    Is this not the most repulsive thing you have ever seen sporting a Ferrari badge?

    I'd rather eat a whole Skode Estelle than be within two seconds of arc of the longitude or latitude of it's location...

    Im not sure it was. I think it was another coachbuilder who hacked it.

    Besides thats one hell of a practicle ferrari. Think about all the groceries you can get in it!

    The body work was done by Piero Drogo, using the aerodynamic theory of Dr.Kamm at the rear. With this unique and unusual new body the car came to be known as the "Breadvan" (or "Camionette" in France) and took part in races - 1962 at Brands Hatch and Le Mans.

    Thank the Lord for Pininfarina!

    I stand corrected!

    It's still a pig whoever designed it.

    I take it you are not too impressed with the Bertone styling of the 308GT4?

    According to Keith Bluemel, it's a derivative of the 375 America, a 410SA. Most bodied by Pinin Farina, this one was done by Ghia. Late '50s

    At a guess, is it by Zagato on a 250GT SWB chassis?

    It's known as the bread van!

    The white Ferrari looks a bit like one of those Renaults.

    The basic engineering and design was by Giotto Bizzarrini who had previously engineered the 250 GTO (which was not designed by Pininfarina incidentally but by Scaglietti).

    I actually think the Breadvan is a great looking car

    er, I believe Pininfarina was also responsible for the 'Pile of Wank'...!

    I never used to like it, but the car has grown on me a lot. Im not sure that I would buy one, but I can see the appeal.
