Retromobile is one of the finest exhibitions of old vehicles in the world. This is a good opportunity every year to admire beautiful cars and especially beautiful classic Ferrari. What were the most outstanding Ferrari in this 2016 Retromobile edition? Here is a review to discover the Ferrari that should not be missed.
Visiting Retromobile is every year the opportunity to meet other members of TheFerrarista. It is also an opportunity to discuss with the organizers of the various events that will punctuate the coming year and to see the recognized industry professionals. The Ferrari world is relatively small.
It is also an excellent opportunity to admire rare Ferrari. Here is the most remarkable Ferrari that this 2016 edition offered over the aisles. You will not find here the Ferrari that were sold in the auction rooms, which were widely publicized, such as the Ferrari 335 S that sold for 32 million euros.
Here are, rather in order of personal preference, the 21 Ferrari that you should not miss in Retromobile, or an up session if you did not get there this year.
