Natan Tazelaar

Ferrari SpA


What looked like a logical step in the steady growth of Maranello's model range was more than that, because the Ferrari 812 GTS also celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of an icon.
Ferrari presented the open top variant of the Ferrari 812 Superfast exactly fifty years after the launch of the Ferrari 365 GTS/4, better known as the Daytona Spider.

No Ferraris at Sebring - No Worries

David Brady

Ferrari SpA


The 2021 IMSA Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring would see Ferrari's first absence in twenty years. Though unexpcted, it probably should have been predictable.
Currently, Ferrrari has no factory racing activity in the IMSA series. In the last several years three teams have campaigned Ferrari in IMSA GTD and GTLM classes - Scuderia Corse from California, Risi Competizione from Texas and the Italian AF Corse.

59 Mercato No direction in the Online Auctions

Brian Henniker, Courtesy of Gooding


Some great sales, some great misses, take your pick on how you want to read the market. Good cars still bringing good proces, overbuilt cars are lagging.
Also the apparent failure (No Sales) of specific auctions can be attributed to wrong place, wrong crowd, wrong cars, etc.
