On sale 7th December
How’s this for a striking livery? Ferraris in bright red with blue stripes and blue wheels. There’s a fascinating story behind this Maranello Concessionaires racing livery, told via a thunderous Daytona that raced at Le Mans, and two tribute acts: a 296 GTB and Monza SP2. We head to Mugello for more Ferrari action, witnessing the debut of the 499P Modificata, the customer version of the LMH racer. We celebrate the end of a glorious era with two Italian super-stallions: the 510hp Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio and 580hp Maserati Ghibli Trofeo – but which is best? On the Alfa theme, we test a superb evocation of the racing Alfetta GTV Turbodelta by CSR. Three versions of the Fiat Ritmo/Strada face off in a group test, including the legendary Abarth 130TC. And speaking of Abarth, we pit the new 500e against the editor’s own rorty 595 Competizione. Oh, and we also have newcomers to the editorial fleet, plus reports from events featuring Ferrari, Alfa Romeo and more. Get your copy now!
