275 GTB/4 "Poor man's 250 GTO" ouch. I guess $900,000 vs 15 million would do that to your perception.

Great selection of cars, was that 212Export's Daytona there? hehehehe

But still can't understand what is that Enzo doing in the list of the most beautiful Ferraris... Specially considering that neither the F40 or the F50 are in the list.

The Enzo does seem very out of place. Marcel definitely does not seem to care for any of the "Fiat" era cars.

On the Daytona, well I am sure he has seen 212Exports' stunning car.

Wow! What list.

I'm a 41 year old guy from 1968 from US to set era, a fan aand lover of Ferrari since Nikki Lauda F1 days of 1975+.

In know particular order, if I was ask my top favorite "Most Beautiful"

-250 Lusso, Luca where's the modern version?
-308, so classic and iconic
-288, the performance 308, a little HGH hormones
-F40, beautiful, well? more so then a Countach, if you see this in your rear view mirror you know what's going on
-Daytona, all-time, better in person then in photos
-250LM, classic modern style
-166, revolutionariey
-275 modern sports car, 10-20 years ahead of its time
-Dino, is this #1 in sports cars for women

other mentions
-355
-430
-365/512
-328

Thanx, Tony. I do not consider myself that good with words. My emulation goes for those who can express themselves with words. Do appreciate your mention. w/ smiles Jimmy

My 330GTC is not in the list, so clearly Marcel doesn't know Ferraris. LOL!

But there are some strange things in this list. First of all: the original GTO is not in there, but the SII GTO is. He must be the only person on the planet to prefer the later bodyshape. The Enzo is a complete surprise appearance. Why on earth the 166 Barchetta would top the SWB, Lusso or even Dino I don't know (although they are wonderful cars those MMs, don't get me wrong). But beautiful? Not exactly.

The prices mentioned are also way off sometimes. 330P4 = $30 million? We had one of the 3 mentioned for sale in May, and it was a no sale with the highest bid at 7 million. Also, there is no way that a SI 250 PF Cabriolet is $3 million. Much more like $750k. There is a BEAUT for sale at the moment, actually, recently restored in Holland, have a look at Anamera.com.

Anyway, it was highly entertaining I thought. But my list would include Peter Kalikow's 410SA!

+1, some of the value estimates are more than ambitious.

Onno, Marcel Massini's taste is always away from the "mainstream" taste and thanks god so.....as otherwise he would not have produced such wonderful books as "Ferrari by Vignale" and others. To see mainstream, we may click on any Ferrari Webside, its the unusual which over time is fascinating...!
Regarding the 166MM, I assume its one of his very personal choices as Marcel believes that the 166MM is the one Ferrari with which the winning of the real important GT endurence races (1949 Le Mans, Luigi G.) started for Ferrari. He once found a "barn find" 166 MM a couple of years ago in the US Desert, Cavallino made a title story out of it.

Hey 212,

please don't get me wrong - I love his choices, even if I don't understand some of them!

The 166MM is awesome and cannot be replaced - its place in history is monumental. But the question was: the most beautiful Ferrari, and I can't agree with putting it in 5th place. But that's just me - I love people for their own opinions!!

You might enjoy these F1's starting, including Nikki's, I took at Infineon a couple years back: Matter of fact, I have a shot or two of this years F1 Vintage contenders at the Indy run at Infineon: F owner has a couple including the F1 seen here which he races.
Turn up the sound: awsome.
