Hoping to land a job at Ferrari after graduation? The company's been known to recruit straight out of college, but your best bet may be to enroll at the Enzo Ferrari Faculty of Engineering at the University of Modena e Reggio Emilia.
To help celebrate Ferrari's 60th birthday this year, the lads at Top Gear decided to give the Maranello firm's fans a present. The July edition of Top Gear magazine is one of those multiple cover offerings that will have some collectors gobbling up every different version. And this being the 60th anniversary of Enzo's company, there are 60 different covers in all. To help save you a few quid, Top Gear has thoughtfully scanned each cover and presented them in an online gallery for all to see free
We just got word that Piero Lardi Ferrari, son of Ferrari founder Enzo Ferrari, has earned his engineering degree at the age of 62. The graduation was marked with a celebration inside the Ferrari factory test circuit of Fiorano. The other employees of the company who were in attendance apparently joked that he now has almost as much intelligence as they do. Perhaps new designs from a true Ferrari family member are in the company's future.
Ask any red-blooded Ferrari tifosi and they'll recognize the significance of the year 1947. That was the year the magic started. It was the year that il commendatore, Enzo Ferrari, started selling the first cars that bore his name. Many world championships, street car accolades, and happy customers later, and the company is still going strong. And now that the calendar is showing 2007, it's time for Ferrari's 60th birthday celebration.
We spoke to organizers of the "Runway for Life" benefit for St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital over the weekend to get an update on the Enzo auction, and it's safe to say that the car did its job. According to our source, the Enzo sold for $1,150,000 to Luxury Motors, a dealership located in Downer's Grove, Illinois.
An anonymous and very generous benefactor has donated a Ferrari Enzo to St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital. The car, a US-spec 2003 model, will be auctioned off on Friday, September 15 at the annual "Runway for Life" event, a star-studded celebrity fashion gala taking place at the Beverly Hilton. Naturally, all paperwork, bespoke luggage, etc. is included with the supercar, which has a mere 1,300 miles on the odometer. It's red, of course.
Well, the Ferrari Enzo continues to appreciate in value, and not only due to it's limited production and hyper-exoticness. Some Enzos fall victim to their Schuey-wannabe owners, who learn too late that owning an Enzo and having the skills required to handle one are two very different things.
