The gang had already cased the cemetery and planned an escape route into the Apennine Mountains on the Italian peninsula.Enzo Ferrari, the legend of Italian automotive manufacturing, died in 1988 at age 90. It marked the end of a lifetime devoted to constructing fabulously fast and expensive sports cars. “I build racing cars with the same feverish pleasure with which drug addicts sniff cocaine,” he once remarked.
