version of the 575M was only produced in 2005. 559 cars were ever built, 57 of which were right hand drive, which makes this one particularly rare! It had a carbon fibre structured roof which rotate 180 degrees and a 5.7 V12 engine producing 532bhp. The top speed is 199mph or 320km/h and 0-62 covered in 4.3 seconds. Not bad for a "convertible"!

Insider 21 - Ferrari 612 Scaglietti 2005

It's been a while since the last Insider post so here is a new one in the series. As you will have probably spotted on the dashboard, I am behind the wheel of a Ferrari 612 Scaglietti. I took the picture last weekend at Ferrari Stratstone in Wilmslow. You don't see many 612 around and I can't believe I forgot to take a picture from the outside. In 2004, the 612 replaced one of my favourite Ferrari, the 456, and it was itself replaced in 2011 by the FF. The 4-seater has a 5.7 V12 which produces 540bhp. It has a top speed of 199mph or 320km/h and 0-62 only takes 4.2 seconds.
