In 1947, Ferrari made history with its first Formula 1 victory, roughly seven years after they made their very first car. It was a humble beginning for a small Italian car manufacturer that would eventually grow into a racing behemoth with iconic cars and more F1 victories than any competitor in its’ class. The successive moments that have immortalized this company have been self-described by Ferrari as a journey “made of passion, craftsmanship and innovation”.
Just over 70 years since their first victory, C&T Electric has recently completed a Ferrari-centric Connecticut Show Garage that can house nearly a dozen of these legendary vehicles. With “passion, craftsmanship, and innovation” in mind, there is only one lighting control system that shares those same values and can achieve an analogous level of performance.
As you walk through the halls of this Connecticut residence, you notice three large frosted windows, with an inconspicuous neutral switch that almost blends into the wall. Pressing this unassuming button does more than your typical light switch. As the tint on the Magic Glass changes from frosted to clear, it reveals a small modern car museum. Vintage neon race signs aglow, adorning the logos of Ferrari, Lamborghini and Maserati. Accent lighting around the perimeter illuminates custom racing artwork that wraps the walls while high performance LED track lights that are hidden within Ferrari red clouds fade on, illuminating a jaw dropping collection of racing cars. Ferraris, Maserati’s, Porsches and a Pagani decorate the space and before your drool has a chance to hit the floor, a Ferrari F1 racing car on the far wall appears and is backlit with color changing LED ribbon lighting.
