Beyond rare and beyond stunning we bathed in liquid black
paint polished to Bella Macchina perfection, the
Ghia 8V
remains a favorite of Todd Helme. This particular
automobile is the culmination of the dreams of its current
owner. This black on red beauty once belongs to 1950's
Hollywood Starlet Lena Turner, but unless she was behind the
wheel cruising
Wilshire, we doubt it has ever looked so good.
Sadly, like most brand new Ferraris, this beautiful black Ferrari
430 Scuderia was littered with numerous scratches and
manufacturing defects in the paint. (Sanding marks and runs).
The owner requested that this car, polished in 2009, was
perfected before he ever took it for a drive. Forty hours of
polishing and paint enhancement later, Ferrari's most race
focused road car shone like the best finished show car.
