Ferrari’s Beauty Queen Highlighted in Cavallino #203

One of the best-looking Ferraris ever made (and one of the best-looking cars ever made), the 250 GT/L Lusso has won great praise over the years for its simple elegant lines. Cavallino’s well-known salon photographer Jerry Wyszatycki engaged a silver Lusso for you, for an intimate photo-shoot to showcase its inherent charm. The results are a study in aesthetic accomplishment. To accompany the images, the text is by famed historian Alan Boe. A sample: “Trace the Lusso’s profile from the tip of its nose, rising over the passenger compartment,...

Singapore GP: Fourth and Eighth Places for Scuderia Ferrari

Fernando Alonso finished just off the podium in fourth place after a great battle with the two Red Bull drivers, while his Scuderia Ferrari team-mate Kimi Raikkonen finished eighth, losing two places on the last two laps having to deal with seriously worn out tyres. There was drama before the start, as Nico Rosberg failed to get off the grid on the formation lap and had to start from pit lane. When the lights went out, Alonso got away very well, going second in the first corner. However, the Spaniard overshot as the track went left and...

Ambiance at the Goodwood Revival 2014

The huge weekend of September 12-14 has come and gone, as we noted in a previous post, and for three days, mammoth crowds watched some really great classic car races. But the cars aren’t the only attraction. Many years ago, the Revival instituted a “dress code” for the paddock, whereby entry was gained if you dressed up in period costume, notably in dress worn during the circuit’s heyday from 1948 to 1966. This proved very popular and soon spread to the spectator areas. The Goodwood Revival even published a manual on the correct dress,...

Ferraris at the Goodwood Revival 2014

The huge weekend of September 12-14 has come and gone, and it was a exciting as always. For three days, huge crowds can watch classic race cars actually race, and around a classic race track no less (and where some of these cars actually raced themselves).

That includes a lot of Ferraris, and many were present up against their former foes. And they do actually race! Incidents are not...
