It was the 26th anniversary of the death of Enzo Ferrari on Thursday (August 14), and "Il Commendatore" continues to cast a shadow over the automotive industry that is perhaps now more influential than ever.

Perhaps even more importantly, by Sunday evening (August 17), we expect Ferraris will populate more than half the top 100 most valuable cars ever sold at auction, confirming Maranello is more dominant than ever in the automotive investment marketplace.  Read More

With that in mind, the European V-Charge consortium is developing a system whereby users can just step out of their vehicle when they reach a public transit station, leaving the car to head off on its own to find a parking spot.  Read More
