Having recently celebrated its centenary, the car community is now troubled by the potential loss of the company, as Bertone enters bankruptcy proceedings.

I turned the key one notch, my heartbeat quickened as the fuel pump hummed to life. Then I stepped on the gas pedal a few times to prime the carburetors and turned the ignition key completely. As always after a long slumber, the starter had a bit of trouble firing up the engine. But finally it began to groan and start. It smelled a bit, but it ran.

"One of the best days of my life was picking up this Fiat Dino Coupe 2.0 in the underground parking of the Place Vendome, Paris. We agreed on price and I finally left around 7:00 on a Saturday night. After only four or five kilometers, steam started pouring out of the bonnet, temperatures soared, and I was a little perturbed. It wasn't my first classic, though, so I wasn't completely surprised."

Everything here is fabricated with respect to the original part, assembly, and technique. Even if the staff uses, when exceptional precision is needed, the most advanced methods and tools, preference is given to traditional craft skills. The men who work here more strongly resemble artisans than mechanics. It is the attention to details and the direct experience that make this place different from a common restoration garage.

It's fairly common knowledge that road cars were always a means for Enzo Ferrari to finance his racing program.

The gesture or theme of the car can be described by two lines: first, the sweep of the rear fender beginning at the front bumper cut-line and second, the hood leading into the fast windshield rising over the large, open greenhouse. Moving the Berlinetta Boxer's radiator from the front into two rear-mounted radiators allowed designers to experiment with the modified mid-engined proportions that the Ferrari Testarossa is now so famous for.

As I watch those Alfas and Ferraris cross the block in Paris this weekend, I will be thinking back fondly on that stunning assembly of cars in the Italian countryside. In restoring and preserving his cars, Francesco accepted nothing less than excellence. I know that the lucky individuals with the winning bids this weekend will also appreciate the cars' former caretaker for his uncompromising standards.

Like most boys of a certain era, I had an Alpine stereo poster above my bed that featured a later Lamborghini Countach, shot from the rear so that the massive rear wing was the most prominent feature. I'm thinking of buying the real thing but recently other cars have also caught my gaze. I’m a bit embarrassed to admit that they’re not as pure as the Countach that I lust for.

The Mazda Cosmo 110S hit American shores in 1967, along with several other Japanese sports cars. Realizing that the key to serious growth lay in wealthier Western markets, all the major Japanese companies were trying to expand their brands with halo cars.

In real estate, location is everything, and surely there’s none better than a centuries-old castle among vineyards outside of Modena, Italy. What lies inside Castello di Panzano Castelfranco Emilia transcends even this bucolic location. Collezione Righini is one of the finest private automotive collections in the world, housing several landmark Alfas including Tazio Nuvolari’s 8C 2300, and the very first car that Enzo Ferrari built after departing Alfa Romeo.
