Over 200 million euros. This is the total value of the 26 cars entered in the Cavallino Concorso di Modena 2021, an elegance contest dedicated to Ferrari, which this year is held from Friday 2 to Sunday 4 July inside the Motor Valley Fest and for the first time it becomes international, with special models from all over the world.
The special event dedicated to the most extraordinary cars of Maranello is the result of Cavallino Inc., acquired in 2020 by Canossa Events. And for this great Ferrari event, the inclusion of “Modena” in the name is no coincidence: it pays homage to the birthplace of the founder Enzo Ferrari.
Competition between different ages
The oldest of the registered cars is the Ferrari 166 MM Berlinetta Touring (Chassis # 0048), the third of only five cars with this configuration. Produced in the summer of 1950, the rare Berlinetta ran the 1951 1000 Miglia finishing third in class.
After three more editions, she ended up in a Swiss junkyard before being rescued by a local enthusiast, who restored her to her original blue color.
For 1956 the Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta (chassis # 0507), the second produced of the first series in the Competizione version, with aluminum body. He raced – without finishing it – the 1000 Miglia of 1956 and participated in various competitions between 1957 and 1958, before being sold in Switzerland and then arriving in the United States.
Arriving at what is perhaps the most iconic of the group, we make a leap in 1962 with the Ferrari 250 GTO (Chassis # 3445 GT), sold new in Italy to the publisher Luciano Conti, although it seems that behind the purchase there was Count Giovanni Volpi di Misurata – ended up on Enzo Ferrari’s blacklist due to the modifications he made on the Maranello cars. And in fact, this GTO was modified to participate in Le Mans and then returned to the original (excluding the front grille) in 1976.
The Ferrari 275 P from 1963 (Chassis # 0816), born as 250 P and updated in 1964 with the 3.3 liter engine, is the winner of Le Mans 1963 and the 12 Hours of Sebring 1964. She then returned to the 24 Hours of Le Mans with a new victory , effectively becoming the only Ferrari that, to date, has managed to win the most prestigious race in the world twice.
Among the most modern cars, the Ferrari 333 SP from 1994 (Chassis # 06), considered one of the most original 333 SPs left among only 40 produced. It has never raced and was sold to a collector from North Carolina (USA) with the characteristic racing colors of Team Momo.
And finally, there is no lack of “poker” of road supercars: 288 GTO, F40, F50 and Enzo.
