Fifty years of racing, 50 years of winning, 50 years of hard work.” With these words, Luca di Montezemolo introduced the F50 on March 6, 1995, at the Auto Museum in Geneva, Switzerland, in conjunction with the city’s 63rd annual auto show. Read More

1972 Ferrari 246 GTS Dino

In May 2003, I wrote that $86,000 was “all the money” for an equivalent car; boy, was I wrong. $153,000 for this example is not over the top

As the first series-produced, mid-engined Ferraris, the early Dino V6s are landmark cars, and the line they founded would prove to be an immense commercial success for Maranello. The original 2.0-liter Dino 206 was replaced in 1969 by a longer-wheelbase 2.4-liter version, the 246 Read More

It can be argued that the 410 Superamerica Series III was the high point of the entire line of luxury high-performance Ferraris. In his privately published book, Series III 410 America, Ferrari 410 s/n 1355SA owner Dyke Ridgley wrote, “Here was a car of such presence and power Read More

1996 Ferrari 456 GT Coupe

I’ve often told people trying to squeak into a Ferrari that if they can’t afford the best example, they really can’t afford an edgy one

Not since the 412’s demise in 1989 had Ferrari offered a 2+2, and when the 456 GT debuted at the Paris Salon in October 1992, it was obvious that the long-awaited newcomer eclipsed all Maranello’s previous four-seat Grand Tourers.

Although new from stem to stern, the Read More

1951 Ferrari 340 America Coupe

“Prime Motoring Fool” Bob Sutherland took a savage pleasure in driving anything, but said his 340 Mexico was just too awful

Intended primarily as a competition car for wealthy privateers, the 340 was directed specifically at a new and increasingly profitable market-the United States. Aptly named “America,” the 340 became the first of many subsequent sports racing Ferraris built to meet the demands of the American market, where it proved Read More

Machiavelli was Italian. So were Mussolini and Enzo Ferrari (not that I’m comparing them). And although he isn’t, Scuderia Ferrari’s director Jean Todt has probably lived there long enough to qualify. I grew up in Italy, and sometimes even I find it hard to decipher Italian political and business Read More

1967 Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 Series II

There was a time when 330 2+2s were the entry-level Ferrari. Now they are too expensive to be donor cars or parts cars

{vsig}2008-7_2197{/vsig}

Reporters anxiously awaited the unveiling of the new Formula One car at the annual Ferrari press conference in 1964, but Enzo had a surprise up his sleeve. It was here that he first introduced with great fanfare the commuter’s Ferrari-a car that could stand the daily stop-and-go Read More

1988 Ferrari Testarossa

The Testarossa was a significant advance for Ferrari. Designed for series production, this flat-12 supercar continued Ferrari’s 12-cylinder tradition in a modern, mid-engined configuration that could be traced directly to the 512 and 312 sports prototypes and Ferrari’s years of Formula One experience.

This 1988 Ferrari Testarossa is a U.S.-delivery example equipped with stereo sound system and air conditioning. Its odometer shows just 37,227 miles, a reading that appears to be appropriate to its condition. It is complete with its Read More
