2011 Kuwait Concours d’Elegance: La Bella Italia

No country is more passionate about anything than Italy. They can make cheese sound like a work of art. So, it’s only natural that they create some of the most beautiful looking automotive pieces in the world. Hence, “La Bella Italia”, which was made up of the Al Zayani Motors Ferrari parade along with other Italian makes scattered throughout the parking area.

Ferrari Enzo. One of 400 cars ever to be produced.

Not only was it nice to be surrounded by Prancing Horses, but I got to meet some very special individuals as well. I got to have a chat with Wayne Carini, from Chasing Classic Cars (broadcast on the Discovery Channel in the Middle East), who is a living legend when it comes to finding and securing rare cars. A great guy and an honor to have him and his wonderful team in Kuwait. I’m hoping to get a short interview with him if possible before he leaves.

I even got the chance to speak with Valentino Balboni, legendary Lamborghini test driver who recently retired after spending 40 years with the brand. He’s actually pictured in front of a Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2 Balboni Edition. How cool!

Ferrari Testarossa F512 M.

Ferrari 360 Modena.

Ferrari 599 GTO. This is one of 599 cars ever to be produced.

Ferrari F430 16M Scuderia. One of 499 cars to ever be produced.

    Me too!! I was walking up the hotel ramp and saw him strolling on his own; I went up to him right away and I think he was surprised that somebody recognized him in Kuwait.
