Harry Metcalfe drives his Ferrari Testarossa in the Sahara
Take a moment to conjure some worthy answers to this question: “What can I do in a [Ferrari] Testarossa that’s a really good road journey?” Then imagine yourself saying, “Tomorrow we’re off to the Sahara in my Testarossa.” If you were Evo magazine impresario Harry Metcalfe, those would be the kinds of Q&A sessions you’d have with yourself, and thankfully he’s put the question and the answer in a fantastic 29-minute video.
That answer was 2,500-mile journey out of London, on boat from Portsmouth, England, to Santander, Spain, a ferry from Tarifa, Spain, to Tangier, Morocco, a drive to Marrakech, over the snowy alpine-looking Tizi n’Tichka Pass, to Erfoud, and then to the dunes of Sahara. It involved some bribes, a twice broken-down Testarossa, confiscation of a drone, tons of speed traps and at least one ticket, a pair of lucky pants, some phenomenal scenery, and Ferrari sounds, including a long stint off-roading on a washboard track. Plus, a lot of jealousy on our part. Enjoy.
