While tempted to let the pictures speak for themselves, the pedigree of this extremely rare Ferrari dictates a bit of an automotive history lesson. First built in 1952, as predecessor to the Ferrari 225, the first 250 series were definitely intended for endurance racing duty with models such as the Monza, Testa Rossa, and GTO excelling on the tracks of LeMans and Sebring. In 1953, Ferrari took a slightly different route with the 250 Europa, making it more of a Grand Tourer of which exactly 22 autos were built. Of these 22, a scant four were built by the Vignale brothers, making this particular model one of the rarest Ferraris ever. After several owners and an extensive 3,800 hour restoration, this exceptional Ferrari is to be auctioned by RM Sotheby’s in New York later this year. Take a look here.
