Description

Immensely passionate about Ferrari and their engines, artisan Terzo Dalia has been handcrafting incredibly detailed and faithful representations of Ferrari’s finest componentry in very small numbers. Recognised by collectors worldwide and even Luca de Montezemolo, Dalia constructs 1/3 scale replicas – much more than mere models.

Utilising many of the same practices and materials as Ferrari would in period, the recreation of the 599’s Enzo-derived 65-degree V12 powerplant uses over 200 parts, each one hand-formed and sand-cast aluminium and turned stainless steel. It is held together by no fewer than 500 screws, the assembly of the engine uses no adhesives. The fully synchronised engine can rotate in exact firing order with the 12 separate pistons linked as they would be in full scale, by connecting rods to the crankshaft. Additionally linked by a series of internal gears, the outside pulleys link to the rotating pulley. The Enzo engine also features the bespoke carbon fibre airbox and engine covers, along with the polished manifold.

Each engine takes over a year to produce and assemble and comes in at an astounding 16-kilogram weight. The first engine Dalia completed coincided with the Golden Jubilee of Ferrari and after nomination, placed first overall. Both Piero Ferrari and Luca di Montezemolo presented him with the award and his works can be seen in the Ferrari Museum in Maranello, Italy.
