I fell in love with "her" already at the official launch at the 2003 Frankfurt Auto Show. In 2006 we acquired one and debut at apulian Coppa Selva di Fasano.
The setup and adaptation work to the hill-climb races were long and tiring, but it has paid off and the Ferrari Racing Collection dossier on newsstands now documenting them.
