In a new interview, Gino D’Acampo admits that he is the proud owner of several Italian cars, because of his heritage, but that he doesn’t drive them much. "I drive... I own a couple of Ferraris, like many Italians, as well as a Porsche, a big Jeep and Harley Davidson,” he told OK! Magazine. He continued: "I rarely drive, however, because I enjoy a drink. I employ a driver instead." Which is one of the most responsible things he can do.
He owns a Ferrari 360 and a Ferrari 458 Italia, which has been discontinued. In the past, he called a Fiat 500C “One of my favourite cars I owned.....a proper Italian toy.”
His biggest purchase, though, was "a high-tech military boat, made to my specification, which cost more than a £1 million ($1.3 million).” He added: "It was made by an Italian company called Novamarine which makes powerful boats for the American marines.”
One of his sons, Luciano, revealed he also owns a Ferrari 458, shown in the gallery. In a post from 2019, which you can see below, the Chef shared a picture of how he was giving driving lessons to his son on a Ferrari.
We’re not all that lucky to learn how to drive in the Italian supercar, but given his father’s collection, it would have been a pity for Luciano to miss that experience.
