Man Sues NYC Garage for Crashing Ferrari 458 Spider, Diminishing Value by $140,000
"You're driving a car 5 mph in a garage, it's almost impossible to do that unless you're really careless," said the owner.
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.
Ferrari 308GTSi Once Owned by Miles Davis Sold on eBay
Mercurial jazz musician Miles Davis owned several exotic cars. Now his Fly Yellow 1980 Ferrari 308GTSi has a new owner.
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.
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 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.

1 of 55 Ferrari California Spyder Is The American Dream.
Despite being rebodied in 1962 from a 1959 250 Coupe, this stunning example is matching numbers with all build records to boot Widely acknowledged as both the most sought after and most beautiful car ever produced, the Ferrari California Spyder is a testament to what the twentieth century facilitated in terms of engineering and design. The grand-tourer to beat all grand-tourers, this is the car you dream of when driving into that idyllic sunset listening to Hotel California as you waft down Route 66. The 250 series Ferraris produced between 1953 and 1964 are undoubtedly their most famous.
