There appears to be no end to this market

Cavallino Staff, Olviier Bidaud

Olivier Bidaud


More and more, Ferraris are becoming a safe haven from all the world's economic troubles, real or imagined. Another auction, another eye-opening event, another jump in the market, another confirmation of a trend ... perhaps.

Jack E. Thomas

Peter Singhof, Vincent Yernaux, Lars Theunissen


1000 miles and two days on the road - what is remarkable is the inherent reliability of these three liter V-12s, way back then and even in the here and now, five and half decades later.

Etienne Vanaret, Keith Bluemel, Olivier Bidaud, Vincent Yernaux

500 Ferraris contre le cancer

Olivier Bidaud, Cavallino Staff

Olivier Bidaud


This has grown to be an enormous event, held each year at the Circuit du Val du Vienne in Le Vigilant, France. The overall theme is to bring together many sports and GT cars, of many marques, to have a few fun days on track, in an unstructured and non-competitive atmosphere.

It raced only once and did not finish. And it spent most of its life in boxes. Is there any worth to this seemingly orphaned TdF?
Indeed there is, because it is a true example of all that was good about the Ferrari 250 GT LWB TdF - speed, power, versatility, and an inherent beauty of form.
54 Feature Evolution of a Brand
Enzo Ferrari's signature

Nathan Beehl

Nathan Beehl


Ferrari is now one of the most famous and widely recognized names in the world, and anyone interested in Ferrari known the famous purple ink, and the signature with simply the surname.
What started as an insignificant gesture - the signature on any letter or document - became over time the stamp that personified the man. The slow and seamless changes over the years are noted, as this signature reaches it's iconic form.

Giulio Borsari epitomised the racing mechanic. During a career of more than thirty years, he assisted drivers of three generations, first of all at Maserati, then at Ferrari. A poignant tribute.
60 Corse Ferrari in Formula One 2013
This season is a tough one but there are victories

Keith Bluemel

Ferrari SpA., Paolo D'Alessio


An interesting season so far for Ferrari, with several wins being diluted by bad luck and finicky tires. Not giving up is the key.

Keith Bluemel

Ferrari SpA., Keith Bluemel

68 Corse Ferrari in GT Racing 2013

Keith Bluemel

Keith Bluemel, Ferrari SpA.


The success of the Ferrari 458 Italia in GT racing is good to see, and it's been a boon to Ferrari in this class. It's fast, it's competitive, it's good looking ... and it's a Ferrari. Privateer teams have lined up to get one.
