Story and Photos by Alessandro Gerelli
This year’s Oldtimer’s Grand Prix, held last weekend August 10-11 at the Nurburgring, was short on Ferraris but long on Maseratis. Alessandro Gerelli brings you the cars in two parts.
Ferrari 250 Breadvan returned to the Ring this year. According to Marc Sonnery and Keith Bluemel in their book 'Rebel Rebel' the Breadvan is the ‘most recognizable Ferrari in the world’.
