1955 Ferrari 121LM Spider by Scaglietti – RM Sotheby’s Monterey Preview

Only in Monterey would crummy roadside motels be filled with Ferrari’s and Lambo’s! And even around the corner from Pebble Beach, these special cars (and people!) only come out once a year. RM Sotheby’s auction this week will be action-packed.  A favorite presale machine that deserves all the spotligght in the car world? This 1955 Ferrari 121LM Spider. It is the third of four ever made.  It is a shrouded-cockpit, single-seat racer in iconic French Blue.  A shrouded roll hoop behind the RHD steering setup is glamourous, as is the tiny perspex wind deflector.  Helmet or at least goggles definitely …

NOVITEC N LARGO 48 Pic07

2017 NOVITEC N-Largo Ferrari 488 Widebody

If you ever email us here at CRD and really want your message read… here is a shortcut and sure-fire way to make it happen. Include the phrase N-LARGO somewhere in the subject header!  I would spit out my coffee and run to a desktop to see the latest Novitec widebody in highres detail. This latest example based on the Ferrari 488 and 488 Spider is certainly no exception.  This new 488 N Largo is a full 5.5 inches wider than the stock 488 at the back fenders. Slightly less extreme up front — but still shockingly different in appearance …

Never-Driven 2014 Ferrari LaFerrari Joins RM Sothebys Villa Erba 2017 Sale

Time flies! LaFerrari felt so definitely like the BEST EVER big Ferrari during its glorious rollout.  How could something ever surpass this? This what happens with every real homerun Ferrari, of course.  Think F40, not F50. And of course, now we have the FXX and the FXX-K, among others. This LaFerrari is as brand new as it was when delivered three years ago to the month.  Less than 150 miles in total.  Ever. Black wheels and roof, rosso corsa paintwork.  All options like noselift and telemetry.  This car has been living in the Netherlands since being sold in Italy. A …

1950 Ferrari 166 MM 212 Export Uovo 8

1950 Ferrari 166 MM/212 Export “Uovo” by Fontana – RM Monterey 2017

Nothing will ever — ever — beat a Uovo Ferrari for its origin-story gravitas.  This, ladies and gentleman, is where it all began.  Where engineering and racing success started to propel road car sales.  And those road car sales eventually funding the most successful, most desired car brand in the world. This stunner will go across the auction block this August in Monterey, California adjacent to the Pebble Beach concours extravaganza. Estimates of what the sale price will be?  We’d predict in the 2-4 million dollar mark. Far less that the peak Ferrari values, but also far more original.  The …

Gallery: 2017 Ferrari GTC4 Lusso T in 33 Gorgeous Photos

The fastest breadvan ever created!  Hard to get a sense of the car’s beauty from up front, even in these Tuscan landscapes.  The tail is a much bigger hit.  Its individual LED lightpods are deeply 3D and stylish, hidden under a strong tail spoiler crease. The profile is hot for all wagon and shooting brake fans.  Would love to see it with tinted windows! 2017 Ferrari GTC4 Lusso T

The 10 Best Ferraris Ever Built

Universally held as the most illustrious auto marque on the planet, the brand that Enzo Ferrari built is one of the oldest names in motorsports and one of the few automakers that can honestly call their cars works of art. But which Ferraris most truly represent the brand? Which are the best? It’s a difficult question to answer. In addition to their legendary style and performance, Ferrari builds many different models. It’s not uncommon for an exotic marque to limit production to only a single model. Lamborghini currently offers two, not counting convertibles. Ferrari offers seven, and while this wasn’t …

2017 Ferrari J50 is Japan-Only Special – Launch Party in 25 Photos

  Thought the F60 America was Fezza’s only nod to its global regions?  Think again! This new J50 celebrates the marque’s 50th year in the Japanese market.  Based on the 488 GTC, the J50 has unique design touches throughout and a very fresh nose design in particular.  Horizontally-aligned headlights are a big departure from the vertically-oriented lamps Ferrari has employed for its model range in recent years. One thing is sure with these ultra-exclusive specials: resale and collectible cache second to none. Of course, those dreaming of a J50 outside of Japan should note that even an export will still …

1962 Ferrari 268 SP by Fantuzzi – RM Monterey 2016 Highlight

One of the first-ever midengine Ferrari racers went across the block in Cali this August. Looks like it was a no-sale, curiously. A high bar was surely set: we’d estimating the reserve was around $25-million.  Perhaps 35. So it is still seeking a new home.  Home for its freaky beauty, snarky nose intakes and special-prototype LMP1 provenance. Sold or not, we’re elated to see this 1962 268SP in the sunlight in all its glory. RM Sotheby’s Monterey 2016 Lot 240 1962 Ferrari 268 SP by Fantuzzi Chassis no. 0798 Engine no. 0798 Gearbox no. 6 Estimate Available Upon Request Please note that Internet …

2017 LaFerrari APERTA Goes Topless in Paris

First live look at the hottest topless Ferrari in decades! A softtop and carbon hardtop panel are both provided to the very select owners of this new LaFerrari Aperta.  Chassis stiffness and aero upgrades ensure the same performance as the hardtop variant… but now with added aural pleasure included — gratis. The exclusivity of the model will also provide some added value to its buyers.  No production cap is cited yet by Ferrari, but is likely to be less than a tenth of the 500-plus production run of the LaFerrari so far.  A one-model-year offering is a sure thing, just …
