Photo of the day: yes, it’s a Ferrari ‘breadvan’
Standard 250 GT far too common? You need one of these
Unquestionably the fastest way to deliver ciabatta, this one-off started life in Maranello in 1961 as a short-wheelbase 250 GT Berlinetta. After a season in racing, it was bought by Conti Volpi di Misurati, who handed it over to engineer Giotto Bizzarrini with the instruction to make it faster.
Bizzarrini’s modifications worked: the ‘Breadvan’, as it was christened, ran well at the 1962 24 Hours of Le Mans before its race was ended with transmission problems. It was recently restored to its former glory by Ferrari’s ‘Classiche’ department.
