The coolest detail in my opinion is the embossed "F1 Owner's Manual" in the binding. »
Did you actually see the car in person in Beverly Hills on Sunday?
I did, and for the record I'm not a huge fan of most recent Ferrari styling efforts, but I think the F60 America looks fantastic. »
Hot exhaust pipes are very close to the fuel filler on the 918. Could have been vapor igniting or someone who wasn't careful and swung the hose that still had a bit of fuel in the nozzle. Anyway, given the number of cars that get gas everyday and don't catch on fire, coupled with the relative newness of the 918,… »
That's not an F1 LM.
That is GTR #16R converted for road use and resprayed in McLaren's traditional orange paint.
FYI: You didn't need a ticket for any of the things you saw until the point at which you were given one and entered the show field. Lucky you for the generosity of that individual as while you were surely enjoying all that was on the outside, certainly inside is better. :-)
Next year consider buying a ticket as all but… »
I am a little upset that this thing was in Monterey this year for Car Week and I missed my chance to KIWF. »
In fact, every single thing is right about it as this was exactly how GTR 19R first appeared when it left the factory for testing in late 1996. Originality adds value and nostalgia will always be cool. »
Two items in green relate solely to the KERS unit. The LaFerrari's battery pack is mounted flat underneath the passenger compartment - you can see a portion of it at the front of the engine in your photo. Here is a better view. »

Rowan's two accidents were in his own car - the same chassis 061 each time. He, along with a number of other F1 owners, was present at this accident scene as there is a Tour organized by the F1 Owner's Club running through Italy this week. »
'Show or Display' allows for 2,500 annual miles - essentially unmonitored except for the requirement that the vehicle be insured on a policy that includes that stipulation. This is true for most collector car policies. »
That trail of white/grey smoke coming out of the back of the Koenigsegg towards the end is not a good sign. »
Around the time the 4200R was released Isuzu were also offering a proposal to Gordon Murray at McLaren Cars to supply the engine for the upcoming McLaren F1 road car project. Technically they were there and could have done it, but the Isuzu brand obviously was lacking the racing pedigree to be taken seriously as an… »
Should be noted that the Gooding sale of #066 for $8.47M last August in Monterey was only the highest recorded public sale. Already there were other F1s that had traded for more, including more than the price paid in this sale, through private transactions. To suggest that the market for an F1 has moved by $1.5M in… »
