20 Notizie Sergio Pininfarina honored at Geneva

Hugo Garritsen


At the Geneva Salon each year, Pininfarina hosts a stand with some of its latest design creations, for Ferraris and other marques as well.
This year they chose to honor the recently departed Sergio Pininfarina, the guiding light of the firm for several decades, with a concept car aptly named - Sergio.
It is reported to be on a 458 chassis. Its fluid curves totally reject the studied angularity of other recent concept cars. Beauty returns to car styling.

Ferrari Family, Jean-Claude Garçonnet


Nobody better knew Enzo Ferrari, the man as well as the manufacturer, than Franco Gozzi, who became over the years the most faithful, listened and appreciated of Ferrari's collaborators. An important part of the history of the brand disappeared with him.

83 Mercato The Dino 246 - small car, big money
A cold, hard look at one corner of the market

Rick Carey


To day Dinos have experienced a renaissance in collectors' esteem - at least to the extent esteem is reflected in price - in the recent past is something of an understatement.
After years and years in mid-five figures, the Dino 246 GTs began a cautious advance in 2005, teasing six-figures before finally punching through in definitive fashion with Bonhams' sale of s/n 02870 at Monaco in 2006.
