    What is the longest documented road trip in a Ferrari?

    Didn't the Factory do a round the world trip with a 599 or 612?

    Correction, a F355.

    "In 1997 a Ferrari F355 completed a round the world trip taking in all five continents. The car was driven by 147 different journalists from the various countries it crossed and each one left his signature on the car’s bodywork. 1997 was also Ferrari’s 50th anniversary and the World Tour, as it was known, was staged to tell the world how very much alive and successful the company was and also to demonstrate the reliability of a model that would prove of huge strategic importance in Ferrari’s development. The adventure proved an extraordinary success with the F355 leaving New York on 18 March and returning there to finish the tour after 75 days, quite literally, on the road."

    Those are awesome articles!

    I was wondering more along the lines of a private person without 100+ drivers and a team of mechanics.

    Like a real world pair of drivers taking a personal Ferrari on a road trip?

    There's a recent thread where an F-chatter took his vintage Ferrari on a road rally in China. As before, not sure if it's the longest, but lots of pics, very cool.
