Ferrari 250 GTE on Special Assignment

In 1962, crime in Rome was remarkably under control thanks to the valiant efforts of the local police. To reward the success of the force, the president of the Italian Republic himself asked Enzo Ferrari to assign two very special Ferraris to police duty. One of the Ferraris is almost immediately destroyed. One survives to this day. This is the tale of the survivor.

Was there a reason they had to keep the cars covered after the auctions? Maybe I’m reading too much into it but something sounds a little… Italian mob maybe… in all this.

Awesome story. I knew nothing of this Ferrari! I already thought the Carabinieri were cool for driving Alfa Romeos all these years but now!?! wow![url=”http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5215/5485831168_fe9436ca38_o.jpg”]Your text to link…[/url]

This is FANTASTIC!! Someone has to make a movie about Spatafora the “I’m a cop, not a racing driver” racing driver cop and his Ferrari.

They actually recreate that in the movie I mentioned upthread, which is loosely based on the story of this car. Pic attached (also visible here if the attachment fails)

While waiting for the vid to be made un-private, [url=”http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ARWjkJ96HUw”]here’s a link to a car chase[/url] from the 1977 Italian poliziottesco film Poliziotto Sprint (AKA Highway Racer) which prominently features a Ferrari 250 Police Pursuit car, seen here dueling with a Citroen DS. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ARWjkJ96HUw
