Florida Man Told Cops 'Jesus Told Me To' Drive Ferrari 360 Off Pier

Florida Man Told Cops 'Jesus Told Me To' Drive Ferrari 360 Off Pier "Jesus made me the smartest man on earth and it's so hard to have this much responsibility," the 48-year-old reportedly said to the police.

The United Arab Emirates remains well regarded for its buoyant nightlife and luxury shopping, yet it can now lay claim to something far more exciting. Dubai may be home to the greatest architecture of the modern age – including the world’s tallest chocolate sculpture – but tucked away out of public view is the ultimate Ferrari Mancave.

Located in a discreet section of the city, rests a privately owned collection of no less than 40 Ferraris - including Michael Schumacher’s Formula 1 racer and some of the rarest models ever produced. Not to mention a life-sized Horse prop sporting V12 exhausts, as you do.

Fantastico! 1963 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Sells for $7.6 Million

Fantastico! 1963 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Sells for $7.6 Million Gooding & Company beat out rivals RM Sotheby’s and Bonhams with a 2019 Scottsdale gross of $48.2 million, led by its six top-selling Ferraris. In all, Gooding sold 105 cars of 124 total, giving a sell-through rate of 85 percent, the same result it achieved in 2018 but with roughly $1 million less in total sales—a fairly insignificant difference. © Evan KleinThe top seller on the day was the much-heralded 1963 Ferrari 250 GT SWB at $7,595,000. The steel-bodied, dual-purpose street and track car is one of just 166 built and one of just 77 second-series cars trimmed to roadgoing spec.

The lucky gent to purview such a collection is none other than YouTube’s Shmee150, and you can watch his commentary on the likes of the LaFerrari, SA Aperta and Koenig 512 BB below:

Other cars in the Ferrari Mancave include a 550 Barchetta, 512M, 599 GTO, F355 Fiorano Edition, 360 Challenge Stradale, 430 Scuderia 16M and a tailor-made California T.

However, it’s the memorabilia that has us floored. From a signed Michael Schumacher helmet to a prancing horse crafted from ‘gears and parts’, all of the artefacts were commissioned by Ferrari themselves for various global events. Including a sound system for an iPod designed within an exhaust manifold.

Then there’s lashings of dioramas, Amalgam models and all manner of steering wheels, tires and exhaust tips. There’s even the front end of another F1 racer on the wall, alongside various prints of iconic Ferrari motorsport moments. Even a Ferrari endorsed, Pininfarina-styled coffee machine – because that's exactly what the world needs.

The Ferrari FF Is Proof Practical Cars Can Sound Wonderful

The Ferrari FF Is Proof Practical Cars Can Sound Wonderful Four seats, a nicely sized trunk, all-wheel drive, and a naturally aspirated V-12. This thing checks all the boxes. Some people think fun cars and practical cars are mutually exclusive. But there are a lot of great cars that can do both. The Ferrari FF is perhaps the best example. It combines a roomy four-seater cabin, ample luggage room, and an all-wheel drive system with one of the best V12s in the business. Not only does it look cool with its unique shooting brake form factor, it sounds glorious. Oh, and a reminder: These things have depreciated a good amount since its replacement, the GTC4Lusso, came out.

The most impressive artefact by far is the Ferrari chandelier, designed to showcase the prancing horse with a special get up that simply has to be seen to be believed.

As Schmee repeatedly quips throughout the walk through, this is ‘Ferrari Heaven’. He signs off the video with ‘Mind blown. Astonishing.’ We can’t help but agree.
