With the Ferrari 250 GT, Ferrari was well on its way to series production. But not all were the same. Some, like this 250 Europa GT, 0407 GT, were sculpted with a bit more grace, a bit more detail.

Ferrari began by building race cars, but quickly saw the need for a fast production street car.

The RM Sotheby's ICONS Auction in New York was a more subdued affair than recent auctions, and may reflect buyers being a bit more selective in their choices.

Difficult to say if seller expectations were too high, or the market has grown cautious.
