Europe in a Ferrari 550

Stephen travel blog
This road trip is to celebrate both of us turning 40 in 2013. The plan was to do a road trip through Europe, but what to do it in... We started Top Gear style thinking of an old Alfa, and ended up at a Ferrari 550. The plan is as follows:

Find a LHD Ferrari 550 in the UK.
Pop back for the weekend to see it.
Get it serviced and ready for a 5,000 mile trip.
Fly to the UK in June to watch Richard race a Ferrari 308 GT4 in the Ferrari Maranello Challenge.
Drive down to Le Mans for the 24hr race.
Drive over the Milau Suspension bridge.
Pop in to Monaco.
Visit Modena and try and get a tour of the Ferrari & Maserati factories.
Drive the Stelvio pass (the best driving road in the World...) - twice!
Pass through the Mont Blanc tunnel.
Try VMax on the Autobahn.
Stop at the Nurburgring and do a few laps.
Arrive back in the UK and ship the car back to Canada.

This is the plan so far...

Watch this space!

Cheers,

Steve & Ash
