In late 1953 Ferrari commissioned Vignale to create bodies for two of the early 250 Europa chassis as a bid for eventual series production. For the Paris Motor Show, Giovanni Michelotti of Vignale used a design with sloping fastback profile that was typical of their coupes at the time. The front of the car had a large egg crate grill and lowered headlights which was first introduced with the 340 Mexico competition cars. Some scoops and louvres from the competition cars also made their way onto our feature car.
We have some great photos and images of this unique coachbuilt Ferrari. One-off Michelotti design for Vignale is stunning in pictures and even better in person.
