1952 Ferrari 225 Sport
This has the near mythical lightweight frame called the tuboscocca. It’s special chassis with double outer-tubes joined together with a truss-like arrangement. Not only did this serve to strengthen the platform, it helped form a skeleton of the body shape on which body panels could be mounted. This saved weight with no compromise to structural rigidity and contributed greatly to the now-legendary racing success of the model.
It has that amazing handwrought body by Vignale, and this model comes complete with that supercool hand-made badge. And just look at that hide interior with the spare Wire strapped snuggly. You can almost smell the classicness of it all!
