The phone calls and letters can stop now; we're sorry, but we do not know where you can buy a 500 Super Fast for $85,000!!! Keeping track of this very volatile Ferrari market at the moment is extraordinary difficult and, as each issue is put to bed three to four weeks before you receive it, we are always about one month behind the market.

In the fall of 1978, Mr. Anthony Bamford in England telephoned me to say that after protracted negotiations with Mr. Luigi Chinetti, he had managed to purchase the 1960 Formula One Dino, chassis number 0003, which had been sent to the States at the end of its racing career and had originally been destined for the Ford Museum.

One of only six chassis of the Series II Superamericas constructed in 1957, Super Fast 4.9 - a one off Ferrari - became the embodiment of the many concurrents in design from the many then thriving carrozzeria in Italy which were setting the standards for post World War II body lines. Applied ornament, radial surface forms, and the all too evident use of chrome, were dominating coachwork in the decade of the 1950s.

Known for his reports from around the world on the doings of the Formule One crowd as published in Road & Track. Rob Walker is almost as famous among car enthusiasts for the various automotive exotica he has owned. The have been Ferraris, too. How about one of the three 196 Sport spyders built in the last 1950s with Fantuzzi Testa Rossa like bodywork, or a 246 Dino, or a Lusso or two, a Dyatona, or two racing 250 GT short wheelbase berlinettas?

36 Notizie A Man with Experience
When it comes to the servicing and repair of Ferraris, and here we mean all Ferraris, and here we mean all Ferraris, of all ages and cylinder persuasions, there is almost nothing, not even intense education nor raw talent, that can beat good, old, earned-in-the-hard-way experience. When it comes to knowing why an old V-12 is really down on power, or why that venerable straight four makes that funny noise coming out of turn nine at Laguna Seca during the historic races.
42 Corse New Car, New Season, New Hope...

Giorgio Piola, Autosprint


In early March, Ferrari held a press conference to present its new Formula One contender to the automotive world - the 1987 F1-87. It is a neat piece of work, one of the most compact, spare, and tidy chassis to come from Ferrari in a long time. It is obvious that the instructions given to the design team last year were to "think small," and that's exactly the impression one gets on first viewing this car, its diminutively appearing size.
