A very good example of the type

The 375 MM series of models were a direct descendant of the 340 MM series, which in turn were visually very similar to the 250 MMs. These models were honoured with the MM suffix following the 1952 Mille Miglia (MM) victory of the 250 Sport Vignale Berlinetta, s/n 0156 ET, driven by Giovanni Bracco partnered by Alfonso Rollo. 0156 ET was a one-off model, and was the first Ferrari model to use a three liter version of the original Colombo designed V-12 engine.

The automotive aesthete among us might contend that the purest, very best form of vehicular travel is open-air motoring. No fibreglass, canvas or metal overhead to obscure the view or divert the elements. And so it was, decades ago, when folks first began getting around in self-propelled machines rolling on four wheels. Their transportation, more often than not, offered no protection from sun or rain - a normal evolution from horse drawn carriages, or just from horses.

59 Mercato Ferraris into 2015 - will it continue

As you read this, the Scottsdale auctions will have taken place, and we'll then know how the market is fairing. It is the first big test of the new year, and will give an indication if all is well - has the market peaked, is it in decline, or is it still growing.
The offerings are eager, not in the sense of quality, but in the sense that there are only a few trophy Ferrari offered here, as opposed to the cornucopia at Monterey.
