1953 Ferrari 625 TF Barchetta

The designation Ferrari 625 usually conjures up visions of the four-cylinder 2 1/2-liter Grand Prix car designed in 1951, the number 625 indicating the capacity of one cylinder. The victorious 12-cylinder Formula 1 and Formula 2 cars had by then begun to lose their competitive edge and Lampredi had joined […]

1966 Ferrari 275 GTS

By 1964, the Ferrari production car line had been divided into four modes: 500 Superfast, 330 GT 2+2, 275 GTB and the 275 GTS, a Spyder built atop the GTB chassis but with an entirely different body design by Pininfarina. Similar in appearance to the 330 GT 2+2 coupe, the […]

1991 Ferrari F40

The F40 needs no introduction. It is the quintessential “ultracar,” developed by Ferrari to blast their competitors out of the limelight. In 1984 Ferrari had launched their spectacular 288 GTO, a limited production car which was to wrest the title of World’s Fastest Production Car away from Lamborghini, and which […]

1991 Ferrari F40

Introduced in Europe in 1987, Ferrari’s newest supercar was a shock to the senses. An engineering tour-de-force, the F40 combined raw-edged radical styling with state-of-the-art engine, body and chassis design. Driving one is a visceral experience, hammering the senses with brutal acceleration, go-kart-quick reflexes and a howling exhaust note that […]

1957 Ferrari 625/250 TRC

{vsig}1996-12_1665{/vsig} The new 500 TR (Testa Rossa, red-topped cylinder heads) was introduced in 1956 as a replacement for the previous 500 Mondial and although designed for customers only, a few factory-entered races were undertaken while development work was progressing with the new 250 Testa Rossa. The first three cars were […]

1956 Ferrari Boano 250GT

The 1954 Paris Salon hosted the world premiere of the Ferrari 250 Gran Turismo which was to become one of the most important milestones in the history of Automobili Ferrari. The 250 GT Series was the first Ferrari standardized production touring car, and in its many guises spanned a period […]

1969 Ferrari 365 GT 2+2

Combining the elegant nose of the exclusive 500 Superfast with the more rectangular styling of the one-off 330GTC Speciale show car, the 365 2+2 was much more sophisticated than the four-seater Ferrari coupes that came before it. Under the steel bodywork, as usual from the pen of Pininfarina, was an […]

1978 Ferrari 400

Ferrari took some time to come into the four-seat market although Aston Marin, de Tomaso, Lamborghini and Maserati had established that there was a niche for such a car. When Ferrari did decide to make a real four-seat car rather than the two-people-plus-a-mall-dog approach of the 250 GTE and 330 […]
