    I'd imagine that if not exactly, they likely were very close to same quality, since they essentially were custom-/hand-made one-offs produced in extremely limited quantities to ultra wealthy buyers accustomed to very best and finest appointments and detail any high-end coach-built motor vehicle manufacturers could offer.
    One should compare these with a modern "special order, SP-, etc models rather than "standard"(?) V8 or V12 production cars.

    The "pumping out road cars" didn't really start until later (late '50s/early '60s ?) when demand grew enough for the company to afford manufacturing of more modestly(?) priced, larger scale production cars.

    Great to hear. It took work to be able to solidify the arrangements with Kaspersky Lab and them in turn with Fisi for him to attend. Part of the scheduling issue was that he is an on air commentator for the F1 broadcast in Italy. As such, he could not leave Milan until after the telecast was finished.

    But as it got confirmed it also got Remo to send his GT3 car for Giancarlo to use on the track.

    An important distinction. My opinion is that *some* would be, the Vignale road cars being prominent in that group. The level of design and detailing among the road cars they dressed for Ferrari, I think, parallels any of the 'best' of anything post war. They really are jewel pieces in some respects.
