2 Million £££ For A Ferrari!

And thats only  the guide price,gotta say though i do like it!!
If Chris Evans wants to toast his new job at Radio 2 with a new classic Ferrari he needs to be in Monaco this May and be ready to hand over some more of his millions to RM Auctions.
Because this stunning 250 GT Tour de France could well make a case for being even more beautiful than the ex-James Coburn 250 California he famously bought for £5.5m at another RM auction back in 2008.

Re: 2 Million £££ For A Ferrari!

can`t see anything "stunning" about that car in the pic......................... looks to me very much like a 1967 hard top version of the MGB (with a different grille  Roll eyes

or an Aston Martin DB5  (similar vintage)

externally modern cars are unutterably boring.  the only bits of interest are hidden under the monotonous carapace.

It was "history" that brought to mind the similarity!.  ... and both the MGB and the Aston Martin, have got "history" too....  but they don`t cost £2million....
I`d rather have the Aston than the MGB and I would be more than£1.99million richer.... by not buying the ferari..... and the insurance would be a lot cheaper too ! ! !  Cheesy (now that would be "stunning")

That is one beautiful looking car.  Reminds of this volvo sports car:

Both look great to me.
Either worth 2 mill?  God knows.  In this day and age people will pay zillions for some thrill or other.  If they wanna pay such money then get em to pay it.  Exploitation is big business!
Hell offa nice looking car though apart from how it drives...

Re: 2 Million £££ For A Ferrari!

Ok I'm going to be really controversial now! (so what's new I hear you cry) I think one of the best looking cars for the mass market was the Pinnifarina designed Peugeot 406 Coupe, trouble is like most Peugeot's it drove like a absolute lead balloon. But looked nice though, terribly heavy for its size, seriously under-powered even in the alleged performance model.   
Usually I'm not a fan of any Peugeot looks.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.
