In fact it is officially titled "The Magic Of DAVID COPPERFIELD III", even if it is better known as "The Magic of David Copperfield III: Levitating Ferrari", in which "Levitating Ferrari" is a reference to the second illusion, given that never before an illusionist has been able to levitate (and then vanish in midair) an object as big and heavy as a 60.000 $ Ferrari. So, the illusions performed are: "Appearing Car Keys", "Floating Ferrari", "The Couple", "Ring Finger", "Broken Heart", "Art Gallery" (aka "Linking Rings"), "Shimada Parasol Act" (performed by Haruo Shimada), "Record Album Prediction" (aka "Record Albums") and "David's Fable" (aka "The Fable"). In the opening titles 6 stars are accredited and in the last illusion a duck appears for the first time, and Copperfield often will ripropose it in future illusions, revealing also the name, not yet known to the audience.
