2014 Ferrari LaFerrari

“We chose to call this model LaFerrari because it is the finest expression of our company’s unique, unparalleled engineering and design know-how, including that acquired in Formula One.”

This is how Chairman Luca di Montezemolo summarized the successor to the Enzo when it was launched at the Geneva Salon in March 2013. He planned a 499-car production run. One more car — the 500th — has been added, and will be auctioned to benefit Read More

Following their win at Le Mans in 1953, where Duncan Hamilton and Tony Rolt led a veritable parade of C-types to three of the top four finishes, Jaguar faced a problem.

While the origins of the legendary model have been well established and the entire production run carefully documented by devoted historians, the exceptionally rare competition variants were built to highly individualized specifications and do not fall into a single, all-encompassing category.
