In my opinion, this is the best looking Ferrari that has ever been built.

History:
This is the only Scaglietti Coupe 375 MM every made. It was ordered by director Roberto Rosselini. The car was originally a Pininfarina-bodied competition spyder. It was delivered to Rosselini who drove it until he crashed the car into a tree. The front end was very damaged and the car was taken to Scaglietti for chassis repairs. Rosselini ordered the car to be made into a coupe while it was being worked on at Scaglietti. It was to be Sergio Scaglietti's very first passenger car. It took Scaglietti to finish the new aluminum body. The accents of the front fenders was a design that predated the 250 Testa Rossa by years (and if u ask me, the rear looks a bit like an e-type lightweight and the body also reminds me of the 1955 Mercedes 300 SLR). Rosselini eventually sold the car to ex-Microsoft CFO John Shirley.

Specs:
Power: 330hp

The 2014 Pebble Beach Best of Show winner. The first post-war to win the event.
I was just about to post that video too :lol: I'm glad it winning has given this car so much publicity. It certainly deserved it.
