Enjoy a Ferrari Drive in Gold Coast, Chicago

Those who enjoy the finer things in life will appreciate a drive in a Ferrari along Chicago’s Gold Coast. A world-class city on one side and picturesque Lake Michigan on the other: what could be better as you cruise along Lake Shore Drive in a stunning example of Italian engineering?


 
 

Why Drive Your Ferrari in Gold Coast?

Gold Coast is a historic Chicago neighborhood bounded on the east by Lake Shore Drive and beautiful Lake Michigan. As a neighborhood, Gold Coast rose from the ashes of the Great Chicago Fire, and has since become one of the city’s most iconic neighborhoods. Filled with mansions, high rises, and plenty of historic architecture, the area offers plenty to see along its picture-perfect streets, and it’s all made that much better when you’re observing from the seat of a world-class supercar. Of course, the indisputable highlight of driving a Ferrari along the Gold Coast is the stunning view from Lake Shore Drive.

Lake Michigan

Gold Coast ends where Lake Michigan begins, and Lake Shore Drive seems like it was built to offer a taste of the finer views the city has to offer from a world-class sports car — and so much better if you can feel the wind in your hair from a convertible like the Ferrari Portofino.

If you drive south to north along Lake Shore Drive, you’ll be closer to the lake and you’ll be able to experience the grandeur of it and the city in the best way possible: with a clear view of both. You can take in much of the city this way, winding your way by through Gold Coast, by Lincoln Park, Boystown, and Uptown, and finally into Edgewater, at which point you can turn toward Ravenswood or simply turn around and enjoy the coastal ride from the other direction.
