The participants in the Shell Historic Ferrari Maserati Challenge series had the opportunity to exercise their steeds on the famous La Sarthe circuit, as a prelude to the 24 Hour Le Mans Race, which was won by Emanuele Pirro, Frank Biela and Tom Kristensen for Audi.

Pininfarina’s links to Ferrari have been immensely strong for decades. The designer from Turin has created almost every new Ferrari road car since the late 1950’s. Thus it is no wonder that Pininfarina chose Ferrari components to create a special one-off to celebrate the company’s 70th anniversary. The chassis and engine of a 550 Maranello, more >>>

Goodwood Revival

The inaugural Goodwood Revival Meeting was held in September 1998, under superb clear blue skies, and left visitors in awe over the attention to detail that gave the impression of being in a fifties time warp. This meticulous preparation immediately placed the event at the top of every Classic enthusiast’s list of ”must visit” meetings. In 1999 rain affected the event but didn’t detract from the ambience, and even added its own special ingredient on the track, more >>>

Some weeks ago an envelope with a Ferrari postmark arrived at the homes of around 250 major Ferrari collectors worldwide. Within the envelope was an invitation from Ferrari's CEO to attend a dinner party at his villa, with the incentive, as if it were needed, to witness a preview presentation of a new Ferrari model. It was unlikely that anybody was going to pass up an invitation like this. Thus a large number of prominent Ferrari collectors from all parts of the globe assembled with great anticipation, in the city of Bologna around the 14/15 September to see what delight awaited them.     more >>>

Techno Classica

The  “Techno  Classica”  which  is  held  annually  in  spring  in  Essen, Germany, claims  to  be  the  world’s  largest  classic  car  exposition  and  is described  as  an ”international  swap  meet  for  oldtimers,  classic  cars, motorcycles, spare parts and the restoration industry”. However,  it  is  at  least  the  most  important  show  of  its  kind in  Europe,  and thus  the  Techno  Classica  usually  attracts  many  dealers  who  have one  or several  Ferrari  on  offer.  This  year,  the  exhibition  was  hosted  between  April
6 and 9.  more

Only one word came to mind when reading the provisional entry list for the first Targa Florio Revival organised by Patrick Peter and Rosario Parasiliti: Mouthwatering !

550 GTS

Since the days of the 365 GTB/4 Daytona Competizione, Ferrari did not have any remarkable or even successful entries in GT racing. Being Ferrari’s first front-engined top-of-the-line model after slightly more than 20 years, the 550 Maranello has often been regarded as some kind of reminiscence to its legendary ancestor, the 365 GTB/4. So, it is no wonder that some enthusiastic ”aficionados” of the marque became infected by the idea of entering a 550 Maranello,     more >>>

Although there were only two Ferraris in the automobile section of the auction, a 340 America Touring berlinetta, chassis  # 0126A, and a 365 GT4/BB, chassis # 17861, there was an interesting selection of Ferrari related items in the memorabilia section. more >>>

Racing in the more ”sophisticated” FIA GT Championship generated his interest in an adequate,    more >>>
