Nick Mason – Not your average Rock Star
Apart from being the drummer in one of the most successful bands of all time (Pink Floyd), Nick Mason has another great passion he likes to drive cars. In reality the cars he drives are not the sort you and me pop down the shops in.
Among his collection Nick personally owns a Ferrari 250 GTO, one of just 39 that were made. It is worth somewhere in the region of £16-20 million pounds. He has driven in the Le Mans 24hr race and appears regularly on Motoring programmes, including Top Gear (who borrowed one of his other Ferrari’s, the pain old Enzo to review in a show).
Passion for Speed
Written by Nick Mason and Mark Hales, Passion for Speed was first published in 1998 and this version is the second update to the original. As well as Nick’s stories, memories and adventures while driving these amazing cars, it features stunning photographs of his private collection, including all of Nicks Ferrari’s, an Alfa Romeo TZ, Gilles Villeneuve’s F1 car (above) and his Porsche 962.
