Last Friday, we had a bit of Web video fun with some classic European sports cars in action. Out of all those supersweet automobiles, my favorite has to be the somewhat quirky looking Ferrari 250 GT SWB Drogo, perhaps better known as the "Breadvan" because of its unshapely and boxy exterior. Despite its hard-to-miss appearance, a reader noted that the car I focused on about the 5:10 mark in the video was in actuality not the 250 GT. I'll be the first to admit my mistakes and reiterate for the Nth time that I do not proclaim myself a know-it-all on automobiles. Mainly, I just write this blog because I think Web video of cars and racing is good clean fun--a rare pleasure in this day and age. With that said, buckle up for today's "Breadvan" video as we get a view from the inside of this classic sports car.
This video gives us a first-hand perspective of the Ferrari 250 GT SWB Drogo as it shreds the asphalt at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in West Sussex, England. Unlike a lot of video clips, whoever put this clip together did not ruin it with a bunch of crappy, overdubbed music. Instead, we get to hear that V12 roar around the track, and boy, is that music to my ears. Barring an instance where we can get behind the wheel and do the same, this is next best thing to enjoying what the "Breadvan" does best.
