Having won many awards over the years, this one-off Scaglietti Ferrari has done it again. You're looking at the Best in Show at the 2014 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.

Chassis number 0402AM is Ferrari's first passenger car. It also looked very different when it first left the factory, headed straight to film director Roberto Rosselini's already impressive (and red) collection as a used race car with a spyder body by Pininfarina. The great director then crashed her into a tree, so that 0402AM ended up back at the factory for repairs before arriving to Scaglietti's workshop.

Rosselini felt it was time to turn his 330 hp V12 racer into a classy passenger car, and Scaglietti got to work, creating a unique aluminum body that took more than a year to finish. Some say even Enzo was impressed by the results.

Microsoft's former President, Jon Shirley of Washington bought the car in 1995, and it looks like he is still satisfied with the purchase.
