the Daytona popped over the brow and everyone in the lay-by swivelled to see it. the terrific noise of its V12, combined with its body language, told us in an instant that its driver was having a ball. It rushed past us on the brakes, its deceleration punctuated by precise flares of double-declutch downshifts, and I turned to its owner, who was smiling broadly, and said: ‘I think he’s enjoying that.’ ‘Good,’ he replied. ‘that’s how it’s meant to be driven.’ andrew Frankel, who was driving and who has written this issue’s cover story, hopped out of the Daytona simmering with enthusiasm. ‘Could you hear it coming?’ he asked, looking a little crestfallen when we said only when it appeared over the brow. I knew the road he’d just driven, its…

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…

pista gets spider treatment

Following hot on the heels of the 488 Pista comes the Pista Spider, the latest addition to the line of ‘Special Series’ Ferraris that features enhanced versions of regular models. Revealed at the Concours d’Elégance at Pebble Beach in California, the Spider is powered by the same 710bhp 3.9-litre twin-turbo V8 as the coupé and apart from the folding hardtop is distinguished by unique striping and diamond-cut, 20in forged alloys. For the first time, one-piece carbonfibre wheels that are 20 per cent lighter are offered as one of many lightweight options and will be available for the coupé, too. in standard trim, the Spider weighs 50kg more than the berlinetta, but Ferrari says it is capable of identical benchmark performance – zero to 100km/h (62mph) in just 2.85sec. the extra mass…

the good, the bad, and the… challenging

‘The one-off was predictably not to everybody’s taste’ AppEAlINg Though IT IS to imagine ourselves as news-breakers in the great journalistic tradition, we are well aware that no reader needs a quarterly magazine published in october to tell them what happened in August. You already know that 250 gTo chassis 3413gT became the most expensive car sold at auction when it changed hands for $48,405,000 at the RM Sotheby’s Monterey event. We won’t dwell on the result for too long, then, particularly since the number felt both ‘right’ in light of recent gTo transactions and somewhat preordained: those who perused the more text-heavy pages of the catalogue will have noticed that a minimum price had been guaranteed for 3413gT. There was no such certainty where other big-ticket Ferraris were concerned, though, and between…
