Ferrari is a Sight to (GT)C

By Petrolicious Productions / 29 Aug 2014

Several words come to mind when thinking of Ferraris. "Beautiful," "fast," and "amazing" are a few of them. "Gap-filler" is not on that list. However, the 330 GTC debuted as one at the 1966 Geneva Auto Show. It bridged the space between the 275 GTB Berlinetta and the 330 2+2 Coupe.

Pebble Beach's Best in Show Winner Represents a Monumental Shift

By Yoav Gilad / 22 Aug 2014 / 9 Comments Read More

In many ways, this year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance was just like every year prior. The blue-blazer-wearing, straw-hatted crowd strolled in as classical music gently wafted over the audience and manicured lawn. The OEMs occupied the lower-level suites in the lodge that allowed their guests to sit in style and avoid sullying their Tod’s. The coffee was warm and unburned, landscape foggy grey, and cars buffed to perfection...

To those that know, this always-affable and perfectly manicured gent is perhaps the most revered man in Ferrari design, responsible for almost a countless number of designs beginning with the Dino 206 and 246 GT all the way through the 575 Superamerica, amongst project management of many others.

Why The Ferrari 400i Is Collectable

Why The Ferrari 400i Is Collectable

The Collector is a weekly series produced in association with Gear Patrol.
The 400i shows the usual hopeful aspects of the period: pop-up headlamps, overly obvious five-spoke wheels, and a sleek, large-diameter, pre-airbag steering wheel. This Ferrari strove for elegance and largely achieved it. And despite the electronic fuel injection leading to a nine-percent drop to 310 horsepower (but a more favorable emissions test), the 400i went down the road with authority, no matter which transmission the 4.8-liter twelve was mated to.

Two Things Drove Ferrari from Sports Car Racing

Two Things Drove Ferrari from Sports Car Racing

Montezemolo says these and other restrictions detract from the Grand Prix experience, stating “No one wants to watch a driver save gas or tires. They want to see them push from here to there. It's sport, yes, but also a show.” With driver Fernando Alonso dropping the flag at this year’s recent 24 Hours of Le Mans, Ferrari may be eyeing a return to sports-car racing, but why did it quit in the first place?

The Dino was interesting as it helped to launch the career of designer Leonardo Fioravanti. He had been at Pininfarina for about two years when he was allowed to design the 206 GT and frankly, his inexperience shows. Even as the world was turning away from the voluptuous forms of the post-war years, the 206 GT clung onto them.

The 911 has a race car feel and it's a little tinny, but light and quick. In terms of preference, the Porsche and the Ferrari are completely different worlds, and each has its own attributes. The Ferrari (a 550 Maranello) is big, refined and comfortable. It pulls like a D9 Caterpillar (big bulldozer)! It's a perfect blend of comfort and performance–a true gentleman's GT.

As much as any other car, the Ferrari 330 P4 is the embodiment and culmination of an entire era of racing. With its low-slung stance and voluptuous lines, it is also among the most visually stunning cars ever produced. Combine these factors and the word “icon” slips to the tip of one’s tongue.
