This is what we call making an entrance. Classic & Sports Car Magazine contributor Alain de Cadenet recently took to the Mille Miglia North America in one very beautiful 1957 Ferrari 250 GT. The car literally swept the event's presenters off their feet at the ceremonial start when de Cadenet came across the line just a little too quickly. The inertia of the stopping Ferrari pulled the stage floor along for the ride, effectively yanking the rug out from under the five people on stage. No one was harmed in the little fiasco, but the event makes for a pretty hilarious clip.

Hit the jump to check out two videos of the Ferrari bowling everyone over as well as a brief interview with de Cadenet after the Mille Miglia North America came to a close.

        My favorite episode has to be the Ferrari one. The part where he drives the 333SP prototype at full song is just incredible.

        Yeah, that was a good series. Wasn't that on Speed, before they became so NA$CAR-centric?

          Which they aren't "NASCAR-centric". I'm willing to bet if you turn it to Speed right now, you'll see a program called Speed Test Drive with the Cadillac CTS-V. NASCAR maybe only has an hour or 2 of coverage a day on Speed. By the way, why do you keep using the dollar sign in place of the S?

        Watching that series, I was so jealous of him for being able to drive all of those cars. Then again, nobody in their right mind would let ME drive those masterpieces.
