Car And Driver Feature: McLaren 650S + WAZE

If you’re familiar with my previous Bachman Ferrari Collection feature, you know that I don’t get to see many exotic cars where I live in South Carolina. So when Car And Driver asked if I could sit shotgun in a bright orange McLaren 650S blasting across the Florida everglades, I fried a few brain fuses.

The Bachman Ferrari Collection

Nestled in the heart of the Appalachian mountain chain resides Phil Bachman. He is a man that lives in the South, where trucks are regarded as luxury items, and a weekend of going muddin’ is to many equivalent to the Concours d’Elegance. To say the least, if you’re a common person living in the charming South, you are lucky to see a dozen Ferraris in your lifetime. Despite the unicorn-like rarity of a Ferrari in his region, that didn’t stop him from filling his garage with upwards of 40 immaculate archival offsprings from Maranello. How could this be in Tennessee!? This is on the same possibility scale of stumbling upon Ross Brawn and Flavio Briatore flinging a perfect 300 at the local hole-in-the-wall bowling alley.
