Monterey Car Week-Day 3; Casa Ferrari

Casa Ferrari in Carmel Highlands 2015

On Day Three in Monterey, CA after perusing the auction cars we took a drive down picturesque Route 1 in Carmel Highlands to Casa Ferrari.  In Italy at Fiorano, within the perimeter of the racetrack, Enzo built a house for himself, which is still kept intact including the office where he worked. Ferrari North America (FNA) created an attraction in Carmel simulating Enzo Ferrari’s house on the Fiorano racetrack for its customers and Ferrari fans to visit during Monterey Car week.

We pulled our Ferrari 250 GT/E into the Pit Stop, which offered a full-service gas station complete with attendants in old-school service station regalia. Meguiar people were on-hand offering to polish one’s car with their fine products. The Ferrari General Store offered select Ferrari merchandise such as shirts, jackets, and leather bags. We then we had the best Italian Espresso and tiny cookies at the Enzo Caffé.

The new twin turbo 488 GTB, an FF, an F12 Berlinetta and a Cal T were on hand for test drives. On the Piazza a classic vintage Ferrari – certified by Ferrari Classiche – was exhibited. Cool stuff indeed.
