16 Feature A Mystery solved
How the Testa Rossas changed from 1960 to 1961 - the Answer may surprise you

Paul Frère

Alexis Callier, Antoine Prunet


A few weeks after Olivier Gendebien and I had won the Le Mans 24 Hours Race of 1960, driving a three litre V-12 Testa Rosso, I drove to Maranello and spent some time with Enzo Ferrari in his office. Of course, we talked a lot about Le Mans. If we had won, it was because the car was utterly reliable, and it accelerated strongly compared to most others, but certainly not because it was fast.
18 Feature When is a Mondial not a Mondial?
When it's just about everything else. An interesting follow up to our Mondial story

Robert A. Phillips


In our last issue, we presented a detailed history of all the known Series II Ferrari 500 Mondials, we thought you might be interested in the other side of the coin - all those cars which at one time or another had been identified as Series II Ferrari 500 Mondials, but which in reality were not.

At the time these photographs were taken, both of these exquisite Ferrari 250 MMs were owned by the same gentleman, David B. Smith of Bellevue, Washington. Coincidentally, it is believed that these same two cars raced against one another in 1953 at the Targa Florio and the Mille Miglia.
29 Feature The Story of Peter Monteverdi - a Swiss Ferrari Enthusiast
Ferraris in the Life of One Gentleman

Marcel Massini

Marcel Massini Collection


Peter Monteverdi comes to mind to most of us when we think of exotic sports cars built in the 1960-70s, and he also recently received some press for this involvement in a Formula One venture, but his life in Switzerland has been always very much involved with Ferraris, even to the extent that he was the Ferrari importer for Switzerland for many years.
34 Servizio Keeping your Ferrari well suspended
Hooking it up... make your Ferrari perform as it should...

Whether you are a top Formula One driver or a Ferrari club member at a Ferrari club track event, the only parts of your car which connect it to the ground and allow "everything to happen" are the contact patches of your four tires as they touch the road surface.
38 Corse Personalities are prominent as winter testing continues...
It has been an interesting time at Ferrari, and a busy one, too. The old days of the winter "lull" are gone, and Grand Prix racing is now a 365 day business. It's a hard job, but someone must do the work, and you hear few if any complaints from the men in the racing department at Maranello.
