"History of the Automoble: In 1989 Yngwie was in the process of recording the 'Eclipse' album when he saw this Ferrari in the showroom of Prestige Imports in North Miami Beach, Florida. This dealership is a seller of only the best high-end, blue-chip automobiles.With only 23,000 miles on the clock Yngwie had to have it, so he walked in, paid cash and drove it out.
