    If you think cars can be art, there's a new "gallery" for you to check out: Ferrari of San Diego held a grand opening party in their new 6,500 foot showroom in the heart of La Jolla on Wednesday night.  

    The new location replaces one across the street where the prancing horse shared floor space with its Italian cousin, Maserati. Now there's more room, more purpose and plenty for Ferrari lovers and selected gawkers to look at. 
     
    There was a classic 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB four cam in red. There were also new models, if you're willing to write a big check and drive it home to show the neighbors.
     
    Want to hit La Jolla's shops in a little convertible? Check out the black Ferrari California roadster. You'll look great, but there's not a lot of room for larger purchases.  If you are looking for a track ready car, check out the F430 Scuderia Spider M16 in flat graphite. It's one of only 499 made, and it's fast -- really fast. 
     
    Or maybe you're a young family with kids, always showing up late to dance or soccer practice. Take them in the silver Ferrari 612 Scaglietti. It seats four (as long as the back-seaters are short) and sports a big V-12 engine, does 0 to 60 in four seconds and has a top speed of 199 mph if you're 5-year-old's game is in ... uh, Munich.
     
    The showroom is exactly what you would expect from Ferrari: White floors with creamy white and red leather chairs, big flat-screen TVs showing off Formula 1 heroics and, of course, the cars.
