About this issue

When Ferrari became a carmaker in 1947, Europe was still rebuilding after WWII. Into this challenging times, Enzo Ferrari launched the 125 S, powered by a 1.5L V12 engine with the main goal of funding his interest in motorsports.

Fast-forward 70 years, and the Prancing Horse has become one of the most-recognisable brands on the planet, with a mouth-watering garage of cars past and present that continues to excite everybody from enthusiastic children to billionaire collectors. It speaks volumes that seven of the most-expensive cars ever sold at auction are Ferraris.

But as Ferrari celebrates moving into its eighth decade, 2017 is set to be 12 months full of special editions, taking in more than 60 countries for surprise events.

There’s no denying, that the special editions are eye-catching. Several were launched at last year’s Paris Motor Show, including the "Stirling" F12 Berlinetta inspired by the 250 GT Berlinetta SWB driven by Stirling Moss; The "Schumacher", a 488 GTB that draws on the F2003-GA Formula One car that Michael Schumacher drove to the World Championship in 2003; and The "Steve McQueen" California T in the spirit of the 1963 250 GT Berlinetta Lusso driven by the iconic American actor.

Lean back and enjoy some of the most iconic Ferraris ever built and definitely some of the most interesting cars on the market right now.
