Rocker, Sammy "The Red Rocker" Hagar has an impressive car collection that includes not one, not two, but six Ferrari's. So how do you top a collection of multiple Ferrari's? By adding another one and not just any old Ferrari but one of the most sought after super cars today -- the Ferrari LaFerrari. Sammy's collection, which he started back in the early 70's also includes over a dozen classic cars, including a Lotus, several vintage Ford Roadsters, and an Aston Martin so this LaFerrari will be in good hands.

In a recent interview with Yahoo, Sammy described his need for speed. “I couldn’t be more excited, and I’m buying it to drive it, I suspect I might even have to take some more driving courses to really be able to pilot this baby with confidence. From everything I’ve read about the LaFerrari, you need to recalibrate your brain when you get inside.” said Hagar.
Hagar will be flying to Ferrari's factory headquarters in Italy so that he can be fitted for the cars custom drivers seat. While there, he'll also pick out the cars exterior paint and interior finishes.
It's nice to know that once Hagar takes delivery of the car he'll actually be putting the car to the test and getting it out on the road unlike some celebrities that would buy it just to buy it but not know how to handle it.

One of our readers came across this video called "A Day in the Life of Lebron James" and during the video it shows Lebron running from spot to spot in his red Ferrari 458 Spider. Most of the video shows him working out since it was shot during the season and just before playoffs but there are some great shots of him driving the car too so check it out.
Also, after seeing this, can we just say that we wish we could spend a day in the life of Lebron James...

I get the feeling the LaFerrari is the supercar you will see every celebrity and athlete in over the next few years. The Veyron will be for the rap artists while the LaFerrari will be for those that truly appreciate the car.
Case and point is long time car enthusiast/collector Jay Kay who special ordered what I would call a skittles-green LaFerrari and recently took delivery! This will go nicely with his black Ferrari Enzo and loads of other automobiles he has in his collection.

Seeing someone sitting on the side of the road because they ran out of gas is a pretty normal occurrence but seeing a professional basketball player run out of gas in a red Ferrari California isn't.
Indiana Pacers forward, Evan Turner found himself sitting on the side of the freeway after his Ferrari California ran out of gas. Luckily his friend, former Ohio State teammate, P.J. Hill came to the rescue with some gas and lucky for us, he documented the embarrassing moment on Instagram.

Chumlee posted a photo of a red Ferrari 458 Italia that he wrecked on Ocean Drive in Miami recently. Before posting the photo he also shared a photo and a video of a McLaren MP4-12C he rented with the caption, "I'm not always in Miami but when I am I wear my @rick_harrison socks and rent fast cars". Maybe it should be more like, Chumlee isn't always in Miami, but when he is, he wrecks fast cars...
At least the McLaren stayed in one piece.
