The 1924 Isotta Fraschini Tipo 8A won Best in Show during the 2015 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. There were also a lot of other stunning machinery in Monterey, but naming all of them would take a lot of time, and it couldn’t possibly fit in one article. So we’ll simply put our focus on one brand, and that would be the famous Ferrari.
Below are photos of numerous Ferrari automobiles that are truly spectacular. Prepare to be amazed with these wonderful automobiles.

This model’s remarkable past tells a story of being raced by Carroll Shelby and owned by Andy Warhol, and it’s also one of only three Ferrari 857S Spyders built. Similar to the Jaguar D-Type, another race car from that era, it’s the only 875S to feature a tail fin.

Only three LMs were sent to race in the 1965 24 Hours of Le Mans, and this vehicle is one of them. Though it only finished sixth overall behind another 250 LM, which won the race that year, its victory marked the last time Ferrari won the famous endurance race.
8. 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB/C Scaglietti Berlinetta
Only twelve of the aluminum-bodied cars were constructed, and this one was finished just four days before competing in the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans. The 275 GTB Berlinetta Competizione was built on a completely new chassis for the 1966 race season.
9. 1967 Ferrari 330 GTS Pininfarina Spyder
