Aftermarket reaches Maranello

Published:  10 October, 2011

"We've arrived in Maranello following a drive though Mont Blanc.

No major problems from us yet - though you don't realise how far 1,000 miles is until you try to drive it.

The lead car, a 1999 Volvo S80 driven by James Baggot of Car Dealer Magazine - was crippled by alternator failure just ten miles outside Calais!

Awful weather in France, lovely weather in Italy.

More for me soon."<
