The whole collection
Luigi Chinetti, founder of the North American Racing Team (an official arm of Ferrari) entered this 375 MM for the celebrated Dominican playboy Porfirio Rubirosa and Italian nobleman Count Innocente Biaggio.
In the fifth round, Count Biaggio’s car spun out and bogged down at Mulsanne. He got out of the car and, wearing a light grey Alpaca suit, a silk shirt and a black bowtie, set about digging out the car. After an hour of effort he gave up, cleaned his hands, dusted off his trousers and shoes, replaced his hat and lit a cigarette.
Those were the days !
