At the 1955 Turin Motorshow Pinin Farina unveiled a 375 MM based special that introduced a new Ferrari design direction that would be followed throughout the second half of that decade. Not only was it a start of a new era, it was also the end of one; it was the last even numbered Ferrari bodied by the Turin based coach builder. All of the future racing cars were bodied by specialists like Scaglietti or Fantuzzi, or by the factory themselves.

Sometime in its history the unique car's colours were changed from the original ivory and metallic blue to red and black. After a long time ownership, the current owner acquired the Turin show car s/n 0490AM in 2002. He had it fully restored to its original livery and debuted it at the 2004 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. It was awarded best in class, and went on to win a number of other prestigious concours d'elegances in the following months like the Cavallino Classic. The car's tour of the major events was rounded off in style, at the Villa d'Este Concorzo d'Eleganza.

After its journey around the world, chassis 0490AM was not seen in public for several years. It finally reappeared in 2010 when it was acquired by a British broker. Since then it has been shown at a few events and featured in several magazines.
