The Ugliest Ferrari In History Is For Sale

by Mike –

Piero Drogo created many beautiful race car and GT car designs but with this modified Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 he slipped up.

This Ferrari Drogo Navarro Special NART will be for sale at the Gooding auction in Monterey in a few weeks.

Gooding calls it a 1966 Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 Speciale. The estimate is $400,000 – $600,000.

More of my photos of this special Ferrari from Concorso Italiano 2013 are here.

  1. Unique looking but not ugly!

  2. ‘Finned Fyler’

    Would you have used the same headline were it being sold on your website?

    • Mel,

      That is a very good question. The answer is probably “no”.

      However, I was not complimentary to this design when I first wrote about it last year, long before it was for sale. I much prefer the original 330 GT 2+2 body style and I like the quad headlight version which is not popular among Ferrari lovers.

      I am a Drogo fan, he was involved in the body making of the early Bizzrrini GT 5300 but he did slip on this one, maybe he was just following some one else’s design but it is still not attractive.

      • Mel Walters says

        Thanks for your honesty, Mike!

        I, by the way, agree with your ‘subjectivity’, but my question was sincere.

  4. I saw it in person at Concorso Italiano and I thought it looked pretty good. It’s unique design and color make it stand out in a sea of forgettable red F cars. The restoration was top notch and I am sure the new owner will get a lot of attention wherever he takes it.

    • Mike,

      Yes it is unique but that doesn’t make it attractive. It does indeed stand out but I would rather have the yellow quad headlight 330 GT 2+ 2 that was parked near by last year at Concorso Italiano. Attention will certainly be directed at this GoldenCar.

  5. At the recent Cavallino Classic a knowledgable Ferrari authority, who will remain unnamed, postulated that this might have been the outcome following an accident in traffic in which the front and rear of the donor car was damaged and replaced by Drogo.

    • As I understood from the owner it was made special for a nite club owner . The only thing I can’t figure out is the tail lights. I think they came off a later series car.

  6. The Ferrari 400 is still worse, and slower.

    I too thought this car was by some George Barris wanna=be and was shocked that it was by a well known bodybuilder who has made better looking cars by far.
    However, you never know if the owner commissioning the custom body drew a ratty picture , handed it to the coachbuilder and said “This is what I want.” I remember when Straman looked a little sheepish when I saw him showing a customer’s 275GTB that had been whored up like a 250GTO with same side vents hood air inlets, etc. and he just said “Hey, it’s what the customer wanted.”

    I’d like to know if back in this car’s past it was ever offered at a rock bottom price in the classifieds or in FML and what year that was and the price? I imagine there were years or decades, when it was ignored.
