Many of you know Cortina d’Ampezzo. An exclusive Italian mountain village that sits in an ample valley surrounded by spectacular Dolomites. It is one of the most famous and chic ski resort of the planet. Host of the 1956 Winter Olympic Games, star of James Bond’s For Your Eyes Only, Cortina still is a glitzy, glam symbol both on the Italian and international scene. A place always on the edge as a top destination for mountain enthusiasts, and — in the last years — also a supercar spotting mecca.
We had the pleasure to spend a typical winter morning with Powerslidelover and a few of his enchanting Maranello-made cars: a black LaFerrari, the first ever delivered Monza SP2 and a 488 Pista Aperta with matching livery.
Three brutal supercars, three pieces of pure automotive design and engineering technique totaling almost 2.500 hp.
Alarm at 6:30am, a quick breakfast with pane and Nutella, shooting gear check and ready to go. Roads were pretty icy, and cars had no winter tires. From Cortina to Passo Giau, Falzarego, Valparola — uphill and downhill — possibly sliding on every single hairpin. The smell of burned rubber, screaming Ferrari engines, empty roads and breathtaking views. What else?
Mr. Powerslidelover is one of the most kind and friendly person on earth, boasting outstanding driving skills — in every condition — and no hesitations when it comes to drift hyper exclusive rides. Looking at him behind a steering wheel makes the noble art of drifting so easy and natural, it really feels everyone could do the same. And we all know it is not.
Hard to understand from these pictures — made for Car&vintage by Pietro Martelletti — how fast he can actually slides on ultra narrow roads, with absolutely no space for any mistake.
What a morning we had. And, needless to say: “Don’t try this at home!”
