Ferrari 456 GT Estate (Pininfarina) in London
5.4-litre V12 (442hp)
"Pininfarina was instructed to build a small run of seven cars. Today that sort of thing is very unusual, but not very long ago most cars were build in any way you would desire. If you went to buy a car like a Maserati or an Alfa-Romeo in the Thirties, what you would get was a chassis fitted with four wheels, an engine and a gearbox. Then you took the chassis to one of the numerous Carrozzerias like Touring, Ghia, Vignale or Pinin Farina where skilled craftsmen clothed your car any way you liked. And when the green Ferrari 456 GT came to be, that’s pretty much what happened."
