13 The type, size and placement of Weber and Air Cleaner tags in early Ferraris

Over the years the segment of Ferrari history that has been of most interest to me has been engine and running gear detailing, such things as hoses, clamps, tags, stickers, fasteners, and component finishes.

The lon awaited super car is here. Ferrari takes this opportunity to tell you about it

This impressive technological marvel has been shown in Switzerland and Japan, and to date, only two examples exist - a prototype which continues to circulate Fiorano on endless laps, refining the many innovative features found therein, and the show car which is s/n ZFFTA46B000099999. There was a third car spied at Geneva, but this was a wooden mock up on the Pininfarina stand.

22 Ferrari 410 Superamerica, s/n 0721S A
A classic Grand Tourer is found and restored, to the benefit of us all

As early as the mid 1950s and after only five years of producing cars in any quantity, Ferrari had begun building, albeit on a very limited basis, the ultimate grand touting car of its day, the Ferrari 410 Superamerica. These cars were big bodied and big engined two place GTs capable of quickly delivering the driver and passenger to their destination in near royal surroundings.

37 F355 Competzione prototype announced
Ferrari explores a new arena

Ferrari has built an F355 prototype to investigate the possibility of customers racing in GT events. The future destination of the car will depend on the evolution of regulations, especially on the relationship between normally aspired and supercharged cars. Its features are, however, deeply modified with the aim towards international GT races.

Could we ask for anything more?

Even as Ferrari redoubles its efforts to remain competitive in Formula One, it has plunged whole heartedly into sports and GT racing, with benefit to all. Not only can Ferrari fans and enthusiasts watch actual competition Ferraris racing around the world, but drivers of all persuasions can now climb in and live out all the fantasies on which we were all raised - who would not want to drive a Ferrari in an actual race?
