Need some room?  
 
You want an exclusive Ferrari (as if not every Ferrari is exclusive!) but you also have two kids who are growing up fast... well, perhaps this is the answer: the 456 GT Venice Shooting Brake.
One of only six cars built by Pininfarina especially for the Sultan of Brunei - and the only one no longer in the collection of the Sultan, therefore the only car of its type available in the world.
It has only driven 900 miles, so it's a virtually brand new car. Built at a cost of one million dollars and now available at a fraction of that.

    All these cars belong to the Bosch collection. Further more he sells his Ferrari 412 T2 (s/n 164) from 1995. What a huge sell this is. What would be the reason to sell these beauties? Does John has set his eye to another project? Maybe he wants to obtain the F2004 that will be for sale at the Ferrari auction in Maranello next year?

    Reutemann back on track  
     
    The Argeninian Carlos Reutemann was this morning the guest at the Fiorano track. There the 62 year old former Ferrari driver in the 70s, drove in the F2004. Reutemann raced for Ferrari from 1976 to 1978 and won the Constructor Championship in 1977 and five F1 races.
    In total Reutemann completed 17 laps on the track, while Jean Todt watched him go. "It was an unforgettable experience," said Reutemann. "I want to thank Ferrari for having organized this test in a holiday day and for giving me the chance to experience this. I had a lot of fun. The car is very impressive, especially the engine power of the car."

    Schumacher at Champs Elysees  
     


    On Sunday the 5th December Michael Schumacher drove his F2004 on the Champs Elysees. Travelling down from the Arc de Triomphe to the Place de la Concorde was a parade with the Formula 1 world championship-winning F2004, an Enzo, a 575 Maranello, a 612 Scaglietti, a 360 Spider and an F430.

    The event was a tribute to the 2004 Formula 1 World Champions. The occasion also marks the sealing of an agreement between the French Ministry of Solidarity, Health and Family and the ICM (Institut de Cerveau et la Moelle epiniere), which numbers Jean Todt and Michael Schumacher amongst its patrons.
    After travelling around the Place de la Concorde, the Ferraris headed for the Ministry offices, where they meet the Minister, Philippe Douste-Blazy, the Director General of Public Assistance, Rose-Marie Van Lerberghe and the ICM President, Professor Gerard Saillant.
    The drivers: Michael Schumacher was at the wheel of the car that took him to his seventh World title, Ferrari managing Director Jean Todt was on board of the Enzo. Former Ferrari driver Rene Arnoux was behind the wheel of the 575 Maranello and alongside him will be film director Luc Besson, also an ICM patron. Another former Ferrari driver, Patrick Tambay drove the 612 Scaglietti, while Felipe Massa, the Scuderia's test driver in 2003, had the controls of the company's new 8 cylinder car, the F430.
    Tnx Alex! :)

    Ferrari to Dump Sauber?  
     
    Lately the difficulties between Sauber and Ferrari just pile up. In the last seasons Ferrari and Sauber were like four hands on one belly. They shared engine and gearbox, tires and even the testdriver (Felipe Massa). So for Ferrari that ment a lot of important test data.
    But Sauber announced at the end of last season that they would switch from Bridgetone to Michelin tyres, which ment that only Ferrari, Jordan and Minardi would run the Japanese rubber next year. And Michelin refused Massa to do any testwork for Ferrari anymore and even refused Sauber to use Fiorano.
    However, it doesn't seem that Ferrari is laying down to the facts. The contract between them and Sauber expires at the end of 2005 and so it seems that Sauber than has to find another engine. If this does happen, Ferrari are unlikely to be without an engine customer for long; the new "Midland" Team (backed by Russians, rather than Jasper Carrot) due to be on the grid in 2006, are reported to be very interested.
