Behold: the 1964 Ferrari 500 Superfast Coupe – one of the rarest Ferraris.

Featuring Pininfarina bodywork and a plush leather interior, just 36 of these flagship five-litre V12s were ever made. This car was sold new to the industrialist James Hanson and has changed hands several times since, but still only has a trifling 19,300km on the clock.

Currently accepting bids, probably north of €2.25 million.

    I recall seeing one of these broken down just off the walkinstown roundabout a while ago and what looked like a very annoyed Glenda Gilson kicking the side of it. Maybe someone here knows something about it?

      I dunno. When the grill reaches out past the lights I always consider them a little bit buck toothed

    Had TWO of those. Rubbish X 2. For the driving job. Hardest game in the world, chauffeuring; little peaked cap and “Ronan Keating” crayoned on a bit of paper at the airport. Had a gig to get that Glenda Gilson from Smyths in Ranelagh to the Xposé recording at TV3. Steering wheel came off in my hands at a roundabout in Walkinstown, clipped a Just Eat bike; the Ferrari recoverability from a spin was only woegious, turned over and burned. Went home to get the backup. EXACTLY the same thing happened; but this time at a roundabout in Rialto. No Xposé that day. Bought a rickshaw off a Brazilian lad outside Coppers with a trainee Garda from Harcourt Street thrown in for free. Never looked back.
