We are pleased to present to you for the first time in an English language publication, the very special Ferrari collection of Mr. Jack Setton of France. Mr. Setton has built up over the last few years a collection of many marques that is as selective as it is far reaching and as discriminating as it is choice. The speciality is racing cars, and while he has an enviable assemblage of McLarens, Lotus, Williams, Matras, etc., it is the Ferraris that are nearest and dearest to our covetous hearts.

8 Ferrari GTO and F40, a different view

What I will say here may very well infuriate my fellow Ferrari enthusiasts, of whom, I hasten to add, there are no finer people in the world. These views will, at least, be controversial. I cannot help it. I have serious reservations about two of the most spectacular models in Ferrari's recent history, the Ferrari 288 GTO and the recently announced Ferrari F40.

24 P2 on the Road
A ride in the Country

When you or I go to buy a Ferrari, the salesman gives us a demo ride. If you've achieved some status in life, or if your are a particularly valued customer, the owner himself might come forward to squire you around. But when David A. Clarke is thing of buying a 365 P2/3 from Col. Ronnie Hoare of Maranello Concessionaires, he gets Michael Parkes to show him the ropes!

26 61st Mille Miglia
A first look at the great classic revival

The 61st Mille Miglia was run in perfect weather with 294 cars chose from 1,500 that applied. The organization exceeded all hopes, the crowds larger than ever and the enthusiasm hard to believe, school children out of class waving flags, farmers sitting on stools by the shoulders watching quietly. Late at night and at seven o'clock in the morning, they were there cheering everyone that passed.

28 The Jack Setton Collection
A visit to one of the more choice of Ferrari treasures

Mr. Setton's mechanic met me at the gate on the first morning, and we drove together, nose to tail, down the long gravel road to the château in the distance. The road separated thick forest on the right, and a neatly mowed swath of land on the left. Inside it was very dark, and I followed the mechanic up the stairs with the faint smells of oil and metal.

37 The Lack Setton Ferrari Collection

If ever you should stop by, and don't want to appear entirely mute as you gaze upon the wonders to behold, we have provided a quick fact sheet below on the rarer and more choice cars of the collection. Study well, speak knowledgeably, and be prepared for a quiz at the end of the tour. Students, begin.

38 Ferrari Type Numbers
Numbers and more numbers. Where will it ever end?

Even though many Ferraris carry such romantic and evocative names as Mille Miglia and Le Mans and Monza and Testa Rossa, and others are saddled with some vague and entirely unattributable monikers such as Inter and Superfast and Squalo, the precise naming and defining of Ferraris comes down to the numbers. If you want to know what a certain Ferrari is, and where it stands in the long Ferrari honor roll, you have to know its model number, or model designation, and this, in almost all cases, is based on the engine on board and does explain all.

40 Finding Tazio Nuvolari
Enzo Ferrari has said: For me, there has been one great driver: Nuvolari

Since my high school days when MG TDs were new, this man and his adventures have fascinated me. I was in the wrong place and born too late for it to make sense, but what must have started it was a book still on my bookshelf, a paperback edition of Ken Purdy's "King of the Road", carefully hard bound long ago by a kid living in Southwest Louisiana and infected with Sports Cars.

42 The story of 0851 GT
part Three

When Dyke brought "the gray car" home from Skip McCabe's shop the day before Christmas, the body was basically complete, meaning it had been painted and most of the interior pieces has been made. The problem was that it wasn't put together. There were at least 1500 pieces in boxes or sacks with no labels or numbers! Dyke was ready for the car to be completed, as the coordination of the restoration project had already involved far more time, energy and money than projected.

48 Ferrari GTO
by Jürgen Lewandowski

In November of last year, a large party was held at the well known Ferrari dealer in Münich, Auto-König. The festivities were to celebrate the publication of a new book by Jürgen Lewandowski and Südwest Verlag called "Ferrari GTO." There were several 288 GTOs on hand that evening, and example of the entire current production range (minus the F40), drinks, and a giant and fantastic table of Italian delicacies. However, the truly interesting activity was upstairs, at the book's unveiling.

50 Hollywood Sports Cars
A star in the Land of Stars

Forget the Academy Awards and the various nominations for best for this and that in the multitude of categories. All the stars in Hollywood are not big name celebrities, commanding instant recognition from their bevy of fans. Some of the real stars are the people with products and services that the rich and famous crave, that bring them status and recognition.

58 Ferrari Alba makes great strides in IMSA Camel Light series

Many readers remember Gaston Andrey from the late fifties and early sixties when he piloted various Ferraris in the sports car races. For the past few years, Gaston Andrey, a Ferrari dealer in Framingham, Massachusetts, and Carmaff Racing of Milano, Italy have been campaigning two Camel Light cars in the IMSA Camel Light series. Both cars, an Alba and Tiga chassis, are propelled by two valve 308 conversion Ferrari engines prepared by Italian engineer and designer, Carlo Facetti.

59 Winter testing shows promise
Ferrari's upward trend continues

Over the winter, the decision was made to begin the 1988 racing year, and indeed, to spend most of the year, with a modified version of the all-of-a-sudden very successful F1-87. Ferrari finished 1987 on a very high note, winning in Japan and Australia, and it was felt they were going in the right direction on the F1-87, with everybody coming together nicely, so why not continue development of same.
