FERRARI 250 GTE 2+2


The 70th anniversary of the "Prancing Horse" is the perfect opportunity to showcase a legend of the Italian police force: the Ferrari 250 GTE 2+2, which was operational from 1962 to 1973, and was driven by now-legendary flying squad police officer, Armando Spatafora. The vehicle which was used by the Rome Mobile Squad, shifted the balance of power on the streets of the capital. Before, police cars could not compete with the souped-up vehicles belonging to organised crime. After the arrival of Ferrari and its 240 horsepower, the 'race' was more than equally-balanced, to the point that the night chases Spatafora and the few authorised colleagues allowed to drive in his place often ended up on the front pages of newspapers. Today, the Police Ferrari, one of the first vehicles to ever enter into service with the Panther emblem and police licence plate number '29444', is preserved in its original black livery at the Museum of Cars of the State Police in Rome. It will be at Verona Legend, beside all its 'colleagues' at a dedicated stand.
