It’s hard to believe that this is our seventh Greatest Hits special edition but the first time we’ve devoted one to the world’s most famous marque, Ferrari. But we reckon it’s worth the wait.

Our new Ferrari Greatest Hits, on sale now, brings you almost 200 thick, glossy pages chronologically charting the history of this celebrated manufacturer, compiled from the last decade of Classic & Sports Car magazine.

It’s a mouth-watering prospect – not to mention a super stocking filler! Read on as we whet your appetite with a few highlights and share how you can get your hands on our latest special. 


166 and 212 Inter

Classic & Sports Car – 5 reasons you don't want to miss C&SC’s Ferrari Greatest Hits

We start, of course, at the beginning, following Ferrari’s transition from a racing team to a manufacturer of road cars with the 166 and 212 Inter.

Martin Buckley is on hand to chart the birth of the legend and shine a light on a pair of sometimes overlooked classic Ferraris – turn to page eight to start reading.


250GT Lusso

Classic & Sports Car – 5 reasons you don't want to miss C&SC’s Ferrari Greatest Hits

An evocative name but an under-appreciated model?

At least the gorgeous 250GT Lusso has never failed to charm aesthetically and from page 66 of C&SC’s Ferrari Greatest Hits James Page gets behind the wheel to reveal why this charismatic model is a wonderfully seductive grand tourer.


512

Classic & Sports Car – 5 reasons you don't want to miss C&SC’s Ferrari Greatest Hits

Our Ferrari Greatest Hits preview had to include a racer, and this 512 from page 140 is a pretty special one.

Taking it on track, Marc Sonnery experiences the Ferrari built to take on the Porsche 917 and benefits from Derek Bell’s insight on this spectacular V12 from a legendary era of sports-car racing.


288GTO

Classic & Sports Car – 5 reasons you don't want to miss C&SC’s Ferrari Greatest Hits

The car so good it justified the greatest name of all.

Alastair Clements drives this dream machine, the racer with no series to compete in that became Ferrari’s fastest road car. With bags of presence and a sonorous V8, don’t miss it from page 160. 


F40

Classic & Sports Car – 5 reasons you don't want to miss C&SC’s Ferrari Greatest Hits

We couldn’t fail to include this, could we?

Reminding us why the F40 remains the most exciting car to crack 200mph, James Page explores the timeless appeal and aggressively striking styling of one of the ultimate supercars.
