In July 2002, Ferrari won its third consecutive world title with Michael Schumacher. An incredible thing for a championship that would end in November and that the German had dominated.

Cortina passes the Japan test!

Hidetomo Kimura and Tetzu Kurosawa arrived from Japan with the splendid Osca Mt4Frua of 1952, the winner of the Golden Cup at the time, and gleefully left the competition that accompanied the rally with the Best of Show award.

A truly one-off Concourse: Elégance et Automobile à Monte-Carlo

A competition of elegance in Montecarlo, enriched by the royalty of Casa Grimaldi, is by definition something unique. And just how unique they were in terms of charm and value, the cars that paraded on the streets of the Principality and were subjected to ratings that, strictly speaking, shouldn't even have been there. In fact, being selected for participation is in itself a sign of absolute distinction.
