Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta Lusso (1963)
There’s something deeply poetic about the sight of cars with a lot of history / pedigree in a museum, all sparkling clean and standing in the very same position for years in a row.
This Lusso was one of the few intended for actual racing, not road cruising, and yet, there it is, in its own form of casket.
Ferrari 250 GTO (1962)
Not only one of the greatest pieces of automotive history to come out to the world, but a definitive turning point for Ferrari in every possible way.
In 1960, Bizzarrini was still working for Ferrari and had at its hands the responsibility for the 250 GTO: he cleverly went for the 3 liter V12 and the base body of the 250 GT SWB. He then began working with Scaglietti to work on the body of the Omologata.
After many fights with other engineers and old man Enzo himself, Bizzarrini was invited to leave Ferrari for good, being replaced by Mauro Forghieri who completed the project.

Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta (1959)
In Ferrari history, there is no bad 250. And there are a lot of 250. I mean a lot.
Alongside the California SWB, this Berlinetta GT is probably one of the most desireable Ferraris in history. Bizzarrini himself was one of the responsibles for this gorgeous iconic racer, and its price makes sure you don’t forget about all of this heritage.

Stuff that’s awesome: The Ferrari 330 GT Vignale Shooting Break (1968)
Personally, I don’t care if you start shouting at me “But Mr. Valves, those lines have no coherent flow and the whole thing seems like two cars slapped together! You’re stupid and you smell of ducks!”, I’ll still tell you to bugger off.
The Ferrari 330 GT SB was custom built for the Chinetti family by Vignale, namely by the famous coachbuilder Alfredo Vignale, who took the concept of a sports Ferrari wagon quite seriously. Sadly, this would be his last design.
In 2008 this same example had less than 13.000 miles on the clock and was left unsold in an auction, where it was estimated to sell for about $500.000.
I’d buy it in a heartbeat, if I had the money, and drive this to work every single day of the week.
And if you dislike shooting breaks, I’ll personally track you down, knock on your door and call you a meanie. Yeah, it just got that real.
