6 Mercato Rising Tides

Michael Sheehan


With Ferrari as the feature marque on the Monterey Historic races and Pebble Beach, and a fleet of GTOs rumbling across the Laurels Grade to The Quail, combined with the hordes of over-hormoned Ferrari owners at Concorso Italiano, and filling the streets of the Monterey peninsula, it was predictable that the current "hot-on-the-market" Ferrais would set new pricing standards at Monterey's multiple auctions.
6 Mercato Sotheby's Auction at Maranello
The ultimate Ferrari auction?

Rick Carey


Sotheby's recently announced an all-Ferrari / Maserati auction. It's not an unusual concept, Bonhams having successfully developed the franchise in Gstaad since 1999, and the short-lived Orion all-Ferrari auctions having a star-studded history in the 1980s. Sotheby's sale, however, has several distinctive attributes, like the fact it's been held in the hallowed, and rarely seen, Ferrari Maranello premises.

Your friends of Peter Auto, who do the very successful Tour Auto and Tour España, teamed up two years ago with the Automobile Club de l'Ouest, the organizers of the Le Mans 24 Hours race, to run a retrospective race for those makes and types of cars that competed there from 1923 to 1978. It was a huge success, and so a second edition was run in July of this year.

28 Feature Ferrari F430

Xavier de Nombel


Ferrari has announced recently, at the Paris Motor Show, the new successor to the 360 Modena. It was very warmly received, because virtually it is a very lively and modern extension of the amorphous shape first introduced by Ferrari on the 360 five years ago. Over those years, the shape has become even stronger, first as a Challenge car, then as a GT and GTC racer, and finally as the Stradale.

Chassis 0143 E is one of those Touring bodied coupes (body no. 3467) stretched to fit on a 2,500 mm chassis, with styling ties to the beautiful french blue 166 MM "Le Mans" Berlinettas by Touring.
Enzo Ferrari had presented this light blue 212 Ferrari Touring Coupé to Mike Hawthorn that spring. Hawthorn continued to use his 212 on the continent in 1953.
