Luca di Montezemolo a.k.a. Ferrari CEO was present too at the biggest gathering of Prancing Horse cars ever organized in Greater China.

Over six hundred Ferraris were brought at the Asia World Expo on the island of Lantau and arranged arranged so as to form the characteristic symbol of Hong Kong, the five-petal flower, the Bauhinia Blakeana. According to the carmaker, this pays tribute to long established relationship between Ferrari and the city where East meets West.

Moreover, this event also was the place where Ferrari brought the 458 Speciale, which made its world debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show last month.

The 458 Speciale was unveiled by Marc Gene, Scuderia Ferrari's test driver. Among the 600 cars present were some real gems from the past such as the 195 Inter, the 365 GTC and the Dino, but also modern masterpieces such as the 458 Challenge and the laboratory cars, the 599 XX and FXX Evoluzione.

"I am pleased to be here to celebrate Ferrari's thirty years in Hong Kong, along with so many owners who share our passion and the search for excellence, exclusivity and innovation," said President Montezemolo. "Their contribution to our growth in Greater China has always been a vital element and it will continue to be so in the future." [source: Ferrari]
