15 Feature 348 Serie Speciale
Ferrari introduces a special V-8 for the American market; styling changes and more power on hand

David Newhardt, Ferrari SpA


Just when you thought things were becoming really dull and depressing in the automotive world, and more particularly in the exotic car arena, what with the recession causing production plans to be scaled back, new projects to be put on hold, newly announced supercars to be canceled, to the point where we all had the very scary and unsettling feeling that the sports car as an object of technological wonder and visceral delight was slowly expiring altogether...
