    A few weeks ago when I was talking at my parents house about the joy of owning and running a ferrari, my mum piped up that she has driven a Ferrari when she was sixteen. Apparently her father (a journalist on a Swedish newspaper) had a friend who owned the Swedish East Coast concession for Ferrari, and she was offered the chance to drive a car on the Falkenberg racetrack. She has no idea what the car was; all she knows is that she drove it at 120mph and it was not a convertible.

    Anyone on here have any ideas what tipo it would have likely been?

    Oooops,

    Forgot to mention that it was probably 1958 or 1959, hence the posting in the "vintage" section!
