It attracted more than 100,000 people from around the world in 2017, its best year yet. The brand attributes this success to its now-retired Ayrton Senna exhibit, recent...

The 275GTB seen above may be the most important example of a pure road Ferrari of the 1960’s. It is a Ferrari 275GTB Speciale, a 1 of 1 Ferrari built by Pininfarina for its founder, Battista “Pinin” Farina. The Italian design house has long been associated with Ferrari (NYSE:RACE).

Lamborghini unveiled the 2019 Urus worldwide in Sant’Agata Bolognese last month in Italy. Now it’s here on North American shores at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show, having made its debut at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit.

Alfa Romeo, the Italian brand built (and rebuilt) on 1960s sex appeal, posted the biggest surge in US sales in 2017, an anachronistic result in an industry currently mesmerised by battery packs and self-piloted transportation pods. The carmaker won its bragging rights the oldfashioned way — through performance. Alfas have curb appeal, powerful engi...

Where does one start with the story of Giotto Bizzarrini? I guess in 1953. That's when, at the age of 28, he wrote his engineering thesis about the complete Abarthization of the Topolino, the 13 horsepower predecessor of the Fiat 500. The following year, he landed at Alfa Romeo (not unlike Enzo Ferrari back in the day), where he became a chassis en...

Walking through the historic city center of Modena, Italy, cobblestone streets dating back centuries meander away from the main square, lined with boutiques, cafes and gelato shops. Couples walk arm-in-arm, laughing groups of friends and window shoppers stroll underneath the arcades. Noticeably absent from the scene are cars - the rules are that on...

Ferrari NV, fabled for its fast cars on roads and race tracks, is packing some extra speed into its factories, too. The Italian supercar maker, spun off from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV in 2016, plans to boost production by doubling assembly shifts to two a day in 2018 as deliveries are on pace to reach its 9,000-vehicle target a year earlier than...
