Classic Cars

Given to Henry Ford II by Enzo Ferrari himself.

If you’ve gotten used to being jealous of the incredible cars residing in Jay Leno’s garage, get ready to become truly envious of this beauty - on loan from the Peterson Automotive Museum in Los Angeles. The 1952 Ferrari Barchetta belonged to Henry Ford II, and was a personal gift from Enzo Ferrari during merger discussions between the two. Equipped with a 2.7-liter V12 engine, this car is a fully-original, one-off, true roadster, and an incredible icon of its time. It may have also served as the inspiration for Ford's Thunderbird.

Take a look at this beauty, and get ready for some tremendous V12 sound:
