The more you look at the Ferrari Breadvan the better it looks. Here is “Gabriele Spangenberg” (Gaby) driving the real Ferrari Breadvan on a race track! What a lucky lady – but we make our own luck, right?
I was able to see it at the Ferrari Museum in April 2013 but I did not get to drive it. I asked but they said “no”.
During my preview of the Russo & Steele auction cars this past August in Monterey I was struck by the Corvette customized to look like the Ferrari Breadvan. They did not say that, they called it a Chevrolet Corvette Wagon. But I knew it was a Breadvan clone.
This “Iso Breadvan” for auction at The Silverstone Classic Sale coming up in the UK is also a fake Breadvan.
Why create a Breadvan replica? It is not the most attractive of cars but it certainly was a fast race car. I don’t know why anyone would want to create a replica Breadvan but there are many things I don’t understand.
I much prefer the real deal and the history of the Ferrari Breadvan to a thousand “replicas”.
