    NEW PICTURES FROM MARANELLO

    In another spectacular trip, my girlfriend Suchi Tepanaki went to Maranello for the special "Formula Uomo" event wiche presented Ferrari’s future plans to the world’s media.

    Here ir what she saw...

    Luca di Montezemolo, President of the Ferrari Maserati Group chose this occasion to speak about the aims of the Company put forward in this project as well giving a sneak preview of its latest creation, the “Enzo Ferrari,” which will be presented officially at the Paris Salon in September.

    “To build an exceptional product you need exceptional people, who are given an excellent environment in which to work,” maintained President Montezemolo. “This is what we have at Ferrari, where everyone works as part of the same team, in an atmosphere which merges culture and tradition with the future and innovation. This is what makes Ferrari one of the most prestigious companies in the world.

    In 1997, we put in hand the creation of a true Ferrari Village at Maranello. It’s aim was to give our staff the best possible working conditions. The best way to go about this was to put people at the very heart of the project, hence the name Formula Uomo. It is symbolised best by the tree lined road, via Enzo Ferrari, inside which runs the entire evolution of the site,” continued Montezemolo. “We decided to create a highly ecological environment with a perfect organisation, which would continually stimulate and motivate those who work here, making it the most innovative factory in this respect.

    “We are very pleased with what we have done, because it is the result of unity, passion and determination, based on total innovation and with the maximum attention paid to the workplace, the product,
    marketing and trends.” Here is a quick glance at the figures: in 2001, the investment in research and development totalled 225 million Euro, equivalent to around 21% of turnover with an increase of 76% over the previous year and it is all self-financing.

    “I wish to thank the architects, Visconti, Sturchio and #$%#as who have managed to capture our ideas perfectly,” said the President. “Ferrari communicates through its own products, its cars and not through amazing architectural creations. The project therefore had to stay true to our basic philosophy and I thank the architects for having stuck to that principle. By 2005, both Ferrari and Maserati will be completely new.”

    What better occasions to present the next car which will leave the gates of Maranello to arrive in all 43 countries in which Ferrari operates? President Montezemolo actually allowed an early viewing of the Pinifarina designed “Enzo Ferrari,” currently known as the FX project. “Ferrari has already attributed the names Modena and Maranello to its cars, testifying to the Company’s close links to its home town. But we had a dream: to be able to give one of our cars the name of our founder, who had the courage to go out on his own and set up a company. That is also the reason why we decided to put a copy of Enzo Ferrari’s signature inside the car.

    “So far we have spoken of the ability to work as a team, of creativity, passion and innovation. This is the basis on which we wish to present the “Enzo,” a car which is unique in the world from every point of view: a twelve cylinder engine which is new in every respect, weight, size, power, ecological credentials, driveability, made entirely from carbon fibre, a gearbox which is right up with the latest evolution in Formula 1, a steering wheel which can control several functions on the car, a car which can beat all 0-100 km/h acceleration figures and top speed records.”

    Montezemolo specifically wanted to thank all those who had contributed to the birth of this new car. “First of all, Amedeo Felisa, the Managing Director of the Gestione Granturismo, who is the father of “Enzo,” then Piero Ferrari, who right from the start supported my decision to give the car this name. But also Todt who, along with his crew, above all Schumacher, spent many hours on the development of the car,” said Montezemolo. “I cannot leave out all our partners: Bridgestone who have produced an innovative limited edition tyre; Brembo who produced the brakes (the Enzo will be the first Ferrari fitted entirely with carbon brakes<A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/wink.gif"></A> Magneti Marelli for the gearbox; OMR who perfected a pedal box which is adjustable to 16 different positions.”

    The Enzo Ferrari will be officially launched at the Paris Salon in September and production, limited to a run of 349, will begin in November 2002.

    FERRARI IN BLACK

    Ferrari offers 16 different colors to their costumers. Three belongs to the “black scale”.
    FER 1240 (“Black”)
    FER 910 (“Daytona Black”, metallized)
    FER 66398500 (“New Daytona Black”, metallized)

    You can also “create” your own color in the factory, but that’s other story.

    Talking about special Ferraris in black, this F50 was sold in 1997.

    I have no information of any F40 or 288 GTO in black.

    WHAT IS "FERRARI UOMO"?

    (The place where was presented de "Enzo", explained by Ferrari Media Centre)

    Formula Uomo - the Ferrari of the future

    Maranello, 3rd July – Last Friday, Ferrari presented its "Formula Uomo" project in the new GeS Logistics building. The theme of the project is that Man is the central element at the core of the company's renewed layout.

    The "Formula Uomo" project set out to create a true Ferrari Village, where every structure is planned to reinforce, even from an architectural point of view, the fact that the workforce is the central element of its work and the results produced. The expansion covers an area of around 150,000 square metres.

    The renovation work on the Ferrari site began in 1997. Right from the start, function was not the only priority of the designers. The quality of the work place and excellent architecture form part of a design, planned to reflect the company's reputation around the world for excellence and prestige.

    The architecture clearly testified to the industrial growth of a marque where its workforce and sense of teamwork are its strong points.

    Both poles of Ferrari's identity, tradition and innovation are thus represented, while the architectural identity of Maranello has also been incorporated: the long low red brick building, around the old west entrance, and the new part, the high tech glasshouses of the Nuova Meccanica and the aluminium cylinder that is the Wind Tunnel, around the east entrance.

    Thus the combined public faces of Maranello's industrial complex, while different, demonstrate total coherence in a magical continuity from the past to the future.

    The first part to be completed was the Formula 1 Wind Tunnel, designed by Renzo Piano. There is an obvious analogy between Ferrari's identity and the work of Renzo Piano, who is noted for his buildings which bring together technological excellence, workmanship and a human working environment. Piano's design achieved its objectives with a strong visual image, combining form and function and technical performance.

    The start of 2001 saw the completion of the second project, the Nuova Officina Meccanica, designed by the architect, Marco Visconti (Fiat Engineering).

    The entire building, which covers an area of 15,000 square metres, is where all essential Ferrari and Maserati engine parts are made and is based on 15 work stations.

    The project identified several elements of bio-architecture, given high-performance values: to guarantee a high level of natural lighting, to control temperature, avoiding the heat effects of sunlight in the building, to reduce noise levels for maximum acoustic comfort, to produce a high quality internal environment, avoiding clashing colours so as to be soothing on the eye; to provide as many views as possible to the natural outdoor setting and on the inside, which will feature two small gardens; avoiding the use of materials which could produce internal pollution while using as much natural ventilation as possible.

    By Monday 1st July, the GeS Nuova Logistica will be fully up and running, to handle the movement of the Formula 1 cars and all their service trucks.

    The building was designed by the architect Luigi Sturchio and is located at the Fiorano track and handles the organisation for the Grand Prix team. The Nuova Logistica is purpose built to do the job, laid out like a hangar with semi-circular work stations lined up along a single axis. Its shape and height are designed to cope with the large trucks, allowing them access to the garage areas and the stores on the intermediate level.

    Two internal stairways link the two floors and there is also a heavy duty lift to handle packing cases and equipment.
    The main section, west of the track, has 14 large openings with sectional doors including pedestrian doorways, which allow the Ferrari tractor units to get in. The area around the Gestione Sportiva is in the shape of a hemisphere and in the centre on a line with the factory is the main entrance to the offices.

    Between now and 2005, the entire project will be completed with the construction of the Centro Sviluppo Prodotto, (Product Development) a Nuova Verniciatura (New Paint Shop) and a new Company Restaurant and the new GeS Complex.

    The Centro Sviluppo Prodotto project is designed by the architect Massimiliano Fuksas and represents the poetics of lightness. More than a building, it can be seen as a new vista, a new geography.

    Water, bamboo, the use of ecological materials, total attention to bio-technology, make the work place a pleasant place to be. The overall look is dominated by an area which juts out, suspended on water which covers the first level. Water is the key to the project as it creates new spaces. It runs through channels linking the various areas, becoming a vehicle of change for the architecture, reflecting the light from the various upper levels, so that it appears to contain precious metals. There is also a bamboo area which splits the light in thousands of directions. Thus, the design becomes a magic conduit between the multiple facets of nature and the inexorable perfection of the technological dream. This fusion will be perfected when the creative interpretation of the architecture and will be integral to the actual product design process.

    The new Company Restaurant will be designed by the architect Sturchio to create, not just a simple works canteen, but an enjoyable meeting place in a type of large square capable of accommodating the workforce.

    With its central position, the new building will unite all its elements in a giant covered "piazza" open to the main street of the west area, named in honour of Enzo Ferrari, which runs from east to west along the entire length of the factory.

    The architecture for this meeting place will have a special shape, drawing on aerodynamic lines and will be compatible with the multi-functionality of the internal space.

    On the north front, a glass portico opens onto a great hall with all the required services: bar, Info-Point, Learning-Point, a wellbeing centre, an infirmary and medical analysis laboratories and a small drugstore.

    Lifts and escalators go up to the mezzanine, which will house offices and recreation areas and on to the second level, which will house restaurants, kitchens and serving areas. The main restaurant is one single space with ceiling-mounted zenith natural lighting, with crystal surfaces which are actively bioclimatic.

    The Nuova Verniciatura which will cover 20,000 square metres, will be the most innovative in the motor industry. It will be equipped to guarantee excellence of the product and craftsmanship thanks to the ambient conditions.

    The project is the work of the architect Marco Visconti and its starting point is the desire to apply the very latest technological processes, studied in conjunction with Durr, with powder base and water-based paints, while the environment can boast extremely low emission levels.

    Innovation and the highest levels of technological productivity are essential factors, as all aspects of the car paint process; colour, protection, attraction and technology, brilliance and durability must not only reflect and augment the lines but must also protect the cars against the elements, both atmospheric and mechanical.

    The paint shop also aims to meet the required standards as per the "Progetto Ferrari di Certificazione Ambientale ISO 14.001". The new Verniciatura Ferrari, by necessity, a large architectural structure, is set in the centre of the latest expansion of the Maranello industrial complex.

    The project is made up of simple spaces, partially transparent, interconnected and slightly staggered in order to cope with the equipment which needs a lot of height.

    No other activity is as centralised as the Formula 1 programme. Every single element of the car is constantly evaluated and improved, based on an ideal, which is to have the car perform at its maximum in the race.

    Electronics, mechanics, chassis, aerodynamics and metallurgy are just some of the elements involved in the development of a Formula 1 car.
    The new GeS complex was designed by the Sturchio studio, with a starting point of bonds with the past creatively combined with the technical demands for efficiency. Ferrari's new Gestione Sportiva had to reflect the "living entity" which is continually in a state of growth and evolution while fitting into its environment and the urban context of Maranello.

    Following the path of the historic Ferrari entrance to the GeS area is a single architectural structure with a very long frontage which appears to have been sculpted by the wind.

    The main entrance is hidden by a grassy slope. The complex has two main areas, set on an east-west axis. There is a central area for all the power installations and for recycling energy from the adjacent test bays, design offices, senior management, the tower and finally the track itself, where the results of all the department's efforts are tested. The entire complex is linked by functional, designed underground and overhead corridors and walkways.

    "ENZO" SIGN AND THE INSIGNIA THAT NEVER WAS

    Ehen Ferrari decided to call "Enzo Ferrari" at the new supercar, someone remember the idea of the Dino.

    The Ferrari Dino was launched in 1969 and was a tribute for the dead son of Enzo Ferrari.

    The Dino was the first Ferrari with out the prancing horse insignia in the front.

    The idea of the "Enzo Ferrari" sign in the new supercar was tested for Pininfarina in some draws, but was discarded at last moment.
