He played Asterix in the films inspired by the famous “Asterix and Obelix” cartoons and he’s gained huge acclaim for his roles Les Misérables and Napoléon. But now actor Christian Clavier takes a break from the set and explores the world of Ferrari
Estimated reading time: 1 minute
Christian Clavier knows a thing or two about cars because he’s a regular guest on the popular French TV car show M6 Turbo. So it was only natural that he’d eventually visit the Ferrari campus and meet the world’s most beautiful cars – cars he freely admits he’s in love with – face-to-face.
The first meeting was pretty special as the actor got to drive a new technologically advanced California sporting the Handling Speciale package.
Next he took a stroll through factory and the Ferrari Classiche and Corse Clienti divisions to drink in the glory of the Prancing Horse’s history through its historic cars.
After this dip into the past, Clavier was brought right back to the present as he slid behind the wheel of the FF, our aggressive and quite extraordinary four-wheel Grand Tourer.
Clavier’s tour of the Maranello complex concluded with a look at the future in the form of a close encounter with the newly-minted F12berlinetta.
It was a very intense day after which the actor set off back to France with a whole trunk load of memories from his Italian cousins.
