Now doesn’t that catcher your eye. This was a small inset on the cover of the new Golf Magazine and it sure caught my eye. It says it is built for speed and you can test drive this driver. I found the article on page 94 in a section called The Shop the best new gear. I must say the picture is striking as it is brilliant red including the shaft. It makes it look deadly with the black face and red insets as the price of $2,000.00 that’s deadly.
This new driver is made by Cobra and called the Ferrari with a caption that says “Rev your engines, fellas – this driver is built for top speeds”. The article is written by Dave Allen and starts by saying Ferrari race cars are known to reach speeds in excess of 200 miles per hour. Now this Ferrari Golf club driver was co-developed by Ferrari engineers with focus on speed.
The collaboration of Cobra and Ferrari the Italian sports car manufacturer brings this out of this world driver. They say this driver will generate 0.5 to 1.5 percent more club head speed plus 1-3 mph faster ball speed than any other driver. It’s the aerodynamics plus assorted metals and premium graphite shaft. With all this high tech engineering of the club head face it is suppose to have less drag during your swing. It has full use of titanium with carbon fibers it makes a stream line shape of the driver.
In this article in Golf Magazine it mentions the Ferrari Golf Collection web site so I checked out this web site. They show this club and all the specs even down to the black leather grips with red stiching On this web site you also will find the Ferrari golf accessories and clothing and I loved the look of the leather golf bag with shoe bag and other golf items. Of course there was no price list and with Ferrari is you have to ask you can’t afford them anyway. They did look elegant and Ian Poulter the golf professional was used in these advertisements. It is worth the effort to check out this web site.
I checked Authorized Dealers and all I found was Canada, Korea, Norway, Sweden and United Kingdom, but none in America. I am sure that will change after the information put out in this article by Golf Magazine and those who check out the Ferrari golf collection web site. I am sure there will be many responses to want to try out this aerodynamic fire red Ferrari driver as it seems new ideas in golf equipment never stops. It drew my attention as red is my favorite color and I loved the red golf bag it would look good on my black golf cart.
