The LaFerrari Aperta leads the way to start off Ferrari's 70th anniversary celebrations! To mark the occasion the first convoy with Meridien Modena takes more than 70 Ferrari owners on a drive from the Goodwood Motor Circuit to Portsmouth and for the journey I'm handed the keys to a Ferrari 250 GT Pininfarina from 1959, worth nearly £1 million.

On my channel you'll more normally see the more modern supercars but this is a truly special opportunity to drive a classic car that plays a big role in Ferrari's history and particularly the relationship with Pininfarina. The various models of Ferrari 250 such as the 250 GTO, 250 SWB and 250 California have huge provenance but it's an interesting to comparison to look at the 250 GT Pininfarina (or 250 PF for short) as the equivalent to an 812superfast of its day. Luxurious, comfortable, fast, with a 3l Colombo V12, 4 speed manual with overdrive, and some cosmetic upgrades found on other models.

Surrounded by other models including: F40, F50, F12tdf, Speciale and everything from the current line-up, taking part with the 250 PF made the event truly memorable.

A huge thanks to Meridien Modena for the hospitality and opportunity to jump behind the wheel of such a car, and of course to Ferrari for this being possible!

Thanks for watching, Tim

      Shmee150 Hey Shmee, the next time you find yourself in the States, you should see if you can find someone who will let you take a C1 or C2 Corvette for a spin. I guarantee you'll love it!

      Horse Power from Middle Earth Yes, I do have a full UK drivers licence but only have experience with manual transmissions. I know depressing the brake has nothing to do with starting the car, however, in an auto, where there is obviously an absence of a clutch in these cars, I assume that the electronic start preventor (in cars to which one has been fitted) would be using the brake pedal in instead. My initial comment was just my observation of him pressing the brake and clutch and how it must have been muscle memory from his own cars' start-up 'procedures'. The manual Ford Focus RS requires the clutch to be fully applied before starting and I assume the same is true for his Aston Martin GT8. My assumption about the auto's electronic start preventor being on the brake pedal applies to his Mclaren 675LT and Ferrari FF. This is why I assumed it is a muscle memory response when he gets into any other car to depress the brake and clutch. i was only commenting an observation I made and nothing else, was just curious if anyone else spotted it or if Shmee himself was even aware he did it. I didn't expect to be getting questioned about my driving experience as a result of such an observation. I apologise for any distress caused to you by this comment and will think twice about ever commenting like this again.

      Mark, do you actually have a driving licence, regardless, depressing the brake has nothing to do with starting the car ??
      So your point is ??

      start watching from 3:53. He starts by pumping the throttle but as he turns the ignition he moves his right foot to the brake and fully applies both the clutch and brake simultaneously. After he says 'lets fire it up' and the car is turning over he then switches to the throttle to give it some revs to finally start her.

      As an ex-paramedic the idea of no seat belts, your knees hitting the lower dash and your face and chest impacting the steering wheel gives me nightmares. Lovely car though the 250.

      I once drove a 1960 250GT series II cabriolet and it was epic. Steering was heavy and dull at low speeds (thank god someone invented power steering), the clutch pedal required 50 lbs of pressure to depress, and the brakes were non-existent. But the sound......oh that sound......it was symphonic. The raw emotion of a 60s era Ferrari is like nothing else. It's a dream. Enjoy the ride shmee....it's once in a lifetime.
