In a few weeks, the collector car world will get a chance to see (and bid on) one of the rarest cars ever produced by Ferrari.
Just 22 examples of the Ferrari 250 Europa were made. Of those 22, 18 featured Pininfarina-designed bodies. The remaining 4 were designed by Vignale. This is one of those 4.
The 1953 Ferrari 250 Europa was initially displayed to the public at the World Motor Sports Show at Madison Square Garden in January 1954. In the following decades it was owned by a number of enthusiasts and later, after more than 3800 hours of work, underwent a restoration that was completed in 2011.
In 2012, it received the Trofeo Foglizzi for the best interior design at the Concours d’Eleganza Villa d’Este. At this year’s Cavallino Classic, it was awarded Platinum and the Ferrari Classiche Cup as the most outstanding factory-certified Ferrari from the event.
The ultra rare car will be auctioned by RM Sotheby’s at the company’s Driven by Disruption event in New York City on December 10.
