While Corvettes and American muscle cars make up the bulk of the Lingenfelter Collection, as you can see from the previous posts that Mr. Lingenfelter appreciates exotic cars as well, including some choice Porsches, two rare (one exceptionally so) Lamborghinis, and other drool-worthy cars like a Saleen S7 and a Ford GT. It’s clear, though, that he particularly likes Ferraris, with seven on display when I was there. As with the rest of the Collection, the Ferraris are great examples of the marque, including some that righteously deserve the appellation “iconic”. Though I’m sure that eventually there will be a 458 Italia in the Collection, the current Ferrari lineup is represented by a 599 GTB in red. Next to the current grand tourer from Modena is another great front engined Ferrari, the 575 Superamerica Maranello also in red. Actually all but one of the Ferraris were red, the exception being a 430 Scuderia 16M spider in yellow. A second 430, a coupe, sits beside the spider. Then you get into the super supercars. First an Enzo, the final one made, #399 of #399. Like many of the cars in the Collection, the hood was slightly ajar so that a Battery Tender could keep everything topped up. All the cars in the Collection are capable of being driven on a few moments notice – and they are almost all regularly driven. Next to the Enzo is the F40, the original supercar and finally, what I think is the prettiest Ferrari in the group, a 288 GTO.
