United Routes Helps to Make This Year’s Ferrari Finali Mondiali Unforgettable

A Historic Day for Racing Fans at Daytona


 
Fans and spectators were blown away by Ferrari’s fleet of cars engaged in stiff competition racing around Daytona International Speedway at the annual Finali Mondiali between December 1-4. This was the first time that the event took place in North America, and what better raceway for this thrilling racing event to take place than the famous Daytona.

The Finali Mondiali is arguably Ferrari’s major annual event for promoting their contribution to the ever growing world of motorsports. It involves close to 1000 of Ferrari’s, new and state of the art models, and older classic Ferrari models. In fact, an attempt was made to beat a world record of having the most Ferraris on a racetrack at once, which unfortunately was not accomplished. Besides for the cars on the track, there were several new and classic Ferrari models on display off the track as well.

Besides for the intense competition, there were many cars demonstrating pit stops, exciting accelerations and fast laps all day for the throngs of Ferrari lovers who come out to watch. Ferrari even had two of their top racecar drivers, Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen travel with their own cars to really excite the crowd with how their cars run.

This year’s show had some extra significance as well. Besides for being the first Ferrari Finali Mondiali in North America, it was also the first time that F1 cars had ever driven on the famed asphalt of Daytona International Speedway, usually used for Nascar or other motor sport events. For the regulars at Daytona, this was a real treat.

 

Making Sure the Cars Get to the Track Looking Great

As one could imagine, the entities providing the cars for the event like Ferrari North America, as well as local dealerships and collectors, obviously needed to employ a top quality company, specializing in enclosed auto transport, to ensure safe delivery of their cars to Daytona. Ferrari did not want their cars exposed in open car carriers, so that the cars would look their best at the show. With the possibility of bad weather, dust, little rocks and other debris affecting how the car could look, enclosed car transport was a must.

We at United Routes were tasked with the transport of 62 different cars for Ferrari’s Finali Mondiali. As experts in handling exotic car transports throughout the country, the delivery of all 62 cars was handled efficiently from the start, all the way up to carefully rolling the cars off the trucks at Daytona.

 

The Older Models Received Special Care

With Ferrari also bringing some very old classic models to the Finali Mondiali, our vast experience with classic car shipping came in handy. We at United Routes delicately move and ship all older models with the added touch our clients expect.

With the Ferrari event, it was no different, as our employees, with years of reliable car transport experience with even the most vintage auto models, handled each and every classic Ferrari with utmost care. This held true for the loading, transport and unloading sections of the delivery process.

Overall, we at United Routes are proud to have been part of such a momentous event in the world of motorsports such as the Ferrari Finali Mondiali. Knowing that we were able to deliver the cars in precisely the same condition as we received them, made our client happy, and gave us true satisfaction.

Shipped a Luxury Race-Car | Pagani Zonda

Enclosed Car Transport by one of our Fav drivers – Nedko!

What is one my favorite car brands ever? Well I’m so glad you asked! So here goes…(drum roll badabadabadabada….)the Pagani.

While the Pagani is shockingly not as well known by non-car enthusiast (Do those actually exist?) but among us auto lovers it’s top-tier. If “Flawless” and “Prestige” had a baby they would call it “Pagani”.

The companies flagship model the ‘Zonda’ (shipped by Nedko) was first available back in 1999. Since the original release numerous editions have been released including the special editions Zonda 760RS, Zonda 760LH and the Zonda 764 Passione back in 2012.

One of the most unique features of the Pagani is its use of carbon fiber, used in the vast majority of their cars’ external materials.

While most Pagani models are not street-legal (in the US) there is one that is – The Pagani Huayra (pronounced: wai-rah). For about $2 million you can own one – OK maybe a little out of my budget but hey it does top at over 230 mph. brwrwrwrwr – I may have just gotten the chills.

Featured Auto of the week – Trump OCC Bike

Orange County Choppers Trump Bike

This week on on the United Routes Auto Transport blog we are featuring the seductively shiny Donald Trump bike.
The idea for this custom Orange County Choppers motorcycle was first discussed many years ago but finally came to fruition in Feb 2012. Donald handed the task over to an upcoming contestant of the tv show Celebrity Apprentice, Paul Teutul SR. Paul was able to present the beauty on an episode of American Chopper.

As with many things Trump, the exotic bike was made with 24 carat gold and absolutely exquisite detail. The 100% American made bike is now currently on display at the Trump Doral located in Doral, Florida. Go see it to believe it!
