    Nice selection; I notice the F40 folder. Do you have 'Galleria del Vento' the Ferrari wind tunnel brochure? It has a artist drawing of an F40 on the front cover. Can anyone else show a picture of the cover of the wind tunnel brochure? thanks

    Nice collection.
    Over the years ferrari produced a lot of different brochures and books.
    If you look at them it appears that they made a lot of every brochure.
    Close inspection shows that there are a lot of differences brochures that look the same. The printnumbers give you more information on amounts and years they are produced. ..../96 (number/1996).
    During the last 10 years brochures turned into impressive books with fantastic print and photo-work.

    Last week I got the 15000miles red china book in. It's fantastic.

    Recent yearbooks can be bought on ebay for very reasonable prices.
    Newer brochures like the superamerica limited edition book, are becoming quite rare and expensive.

    At the moment a lot of replica's of 1960's brochures are offered on ebay.
    These are all reprints! In the 1960's ferrari made very small numbers on everymodel because production was small. A real one can fetch over 500 dollars!

    I have a collection that covers 1977-2007.
    Later this week I will post some pics.

    I have the sales brochure for my 1977 308GTB...nice collection you have there!

    I'm sure Napolis would be interested in your 208Turbo one, no doubt they are rare!

    Thanks. I've been collecting for a long time, mostly the exotics, and have a collection in the 10's of thousands spanning from around 1980.
    I have some quite rare brochures, but Ferrari brochures are always special.

    I notice the Ferrari 288 GTO press kit shown. Does your copy have the black and white press pictures. Are the pictures faulty. The ones I have seen have a brownish wavy look to the pictures as if they were in the developer too long. The b&w side view of a orig 250 GTO there is fine though.
    There is another set of color pictures for the 288 GTO press kit that are very crisp. For the interior picture it even shows clearly the grain of the leather on the steering wheel. Do you have the color GTO set? Thanks for sharing your wonderful collection!

    From memory the GTO press kit has colour photos and a 250 in b/w. All are fine.
    Its common for the b/w photos to go brown. I think there was a problem when they were manufactured and I've seen many press kits of that era with that problem. Its also common with the Lancia 037 Rally press kit photos

    Thanks for the information. The 4 GTO press kits I have seen were all bad with a brown cast to the b&w pictures from when they were new.
    The F40 blue press kits had no problems with the black & white pictures by comparison. Though some of the glossy pictures had white borders while others were cropped close with no borders. The later 1988 versions came with a few color pictures instead of black & white. There seemed to be no pattern as to which 1987 language version got which photographs of the F40.

    Here are the latest aditions to my collection

    A pininfarina press-set with P4/5 and the 599K.

    The 15000 miles China book. An impressive book with awesome photography.

    An 50 years anniversary postcardbook.
    During the 50 year anniversary the contenders could collect postcards of all the sites they visited during the event.
    There was a special book made to put them in. Recently I found a complete set in the original book.

    They have just released in the past couple weeks the "sister" book to that. The one about the Panamerican tour with the 599s
    Looks equally as nice...

    BTW for those who are interested, the Panamerica book is available to order through the Ferraristore website, off the main Ferrari web site.
