On March 28, Ferrari unveiled the new Ferrari 360 in front of the Duomo in the medieval heart of Modena, and to surround the car they brought several Formula Ferraris that are part of a current display in the Galleria Ferrari in Maranello. The 1961 Ferrari 156 Sharknose is the Chris Rea replica made for his movie of several years back. Ferrari allows the car to be exhibited but without the nose badge.
16 Notizie Ferrari introduces another new model
Ferarri F355 Spider 'Serie Fiorano'

Ferrari SpA


Lost in all the publicity surrounding the Ferrari 360 Modena was the presentation of the last extenuation, the last refinement, the last mutation of the F355 line, a special "Serie Fiorano" Spider limited to 100 automobiles. It is meant to ease the transition from the F355 Spider to the 360 Spider, the latter being still far in the future.

The Ferrari Club of Japan had a tenth anniversary party on June 5 & 6, 1999, at and near the Suzuka Circuit, and by all accounts it was a huge success. Over 300 Ferraris took part in various concours and track events, and the 360 Modena was presented by Cornes, the official importer to Japan.

34 Feature A V-12 Dino revived

Marc Sonnery

Marc Sonnery


It started its life as a succesful V-6 Dino, and soon became a succesful V-12 hybrid, only to become a fairly succesful road car, before becoming a succesful vintage racer. Confused? It is a tortuous tale told in truth, but not without some amusement.

This story is equally as involved as above, but this 212/225 was nearly lost for good. It took some care and feeding by one Texas lady to save this gem from extinction. The current owner slowly brings this Vignale bodied coupe through a fine restoration.

MPS Editorial Services, Pierre Goossens, Andreas Meiniger


In the post war years of the fabled Italian, 1.000 mile race, Ferrari won eight of the eleven events from 1947 to 1957, these wins adding immeasurably to its fame. When the Mille Miglia was revived in 1977, it became a staged rally for all sports cars of 1957 and older vintage. Many Ferraris took part, of course, but none were to win again until this year.

THe FIA has anointed this fledgling series for open sports cars, and has renamed it the Sports Racing World Cup. This came just before the Spa race on May 16, to the delight of all. The F333 SP's are doing well in this series, winning most of the races, although the battles beween the six to eight Ferraris are intense.

Ferrari even went as far as to have the F50 homologated, but decided not to build a series on their own.
