"After I celebrated Maranello [with the 550 Maranello] and I celebrated Modena [with the 360 Modena], I was really looking for a way to celebrate Enzo Ferrari," explains Ferrari chief Luca di Montezemolo. Clearly, the founder's presence is still strongly felt fourteen years after his death at age ninety. We see the Enzo for the first time in a courtyard, behind which is a brilliant white stucco farmhouse with Ferrari-red shutters. Inside, Enzo Ferrari's first-floor corner office is preserved almost exactly as it was at the time of his death. There's the simple laminate desk, with a closed-circuit television to one side, which showed the Fiorano pit area. There are the low-slung brown leather sofas flanking the fireplace, in front of which was always a TV where Enzo watched races. The walls are adorned with large black-and-white photos marking great moments in Ferrari's competition history: Daytona 1967, when Ferrari took first-second-third; the 1975 Spanish Grand Prix at Barcelona with Lauda and Regazzoni; the Nrburgring with Fangio in 1956, the year he won the world championship for Ferrari; a 125S in Ferrari's first race in 1947.
Enzo Ferrari's passion for Formula 1 explains why this car should bear his (full) name. It is, in Montezemolo's words, "very close to Formula 1 in idea, in concept, and a little bit even in design."
Well, I started to fancy about motor racing ever since I was 10 year old boy. Remember watching Ayrton Senna won the 1988 F1 world championship in his first season driving that red & white McLaren – in those days we used to call it the Marlboro car. It had been my dream to collect my favorites miniatures race car ever since then. But it was impossible during those days without internet (online stores) connection. Plus limited choices offered at local toy shops. So, I leave it till end of last year (2007) where I started off collecting hotwheels basic car. Unfortunately I gave up the hunt after collecting the mini for some time. Then I bumped into 1/43 models collection short after that because it gives me better satisfaction - realistics. So up to date I have collected more than 200 pcs of models in 1:43 scale.
