Ferrari Panamerican Starts This Week

It's almost time for some of the world's motoring journalists to take a heavily managed but nonetheless challenging run up the Panamerican Highway, in something Ferrari likes to call the Panamerican 20,000. In two days, journos — "representing the most important publications from all over the world" (says you Ferrari!) — will embark in two Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano models from somewhere the southern hemisphere (Brazil, actually) on an 84-day, tag-team journey that will take them through the Andes mountains, the Dari n Gap (pack your M16s and bug spray, guys) and the messy track through Central America. Then, it's over the border and across the US to Nueva York — 16 countries in all. Oh wait — check out the map after the jump. Looks like the Dari n Gap — a bit of trail between Colombia and Panama that only a CIA wet team could love — is off the agenda. Pussies!
