The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is very well regarded for its glitzy nightlife and luxury shopping, yet it can now lay claim to something really exciting, at least for people like me.
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 quintessential Ferrari Mancave.
Located in a discreet section of the city stands a privately owned collection of 40 Ferraris including Michael Schumacher’s F1 racer and some of the rarest models ever produced. Plus a Prancing Stallion with V12 exhausts.
YouTube’s Shmee150, previews this collection, and you can watch his commentary on the likes of the LaFerrari, SA Aperta and Koenig 512 BB below:
Some of t other Ferraris in this collection are a 550 Barchetta, 512M, 599 GTO, F355 Fiorano Edition, 360 Challenge Stradale, 430 Scuderia 16M and a tailor-made California T.
And there is Ferrari memorabilia
A signed Michael Schumacher helmet to a Prancing Horse crafted from ‘gears and parts’, all of the artifacts were commissioned by Ferrari themselves for various global events. Including a sound system for an iPod designed within an exhaust manifold.
There are dioramas too
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.
A most impressive artifact by far is the Ferrari chandelier, designed to showcase the Prancing Horse in special livery has to be seen to be believed.
As Mr. Schmee says throughout the walk about, this is “Ferrari Heaven”.
He signs off the video with “Mind blown. Astonishing” and I agree.
HeffX-LTN overall technical outlook for RACE is Bullish in here there is very little resistance here and none above 140.26.
