16 Lettere Ferrari 348 Barchetta catches everyone's fancy

John Sinkgraven

Also seen at the 1994 Spa Ferrari Days was the 348 "Barchetta", s/n 84778. Owner Guy Audebert took a damaged 348 tb, and designed this new body. S.E.R.A. (Société d'Etudes et de Réalizations Aérodynamiques) made the patterns for the body, AMC made the body panels in polyester, and MEGA improved the chassis and carried out the final assembly.

The Pinin recovered and remembered

In 1980 Pininfarina celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of the foundation of the company by Battista Farina.
As part of the celebration of this event, they presented the Ferrari "Pinin" at the Turin Motor Show, in silver with a sumptuous leather interior. Motive power was provided by a front mounted Boxer engine.

How do you get to Carnegie Hall? Practice, practice, practice.
How do you put on the perfect Ferrari show? Spend ten years refining and polishing the event.
Pietro Castiglioni and his team have got it dead on. It all came together at the Reading Country Club on May 15 - a field of 78 Ferraris, a costumed Italian folk dance troupe, a low pass flyover by a twin jet helicopter that finally touched down on the lawn.

22 Notizie The ultimate model car?
The Ferrari 312 PB of Paul Scerri

Keith Bluemel


During a visit to Retromobile, the long established classic car show in Paris last February, a French friend, Richard Garcia, beckoned to enquire whether I had seen the Ferrari model on the Auto Passion / ATS Elevators stand. Approaching the stand we found a crowd surrounding a display feature, from which emanated the noise of an engine, with exhaust smoke rising from amidst the bodies congregated around it.
24 Letteratura Cavalleria volume one: Ferrari 512 S&M by Christian Huet
Three new books from the Cavalleria series on three great Ferraris
A close look at these great sports cars built for international racing in 1970 and 1971. Beloved by both the Factory and privateers, the development of the 512S is closely detailed, followed by a race by race description of their place in Ferrari history.
A special section has s/n 1014 photographed in exquisite detail!
This book is the final word on the 512 S&M for years to come.
24 Letteratura Cavalleria volume two: Ferrari 312 P/B by Christian Huet
Three new books from the Cavalleria series on three great Ferraris
A comprehensive overview of these small, neat, blindingly fast prototype racers which swept to the World Sportscar Championship in 1972, and almost again in 1973. It was planned like a military campaign, and utilized some of the greatest designers, engineers, and drivers in Ferrari history. The drama is recounted in this book, plus a special detailed four color look at one of the best - s/n 0896.
26 Letteratura Cavalleria volume three: Ferrari 500 F2 by Doug Nye
Three new books from the Cavalleria series on three great Ferraris
Come back to the early 1950s, when these powerful little Lampredi four cylinders overwhelmed all corners in international Grand Prix racing. They were pre-eminent and solidified Ferrari's emerging reputation.
Following their story, and gaze on one particular example, s/n 0186, in startling four color detail.
30 Feature Ferrari 275 GTB, s/n 6885 GT - A history and an appraisal
Part Three: the big race, and s/n 6885 GT is not left wanting...

Marc Sonnery

Eric delle Faille

So to Le Mans, the big one, in which our beautiful GTB laid its claim to fame. It was not to be in scarlet, however, as it was entered by the Ecurie Francorchamps' team, the Belgian Ferrari representative, and it received a stunning yellow livery. In the Sarthe classic, s/n 6885 was to be driven by Willy Mairesse and seasoned veteran Jean Blaton, nicknamed "Beurlys" for family and business reasons.

Part Four: a puzzle remains - what truly was s/n 6885 GT at Le Mans? ...

Now, what about the comments made by some that the GTB was really a works entry at Le Mans, being so well prepared and arguing too that Mairesse had driven works cars earlier in the year? Is it related to the friction between "l'equipe nationale Belge" and "l'ecurie Francorchamps," the latter the entrant of s/n 6885, the former being themselves backed by Shell, and both competing within the Shell Berre challenge which offered large prize funds?
36 Feature Ferrari 365 California Spyder, s/n 9849
The ultimate boulevard cruiser!

Marcel Massini

David Male

The Ferrari 365 California series of Ferrari models holds a certain fascination for many Ferrari enthusiasts, and it is an odd fascination in that the car is generally consigned to that part of Ferrari history reserved for "interesting... but not central to the Ferrari story." It was not inventive, it held no surprises, it had no great tale to tell, in and of itself. The lives of the fourteen examples were also unremarkable - no racing, no murders, no movie stars.

Robert Pease

Sidell Tilghman, Dave Sweers

Our last IMSA update many issues ago was titled, "Where have the Ferrari's gone?" Well they're back, and in a big way!
Last year Ferrari contracted with Dallara to build the Tony Southgate designed F333 SP, which marks the return of Ferrari to sports car racing after a twenty year absence. Determined to have a successful debut, Road Atlanta, a sprint race, was chosen to be the car's first race appearance.

About 250 Ferraris were present on the whole and about 150 were entered in the different races: Ferrari Class A (standard cars and road tires), Ferrari Class B (modified cars and racing tires), Pirelli Maranello Challenge, 348 Challenge (Germany), 348 Challenge (Italy), and 348 Challenge (West Europe). On Saturday, six races were run under the sunshine on a dry track, but on Sunday, eight races were run under a persistent rain and a wet track.

Maranello Ferrari Challenge continues as before, but faces a challenge of its own

John Swift, Willy Henderickx, Pierre Goossens

John Sinkgraven

That great racing series in England, the Pirelli Maranello Ferrari Challenge, is off to a great start again, pitting late model Ferraris against one another in two classes, modified and original, at some of Britain's greatest and most nostalgic racetracks.
It has been a great success, and much credit must go to the English Ferrari Owners Club, since for many years the only GT Ferrari racing to be seen anywhere in the world on a consistent basis was in England in the Challenge.
