Usually, in the course of my day job testing modern cars, I am happy to find myself in a minority of one. Reassured, even. If I go somewhere, drive something and am none too impressed, when I hear colleagues gushing over it later, I don’t fear I’ve misjudged it, I give thanks that my critical faculties appear to remain intact. I’m not saying they’re wrong and I’m right, for there can only be shades of opinion, but I do at least retain the confidence to believe my opinion is as valid as theirs and am therefore not afraid to say so. But with old cars it’s different. How do you know that anything more than a few months old continues to behave as its manufacturer intended? How can you therefore say…

derek bell

His name is inextricably linked with one marque, and it isn’t Ferrari. Derek Bell MBE is a Porsche man. Everyone knows that. Four of his five victories in the 24 Heures du Mans were racked up with the works team, after all. The thing is, the man himself sees it differently. Bell made his Grand Prix debut driving a red car from Maranello. His maiden start in a sports-prototype was also aboard a Ferrari. Throw in ownership of a 275 GTB/4, Daytona and more recent fare and it is abundantly clear that he’s a hardcore Ferrari fan. Now in his eighth decade, and still competing as and when the mood takes him, this racing silverback was relatively late to the party. He was 23 when he first ventured trackside in March…

ferrari’s five-year plan

FERRARI USED a Capital Markets Day at Maranello on September 18 to give investors an insight into its plans for the next five years. It revealed more about its forthcoming SUV, which has the working title of ‘Purosangue’ (thoroughbred) and which Ferrari still insists isn’t an SUV; it announced there would be an ‘elegant’ new GT inspired by classic models of the past, and it took the wraps off a pair of radical 800bhp barchettas, the Monza SP1 and SP2, which launch the company’s new ‘Icona’ (icon) line. Many companies use Capital Markets Days to give stakeholders the opportunity to meet the management, who in this instance included Ferrari’s new CEO, Louis Camilleri, previously board chairman at tobacco giant Philip Morris International. He was already on Ferrari’s board, too, and took…

Spitzley/Zagari Archive prints From £350 | spitzleyzagari.com In 1966, Franco Zagari waded into a flooded barn near Modena to retrieve photographs taken by the late Dr Ferruccio Testi – and thank goodness he didn’t mind getting his trousers wet. Among Testi’s glass plates, which are now part of the Spitzley/Zagari Archive, were some of the most revealing and beautiful images from Ferrari’s early history. All of those images are now available to buy as limited-edition silver gelatin prints, but this is our favourite of the lot: an almost effervescent shot of Enzo celebrating victory in the 1932 Coppa Acerbo with spectators, mechanics and a Champagne-swigging Tazio Nuvolari. Rado Ceramica Automatic £2010 | rado.com Rado’s scratch-resistant ceramic watches have always been pretty much impervious to the ravages of time, but this sleek iteration of the Ceramica,…

ferraris for four

‘A manual 456 is something of a rarity. Rarer still is a manual 612’ Just the thought of owning a V12 Ferrari feels indulgent. Realising the ambition tends to depend on being well-heeled – or being prepared to take a sizeable gamble on a running restoration, where the cars gets fixed as it goes wrong. But there are a couple of ways of having a useable and reliable V12 in your life for a reasonable sum. Sure, they’re fourseaters rather than cosy berlinettas or breezy spiders, but then, being able to take the family along might well be the clincher. They are the 456 GT and 612 Scaglietti. The older and arguably more handsome of the pair is the 456. Launched in 1993, it was the first all-new car of the Montezemelo…
