1952 Ferrari Barchetta Stops By Jay Leno’s Garage

Before the bitter rivalry between Ford Motor Company and Ferrari in the 1960s (which led to the creation of the dominating Ford GT40), the two companies had actually been in talks of a merger during the preceding decade. During this time, Enzo Ferrari sent Henry Ford II a special gift, the one-off Ferrari Barchetta you see above. This dark green Ferrari now resides at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, and it recently stopped by for a visit to Jay Leno’s Garage.

Ferrari TR 250 Testa Rossa

1960 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta 'Competizione' by Ferrari

In the finest tradition of Ferrari’s dual-purpose road and racing berlinettas, the new 250 GT SWB was a tractable and well-mannered daily driver about town, but it was a veritable beast in a race, where the ever more powerfully-tuned Colombo V-12 and revised rear suspension delivered unprecedented performance. Competition-specification cars with additionally uprated engines and lighweight alloy aluminum bodies were immediately made available for racing customers, 43 of these competizione examples were made in the model’s first year of production, 1960. (Just two SWB examples were produced in late-1959, the show cars of Paris and Torino.) 

The Ferrari 212 Export Touring Barchetta

Dubbed the “Ferrari 212 Export Touring Barchetta” the car was used almost exclusively for auto racing, a field in which it saw significant successes throughout the 1950′s.
