Cavallino Classic Modena - DK Prepared F50 Receives Platinum Award & 'Best of Show'!

The 2024 Modenese edition of the Cavallino Classic saw an exclusive array of carefully selected cars presented within the gardens and grounds of the 18th- Century Casa Maria Luigia. Incomparable catering and indulgent hospitality was was provided by hosts Massimo and Lara Bottura, on the outskirts of Enzo Ferrari's hometown.

Over the course of 3 days, commencing on May the 17th, 30 of the finest Ferraris were present where the discerning judges, many of whom came from the United States, scrutinized the vehicles to determine the winners. The event was proud to host automotive royalty, Ing. Piero Ferrari, son of Ferrari founder Enzo, who attended with his daughter Antonella and grandchildren Enzo and Piero. There too, was an abundancy of notable guests including former F1 driver Sebastian Vettel, and director of watches at Louis Vuitton, Jean Arnault, joined by the likes, Andrea Modena, the head of Ferrari Classiche.

Entrants ranged from the 1979 512 BB/LM, through Michelotto's 308 GT/M, 365 GTB/4 Competizione to a 1954 250 Monza and the DK prepared, 1997 Ferrari F50.

Having been used and enjoyed for many very happy miles, the current owner of this F50 brought the car to us in early 2023 and tasked us with carrying out a comprehensive mechanical overhaul. With no bolt spared and no surfaces missed, DK meticulously stripped, refinished and refitted thousands of individual components. To provide increased access, the engine was removed entirely allowed uninhibited access to the bulkhead. The suspension all round was rebuilt and once refinished, the car was reassembled.

It fills Team DK with great pride to have been entrusted with the care of this F50. The works carried resulted in not only a faultless, 'perfect 100' Platinum Award with no deductions, but furthermore won Ferrari Classiche Best of Show!
