Following a number of conversion attempts by various independent shops, Ferrari’s rationale for not building an open TR became obvious: Chopping the roof created serious spatial and structural challenges
The Testarossa was designed by Ferrari specifically for the U.S. market’s strict safety and emissions rules. Its signature elements were a twelve-cylinder engine, arrayed in Boxer fashion, and a remarkable new body by Pininfarina, a clear departure from earlier designs for Ferrari coupes. Read More
Ferrari’s 250 GT reached a level of true dual-purpose perfection with the Short Wheelbase Berlinetta. It coalesced three parallel and mutually supporting paths of Ferrari development. Ferrari’s continuing focus upon both Grand Prix and endurance sports car racing emphasized power and reliability. Production of high quality gran tursimo automobiles delivered comfort and exclusivity to demanding clientele. And Pininfarina had refined a distinctive Ferrari design that visually captured and expressed the marque’s attributes.
Complementing the 250 GT SWB’s landmark design were Read More
The 250 engine paved the way for a large family of cars that helped Ferrari expand their limited output into series-produced sports cars. The new range was based on the 3-liter V12 engine designed by Gioacchino Colombo. The engine was powerful, smooth and adaptable to both touring and racing. The trend continued with the arrival of the Cabriolet 250 GT PF in 1957 — the last two letters standing for Pinin Farina (then still written as two words), who Read More
Breathtaking is the only word to describe the 360, introduced in 1999. From its sculpted looks, crafted over a superbly fabricated aluminum chassis, the Modena exudes Ferrari at its best
The line of Ferrari Berlinettas has been a long and distinguished one. From the first 166 Barchetta through the 195, 212, and then the highly collectible 250 GTs of the 1960s, the cars were always characterized by being for two people only, Read More
The catalog description went into great detail about it being a fuel-injected car, but it was hard to mistake the four Webers
The mid-engined Lamborghini Miura brought Formula One chassis design to the street in the mid-1960s. Ferrari’s response was the 365 GTB/4 Berlinetta Boxer, unveiled at the 1971 Turin Auto Show. The first road-going Ferrari not to have a V-configured engine, the Boxer had a four-cam, 4.4-liter flat-12 derived from Ferrari’s Read More
This unique GTS/4 Daytona Spyder is that most mythical of beasts, a genuine one-owner-from-new Daytona Spyder. We know of just one other, a North American-specification model resident in the U.S.
Ferrari sold just 121 Daytona Spyders. Left-hand drive chassis number 15845-the car offered here-is one of just 25 built to European specification (seven of which were right-hand drive). This car is one of two sold to Germany. It was delivered finished in classic Rosso Chiaro featuring original black leather Read More
Back when they were under $10k, we didn’t concern ourselves about cosmetic stuff
This “family Ferrari” was repainted in its original silver-blue from bare metal in 1997. There is new black leather on front seats, the brake system has been overhauled, and new rear self-leveling shocks fitted. A new clutch has been installed, along with fresh belts, hoses and motor mounts. The engine has never been opened and the carburetors are original. Read More
The press loved the car, the people loved the car and customers had to get on a waiting list to buy it
This is truly a beauty, in iconic Ferrari red with camel leather interior and matching boot, and a black automatic convertible top. The legendary engine is a 3.5-liter V8 producing 375 horsepower, with 11:1 compression ratio, twin overhead camshafts per cylinder bank and five valves per cylinder. A CD changer Read More
After being imported from California in 1968, some mechanical work was done to this car and it was repainted. The present vendor purchased it in 1995 with 54,414 miles, and in 1998 spent $58,000 on the engine, chassis and a retrim of the interior. $34,500 was for rebuilding the engine, including replacement of both heads and rebuild to “un-leaded” specifications with all new valves, etc., as well as a re-bore and 12 new oversized pistons. Approximately $3,000 each was Read More
From the onset, the intention of the 400 had been to challenge the finest luxury saloons available. It was anticipated that a large demand would come from the lucrative American market, though sadly the cost involved in meeting the stringent US regulations denied this option.
Introduced in 1976 at the Paris salon, it was available with either a five-speed manual gearbox or automatic three-speed transmission, sourced from General Motors. This option was targeted at those customers who wanted Read More
