Ferrari was one of the prominent brands at the 2015 Techno Classica Essen. A wide range of models from the 1960s to 2000s were present and attracted large crowds. A bit disappointing was the fact that a lot of booths had their cars cramped together to put as much cars on display as possible. It’s just a pity to see an Enzo squeezed between some more “normal” cars. But those are the economics nowadays I guess. Because of the sheer amount of Ferrari’s I’m going to post some pictures of my personal favourites. I hope you also like them.
First of all, a beautiful family portrait of an F50, F40 and a 288 GTO. A sight you can hardly resist. To be honest the F50 is the least attractive for me. A bit too organic styled compared to the F40 and GTO. And my preference is also more towards coupés than a convertibles. But nevertheless an impressive view, not?
Next is a 1969 365 GTB/4, commonly known as “Daytona”. A thoroughbred GT that blends style and power in a gorgeous design. In burgundy red the car radiates a hint of prestige, worthy of such a great classic. With only 9,000km I was afraid to ask the price…
This 1976 308 GTB “Vetroresina” made a profound impression. Not because of its fibreglass body, making it one of the most sought after 308s. No … oh well, maybe a bit 😉 …seriously, the main reason is because the design is so elegant, with each line contributing to the powerful shape that is instantly recognised as a Ferrari, even by people who are not interested in cars.
And last but not least a Ferrari Testarossa, one of the ultimate 80s super cars, which still gathers adoring looks. A childhood dream of many visitors, myself included.
