The 30th annual meeting of Ferrari owners known as the Cavallino Classic has taken place in Palm Beach, Florida, USA. Cavallino Magazine established the tradition in early 1990s.
The event amassed over 100 Italian vehicles this year that the organizers of the event judged in two categories. The main category included two dozen ultra-rare supercars and racecars, most notably the 250 SWB and the 250 GTO, that managed to avoid restoration and still survived to this date in their original – if somewhat worn – form. According to Cavallino, bringing each such car back to top driving condition would require between $1 million and $2 million USD on average.
The Scuderia Ferrari Cup awarded to the best restored or best maintained racecar went to a 64-year-old 250 GT Tour de France. The vehicle is evaluated at $45-$60 million USD and holds multiple European awards and titles. The total production run was limited to 36 units back in the time.
The Gran Turismo Ferrari cup went to a 69-year-old 212 Inter Cabriolet Pinin Farina, the only convertible of its kind with a left-hand drive system.
