I’m sure we can all agree that there are certain songs that supply the background music to the important moments in our lives. We all have our own personal original soundtrack. If you are a petrolhead, you will probably also have a personal “soundtrack” of cars that hold special meaning for you. Some, such as the Ferrari Testarossa and the McLaren F1, will always have that meaning. However, there are also a great many others that, for one reason or another, play a major role in our life stories. At Gentlemen Drive, we will continue to provide input in the form of articles and test drives, to add more cars to your list of greatest hits. Todo el mundo estará de acuerdo en que hay canciones que han marcado momentos de…

generation testarossa 80’s icon

“IF THERE IS ONE CAR THAT HAS HAD A POWERFUL IMPACT ON AN ENTIRE GENERATION, IT HAS TO BE THE FERRARI TESTAROSSA, THE CAR THAT SYMBOLIZED THE EXUBERANCE OF THE 1980S” If there is one car that has had a powerful impact on an entire generation, it has to be the Ferrari Testarossa, the car that symbolized the exuberance of the 1980s. A car that took the world by storm when it was launched in Paris in late 1984. The Testarossa has retained its stunning visual impact over more than three decades, still turning heads everywhere it goes.

90 years of 1000miglia let’s drive

“Our Chopard-Scuderia Sports Zagato had a great success with a 3rd and 4th place overall and 2nd place as a team” 90 Years of Mille Miglia: This year marks the 90th anniversary of the first edition of the Mille Miglia and the organization made every effort to offer participants and fans an special event. The route this year was really beautiful and the traffic conditions much better than in previous editions. This year was our sixth Mille Miglia as drivers and we wanted to repeat with the Chrysler 75 of 1929 that we already used last year. We made some improvements to the vehicle in both comfort and mechanical performance and although the roads were very demanding we did not suffer the slightest issue or failure although as always, we take home…
