It’s been nearly 30 years since his death, but Enzo Ferrari remains one of the most enigmatic and talked-about figures in all of automotive history. Hollywood has been trying to get a film about the life of “Il Commendatore” off the ground since at least the early 1990s, but now it looks like it’s finally happening…
Last week Variety reported that LA-based Cecchi Gori Pictures is trying to get a long-stalled biopic about Enzo Ferrari back on track. What should it be about and who should be in it?
There weren't that many Fiat Dinos built in the first place, but when you consider that there are three times as many Bertone coupés out there than Pininfarina spiders, this Fiat becomes truly special.
This is not Enzo Ferrari with a dead rabbit. It's Luigi Arcangeli, who slayed the animal with his Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 in Monza, 1931, not long before he met his own death at the wheel of an Alfa Romeo Tipo A.
Legendary racing driver, team manager, and company founder Enzo Ferrari is less well known for employing perhaps the most excellent big-belly disguise technique: the infamous 'formless large coat' defense.
If you only know the late Carroll Shelby for his tuner cars, you're missing an amazing story of how, during the mid-1960s, his little, nerd-filled race shop in Los Angeles helped Henry Ford II exercise his famous vendetta against Enzo Ferrari.

Derek Bell, the British racing driver who looks like Iggy Pop wearing Lionel Messi’s haircut, has won the 24 Hours of Le Mans five times. He was recently a guest on Motor Sport Magazine’s monthly podcast and explained what it was like to drive the Porsche 962 down the Mulsanne Straight in the rain:
Rather than let his wrecked Enzo go to waste, one owner has converted his rarer-than-filet-at-Peter-Luger Italian stallion into a 1,000 hp salt flat beast. When we said "Save The Enzos," this twin-turbo Ferrari Enzo was exactly what we meant.

Let's say you're Enzo Ferrari and it's the early 1970s. What are you going to drive? Well, you could go down to the factory and pick out a nice Daytona... or you could pay homage to your Fiat overlords and get a buzzy little 128.

Ah, Jim Glickenhaus. Ah, to be Jim Glickenhaus, the only man ever to produce a Basket Case movie and have Pininfarina scan his body for a perfect fit in a custom Enzo-based car. We met him briefly in Paris last fall and he turned out to be a very nice, personable dude, always willing and ready to drop some science.…
