They along with the Company officially launched the FF All-Hyper Global Racetrack Conqueror Plan at Pebble Beach, along with the recently announced second batch of spire users and Developer Co-Creation Officer Justin Bell.
Derek Bell MBE has enjoyed one of the most successful, diverse and wide-ranging racing careers of any international racing drivers which spans over 40 years. Bell is best-known as the consummate endurance sports car driver who won the Le Mans 24 Hours five times, the Daytona 24 Hours three times and the World Sports Car Champion twice! He is considered to be the greatest British racing driver ever to compete in endurance racing. His sports car racing career spans the Ferrari 512 and Porsche 917, the Gulf-Mirage era, Renault’s turbo effort at Le Mans, the Porsche 936, Porsche 956 and 962, the Kremer Porsche K8, the Ferrari 333 SP, and the McLaren F1. The latter earned him yet another Le Mans podium alongside his son Justin Bell in 1995 – a very proud moment for the father and son.
Kelvin Sherman, a dynamic celebrity partner, boasts an impressive track record collaborating with a roster of A-list notables including Justin Bieber, Kendall Jenner, Kanye West, Trippie Red, Lil Durk and many more. Co-founding Apollo Management Group has been a pivotal achievement, notably marked by the seamless integration of the FF 91 2.0 Futurist Alliance into the project alongside superstar Travis Scott. With a strong presence spanning from Miami, NYC, and Los Angeles, Apollo has strategically positioned itself to cater to FF’s target markets, helping to solidify the foundation for expansive growth.
Renowned for his extensive connections within show business, Kelvin possesses a distinct knack for fostering collaborations. His commitment to bridging FF with the upper echelon and his dedication to establishing FF partners for our co-creation program is propelling our influence to new heights.
Kelvin’s daily journey will unfold behind the wheel of the FF 91, while he embodies the epitome of luxury and innovation. As he navigates through a calendar brimming with exclusive events that unite celebrities and culture, he will orchestrate captivating introductions and will showcase FF 91 2.0 vehicle’s allure to discerning luxury car enthusiasts.
