The 1960s are widely considered to be one of the golden eras of automotive design. In Italy, the production and manufacture of history’s most lauded vehicles took place during this time, including that of the Ferrari 250 GTE 2+2. The vehicle was certainly a commercial success on and off the racetrack, but among these variants, there were still standout chassis certified under the coveted Classiche title.

The 1962 250 GTE 2+2 “Polizia” that you see here is one such model, boasting a reputation as the one and only surviving Ferrari Police car from the era. Initially, the country’s law enforcement officials utilized a fleet of black Alfa Romeo 1900s, nicknamed Pantera, to capture fleeing criminals. But, like most cunning individuals, they began to modify vehicles that could outrun and outmaneuver even the force’s most prominent drivers. After a brief interview with the local authorities, two of Ferrari’s Colombo-powered 250 GTE 2+2 platforms were contracted for use by four standout officials, including Armando Spatafora, an officer stationed in Rome. For the next six years, he would pilot this distinct model — a legend among servicemen and criminals, alike, for its lethality and nimbleness. Now, the vehicle is up for sale via Girardo & Co. for an undisclosed sum.
