30 Data for your files

There are so many events nowadays hosting Ferraris, as there should be, since these cars are the mechanical art for our age. Cavallino would like to cover them all in detail but given the limits of time and space, this is, regrettably, not possible. But the appearance of the important models is indeed worth noting for now and for the future. Our compliments to the owners.

The story of Ferrari 250 GTO, s/n 3943 GT

2012 marks the Golden Jubilee of Ferrari's iconic 250 GTO, a car that has achieved almost mythical status in the Ferrari collectors' world, and with only 36 examples built, it is only a fortunate few who can enjoy the pride and passion of ownership.

64 Ferrari & Alonso give fans a magnificent win
Formula One

It is a season of drama, especially for Ferrari, with some very good races and several very dispiriting races, leaving one to wonder how van they carry on. But they are, and the net result is that Fernando Alonso is in the lead for the Drivers' Championship.

68 Le Mans 24 Hours sees Ferrari GT class win
FIA World Endurance Championship

Still one of the greatest races of them all, and a true test of endurance. This year saw nine Ferrari GTs entered, the 458 GT2s, and only three did not finish, for a 66% finishing rate. And the finishes were laudatory - first, second and forth in one class, and third, sixth and seventh in the other. A more than respectable record for a car that is fast becoming a Ferrari GT legend.
