10 Modellismo Ferraris come to life in the hands of Andy Mathews

Michael Furman


Building a scale model of a Ferrari automobile is a favorite pastime of many Ferraristi, and while for a good number it is little more than an engrossing hobby, pitting one's skill and patience against an unbuilt collection of disparate parts, for a select few artisans out there, however, this passion rises to a level of fine craft, indeed, for some, to fine art.

18 Letteratura Ferrari by Vignale
by Marcel Massini
A name that crops up often in Cavallino, and in other Ferrari publications around the world, is Marcel Massini. He is one of about a dozen people around the globe who are the recognized Ferrari number crunchers, the men who collect not only serial numbers, but also distinct bits of current and historical data on the individual Ferraris as well.
18 Letteratura All the world's 1/43 scale Ferraris - Volume 1: Sport, Prototype, 250 GT and GTO models
by Daniele and Jean-Marie Lastu
This is a true labor of love, and we must day at the outset that we are impressed. In this one volume, you have every 1/43 scale Ferrari non-F1 racing car known to man, and the way it's all presented makes for an excellent stroll through Ferrari competition history and Ferrari model history.
19 Letteratura The Legends of Motorsport
by Dave Friedman
Books of motoring racing photographs arrive at regular intervals, and the quality varies to an enormous degree. Sometimes they are simple paeans to the photographer's own vision, which is not necessarily your vision or mine. And then, as luck would have it in this sometimes luckless world, you'll find a book with exceptional photos in content and composition.

One of the many clients who bought Enzo Ferrari's early street cars so the Factory could go racing

Marcel Massini

Marcel Massini Collection


Enzo Ferrari's real interest always was racing. For him, racing was a time honored way to improve the breed, but even forty years ago this was a ridiculously expensive occupation. That's why Ferrari's early buyers of means were the bread and butter for his Factory; he needed prominent supporters for his young firm. Road cars were built out of necessity to finance the racing program and to satisfy the many distinguished clients who sought fast personal transport.

A close up look at this ultimate street car that became the ultimate track car

John Sinkgraven


Yes, not only does the bodywork of the F40 LM look all different than that of the F40 to your eagle eye, it "is" all different, in size, shape and construction. Everything is dimensionally smaller by several millimetres, and there are several nips and tucks to improve airflow.

Opening race of the 1957 "Temporada" was, as usual, the "Argentine Grand Prix", for which the Buenos Aires Autodromo's Nº 2 variant was again used. The Scuderia entered no less than six Lancia-Ferraris. This was not a particularly good race for the team to look back upon, as the results would show.

There's not much sheer volume to these cars once you take the body off. The V-12 engine bolted directly to the chassis tub, and by the mechanic standing nearby, you can get an idea of how small and compact these 3.5 liter twelve cylinder units really are.
