1971 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona Competition

{vsig}1996-2_1711{/vsig} When Motor Sport’s governing body announced late in 1967 changes to the Sports Car Regulations limiting engine size to three liters, Enzo Ferrari was so furious that he withdrew from participation in the 1968 Constructors Championship. It was therefore left to privateers such as Luigi Chinetti of New York […]

1959 Ferrari California Spyder LWB

{vsig}1996-1_1713{/vsig} While the exact origins of the 250 GT California Spyder are a little doubtful, there is no doubt that Luigi Chinetti, the American Ferrari importer, played a major role in its creation. He had certainly suggested on more than one occasion that a more sporting, performance-oriented car was needed […]

1966 Ferrari 275 GTB

Perhaps no car better epitomizes classic Ferrari design than the 275 GTB. Penetrative nose, long bonnet, low cabin and a short, neat tail are the ingredients that make for a masterpiece of sports car design. The 275 GTB drew inspiration from the preceding 250 GTO, and along with its timeless […]

1966 Ferrari 275 GTB Coupe

{vsig}1995-12_1717{/vsig} It was the Paris Salon of 1964 that Ferrari chose to launch his new Berlinetta Coupe, the 275 GTB. It was an evolutionary design from the preceding Coupe’s but considerably more sporting than the 250 GT ‘Lusso’ which it replaced. The recent developments of the Competition 275P and 250M […]

Ferrari 250 Le Mans

Le Mans: one of the most evocative names in the history of motor racing, and the one which identifies one of the most charismatic Ferraris ever built, the 250 Le Mans Berlinetta. The early 1960s were a time of great change and development at Maranello. Well into his second decade […]

Ferrari 288 GTO

When Ferrari announced in 1983 that it was to build a modern day GTO it sent the hearts of red-blooded Ferraristi into dangerous flutter, while others blindly reached for their checkbooks without a second thought. The name GTO, after all, recalls what many regard as the ultimate Ferrari and the […]

1958 Ferrari 330 GTC

“The best all-around V12.” With these words many Ferraristi have described the 330 GTC, a car with poise, performance and practicality rivaled by few others. When the 250 GT Lusso ceased to exist at the end of 1964 it created a gap in the Ferrari range. Whereas the Lusso had […]

1961 Ferrari 250 GT Competition SEFC SWB

The first Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta with a 240cm wheelbase, later nicknamed SWB (for short wheelbase), was shown at the Paris Motor Show held in October 1959. It was still very much a prototype but the complete finished car was ready for the Turin and Geneva Shows held a few […]

1965 Ferrari 275 GTS

{vsig}1995-2_1751{/vsig} The 275 series of road cars made its debut at the 1964 Paris Motor Show, replacing the long-standing 250 range in its various forms. The stunning new 275 GTB replaced the 250 SWB Berlinetta and 250 Lusso as a car that could be used both on road and track, […]

1987 Ferrari Testarossa

Pininfarina has pulled off many masterstrokes in its time, but few compare with its styling of the Testarossa. Those long “egg slicer” grilles down the side of the body are more than merely functional, they are more than just a style statement, they are positively inspired. They are the sort […]
