I had this collection of pictures i took in my visit to the Galleria Ferrari at Maranello in august 2007, so i decided to upload them though they are a bit old.. Sorry for the poor shots quality. I have to say that i'm a better photographer today.My biggest disappointment was the absence of the F40 at that time. But it was a great pleasure to see cars like the Dino, the 250 GTO and the old F1's.. The cars are going to be presented in a chronological order. So take your time and enjoy the visit!

GT's and race prototypes
It's interesting to see how the road cars got heavier and more powerful through the years..

And that was the end of our visit to the Galleria Ferrari. It was really nice to be at maranello and to see all those ferraris. I hope you liked this little visit too. Talk to you soon!

(*) after all the researches i did, including the Ferrari official website, i found a nearly identical model called the 275 S. However, there are some differences that make me still have some doubt about the name of the car. So once i become sure, i'll add the technical specifications. I hope you'll be able to help me with this one.
