Alessandro Stefanini


The general shape of the F130 can be seen here, but we again warn you that there is much camouflage here as well. Indeed that F40 tail has the F40 imprint in it, and there is tape covering the nose and sides.
Rumors are rampant on when this will appear, and whether Ferrari will go racing with it.

Before looking into the World Championship "Temporadas" spanning from 1954 to 1960, let us rapidly go back even further, to when Giuseppe "Nino" Farina took his two liter G.P. Ferrari to victory in the 1949 Rosario Grand Prix - run on this Argentinian up-country city's street layout - and scored the marque's first win down here, at the incredibly low average of 48.3 mph, due to the very damp prevailing conditions.

Light and fast, and powered by the soon to be very famous three liter V-12, s/n 2095 GT had several good years of competition in the hands of Dr. Agberico Cacciari. It has had several recent good years of competition in the hands of Jerry Lynch.
