This is a stunning and rare example in the Original Factory Black with original Beige interior and it also being a 2.4 litre engined model, which was built in 1970 and is chassis number 1194 – there were 179 built that year out of a total production run between 1969 to 1973 of only 424.
It was first registered in March 1970 in the Treviso area in Italy.
The first owner was Prince Egon Sebastian von Furstenberg, who was a very famous fashion stylist of the era. He was the son of Ira Furstenberg, renowned Italian actress, and was a nephew of Mr Gianni Agnelli, chairman of Fiat Auto. This vehicle was believed to be his first car. Egon died in May, 2005.
The second owner Carlo, was a well-known surgeon, born in 1915, again in the Treviso area of Italy. He bought the car in 1971 and sold it latter that year to Claudio Rosimetti, a personal friend of Gianni Agnelli (they were at the same school).
In 1993, Claudio sold the car to Mr Alexandre Alexandre,
the Fiat/Alfa/Lancia agent for Treviso, to put into his personal Ferrari & Fiat collection ( picture taken in collection ).
It remained there till 2005 when we personally viewed the car in the collection, prior to arranging the purchase on behalf of its current owner - a New Zealand collector in 2005. and then it was then exported to New Zealand. Where it has been maintained regardless of expense with a fully rebuilt engine in 2010, new clutch, brakes, tyres etc.
The car comes with numerous receipts including the original Italian registration papers, showing the full ownership history and also with a extremely rare & valuable Factory supplied hard top.
We have a very detailed photographic file and also the car has been the subject of an editorial in Classic Car in New Zealand.
This car is available in New Zealand though ourselves or our associate there at 80,000 euros.
"Sorry" this car is now being held on deposit for its new owner to arrive & collect in New Zealand.
Shipping can be arranged worldwide.
