Our entire goal with Ferrari Friday was to get passive fans who loved Lou La Vie to start sharing all of the awesome car pictures they had. We didn’t expect much of a response since there are ridiculous quantities of social outlets for sharing unique and artistic Ferrari shots. Of course, all of you (you being all the raging LLV fans who shared, liked, commented or contributed) stepped up to the plate, grabbed a camera, and got involved. Who knew a thriving exotic car rental agency in Miami could bring together so many Ferrari enthusiasts? We’re not gonna lie – the first week’s response was a bit surprising. By now, we’re inundated by an avalanche of beautiful Ferrari shots submitted every Friday. They are the kind of shots that make every Ferrari fan, including us, struggle for breath and make our car senses tingle from pure, unquenchable excitement. This is what we love.
Since we have been receiving a large number of submissions on a weekly basis, we’re planning on changing up the submission system and we also decided to add in some incentives for participating, starting with the fan-elected winner of the February 15th Ferrari Friday. That’s right. The fan-elected winner of each Ferrari Friday will be receiving some exclusive deals, gear, and special gifts.
How do you get elected? Simple! The picture that gets the most likes on our Facebook page wins the prize.
The Result – Ferrari Friday February 15th Submissions
We received two dozen submissions for the contest within 8 hours of posting it on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. The competition was fierce and selecting winners was about as easy as beating Top Gear’s Stig around the track since each week’s submissions raise the bar ever higher.
Some say he beat Richard Hammond in a Pagani Zonda on the track while driving the reasonably priced car. All we know is these are the third Ferrari Friday winners.
Winner #1 – Norm Morton – 1974 Ferrari Dino and Ferrari F50
The 2005 Cavallino Classic, featuring a 1974 Ferrari Dino and a Ferrari F50 sitting side by side.
The immaculate 74’ Ferrari Dino looked stunning, even when the car rests superimposed on a Ferrari F50. It’s a throwback to a once highly popular and now ultra-rare (see: expensive) Ferrari that showed 2005 Cavallino Classic patrons the incredible advances Ferrari has made in just 30 years. Thanks to Norm for once again tapping his trove of pictures and bringing us more Ferrari eye candy. Norm can be found on Facebook.
Winner #2 – Shawn Pierce – Ferrari F50
A shot of the iconic Ferrari F50, taken in the paddock at Lime Rock Park in 2011.
Shawn has been an active contributor since the beginning of the Ferrari Friday contest. His shots are almost always taken in an effort to keep maximum focus on the car and minimal focus anywhere else… AS IT SHOULD BE!
“This shot of the iconic Ferrari F50 was taken in the paddock at Lime Rock Park in 2011.It was parked in between the ALMS transporters, sort of tucked in away from view so getting good shots of it was tricky. Thankfully the light that day was perfect: soft, warm and overcast which led to me being able to capture those distinguished lines.”
A big thank you to Shawn for the killer shot. You can find more of Shawn Pierce’s work on his Facebook Page.
Winner #3 – Cameron_Intomota – Ferrari 458 Italia
On a ride to Monte Carlo for the final F1 race, Cameron of Intomota shot this picture of a Ferrari 458 Italia
We were afraid of setting a precedent by selecting this picture. Cameron is our wizard videographer and cinematic master. We didn’t want to be biased and select a picture that obviously came from someone internally. But who are we kidding?! This toothy Ferrari 458 Italia looks more badass than a Chuck Norris roundhouse kick – no easy feat my friends. He snapped this shot on the way to Monte Carlo for the last F1 race. Check out more car shots from the young gun of the Lou La Vie familia at @Cameron_Intomota.
Winner #4 – Exotic Stance – Ferrari 458 Spider
Miami-based Exotic car rental agency Lou La Vie’s Ferrari 458 Spider sits poised with an F430 Ferrari sitting in the rear view during the Champion Motorsports meet up in Pompano Beach, FL.
This shot was taken at Champion Motorsport’s recent Porsche meet up in Pompano Beach, FL. We attended the event since we were eager to support Champion Motorsports who provided exotic car enthusiasts a chance to chat and talk shop. Our 458 Spider rental attracted quite the attention – drawing ooohs and aaahhhhs from those who had not seen this topless Italian in person. We thought the shot perfectly captured a departure from the F430 Ferraris of old. We think the 458 Spider surges Ferrari once again ahead of the ever-crowding list of exotic car manufacturers and brands who try to overtake the iconic brand in the never-ending race to create the greatest car ever. Check out more shots from @ExoticStance on Instagram.
Ferrari – A Journey
These submissions took us on a journey from the age of ultra-rare Testa Rosssas & Dinos to the age of the transformer-looking Ferrari F150. The look has changed, the feel has changed, but the appeal is incessant. It’s no surprise every exotic car rental agency carries one and why we have three in our stable. It is a timeless icon that speaks volumes about the insatiable goal of creating the perfect automobile of now. Ferrari is one of those special groups who have created something that will never die – a timeless symbol of beauty, power, finesse, exclusivity.
Enough talk… it’s time for a drive…
