Dear readers, We begin this issue with a hands-on experience at the I Rally Catalunya Històric-RACC where, after a route lasting nearly 800 km, we were awarded the Trophy for the Oldest Car To Finish The Rally, thanks to the tireless “Blue Beauty”. As always, a magical experience thanks to a magical vehicle. From the classics to the most modern. We will get up to date with the latest from the Geneva Motor Show, such as the Ferrari 812 Superfast and the new Ruf “Yellow Bird”. We will also review some of the best current events, such as the Amelia Island Concours or the Goodwood Members’ Meeting, and will test some of the latest models on the market such as the Audi Q2, the Q7 e-tron quattro and the improved BMW…

pagani zonda c12

Born from the passion of a little boy, the Zonda C12 is the first Pagani supercar to be constructed at the atelier of San Cesario sul Panaro. The bodywork, inspired to the Silver arrows of the Mercedes C group, encloses the essence of an unmistakable wind, where art and science beautifully combine to create a unique symphony, fascinating and bewildering at the same time. And like a passionate lover, the melodious performance arises from the engine and gradually grows to a fascinating and vertiginous crescendo until blazing bright blue flames come spurting out from the 4 – stroke exhaust system. Despite the peculiar concept behind its design, the supercar features a fibre carbon monocoque and a Mercedes-Benz AMG engine that is capable of unleashing as much as 394 hp with a…

“our tireless supercar” at i rally catalunya historic

This was the first time the RACC had been in charge of a Classics Rally and, given its extensive experience in organising leading automobile events, the event looked sure to be a success. There was a broad scope for admissions: from 1947 to 1986. I opted for one of my favourite cars, which, unfortunately, I had not used for almost 2 years. A few days before the race, I decided to prepare the car and check that everything was working properly. Obviously it took some effort for it to start up after such a long period of lethargy, but when it did it afforded me a huge smile. I realised that the roadworthiness certificate was out of date, and when I went to renew it they found that the front brakes…

#1 FERRARI 812 SUPERFAST Ferrari presented the replacement of the harmonic F12. A much more radical car in both performance and design. Its 800 hp makes it the most powerful production Ferrari ever created in Maranello. Another excellent proposal from the Ferrari Design team headed by Flavio Manzoni. Its excavated surfaces channel the airflows to optimize the performance of this brutal machine that ultimately gives it character and muscle. A vehicle that thrills just by looking at it and makes both the child and the adult dream about it. Ferrari is special and the 812 Superfast as well. With a performance to remove the hiccups, it will be a tough beast to tame. If you have blood, you like Ferrari. And if not, you are surely dead. #2 RUF CTR 2017 “YELLOW BIRD” Undoubtedly one of…
