    In , Ferrari increased the displacement of its early Colombo-designed V engine to over 2. The was offered in two configurations: Only approximately 78 examples of the Inter were constructed in total, and they have grown to become a highly desirable early collectible in the storied evolution of the Colombo V Ferrari road car. This sensational Inter is one of only four cabriolets bodied by Vignale and one of approximately 36 total examples constructed by the coachbuilder.

    Vignale delivered some very unique design cues with this brief grouping of open cars, including a dual-mouth front fascia that featured a smaller elliptical opening below the standard grille location. The main grille was characterized by vertical sections that were unusually framed by a larger circular chrome piece with crossbars—the vertical element of which visually led to a raised spine along the hood.

    Additional distinguishing elements of the design included curved rear fenders that house recessed tail lamps and bumpers painted in the body shade, a very unusual colour design at the time. Painted in black, the cabriolet was equipped with a very distinct interior in red leather that featured dual glove boxes and a single rear seat behind the two front seats.

    Interestingly, the serial number EL was originally stamped on a right-hand drive example of the Vignale Cabriolet that was slated for customer John McFadden, an Englishman residing in Paris, France.

    McFadden, however, had actually intended to acquire a left-hand drive example for use on the continent, and when Ferrari attempted to deliver the original EL to him, he refused the car. The factory had one of the other four Vignale Cabriolets, EU, then in production as a left-hand drive example, and this car was re-stamped with EL and delivered to McFadden and now offered here.

    The original EL was immediately re-stamped as EU in a chassis number swap that, while not altogether unusual for Maranello numbering practices, caused some degree of confusion, as each car is factory stamped with both numbers.

    During a recent conversation with Seibert, he noted that the car was remarkably original and complete, however, in tired condition after two-and-a-half decades on the road. Prior to embarking on a restoration of the car, it was shown in a precursor to the preservation class at the 16th Annual FCA meet in Atlanta in June By January of the following year, the restoration had begun, including an engine freshening, a cosmetic refurbishment that included a repaint in dark grey metallic, and a reupholstering of the interior in the original shade of red.

    The restoration was completed around the spring of Mr Woodall retained possession for five years before relinquishing the cabriolet to well-known Southern California-based enthusiast Mike Sheehan, and by the end of , a buyer was found in a Dutch consortium consisting of Pieter Boel and Sander van der Velden. The was then re-imported to Europe, and in , it was purchased by the consignor, a well-known marque collector in the Netherlands.

    The stunning Inter has remained in his possession for nearly 30 years, a period that was highlighted by a repaint in the original colour of black by Autobedrijf Jeff Schuijlenburg of Haarlem, the Netherlands. In more recent years, the unique cabriolet has been exhibited at several European car exhibitions, including the Inter Classics Show at Maastricht, the Netherlands, in January , the Techno Classica in April , and the Goodwood Festival of Speed in June User Contact Media Media Info.
