"I'll take it out at 2.30 in the morning on the freeway and I'll blast on the motorway and no police catch me and no cameras because I wrap my number plates with cling film.
"It's a great thing for a chef when they get your own Ferrari, just wrap it with cling film," the dad of four said.
"It won't photograph, it reflects. Brilliant! It's a great tip. I'm trying to help you
"So get rolls of cling film when you get your Ferrari and wrap the front so you won't get caught speeding."
The speed limit on most Los Angeles freeways is 65mph.
Ramsay's Ferrari embark California T can do almost 200mph. But the gobby chef, who has eight Ferraris at home in Britain plus his soft-top in the States, claims he is embarrassed driving to work in the PS160,000 Italian supercar during the day.

"It's just something that I absolutely love, the perfection of it. Because everything that I see on that steering wheel, on that wheel, on that leather, I put on the plate."
Ramsay, who has previously admitted having cosmetic procedures, looked more puffyfaced than usual when he opened the Las Vegas restaurant - named Hell's Kitchen after his hit TV series.
