    A 550?

    Well... imagine seeing Paris Hilton at your next party. She walks from across the room and says "Hi, is this your house? Is your room upstairs? Can you show me? It'll only take five minutes handsome."

    It will be like that, only better.

    The first time I went for a ride I was so excited I couldnt even pay attention to what it was even like, kinda like the first time you fire a automatic weapon, or the first time you have sex. It happens so fast you dont even realize what had happened till its over.

    Take a video camera along so you can ride in it over and over again when you get home. Don't worry about filming cool shots too much. Just enjoy the ride and film what you can without disrupting your time and you will enjoy the video later. Still camera may be necessary too.

    My first ride in a Ferrari was in a 550; i'm very spoiled, to say the least... The 550 has ENDLESS power; dead people would enjoy a ride in a 550... With a 550, you're guaranteed an experience you'll never forget... Let us know how it goes; congratulations...

    My first ride was in a 250 GT SWB. So I am really spoiled. It was absolutely unbelievable. It has a noise that puts new Ferraris to shame.

    I haven't had a ride in one, yet. But just the sound of a 355 with Tubi in a parking lot gives me goose bumps!! I'm sure you will be almost speachless as you exit the car, enjoy the ride! :)

    For me, my first ride was in a red/tan 348 spider, and it was quite a religous experience.

    The first Ferrari I drove was a 328 GTS, 7 years ago now. It only was a very short 15min. drive and it was a very, rainy day and the roads were very wet so I was a bit stressed BUT it felt fantastic! Those moments are in my memory forever. I drove that car again later and much longer in better circumstances and the experience was even better. Later I drove a F355 Spider when I had it for a weekend a few times. I was crazy about Ferrari's since I was a kid, I'm even more addicted to it since the day I actually drove one! The "I will own one, one day"-feeling is VERY, VERY strong! Hey, I'm on a mission! :D

    Greets, truly addicted Alex.

    My first Ride? I rented one in Las Vegas August 02.
    A F355 Spider… It's really indescribable! Euphoric,
    is more of a word to use… the Car just evokes the
    senses like nothing I've ever driven before, or since.
    My three Kids went Bonkers! Imagine your 17 year
    olds Friends responses when they ask: Have you ever
    driven a stick?

    ( I know, I know.. there's all lot more Ferraris do drive
    to really know the differences, but this was my first!)

    I think you have to be 25 years old to rent one.
    If you're going to Vegas, call ahead and make arrangements.
    Weekdays, no Problem, weekends though? Call way ahead!
    I won't list the company name because I don't think Rob
    would appreciate me plugging for an unpaid sponsor.
    They should be advertising here though because this is
    "THE" Forum for them to target. Just do a search for an
    Exotic Car rental place and you'll find one.

    Rent a 355 – $500/5 hrs, $ 750/24 hrs.
    (w/75 free miles + $1 per mile after)
    Rent a 348 - $350/5 hrs, $ 500/24 hrs.
    (w/75 free miles + $1 per mile after)
    360 Modena – Some one wrecked it!
    ( but it was $1500 per day!)

    And Bostonmini's right : The thirst just gets worse!!!

    Ciao

    Grazie

    Bar none I would say my first ride through the streets of Arlington in a 355 F1 spyder was better than any sexual experience I've ever had. (And I don't think I'm doing it wrong either!!!) :)

    All five senses are overloaded (okay maybe taste can be left out)...the feel of of Connolly Leather and engine heat spilling over of the seats as it hits your back, the sound of an echoing 375 horsepower monster demanding to unleashed, the smell of high octane alone conders images of unimaginable performance, and above all the look of a sh*t eating grin from ear to ear knowing how fortunate you are to ride in the finest piece of machinery in the automative industry

    pure poetry babe.

    My first ride will come tomorrow afternoon; the fellow I'm buying my 328 from is picking me up at the airport in his other Ferrari, a white Testarossa!

    My first time was in a Silver 308GTB. I was 15 or so and got to ride around a race track in the car. Back in school some class mate was really worked-up about having ridden in some car, the make of which I have long since forgotten (maybe a BMW or a Porsche or something like that) and I felt almost guilty about telling him about my ride in the Ferrari.

    My first ride was over in New Orleans in Kelly's 308. I still remember that one like it was yesterday. I laughed at Carbon attempting to keep up with us in my Acura (even with his gloves on) as Kelly nailed it on the highay.

    The very next day I got to cruise with Dale (Dr. Tax) out to the track for several laps. The 550 is a very refined car and appears to be a great daily driver. The torque it puts out is more than enough to get you where you want to go in a hurry. Your definitly in for a treat.

    Thanks again Kelly and Dale!
