Not for sale but on loan from a friend of Austin’s Ferrari dealership, this is a really significant car. At the time of its debut, it was the first production car to break 200 mph. Light weight (2500 lbs) and 471 hp from a twin turbo 3 litre V8, created for a race series that was discontinued before the car was presented. More info on wiki. This sparkling car has travelled less than 200 miles. Cost $400k in 1988. A great surprise to find.
Here is another more practical, four seat Ferrari with a front-mounted V12. I discovered this Ferrari 412 on a flatbed approximately above Hitler’s last stand in his underground bunker in Berlin, and a block or two inside the old Berlin Wall. Almost 3000 of this series was built from 1975 to 1989. I like these handsome cars a lot and found a similar one for sale a while back on N. Lamar in Austin.
