Seth- Built in a series of five, one RHD, the 550 GTZ Barchetta was built from completed 550 Barchettas, unlike some of the 575 GTZs, in the post 550 production timeframe. Advertised price was $1.6M. Zagato chose the beefed up Barchetta chassis as the basis for the open car to ensure adequate stiffness. The cars have been shown extensively at concourses around the world.
Mark- That engine looks beautiful. Sort of like one of the P4 engines, or maybe a 335S engine with injection instead of webers. First shot I have seen of her with most parts assembled. Too bad she will be partially hidden sidewinding in your 308. Would look great in a front engine car where you could see the entire engine. Should run really smoothly as the 365/400/412 engine was the last of Ferrari's 60 deg V12s.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.
