Chassis: 0313EU
First shown at the 1953 Paris Auto Salon, this is the second of two 250 Europa chassis fitted by Vignale with a coupe body. Shortly after its debut, it was sold to the United States where it passed through various hands. In the 1960s, the complicated V12 was replaced by a supercharged Chevrolet V8, and the car was painted purple. In derelict condition and with a replacement engine, chassis 0313EU eventually ended up in the hands of classic car broker Tom Shaughnessy, who showed the restoration project at various shows.

In September 2009, he finally found a Swiss enthusiast ready to take on the challenge. Instead of outsourcing the work to specialist professionals, the Ferrari collector personally did all the work. He returned the car to its original two-tone finish with an impressive eye for detail. Early in 2012, the work was completed and the car made its debut at that year's Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este.
