March 2008


In the movie “Scent of a Woman,” a Ferrari Mondial T. The movie was produced in 1992, with Chris O’Donnell as the lead star portraying the role of Charlie Simms. Simms was the young and innocent scholarship student at an exclusive preparatory school located in New Hampshire. Simms agrees to look after Lt Col. Frank Slade, played by Al Pacino and a blind retired army officer.

The Ferrari Mondial t is the car used in the movie. You might wonder why the lower case “t” and not the “T”. This is because the lower case “t” referred to the new transversely mounted gearbox, which was used on the Ferrari Mondial T. The use of which allowed the engine to be mounted lower, a great way of imprving both weight and handling distribution.

There was also a heavily revised engine now positioned longitudinally in the chassis, all previous Mondial’s having had their powerplants mounted transversely. Designated Tipo F119 DL (or Tipo F119 G for US specification motors with catalytic converters), the enlarged 3.4-litre V8 featured a displacement of 3405cc thanks to a bore and stoke of 85 x 75mm respectively.

During March 1989, the most heavily revised Mondial of all was launched – Ferrari’s Mondial t. The lower case t in the suffix referred to a new transversely mounted gearbox, the use of which allowed the engine to be mounted lower, improving both handling and weight distribution. There was also a heavily revised engine now positioned longitudinally in the chassis, all previous Mondial’s having had their powerplants mounted transversely. Designated Tipo F119 DL (or Tipo F119 G for US specification motors with catalytic converters), the enlarged 3.4-litre V8 featured a displacement of 3405cc thanks to a bore and stoke of 85 x 75mm respectively.

An elderly Jewish widow living in Atlanta can no longer drive. Her son insists she allow him to hire a driver, which in the 1950s meant a black man. She resists any change in her life but, Hoke, the driver is hired by her son. She refuses to allow him to drive her anywhere at first, but Hoke slowly wins her over with his native good graces. The movie is directly taken from a stage play and does show it. It covers over twenty years of the pair’s life together as they slowly build a relationship that transcends their differences.
