There’s no better place for Ferrari’s latest masterpiece – the GTC4Lusso – to make its public North American debut than at Casa Ferrari Carmel, the Prancing Horse’s “home away from home” as Monterey Car Week gets underway.

Nestled along Route 1 in the Carmel Highlands, the “Casa” – with its signature red roof and white walls – is returning for its second year to welcome Ferraristi and invited guests to celebrate the best of Maranello’s past and present. In addition to the GTC4Lusso, guests can also spy the California T Handling Speciale winding alongside the shimmering Pacific Coast—the reality of California Dreaming.

The week that lays ahead will be packed with some of the most spectacular Ferraris to be assembled anywhere. Casa Ferrari Carmel’s Piazza will display both the modern-day range – including the California T HS, F12berlinetta, 488 GTB, 488 Spider, and GTC4Lusso – plus an array of Classiche-certified examples.

Additionally, no fewer than eighteen classics from Maranello will grace the lawn at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. At the auctions, headlines will likely be made yet again as highly anticipated examples poised to change hands include: 1959 Ferrari 250GT LWB California Spider Competizione; 1960 Ferrari 250GT SWB Berlinetta Competizione; 1950 Ferrari 166MM Berlinetta; and 1956 Ferrari 250GT Berlinetta Competizione “Tour de France.”
