Live the Super '70s In A Ferrari 208 GT4
Play
The Ferrari Dino 208 GT4 is a unique car. Overshadowed by its bigger brother, the 308 GT4, the 208 was originally created to skirt under the Italian tax levied on engines above two liters. What the 208 GT4 lacks in displacement it makes up for in sound and style. For Bradley Price, designer and owner of Autodromo, the opportunity to acquire a practical "super car" of the '70s with its famous wedge styling was too hard to ignore. After a year of ownership, Bradley can consistently be found escaping the city and revving the sweet-sounding V8 along the roads and hills of New York.

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:http://cdn.ilcinemaniaco.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/poliziotto-sprint-800×600.jpg 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
