LaFerrari buyer drives dream collection back to Maranello [w/video]
We’d find it hard to feel bad for someone who “has to” choose between the latest crop of hybrid hypercars. After all, the Porsche 918 Spyder, McLaren P1 and Ferrari LaFerrari are each awesome in their own right. But for one buyer, the choice was a no-brainer: it was the Prancing Horse all along. Not because he couldn’t get his hands on the Porsche or the McLaren – though we’re sure each is in higher demand than there will be supply – but because he’s already bought each of its predecessors.
That very fortunate buyer is one Jon Hunt. His collection already includes a 288 GTO, an F40, an F50 and an Enzo – each in red, naturally – so when it came time to pick up his new LaFerrari, he drove down from London to Maranello, bringing his sons, a few friends and each of his F-cars (as the tifosi call them) along for the ride.
The result, as you can see for yourself from the photos above and the video below, is one very compelling and drool-inducing family photo. It’s not every day, after all, that you see any of these cars on the road – let alone together in one place.

Maranello, 18th July 2014 – Yesterday was a very special day in Maranello as one of the great Ferrari collectors, Jon Hunt, arrived to take delivery of his new LaFerrari in style, having driven all the way from London to Modena with his two children and a group of friends in a GTO, an F40, an F50 and an Enzo, cars that tell the entire story of the Prancing Horse’s passion for limited edition special series cars.
Before setting off on the return journey to England, Mr Hunt paid a visit to Fiorano where he spoke to Ferrari.com: “Ferraris are the ultimate sports cars as far as I’m concerned,” he told us. “I love driving them all, each one is different. I’ve clocked up over 16,000 km in the Enzo alone, for example.” When asked about his latest arrival, he declared: “I was completely blown away after just 5′ behind the wheel. I can’t wait to get to know it inside out but I can already safely say that the LaFerrari is a spectacular car.”
