18 512 M, s/n 1040, The SUNOCO Ferrari
Part II - an interview with Kirk F. White, the man behind the Sunoco/Ferrari project and some great old photos of the car at Daytona in 1971

Several years ago, Ferrari historian Nathan Beehl had a chance to sit down with Kirk F. White to talk about the old blue 512 M, s/n 1040. Kirk White, along with impressario Roger Penske, was one of the main forces behind the car, a valiant attempt by a group of Americans to become legitimate privateers by entering a Ferrari in major world events.

24 F512 M - Testarossa reaches it's Prime
Another 512 , with an "M" for "modified" too, but twenty three years and a world, apart

In the autumn of 1994, a new version of the Ferrari 512 was introduced on the market. it is called the M version, as M stands for "Modified". Evolution never stops; therefore, even for a car which is recognized at the top for its outstanding performance and its strong personality such as the 512, the habit to apply further technical and aesthetic improvements is maintained. The new F512 M was introduced in Europe at the Paris Auto Show and in the US at the Cavallino Ferrari Classic.

28 206 S, s/n 012 - The Sporting Dino
Often neglected, but always respected, this is one of the prettiest Ferraris ever made

There is little doubt that the 206 S is one of the most beautiful cars ever created. It is a scaled down version of the then current 330 P3 design of the large prototypes, and the reduction translated beautifully. The overall style is credited to Piero Drogo at Carrozzeria Sports Cars in Modena, and it can be said that this design was the high water mark of Mr. Drogo's somewhat checkered career as a body designer.
