Four Ferraris Brought To Fiorano For Dario Benuzzi: Video
Since joining Ferrari as a mechanic in 1969, and later becoming chief test driver under Enzo Ferrari himself, Dario Benuzzi has shaped the dynamics and handling characteristics of every model that has left the Maranello factory gates. Except for the 348, which he was unable to sign-off on because of a broken hand. Several years later Ferrari boss Luca di Montezemolo called it one of the worst Ferraris ever built. Probably not a coincidence.
But, these four are definitely not among the worst Ferraris ever built. The company recently sent its legendary test driver out on the Fiorano circuit to sample the F40, F50, Enzo and LaFerrari (we would have thrown in a 288 GTO as well, but we won’t get picky), all cars he had a hand in creating. Now almost 70 years old, Benuzzi loves his job as much as ever. He’s also still one of the coolest human beings on the planet and doesn’t seem to have lost any pace behind the wheel.
