Also on display will be latest examples of today’s Ferrari range, the F430, F430 Spider and the 612 Scaglietti. Other classic Ferrari models on display include the Ferrari 275 GTB and the 575 Maranello, named after Ferrari home town.

Alongside the cars, there will also be comprehensive displays charting the history of Ferrari and explaining the exceptional technology that has driven Ferrari forward at the cutting edge of both motorsport and road car development.

The Club members are also donating there time, as well as precious cars, to the event to ensure the maximum amount of money car be raised for the Westmead Children’s Hospital.

This year’s display is much larger than ever seen before and the array of cars is exceptional. Darling Harbour is the perfect venue and offers a great day out for the whole family. We are very proud to support The Children’s Hospital at Westmead and invite everyone along to help make the day a great success.”
