1957 Ferrari 500 TRC Spider by Scaglietti

Following engineer Aurelio Lampredi’s departure from Ferrari in 1955, a new engineering team was formed for 1956. These highly skilled men soon came up with a new 2-liter sports racing car: the 500 TR. This was the first Ferrari designated with the now-legendary name “Testa Rossa.” The 4-cylinder-engined Type 500 TR was introduced in 1956 and was the successor to the 500 Mondial. Seventeen examples were built, and they became favorite sports racers for privateers the world over.

1953 Ferrari 212 Inter Coupe

There will be a rallying cry to keep it original, but unfortunately it just isn’t nice enough to display or use the way it is

Produced between 1951 and 1953, Ferrari’s 212 series carried the latest evolution of the formidable Colombo V12 engine. It was immediately successful in competition, winning both the Tour of Sicily and the Coppa Inter Europa, but the most important victory was surely the rugged 1951 Carrera Panamericana where the Ferraris delivered an amazing one-two finish!

1952 Ferrari 340 Mexico Coupe

Its impeccable provenance following La Carrera and its impressive ownership chain makes it a plum piece for a collector
who appreciates quality over flash

This Ferrari, 0224AT, has had a busy and well-documented life. Assembled in September 1952, it was test-driven just one month later. Official photos were taken, with temporary Italian license plates BO 16722. It was then sold to Franco Cornacchia’s Scuderia Guastalla in Milan and leased to Santiago Read More

1972 Ferrari Dino 246 GT Berlinetta

Ferrari had resolved to create a younger brand using the support of Fiat, the innovative defining style of Pininfarina, and a new light alloy engine used in a rear mid-engine configuration. The resulting Dino was described by the Commendatore as “almost a Ferrari.” That slap denied it the name which posterity restored to it.

The Dino was born in late 1969 following a long gestation. It started with a study prototype designed by Pininfarina in 1965, Read More

1949 Ferrari 166 MM Barchetta

The car had been undergoing Classiche certification, but the process was not complete at the time of the auction

The Ferrari 166 MM is the definitive 1950s sports car configuration, with its smooth envelope body, long flowing hood and short tail. Named for the Mille Miglia race, it was created by Carrozzeria Touring in Milan, and compared to the 125S, from which it was developed, the Barchetta (“little boat”) is a masterpiece of simple style.

1966 Ferrari 365 California

Ferrari’s 365 California was, in so many ways, the culmination of Ferrari’s collaboration between sports car racing and customer road cars. Only 14 examples of the 365 California were built. They are almost invisible among the (relatively) boxcar loads of 275 GTBs and 365 GTB/4 Daytonas that Ferrari, along with Pininfarina and Scaglietti, turned out about the same time.

The 365 California was a hybrid made possible by the extraordinarily flexible combinations of the chassis, engines and drivetrains available Read More

1972 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona Shooting Brake

While the car’s presence is an asset to any event, it is not a factory-authorized build, which makes it ineligible for judging at many shows

Introduced in 1968 with production beginning in 1969, the 365 GTB/4 Daytona was Ferrari’s response to an evolving market and changing regulations in the United States. Compared to Ferrari’s earlier cars, the 365 GTB/4 was bigger, both in bulk and in power, more luxuriously equipped and was wrapped in a Pininfarina-designed, Scaglietti-built body that was Read More

1951 Ferrari 340 America Spyder

SCM’s Thor Thorson once reported that one 340 owner refused to take his car on a vintage rally, as driving it was just too awful

Some of the most fascinating Ferrari automobiles originate from the earliest years of the company, a time when Enzo Ferrari was still in the process of developing a recognizable identity for his cars. While his first sports cars generally featured small displacement V12s and minimal bodies, it was becoming clear Read More

2007 Ferrari FXX Evoluzione

The FXX is on the edge of being too complicated to run without professional support, so what’s in the future?

The Enzo project charged Ferrari’s engineers to create a driving experience and interface inextricably connected to the Formula One cars. They accomplished the task by fitting the Enzo with a 660-hp, 6,262-cc, V12 engine with Bosch Motronic integrated digital electronic fuel injection, a six-speed paddle-shift transmission, carbon ceramic brakes, and a shriek that can be Read More

1977 Ferrari Dino 308 GT4

Despite what the haters, including our own Publisher Martin, have said, the Dino 308 GT4 is a wonderful example of 1970s angular styling

The 308 GT4 was presented the 1973 Paris Motor Show, first as a Dino then, in 1976, as a Ferrari. Some 2,826 cars were made to Ferrari’s specifications (four seats and a rear central engine) from 1973-80. The bodywork was by Bertone, even though Ferrari’s coachbuilding had been carried out by Pininfarina Read More
