Ferraris are among the most desirable cars out there and limited-run models are in most cases even more appealing. This is a fine example of a rare prancing horse of which only three were ever made and actually only two of them exist nowadays. This is a coach-built Ferrari by Tom Meade who was in love with Italian supercars of the 60s and decided to make one for himself using as foundation many Ferrari bits and pieces with Enzo Ferrari’s stamp of approval.

This is how the Thomassima I came to life in 1962, but ultimately perished in the huge floods of Florence in 1969. The car depicted in the attached images is the Thomassima II manufactured in 1967 which was followed two years later by the Thomassima III that is now on a loan at Ferrari’s museum located in Modena, Italy.

The Thomassima II seen here is in perfect condition as in the last 7 years it was thoroughly restored to original working condition. It has a brand new paint and all of its original components have also been restored to period correct condition. Perhaps the most important feature of the car is the V12 engine sourced from the legendary Ferrari 250 GTO. As for the design, these beautiful lines were created by using as inspiration the Ferrari 330 P4 racecar of 1967.

The Thomassima II is actually for sale and it has been listed on eBay for no less than $9 million “buy it now” price, but those who are looking for an investment can contact the seller and make an offer. Chances are the car could be sold for less than the asking price and most likely the vehicle’s value will grow in time taking into account only two of them exist and this particular example is in top notch condition.
