This year at the Goodwood FoS, besides the usual lineup of modern and classic Ferraris on display, fans of the Prancing Horse were also greeted by Chris Evan’s “Magnificent Seven” Ferraris.
This is one of those rare occasions that world’s coolest ginger brings the whole collection, arguably the best of its kind in the world, for a public event. And as always, there is good purposes behind it.
As you may know Chris uses his cars to raise money for charity. For instance he lends them to people, who are willing to pay for his favorite charity, and let them drive these magnificent and incredibly expensive vintage Ferraris. This year at the Goodwood event, Evans once again concluded his charity drive and dine event with a full throttle assault on the hillclimb at Goodwood, raising £1.1million for Children in Need. Great man.
This year’s selection of vehicles featured the best from Maranello’s past and present, including the latest Ferrari limited editions, the SA Aperta and the 599 GTO. They were joined by the F40, 250 GT Lusso, 275 GTB/4, 288 GTO and 365 GTC. Several fine examples of other classic Ferraris from the 1950s, 60s and 70s also took to the hill, including a unique 375 MM from 1953.
Ad yes, the new Ferrari FF was also present and was driven by James Martin, TV personality and celebrity chef. Also, Marc Gené once again took to the track in the 2010 Ferrari F10 single-seater, which was driven by Fernando Alonso during his fight for the F1 title last year.
