Our own Augustin Sabatié-Garat took the Ferrari 290 MM for a spin in its native Italy last week. With Gus behind the wheel and @remidargegenphotographies behind the lens, we think they really did this incredible racing machine justice.
Boasting a CV of legendary races and drivers, the Classiche-certified 290 MM represents an incredibly rare opportunity to acquire a proper Scuderia Ferrari works barchetta in exceptional form.
