Top Gear Style

Jeremy Clarkson had nothing on me today! Yep, after a hyper-car Photo shoot today I was treated to a set of keys to the drivers seat of the Maserati MC12. Talk about a day you will never forget.

As for the experience of sitting inside Maserati's masterpiece...I'm still trying to take it all in. The door opened with a beautiful percussive click . Stepping inside is like climbing into a fighter jet, both flexibility and balance play a important roll. Once inside the seat is so contoured that you instantly slide back into race position; the MC12 fits like a glove.

Staring at the massive gauges and holding on to that race spec GT wheel is a feeling of power I just can't yet put into words.

More on the photo shoot later, I have to wait for the medium format film to come back from the lab.
