On the cheap.

Dear Internet,


First, I want you to read this.

Second, pay veddy close attention to the price tag: $481K.

Third, look at the picture.Fourth, now look at this picture.

Intriguing similarities, yes?

Yes. Beyond the very similar bodywork, both are thoroughbred Italian sports cars, both came out in 1966 and both were designed by Battista Pininfarina. Both were made in limited quantities, both were meant for comfortable open-air sportiness and both were manufactured by legendary car companies with extensive pedigrees. But one runs in the half-mil range and another one will cost you $20K.

Good, class. There will be a quiz later.

P.S. The Ferrari is somewhat faster, but for $450,000 more, it bloody well ought to be.
