Ferrari California T Handling Speciale Delivers “Full Throttle Breakfast” To Lord March At Goodwood
Ferrari was pleased to be asked by Lord March to deliver a “Full Throttle Breakfast” during his preparations for this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, and the thrilling adventure can now be seen on the website here:

The latest Ferrari California T Handling Speciale was the ideal car to deliver such a breakfast, using produce sourced from across the Goodwood Estate: with its revised damper settings and quicker steering response to ensure Lord March’s fried eggs remained perfectly intact and that not a drop of coffee was spilled, and its sharper throttle response and quicker gearshifts which ensured that his breakfast was still piping hot when delivered to the table.

While the bacon and eggs from the Goodwood Farm were cooking down at the Goodwood Cafe, the California T Handling Speciale made a flying visit to the Goodwood Racecourse to collect a copy of the Racing Post, before returning to the Cafe to collect Lord March’s breakfast and delivering it to the steps of Goodwood House. And, although the car had been making donuts all over the Estate, these were not of the kind which could be served at the breakfast table.

The Ferrari California T Handling Speciale is just one of several new Ferrari cars which will be showcased at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this year. The full-line up of Ferrari cars in the Michelin Supercar Paddock is as follows :
