Hi all,

I am pretty sure that instrumental Hudson's Dream, B-side from Auberge single should be included into this list.

I assume in this title Chris refers to his Ferrari and parcticularly to Nigel Hudson, sports car tuning specialist, who provided upgrade for Chris's Ferrari 512 Boxer Berlinetta, which is now on sale: http://www.collectioncar.com/detailed.p ... egory_id=1

Here is the lot descricption, when you read this, it is no longer suprprise the car is called Hudson's Dream by Chris:

"1980 Ferrari Boxer 512 BB LM Conversion. Rosso Chiaro with black hide. Black carpets. 5 litre 12 cylinder 465 bhp engine upgrade. Purchased by musician Chris Rea from Nigel Mansell Sports Cars of Dorset. Nigel Hudson undertook the upgrade of the car to the current specification. Featured in ‘Ferrari Legends’ book. 1 of 3 built. With its extensive history (the sun visors are signed by both Chris Rea and Nigel Mansell) this is a unique Ferrari and not to be missed."

I assume Chris purchased it ca. 1990, as the car is mentioned in this arcticle from April 1991:

BTW, I doubt Chris's ever owned a Ferrari 400i auto, as it is written down here:

It is so not his type of a sports car... Look:

I will soon post more pictures of different sports cars owned and driven by Chris.
