VIDEO: Inside Maranello

Here’s a relaxing video to start your week. There’s no words, just soothing music as you are taken on a video tour of Ferrari’s factory in Maranello. Perhaps it would have been better if they followed one car from start to finish. But that’s just being picky!

A day in the Swiss Alps with a Ferrari F40

There’s a little bit too much talking in this video from Evo, but seeing as the subject matter is the truly awesome Ferrari F40 it’s worth listening to.

More curves than Scarlett Johansson

And just as beautiful. This is the Ferrari 330 P4. Petrolicious took on the enviable task of filming the car and having Nick Longhi, a Ferrari Corso Pilota instructor, tell us what it’s like to drive and a bit about the car’s history. Crafted in 1967, the 330 P4 was built during the height of […]

“I am a Ferrari F40 specialist”

The title of this piece is a quote from a chap called John Pogson. He’s a mechanic (and a bit more) who owns Italia Autosport and, yes, he specialises in Ferrari F40s and most things from Maranello. John’s quote above might sound like the words of an arrogant man who doesn’t offer his time lightly. […]
