Our first-ever Petrolicious Talks guest is Ralph Gilles, Head of Design at FCA. When he's not leading automotive design at one of the world's largest car companies, he's tinkering on classics and driving his Alfa Romeo GTV.
When the Sunoco Ferrari 512 M first appeared at Daytona in 1971 it was a revelation. Manned by a dream team, the car combined Ferrari’s pedigree with Penske’s legendary attention to detail in everything from his crew’s uniforms to the polished wheels. Slated to run at Daytona, Sebring, Le Mans, and Watkins Glen, this 512 M was the odds-on favorite every time it rolled onto the starting grid.
