2 Such a Deal ...!

Imitation is the best form of flattery they say, and while this is generally regarded as true, the myriad forms that the imitations van take can really be problematical at best and distressing at the very least. This is especially true when one attempts to imitate a Ferrari, and in the last year, several efforts have been made that bear comment. We're not concerned with the fiber fab kit-cars. What does concern us are the well-financed and well-coordinated attempts to build "new" Ferrari from collations of old Ferrari parts, or even from scratch.

A look at Ferrari's special process for metal corrosion protection

The quality and performance of the engines and the mechanical systems of the racing cars produced by Ferrari are widely known. A less known aspect, but nonetheless of high technical merit, is represented by the activity which Ferrari is developing, and by the results being obtained, in the design of bodywork for its Gran Turismo cars.

Ferrari models continue to proliferate, and so do the model makers. And what is surprising is the consistently high quality and skill shown by these craftsmen in miniature.

48 The Season Continues

The Ferrari Formula 1 team continues to troop along, making the best of an uneventful and generally unrewarding season. The result of this year's races were known early on, as the McLaren team proved to be unstoppable. Actually, Ferrari has not done all that badly this year (second so far in the constructors championship, for example) but their efforts have been completely overshadowed by the McLaren.
