Initially conceived as a gran turisimo, Ferrari’s 250 soon diverged into two paths, the GT coupes and cabriolets and the lightweight competition berlinettas. The berlinettas designed by Pininfarina and built in small numbers by Scaglietti were the ultimate dual-purpose cars, competitive at Read More

Playing with the F40 in our 70-mph society is like going deer hunting with a rocket launcher

Introduced in 1988 to celebrate Enzo Ferrari’s 40 years as a carmaker, the F40 was the last car with a design personally approved by the great man himself.

Ferrari’s family of immensely successful V8 road cars began in 1973 with the 308 GT4.

By placing the front seats well forward, Bertone made room for two children or one sideways-seated adult Read More

Ferrari introduced the 275 GTS at the October 1964 Paris show alongside its sibling, the 275 GTB. The two shared the same chassis and driveline, although the GTS engine was more mildly tuned to give 20 horsepower less than the berlinetta at 600 fewer revolutions. These were Ferrari’s first production cars with Read More

1952 Ferrari 212 Inter Berlinetta

Once described in a magazine as the world’s most beautiful Ferrari, the 212 was somewhat unfairly known in my neck of the woods as the world’s ugliest

Whatever the chosen medium, artists’ earliest works are always among their most desired and sought after. Artist-in-metal Enzo Ferrari is a case in point, all the more so because his first cars were bespoke, and differences between race winners and those built for Read More

1966 Ferrari 275 GTB/C

This immensely desirable and highly usable Ferrari 275 GTB/C is the third of only 12 such Berlinetta Competizione models produced by the world-famous Maranello factory, and is absolutely not to be confused with the normal, standard production GTB models.

The 275 GTB/C Read More

The high-performance, luxury gran tursimo was a new automotive idiom in the prosperous years following World War II. Powerful, limited-production GT’s supplanted the great cars from Bentley, Rolls-Royce, Mercedes-Benz, and the grandes routieres of France, which had ruled European highways in the 1930s. GTs became the cars of choice for royalty, celebrities and Read More
