RM Airzona 2015 Preview – 1955 Ferrari 250GTE Low-Roof Alloy Coupe

Anything with low-roof and alloy in the name is almost automatically on our shortlist of amazing classics. But with a name starting with Ferari 250GT — you know you’re on to something special.

The cabin of this particular car is outstanding, as is the unbelievably customized two-tone exterior. Very memorable and cool.
