Drive a GTO, Enjoy a Supercar Convoy and Admire a Beauty!

Written by Andrew@Shmee150

Using GoPro cameras, it’s never been easier to give others; through the avenue of video, the amazing view from the driver’s seat, the beautiful sound of combustion, and the visceral feel of speed. Through YouTube and other channels of media we get to see amazing supercar convoys in amazing places, it’s great that even though we can’t always be there, we can still experience these things. As automotive enthusiasts we admire cars for their character, and beauty, all of these things are explored in this blog post, have a pleasurable viewing experience and please prepare to be wowed.

The above video is an amazing Ferrari 599 GTO, finished in white, with a red bonnet stripe, downshifting in a tunnel and making a hard acceleration. This video shows how fast this car goes, and how loud it is in the process! Thanks to YouTube channel (mingming360) for letting us experience this.

Supercar convoys are amazing. There is nothing more exciting than seeing a stream of awe inspiring supercars go by.

The cars in this video are varied and involve many car manufacturers, this only adds to the excitement of seeing many different exotic cars in one place. We have the Enzo, Agera, Murcielago, Ford GT, Nissan GT-R, RUF CTR3, Mosler, and an R8 Spyder among others in this video, what an awesome day it was.

The whole experience is magnificent, not only for the drivers, but for everyone around. The ear splitting noise (especially the one made by the decatted Ferrari Enzo), the great smell of petrol and the enthusiasm of the drivers, and let’s not forget the looks of surprise on passers-by. All contributes to a great day. One of these great days was last year’s Wilton house supercar convoy. Shmee took part in his stunning Aston Martin V8 Vantage, and was able to take some high quality footage of a high quality convoy. Bring on Wilton house
2012! Enjoy the video.

Next up, we have a thing of beauty. Beauty is defined as a characteristic of a person, animal, place, object, or idea that provides a perceptual experience of pleasure, meaning, or satisfaction. This car fits the definition like a hand to a glove. Shot by Shmee in HR Owen Ferrari dealership in London. The Ferrari 599 SA Aperta is a convertible version of the Ferrari 599 GTO. This car is aptly named the SA Aperta in reference to Sergio and Andrea in honour of the 80th Anniversary of legendary Italian design house Pininfarina. This car is finished
in baby blue and looks stunning. With the mechanicals of the GTO and a convertible, this also car moves very fast. Now relax, and take in the delights of an object of beauty and 661bhp.

Thanks for Reading and watching the videos, I hope you enjoyed the post and are looking forward to more exciting things. Stay tuned for much more!
