In the name of Fer­rari!

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

So, Fer­rari doesn’t want any­one cash­ing in on their name, eh? ( CCW news story, 22 March). I won­der what the com­pany thinks of Fer­rari World in Abu Dhabi?

I went to the emi­rate’s gov­ern­men­towned Fer­rari-theme park in Jan­uary and paid nearly £100 for the plea­sure.

I love old cars, mainly Jags and As­tons, but was ex­cited at the prospect of see­ing some his­toric Fer­raris. You can imag­ine how unim­pressed I was to find out they only had two ac­tual cars there – one they were try­ing to sell (a new one) and the

other was one you could be taken for a ride in (lit­er­ally) at an ad­di­tional cost.

The one in the sales blurb, a 250 GTO, was glass­fi­bre-bod­ied, as were all the oth­ers. They also wrote: ‘At Gal­le­ria Fer­rari you can get up close and per­sonal with the ul­ti­mate dis­play of vin­tage Fer­raris.’ This was a wall with 2ft-high pic­tures of cars! David Fry, by email
