1953 Ferrari 250 Europa

The partnership between Enzo Ferrari and famed designer Carrozzeria Vignale may have been brief, but cars like this 1953 Ferrari 250 Europa show that the relationship was nothing short of special. Known for the standout sharp angles and rounded edges, Vignale-bodied Ferraris are easy to spot, but incredibly difficult to find. Ferrari built only 22 of the 250 Europa, and only four of those were designed by Vignale, making this one even rarer. Fully restored in 2009 after nearly 4,000 hours of work, it still houses a V-12 engine with triple Weber 36 carburetors, four-speed manual transmission, and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes.
