Residents in the western Greek city of Patras were left scratching their heads in amazement on Friday as dozens of Ferraris roared around the streets of the port town.
Around 40 vehicles, universally seen as a symbol of speed, luxury and wealth, are participating in a journey full of events in various European cities organized in celebration of the 20th anniversary of Passione Rossa, the most popular Ferrari car owners’ club in Italy.
Greece is one of the club’s stops and more specifically the city of Patras and the island of Corfu. Passione Rossa will stage a series of events (Concours d’ Elegance, Speed Race) at the Greek destinations, giving visitors and residents the chance to see some of the most desirable and stunning cars ever manufactured.
Passione Rossa’s event is held under the auspices of the Greek Tourism Ministry.
Launched 20 years ago, Passione Rossa is headed by Fabio Barone, an Italian race driver who holds three world records for his speed and has been recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records.
