DBuilding a Ferrari 250 GT ‘Breadvan’ is for a car lover, like destroying Michelangelo’s work is for an art lover. From Le Mans Classic we get pictures of a unique model, which at auction can reach 30 million euros, if it falls.
At first glance, this unique Ferrari in the world was left with damage to the bodywork, suspension, steering …
This Ferrari 250 GT came off the assembly line with chassis number 2819 in 1961. At that time, this car of the Maranello brand was commanded by Count, who went by the name of Volpi and who had created Scuderia Serenissima.
However, in 1962, Ferrari launched the 250 GTO, an evolution of the 250 GT, with improved aerodynamics and a V12 engine (the same as the 250 GT) mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. Count Volpi wanted this new model, but Enzo Ferrari rejected his request, which made him want to improve the 250 GT he had.
Volpi asked former Ferrari designer Giotto Bizarrini to work on his car and the result was a bold sports car that became one of a kind in the world.
