The Ferrari Panamerican 20,000 road challenge will stop at Shell stations across the United States to refuel with Shell V-Power as it makes its way from Brazil to New York City in two all-new Ferrari 599 GTB Fioranos. The tour will cover 20,000 miles in just 85 days, including a stop in Los Angeles where local car lovers can get a glimpse of Ferrari’s most technologically advanced road car as both Ferraris refuel for the next leg of the adventure.

In addition to this first look, auto enthusiasts can hear first-hand accounts of the journey’s challenges and high points from the Ferrari team members and the Shell Technical Specialist who have been on the tour since it left Brazil. Shell customers will be treated to gifts and refreshments while they check out the new supercars and interact with the team.

Shell is extending its support of Ferrari by committing to back a new event - Panamerican 20,000. This uniquely ambitious test of the all-new Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano starts in Brazil in August and stretches much of the length of the Americas. The three-month marathon, which concludes in New York in November, will be a very visible demonstration of the close partnership between Shell and Ferrari.

"Shell will be behind Ferrari 100 per cent for the entire route of the Panamerican 20,000 with important technical support and a suite of performance fuel and lubricant products," said Raoul Pinnell, Chairman of Shell Brands International AG. "The spirit of our technical partnership is that we’re together for the long run, and that’s embodied by this daring demonstration spanning more than 20,000 miles in the latest Ferrari Gran Turismo product, the exciting 599 GTB Fiorano."
