6 Notizie Ferrari 550 Barchetta Pininfarina
This variation on a theme will extend the model range of the already succesful 550 Maranello
The rumours were true, and very quietly Ferrari has introduced the Ferrari 550 Barchetta Pininfarina. All this took place on September 14-15, 2000 at the villa of Ferrari President Luca di Montezemolo near Bologna. The guest list was strictly for first customers of the car, which will number at somewhere near 448 examples (444 originally we were told, but this number is unlucky in the important Asian market).

The Louis Vuitton Classic at the Bagatelle in Paris is always the height of elegance as only the French can do it - rare classic cars in a beautiful setting with the finest in food and wine to pass the day. Ferrari always plays a major role here and the organizers always seem to entice some rare and rarely seen examples.

The Pininfarina Rossa, an automobile conceived to celebrate the company's 70th anniversary, but also a car which suggests where the design firm sees itself going in the future. The basis of this show car is a Ferrari 550 Maranello, and this is important since this is a front engined car, thus indicating that such a configuration will be built by Ferrari for many years in the future.

Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance

Jerry Wyszaticki, Marc Sonnery


The Concours d'Elegance at Pebble Beach celebrated its 50th Anniversary, and the crowds who wanted to partake of this special event were enormous. The selection of classic cars on view was excellent as always, and the weather was excellent as well, which is not always the case. Maseratis were again featured and the Ferraris were relegated to a small but distinctive class of eight examples, some for judging and some for display.
