The Ferrari 499P marks the official return of the Prancing Horse to the top prototype category after a 50-year absence. Presented at the end of 2022 at the Ferrari Finali Mondiali in Imola, the 499P complies with the Hypercar technical regulations. The engine is a 3-litre twin-turbo V6 with a 7-speed sequential transmission. The car made its debut at the 1000 Miles of Sebring in 2023, immediately obtaining pole position. Over the course of the season, the 499P constantly improved, until it triumphed at Le Mans with Alessandro Pier Guidi, James Calado and Antonio Giovinazzi, marking Ferrari's tenth victory at the 24 Hours (the last was in 1965).

BURAGO

Mario Besana, who had already founded Mebetoys and Martoys, began producing model cars under the Bburago brand in Burago di Molgora near Milan in 1976. The first models were in 1:24 but Burago also tried other avenues, such as Formula 1 in 1:14, classic sports cars in 1:18, also reaching the 1:43 sector with products that were always very affordable. Burago production between the end of the '70s and throughout the '80s was exterminated: with models that marked an era (just think of the Ferrari 250 TR or the F40, both in 1:18), and which have remained in the memory of at least two generations of collectors and enthusiasts. In the 1990s the company lost its dominant position on the 1:18 model market and in 2005 it painfully closed. Shortly afterwards Burago was taken over by competitor Maisto. Now in China, under the name Bburago, a wide range of die-cast models in various scales continues to be produced. Since 2015, Bburago has held the license for the diecast production of contemporary Ferraris.
