I recently flew to Melbourne for a day at the Eleven40 studio in Malvern, to shoot 3 cars for private clients.
One of these was a Ferrari 458 Speciale, one of my favourite cars ever since driving one in Sydney a couple of years ago.
Enjoy the photos of the car, and the owners matching Hublot Big Bang Ferrari Speciale 45mm Ceramic watch.
This week the Ferrari Club of Australia hosted its annual National Rally, with WA being the venue for 2016. This means plenty of local and interstate Ferraris on our roads and race track, but one visitor stole the show.
A Melbourne based owner decided to bring his $3.5m Swiss-registered LaFerrari to Perth for the event. This hypercar uses a 6.3L V12 and electric motor to produce 963hp.
Below are a few photos of this stunning machine.
The newest Ferrari 458 Italia to make it to Perth is this 2011 model which was purchased in Sydney and then trucked over to WA. It looks superb in the optional Giallo Triplo Strato (triple layer pearl yellow) - especially in the sun!
Keep an eye out (and ears open) for this car as not long after the shoot it was fitted with an Armytrix Australia titanium exhaust. More mods in the pipeline also!
I first shot this Ferrari Challenge Stradale about 9 months ago but for various reasons wasn't able to get any rig shots of the car at that time. So this past weekend the owner and I finally managed to catch up early in the morning to add a couple of motion photos to the set.
I have included some shots from the original shoot in this gallery also.
This was the first Ferrari 458 Spider to be delivered in Perth. I was commissioned by the owner to document the entire process.
First up was the pre-delivery detail which was carried out over 2 days by Adam at OCDetailing.
The day after this was completed we got to share the owners excitement when he saw his new car for the first time at Barbagallo.
The following weekend I took an early morning drive with the owner to a location south of Perth for a full photoshoot.
This weekend just gone I flew over to Alice Springs to meet up with a few supercars (transported there on a truck) and their owners, same sort of idea as the previous times we went out there in 2005/6/7.
I think we covered about 2000km in the 3 days of driving and saw some amazing sites along the way – Alice Springs, Ayers Rock, The Olgas and Kings Canyon. Different place/hotel every night so we covered quite a bit of ground.
The roads out there vary a little but for the most part they are amazing and make for some great high speed driving.
Enough talking, here are some pics – obviously not a photoshoot as it was more just snapshots of the road trip along the way but I think they turned out quite well.
