15 The Mille Miglia Historica continues to welcome the old Ferraris
Brescia-Rome-Brescia, Italy - May 9-12, 1996

18 Twelfth Annual Reading Ferrari Concours d'Elegance
Reading Country Club, Pennsylvania - May 19, 1996

Reading Country Club represents an urbane Hollywood image of golfers in white golf carts, smooth crew cut grass links, and a club house of cut stone, with a circular driveway around an Italianate styled center fountain. Into this tranquil setting once a year Pietro Castiglioni arrives with his troop of 100 Ferraris and a sit down dinner for 250 guests.

22 Ferrari 550 Maranello preview!
This is more than a new Ferrari - it signifies a radical direction for the entire company

In one of the largest and most extensive introductions in its long history, Ferrari took over the Nürburgring race course in Germany during the weekend of July 20-21, 1996, to present its newest model, the Ferrari 550 Maranello. Perhaps this extravaganza was inevitable - this is the first front engined V-12 Ferrari Berlinetta since the retirement of the sainted Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona in 1973.

24 Gilles Villeneuve!
A driving legend is elevated to mythological status

Many were the drivers that raced for Enzo Ferrari, but no Ferrari driver was more loved than Gilles Villeneuve. Gilles always gave it his all, and made many sacrifices in the name of victory. In each and every race, whether he won or not, Villeneuve always showed a great deal of courage, audacity and determination. Since it is not a secret that these were the qualities that Enzo Ferrari liked the most in his drivers, Gilles was one of the drivers that Enzo admired above all others.

27 The early 250 Europa GT is explored
A researcher's work is never done; Ferrari archeological studies present endless puzzles

Many issues ago in Cavallino, many of your hardworking experts pulled together to bring you the last word on the important and pivotal Ferrari models, the 250 Europa and 250 Europa GT. But the final word is never final with Ferrari and in the intervening years, Keith Bluemel in England has pursued some questions that were never truly resolved, and he has looked at available facts from an original perspective. This is his final word - for now.

35 Una storia particolare
1954 Ferrari 250 GT, s/n 0363 GT

Ferrari 250 GT serial number 0363 GT was produced at the end of 1954 and the chassis was to receive a "normal" steel Pinin Farina coupe body for which production started on October 25, 1954 under job number 12554. On January 11, 1955, the car was transported to Brussels for the well known "Salon de Bruxelles". Apparently, the car was sold there through Jacques Swaters Garage Francorchamps.

36 3765 SA - a Ferrari experiment!
The mating of a 400 SA engine and chassis, with the body of a GTO, produces an unique result

In 1961, in an attempt to involve more manufacturers in racing, the FIA announced that the 1962 Constructors' Championship would be run for grand touring cars. Sports prototypes would still be allowed to compete to add spectator appeal, but all championship point would go to the GT cars. Ferrari was concerned that there would be new competitors in the prototype class for overall victories, and, freed from the three liter limit, he began a series of experiments with four liter engines.

47 Ferrari F333 SP leads in the field in IMSA
IMSA WSC Championship

At the Watkins Glen WSC race, Max Papis was in second near the end of the even when he was booted off the track by Wayne Taylor. He regained the course nine or so places behind, but in a righteous rage he overtook everyone in the final moments, including Mr. Taylor and won the race!

51 Ferraris at Le Mans, 1996

It is hard to believe that while three years ago we were overjoyed by the presence of the modest Ferrari 348, this year we were spoilt with no less than six Ferraris. An amazing progression! Additionally, the veritable battalion of four Ferrari F40s had to play second fiddle to not one, but two, Ferrari F333 SPs, fully prepared in order to avoid the nightmarish hassles of last year's lone F333 SP.
