The 166 MM Barchetta with coachwork by Carrozzeria Touring of Milan is rightly regarded as an iconic design from the very early years of Ferrari production, and traces of its lines can be seen in other manufacturers' sports models of the period, whilst the deisng was also used on other Ferrari models of the time. The body was constructed to Touring's Superleggera principle of lightweight aluminium panels over a frame of small diameter tubes, and the design is attributed to Carlo Felice Anderloni, assisted by one Federico Formenti, whose name appears on the original drawings.
26 Letteratura The Sales Drive from Maranello

Cavallino Staff


What sets this new brochure book apart is that it is such a quantum leap over the first brochure book from the 70s, and over any other book of any kind, in any field. It is complete in that is has all the known literature (90 official Ferrari brochures) from 1940 to 1964, many previously unknown, with their front covers full size in full color.
26 Letteratura A Postcard from Maranello
by Nathan Beehl & David Williams

Cavallino Staff


Following on the success of the first book, the same team of enthusiasts - Nathan Beehl, David Williams and a collector/sponsor - decided on a second book of the same caliber, this one about the postcards issued by the Ferrari factory over the years. Why postcards? In an age before extensive TV or the internet, printed matter was the only way to visually convey your message.

42 Feature Ferrari Spyder Corsa 016 I
Extensive new research into the origins of the Ferrari in America

Luigi Chinetti, Sr. probably become acquinted with Enzo Ferrari when they both worked at Alfa Romeo during the 1920s. In December 1946, Chinetti famously made a trip, by automobile, from Paris to Modena to meet with Ferrari and, depending on which version of the story you heard or read, convinced him to build cars that he (Chinetti) could sell, or he placed an order for a number of cars to be built, or convinced Ferrari that there were buyers for his cars in the new world and England that he knew. These stories are contradicted by the facts.
58 Feature Notes on the restoriation of 016 I
Then: Alfred Momo, now: Paul Russel
During its racing life with Cunningham, the spyder corsa was maintained by one Alfred Momo from Turin. The Ferrari 166 spyder corse was retained in the museum after its active live. It had never been restored, only maintained as a race car then given some cosmetic attention to its outward appearance. After Collier bought the collection, Collier presented 016 I in 2012 to Paul Russel and Company for a full restoration. The point in time to represent was Watkins Glen 1950.

The 2015 GT season has continued with a pair of races in the Tudor USCC in the USA, one of which, in Detroit didn't feature a GTLM class, leaving the Scuderia Corsa Ferrari in the GTD class as the only Ferrari representative; unfortunately it was not running at the finish. In the next round at Watkins Glen, the GTLM class was back with the #62 Risi Competizione 458 GT2 as the sole Ferrari entry, with the #63 Scuderia Corsa car the only Ferrari running in the GTD class, with both cars shy of their respective podiums come the end of the race.
