Auction Block: 1967 Ferrari Thomassima II

Oct 21, 2015

Italian exotic sports cars weren’t always as sharp as they are today. If you look at some of the designs from the 60’s, you’ll see some pretty funky designs that feel more like they should be flying cars than sports cars. Take a look at the 1967 Ferrarri Thomassima II, which was just recently restored and re-debuted at the 2015 Concorso Italiano.

It’s one of just three famous Thomassima automobiles built by Tom Meade in the 60’s. After Thomassima I was destroyed in a flood, there are only two models remaining, although the Thomassima III sits in the Ferrari Museum in Modena. The II sports a body built by Piere Drogo of Drogo Carrozeria Sports Cars, who famously built many Ferraris and Alfa Romeo race cars. The engine uses a Ferrari 250, which a Cooper Climax F1 chassis that was originally designed in 1957. The car has all of the right curves in all the right places, and it was restored back to its original condition and sold for a whopping $9 million on eBay. [Purchase]
