1962 Ferrari 250 GTO at Cars and Coffee

While a large number of rare and beautiful cars made their way out to to the October’s Scuderia Southwest Cars and Coffee, a stunning blue ’62 Ferrari 250 GTO (serial number 3387) was without a doubt the star of the show. It’s the second GTO produced and was raced at Sebring in March of ’62 where it placed second over all and first in GT with Phil Hill and Oliver Gendebien behind the wheel. It later raced at Le Mans in June of ’62 and then went on to race in NART and by a privateer after that and is one of very few GTOs raced as a factory team car. It’s been repainted a number of times since it was built and received a number of minor cosmetic changes at those times, but...

Technical Knockout! Jun21

Technical Knockout!

A Stunning Trio of Late Production Ferrari 512 Berlinetta Boxers The Ferrari Boxer first appeared at the 1971 Turin Motor Show with the introduction of the 365 GT4 BB. Designed as a competitor to Lamborghini’s Miura, it didn’t actually hit production until two years later, in 1973. Enzo Ferrari had long been a champion of the midengined layout, but was afraid buyers couldn’t handle such cars. That thinking changed in the late-sixties. Though never officially a Ferrari, the midengined Dino was an undeniable success and helped pave the way for what is now considered a staple in the exotic community, the midengined Ferrari road car. The Berlinetta Boxer was the first of these cars. Though the...

Numerous New Shoots

1994 Ferrari 512 TR The Ferrari 512TR is greatly reworked and improved compared to the earlier Testarossa to the point in which it is almost an entirely new car. With the 512TR the engine’s output has been increased to 423hp (~ 37-47hp more than the earlier Testarossa) through higher compression pistons, Nikasil cylinder liners, larger intake valves, a revised intake system, Bosch engine management and a revised exhaust system. This particular 512TR’s output has been further increased with a Capristo Level 3 exhaust. The 512TR’s handling has been greatly improved when compared to the Testarossa by repositioning the engine and gearbox along with lower profile tires, revised shocks and quicker...

Not Something You See Every Day

A Showcase of The Weird and Wild in Scottsdale, Arizona. Over the past couple years I’ve been attending local automotive events increasingly frequently and along the way I’ve seen and photographed quite a few cars and bikes that just make you scratch your head. Whether it’s “why?” or “how?” or just “huh?” one thing is certain, these things are unique. Vans and buses are a very popular subject for the weird and wild and often great for a laugh. This “1932 Ford Anniversary bus” recently sold at Barrett-Jackson for $130,000 and features a 454 big block, 871 blower, 14″ front brakes, 20×16″ rear wheels amongst other over-the-top...
