Official Ferrari Calendars 2013
For more than 60 years, Ferrari has set the standard for automotive excellence. And for almost 30 years, German photographer Günther Raupp has produced the Official Ferrari calendars. That's because Raupp's unerring eye, striking design, and top-flight production quality match those of the world’s most iconic car maker. Now the 2013 editions of Ferrari Myth and Scuderia Ferrari calendars are available to buyers worldwide.
Each year just 5,000 numbered copies of Raupp's flagship Ferrari Myth calendar are offered, making it an exclusive and highly collectible item for dedicated fans. Raupp first produced the calendar in 1984, and in the years since his unique photographic style and unequalled quality have impressed the world’s top Ferrari collectors, many of whom have opened their doors to him. Ferrari Myth has also won an almost cult-like following among die-hard Ferraristi, who eagerly wait to see which cars will appear in the latest calendar before adding it to their collections.
The 2013 edition of Ferrari Myth is one of Raupp’s best. It features a dazzling mix of old and new Ferraris made for the road and track, from classics like the first 250 GTO ever built to the brand-new 2012 F12berlinetta. Other standouts include a 1958 long-wheelbase 250 California—one of just 50 built—and the historic 1970 512M raced by Mark Donohue for the Penske team at the Daytona 24 Hours.
As always, the photography is state-of-the-art, with each car shown to dazzling effect against exotic settings in Italy, Florida, and South Africa. The calendar’s extra-large format—more than two feet tall and 1.6 feet wide—means that each car is displayed on a scale that really does it justice. Ferrari Myth is printed on heavy art-gloss stock, and is presented in a handsome Ferrari-red gift box that can serve as safe, protective storage in the years to come.
Meanwhile, with Formula One returning to the United States, and the Ferrari team returning to winning form, Raupp’s official Scuderia Ferrari calendar has never been more timely. The vivid images come from the top photographers working in F1, and deliver an insider's view of the team in action, capturing Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa in practice, on the track, and savoring victory on the podium. Highlights include shots of Alonso leading the pack at the German Grand Prix, Massa during a wet test session at Catalunya, Spain, and a revealing close-up of the controls on the steering wheel of the F2012 car. Like Ferrari Myth, Scuderia Ferrari is a large-format wall calendar printed on heavy art-gloss paper.
Finally, both calendars are now enhanced with Quick Response (QR) codes that owners can scan with a smart phone to access additional images and information online—from extra photos of each month's car or the latest news about the Ferrari team.
Both Official Ferrari calendars are distributed online to customers worldwide by visiting www.raupp.com
Raupp’s photographs have been exhibited at the Ferrari Museum in Maranello, Italy, the “Haus der Wirtschaft” in Stuttgart, and at other locations in Spain and Switzerland. His latest show runs through January 2013 at the Völklingen Ironworks in Saarland, Germany, a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site.
