16 Notizie Chantilly presents European Culture with a French Accent
Chantilly Arts & Elegance 2016

Olivier Bidaud, Arnaud Meunier

Peter Singhof


For the past three years, the first weekend of September has been the occasion to see some of the most beautiful cars in the world, in the exceptional and historical venue of the Chateau de Chantilly. This great event, organized by Peter Auto, managed to gather as many visitors as last year (13,500), despite rainy weather on the Sunday. It is more than just fine automobiles, as it also highlights the best of French culture, hence the name - Chantilly Arts & Elegance.
18 Notizie Ferrari presents many new programs in Paris
Mondial de l'Automobile 2016

Olivier Bidaud

Olivier Bidaud


The 2016 edition of the "Mondial de l'Automobile", the French motor show organized every two years in Paris, won't stay in people's memories, mainly because many of the major constructors, including a majority of luxury brands, did not make it to Paris this year. The explanation given - the huge cost of show space. One of the only luxury brands to be present this year in Hall #1 was Ferrari, with a fantastic display on the "70th Anniversary" theme.
22 Feature The Ferrari 250 GT in the Tour de France Automobile
7th Tour de France Automobile, September 14th to 21st, 1958

Germain Malléjac

Maurice Louche


The year of 1958 was to be a longer run for this new edition of the Tour de France, but split into four stages instead of the previous year's three, and with an extra night's rest. Such was the program that awaited the competitors of this "1958 Marathon". The categories of Tourisme and Grand Tourisme, which had been introduced and greeted unanimously in 1957, were renewed, as well as the Overall (Scratch) and the Performance Index rankings.
38 Feature Ferrari 250 Monza
A new set of clothes doth maketh the man

Keith Bluemel

Jerry Myszatycki, Motion Products


The 250 Monza is one of the rarer Ferrari models from the mid-fifties, with only just four examples produced during 1954. If one breaks it down further, two were produced with Pinin Farina Spyder bodies, on chassis numbers 0420 M and 0432 M, and two more with Scaglietti Spyder bodies, on chassis numbers 0442 M and 0446 M, increasing the rarity of specific examples. The feature car, chassis number 0432 M, was re-modelled by Scaglietti in 1957, at the request of Luigi Chinetti, to a body configuration similar to that of the pontoon fender 250 Testa Rossa, which was just coming on stream, and which was the "style of the moment", thus (hopefully) making an older racing car easier to sell.
46 Auto da Corsa Storica Beunos Aires GP at Mendoza 1956

Fundación Fangio


The Gran Premio de la Ciudad de Buenos Aires 1956 was held at the Autódromo 'Parque General San Martín' in the city of Mendoza. Juan Manuel Fangio and Ferrari were victorious in the non-championship Formula One race with one particularity - the hosting venue in Mendoza was 740 miles away from the city after which the event was named!
50 Biografia The Life and Times of Charles Pozzi
The Man who gave Ferrari a secure place in France

Graham Gauld

Maurice Louche Archives


Over the years much has been written about the key people who helped Enzo Ferrari sell race cars and then road cars to create the multi-million-dollar company it is today. Names like Jacques Swaters, the Belgian race driver who set up Garage Francorchamps, Ronnie Hoare in England, who set up Maranello Concessionaires and, of course, the dadday of them all, Luigi Chinetti. However, there was another early pioneer in the promotion of Enzo Ferrari who is often forgotten about - Charles Pozzi.
58 Notizie Concours of Elegance at Windsor Castle 2016
September 2-4, 2016

Cavallino Staff, Peter Singhof, Keith Bluemel

Peter Singhof


The Concours of Elegance has grown from a small boutique show cerebrating the attractions of a luxury lifestyle into a nicely regarded show of meaningful automotive machinery. There is still plenty of luxury lifestyle apparatus evident, but the cars are our interest here, and each year the varied selection has grown better and better.
60 Notizie Salon Privé at Blenheim Palace 2016
September 1-3, 2016

Cavallino Staff, Peter Singhof, Keith Bluemel

Peter Singhof


Salon Privé began its 11th year, not at all diverting from its stated goal of presenting a perfect English garden party experience, this once again on the grounds of Blenheim Palace. There are new cars as well as old, but the newness doesn't detract from the historical flavor of the house, the grounds, the automobiles (and in some cases, the owners).

Lord March revives an era as only Goodwood can

Vincent Yernaux, Peter Singhof

Cavallino Staff, Vincent Yernaux, Keith Bluemel, Peter Singhof


The Goodwood Revival again terrorized the old racing world by bringing together older race cars (all of which are becoming vintage by the day) and turning them loose on the sainted Goodwood circuit to have a go, and go they do. There is no slacking here, it's serious racing, but this year did not see any major incidences.
