September 2018 Golf Cart of the Month
Enzo Ferrari found his place in history by designing and building some of the fastest and most expensive vehicles on earth. The distinctive horse logo is known throughout the world, and these unmatched autos are indicative of people who highly value individualism, reject conformity and want to bring that attitude to the road. Now, Excessive Carts of Dallas, Texas has brought this legacy of excitement and performance to golf fairways.
This incredible heritage is reflected in the cart, which is painted Ferrari Red and announces itself with a genuine logo on the carbon fiber high-back seats and an authentic Ferrari emblem on its front hood, which itself sells for a mere $280. Even the steering wheel adds authenticity because it is the same Momo design used in the Ferrari race cars. And, like a street-ready Ferrari, this cart can be personalized with numerous options and upgrades of the buyer’s choice that assures no two Ferrari carts will be the same. The price for one of these beauties runs around $24,000, but that can include numerous custom features.
The genesis of this special vehicle is a gentleman who wanted a golf cart to reflect the Ferrari race car he already owns. The quality simply had to be exceptional.
This level of quality does not come easily. Owner and United States Air Force veteran, Ron Wallach, reports that the cart – which is built on a Club Car Precedent chassis – involves over 70 hours of detailed labor, including over 40 hours devoted to painting and powder coating all the parts to match genuine Ferrari red. From the struts to the yellow brake calipers, this cart shows true craftsmanship. All of this activity begins with stripping a basic cart down to a bare frame. Then piece by piece everything comes together, including the hand soldering of every electrical connection to enhance performance and reliability. Every element is diligently checked during the process.
You can add a roof mounted air conditioner, a custom tinted flip windshield and a dynamic sound system with Pandora, iPhone and Android compatibility that blasts your favorite tunes through two 6.5” Kicker Speakers painted (you guessed it) Ferrari Red. Round out the package with LED head and taillights, a brush guard and Ferrari red street glow lighting under the roof and the undercarriage. There is no way this masterpiece is going unnoticed. And, did I mention, this Ferrari has a top speed of 43 miles per hour, which on a fairway will feel like you are at Le Mans.
Other notable elements include a Marine antenna, a rear seating system complete with cup holders, a hidden integrated cooler and an incredible suspension that can handle anything this baby can put out. In addition, Excessive Carts owns its own transportation vehicle so shipping through the United States and to international connections is as flawless and careful as the build itself.
Having a cart like this is not for everyone, but for the right person it will make every round unforgettable and will have everybody you play with hit you with a barrage of questions and no small amount of admiration. In fact, rather than speed up your game, the added attention may actually slow the process…in a very enjoyable way.
A cart will never make your drive go farther or straighter, but your whole outlook about playing golf will be more confident when you are behind the wheel. So, go ahead and be “excessive”. Who cares if you can’t wipe that smile off your face.
