1952 Ferrari 225S Vignale Berlinetta - Price Upon Request

This wonderful Ferrari 225S is the very first out of only 21 cars of th3 225S built and one of only five Vignale Berlinetta built in total. It is most likely also the most successful Ferrari 225S campaigned.
It is a guaranteed entry at the most prestigious vintage Rally and race events including the Mille Miglia, Tour Auto, Le Mans Classic and the Monaco Historic Grand Prix due to it's outstanding race history. Besides many 1st places in various important French racing events the car placed 1st in class and 2nd over all in the 1952 Mille Miglia. It placed 2nd over all in the 1952 Tour de France, as entered in 24 Hours of Le mans in 1952, but did unfortunately not finished the race. most significant for it's eligibility in today's vintage racing events is teh fact that the car participated in the 1952 Grand Prix of Monaco and finished a respectful 5th over all. The year 1952 was the ONLY year in which GT and Touring cars competed in the Grand Prix of Monaco, while it were otherwise always only single seater Grand Prix and Formula 1 race cars. The prestigious Historic Grand Prix of Monaco therefore has only one race class in which GT cars can be entered, only cars which were either entered in the 1952 Grand Prix of Monaco or a sister car built in 1952. Needless to say that this very 225S will always welcome at the Monaco Historic Grand Prix, the Mille Miglia and the Tour Auto as it finished extremely well in the original events.
This rare superb motorcar is presently at the Ferrari factory to receive the Classiche certification. It is fitted with all the original, matching number components as already confirmed by the factory.
The availability of this car represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own such an important classic Ferrari eligible for those race and rally events every classic car enthusiast is dreaming about being part of. The quality of the craftsmanship of the restoration can only be called spectacular.
