Get behind the wheel of a legendary Ferrari and drive the famous Corniche road of the French Riviera in Monaco. Yes, you can do it. A company called Monaco Auction is offering four different great drive choices on this curving, scenic road that is the perfect place to let a roadster stretch its legs and show off its horsepower and handling.
Dream Experience Ferrari Tour — For $99, you sit in the passenger seat. For $149, you drive yourself.
There’s also a longer program called King Ferrari Experience. That’s $249 to passenger and $349 to drive yourself. Except Monaco Auction calls it ‘pilot’ and ‘co-pilot’.
I’ve been lucky enough to drive a Ferrari F430 around a racetrack. Don’t ask me how fast I went. I was concentrating on the turns ahead and the tach, not the speedometer. I wrote about my own personal Ferrari dream experience in my Freewheeling newspaper column, syndicated by Motor Matters, in the San Francisco Chronicle. And, yes, mine was red also. Really, there’s no other color for a Ferrari.
