2007 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti Sessanta

2007 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti Sessanta

Technically, Ferrari debuted in 1929, but its official debut is recognized as 1947, the year that Ferrari began manufacturing street-legal vehicles. The 2007 model year marked the 60th anniversary of Ferrari’s street machine building life and the automaker wanted to make it a special one.

Instead of doing what many automakers do (see: Ford) by slapping “60th Anniversary” badges on every car that year, Ferrari chose to build 60 completely unique cars for the 2007 model year. To accomplish this, Ferrari took its existing 612 Scaglietti and modified it to create the Ferrari 612 Scaglietti Sessanta.

As we said, only 60 of these cars were ever built, so they are rather rare. Add in the fact that this bad boy was a whopping $424,480 in 2007 and you can tell that these cars were built for the true collector. If you are a true collector of Ferrari’s and would like to own one that very well may be the Ferrari to own in the next 20 to 30 years, this Sessanta is a safe bet.

F.C. Kerbeck, a dealer of luxury vehicles, is now offering you the opportunity to own one of these rare machines, as they have one up for sale in their showroom and on Ebay.

1971 Ferrari 365 GTS/4 Daytona Spyder

1971 Ferrari 365 GTS/4 Daytona Spyder

In 1968, Ferrari saw it fit to replace the four-year-old 275 GTB/4. Its replacement was codenamed the “Daytona” in honor of Ferrari’s 24 Hours of Daytona win, but Ferrari had no plans to use this name for the production model, despite the outcry from enthusiasts.

In 1968, the GTB/4 was introduced and Ferrari enthusiasts took it upon themselves to dub it the Daytona. The nickname was so popular that the GTB/4 became almost more noticeable under its nickname than its given name. In the same model year, a rare convertible model was released based on the same GTB/4 chassis.

Ferrari did not stray too awfully far for the name of this convertible model, as they simply dropped the “B” in “GTB” and replaced it with an “S,” which stands for Spyder, creating the GTS/4. There were several models of the GTS/4, including: European-spec RHD, US-spec LHD and European-spec LHD. The latter of the group is the rarest, as only 18 of the 122 Daytona Spyders built were Euro-spec LHD.

If owning one of these masterpieces is something you would like to do, but never thought you could get your hands on one, RM Auctions has solved that part of the equation. On May 12, 2012 in Monaco, RM Auctions will be auctioning off a 1971 version of the Ferrari 365 GTS/4 Daytona Spyder. This means you can not only own one of the rarest Ferraris, but also the especially rare LHD Euro-spec model!

2011 Ferrari Eternita

2011 Ferrari Eternita

The Ferrari World Design Contest is one of the most impressive design contests all over the world. This year’s contest was held in order to design the Enzo of the future and brought together 50 schools and universities (totaling to 400 participants) around the world with many outstanding designs from talented artists. Surrounded by the utmost in competition, the Ferrari Eternita - a concept car designed by Hongik University in Seoul - took home the gold. The second and third places went to design studies from IED of Turin and the Royal College of Art in London.

The Eternita impressed in terms of design, technology, and materials used. The designer developed a 1:4 scale model and paid lots of attention to reducing consumption with alternative propulsion systems. The Eternita’s power, in theory, will come from a hydrogen-hybrid drivetrain system with absolutely zero emissions. It sits mere millimeters off the ground and is designed so that the wheels mold into the body to reduce drag.

The model presented at the event had to measure between 420 and 470 cm and have a width of no more than 200 cm. The specifications were important to adhere to because the winning design would be the inspiration behind Ferrari’s next hypercar. Ferrari isn’t all talk and no walk either. Ferrari Millechili won the contest back in 2005 and his vehicle was used as a design inspiration for many of Ferrari’s models. This year’s winners - Kim Cheon Ju, Ahn Dre, and Lee Sahngseok from Hongik University in Seoul, South Korea - are off to their three-month internship at Ferrari where they will shaprne their skills in the automotive industry.
