Museums>> Galleria Ferrari Part2

Ok let’s get straight in to part two of our visit to the Galleria Ferrari , with a tour of the next display area.

So we start our tour with the Enzo, Ferrari’s current top level supercar.

What do you think of this car? Is it ultimate Ferrari supercar ever?

Behind sits its immediate predecessor: the F50. Which ring your bell more?

I quite liked this display of F1 Wind Tunnel models.

By studying the details of each model you can get a sense of the evolution of the science of aerodynamics.

Plus the models are kinda cute!

Back when Enzo Ferrari ruled the roost at Ferrari, the company was all about engines; the chassis was always secondary. You can feel this lineage with the sheer number of engines on display in the museum. I swear there were probably more engines on display than cars!

Here’s a rare 2000 550 Barchetta, one of 448 produced. Behind sits the new Ferrari California.

This is Ferrari’s new 2+2 hard top convertible.

What do you think? An entire new production line as been constructed for the California.

Apparently 5000 of these cars will be produced over the course of the next two years…

Which will double the amount of Ferraris built per year.

Let’s move on to the next set of cars.

The famous Dino.

AFAIK this was the first mid-engine Ferrari road car in history of the company. Some people are big fans of this machine, but I’d take a Lamborghini Muira any day of the week over this car!… For me it’s a bit too feminine.

Now this is more like it… A car associated with so many aspects of the 1980s: the Testarossa.

The Testarossa went through a period of being rather uncool, but I think the time has come again for this to top the “most desirable” super car lists. What is uncool always becomes cool again right?

Ahhh yes… the 288 GTO…

Everything is just so perfect about this car. It’s my top pick of all the cars in this room. What about you? If you could choose one of these cars which would it be?

This wind tunnel model of the 599 GTB Fiorano lurks around the corner. Kinda cool to see these production models floating around….

There are also a couple non-Ferrari cars on display as part of a special “l’Automobile Italiana” exhibition. This is a 1939 Alfa Romeo 8C. It’s quite a sculptural machine.

Next to it sits a 1948 Maserati A6 1500…. a real classic I suppose but my latin blood boils for newer Italian machines….

OK I’ll be back soon with a final installment from the Galleria Ferrari. But the time we’re done here you’ll have seen all there is to see at the museum!

here in Turin you can spot a lot of Maserati - Quattroporte and Gran Turismo @.@

I thought the FFX was Ferrari's top super car, it make the Enzo look like a baby.

3

the FXX isn't a supercar really, it's more like some kind of psuedo-racecar. plus it strikes me more as a 'variant' of the enzo?

4

Love the new Ferrari California. Of the more recent Ferrari's it's probably my favourite, but i'd still take that 288 GTO or the Dino over it.

5

F40 for me any day of the week

6

F50 > Enzo

California looks quite good but its rump's a little big.

I would also choose the GTO out of the cars in that room. The thing looks incredible.

7

the writing on this post was kinda uninspired. looks like you are not into ferraris. hahaha.

8

I knew I misplaced my F50 lol

that california looks sicc

9

The only Ferrari Ive ever driven was a Dino. Not so feminine when youre behind the wheel... Still, I agree with you about the 288 GTO. Stunner. The Evoluzione version looks a bit funny - kind of like a melted F40.

10

I would take the 288GTO!

11

The F40 will always be the ultimate ferrari, regardless to whatever else they make.

12

Well I decided long ago that I would never buy a Ferrari because they are just too stereotypical supercar for my tastes; so I guess if I bought one it'd be for cruising in which case I would take a 365 GTB/4 a.k.a Daytona.

13

Keep the Ferraris comming. I will have the Enzo in this part.

14

I'd take either the Dino or Testarossa!

15

After reading the Pagani story, Ferrari just cannot compare.



GTO is probably their best bet for a car that truly has character and soul like a Zonda

16

I think young people nowdays must work on keeping their own culture by preserving national values.

This could be achieved by keeping these values in a museum.

The Politechnics University Museum site was realized by a few students beeing published temporarily here:

http://muzeuupb.uuuq.com">http://muzeuupb.uuuq.com.

It represents a science museum in where we can find varius hystorical technical models.

For improovments of the site wich is just a scale model you can write us a message on the

Thanks for your support.

F355 is my choice

18

Teh california.. i thought it was ugly..



but it grew on me lately.. And Dat A**. hehehe.



i really love how the rear looks.

19

California is a good car, but a shit Ferrari.

.

Fake tailpipes for God's sake! Sort it out!!

20

Anybody else think the California looks like a 370Z??

21

If you'd believe it, I actually had the chance to visit Lamborghini and Ferrari. It's a day that I'll never forget. I remember seeing these cars and going into sensory overload!

22

Ultimate Ferrari supercar for me is the F40; I've had a poster of it in my room for most of my life. I love the classic ones more though; the Dino has to be one of the most beautiful cars built, and probably THE most beautiful Ferrari road car. Funny thing is, of all the cars in this post, I'd most like to have that Alfa 8C; it is more soulful than any other car in this post!
