Considering that the F8 Tributo never got a special, hardcore variant, it’s safe to say that this 2019 Ferrari 488 Pista is perhaps the ultimate form of the modern, mid-engined V8 Ferrari. This stripe-less example isn’t shouting about it, however, and we simply love this hue of Rosso Fiorano. Inside, things are no less special, with swathes of Extracampionario Bordeaux Alcantara covering almost every visible surface. Touches of yellow leather details add some visual flair to what is an extremely enticing package. With just 619 miles on the clock, we challenge you to find a better Pista on the Classic Driver Market!
The Diablo is in the details
Cars built during the 1990s are experiencing a bit of a resurgence as of late, and the Lamborghini Diablo is no exception, representing the very best of 20th Century supercar design. This 1996 Diablo SE30 is one of the model’s most collectible variants as only 150 of these rarified raging bulls were built to celebrate Lambo’s 30th anniversary. Lighter and more powerful than a standard Diablo, the 532 horsepower SE30 is the one to have if you don’t fancy tangling with the unhinged Diablo GT. This Titanium over blue suede example is in stunning condition with just 24,855 miles on the odometer and it would certainly steal looks away from almost all of its younger relatives. Considering over 11,000 Aventadors were built, by comparison this SE30 is a very rare find indeed.
If you’re on the hunt for a grand tourer that values style over straight-line speed, then might we interest you in this beautifully restored 1951 Bristol 401? Inspired by the coachwork of Touring of Milan, this Bristol’s streamlined shape was actually formed in the marque’s downwind tunnel, resulting in a very slippery design. Triple the price of a Jaguar XK 120 when new, it is perhaps unsurprising that only 650 of these curvaceous grand tourers were built between 1949 and 1953, which makes them very rare indeed today. Finished in a gorgeous shade of metallic green with a wonderful beige interior, this is one of those cars that urges you to slow down and enjoy the journey.
RennSport’s sweet spot
Ask a Porsche aficionado which modern 911 is best, and if they know their stuff they’ll probably point you in the direction of one of these: a 997 GT3 RS. Built before the 911’s growth spurt that accompanied the 991 generation, this 2007 997.1-generation example is the perfect driver’s tool for both the track and your favourite local backroads. Finished in a fan-favourite shade of orange, this GT3 RS is poised to be your next race-read daily with steel brakes and Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires. Showing a healthy 26,595 miles on the odometer, this GT3 RS has clearly been enjoyed during its 15 years on the road, and would certainly offer its next owner plenty more good times to come.
Every Alfa built during the 1960s is a beautiful sight to behold, and this 1965 Alfa Romeo GTA is one of our absolute favourites. Unveiled to the world at the 1965 Amsterdam Motor Show, this 745 kg featherweight would have bowled people over with its irresistible good looks and Italian charm. Powered by a 115 Hp inline-four cylinder, Giulia GTAs driven by official and private drivers won over 200 races in 1966 alone, making this an excellent choice if you’re looking to top the charts at any of Europe’s major rally events such as the Tour Auto or the Modena Cento Ore. Recently restored by the famous Alfa Nielman Racing garage, this spritely coupe presents in as-new condition.
