Sellers: "I'm keeping it for ever. I don't want anybody else to drive it but me - just as I don't want anybody else kissing my wife. If the Dorchester catches fire, I've told them to leave it right where it is in the garage. Don't even touch it. I'd sooner see it burn and the ashes thrown in the Ganges. That's the colour of the car anyway, Ganges-brown."

"Sellers is the complete automaniac. He owned a Jaguar for one day, a Volvo for two, a Rover for three. He advertised a Rolls-Royce: 'Titled car wants to dispose of owner.' His celebrated every-possible-modification Mini cost a total of £3000. And he disposed of a white Ferrari 330GT 2+2. 'I didn't like the white around me', he said in a Negro revolutionary accent. 'I left it out in the bright sun for a week and it was still white. So I sold it.'
Sellers was after a Superfast as soon as it was announced. He bought the one exhibited at the 1965 Motor Show in London. 'I would imagine this is the perfect sports car. It's got power, comfort, looks. But the best thing about it is its manoeuvrability.'" -> http://www.ferrarichat.com/forum/showthread.php?t=270603

No current owner? Not dead I hope...

My 2nd link above suggests it went to Belgium in 99, but I haven't tried tracing it further.

...also it says Export "N" but that might be wrong.

Alleged quote from Enzo Ferrari when announcing the decision to build the Superfast 'The next one will have twelve cylinders, each one as big as a Chianti flask......'.

Cross-reference to 6189 PK in comments at /vehicle.php?id=20740 . The youtube link ^ is useful for establishing it was black, not purple . As for models - avoid that Corgi one, it's based on their 1:36 toy with Mk3 grille and rear lights. Their Vanguards 1:43 VA02532 is much better - Link to "www.corgi.co.uk" , although the picture is a pre-pro mock-up so not as good as the model - see http://www.ehattons.com/StockDetail.aspx?sid=27724 .

On the other side it's going on smaller, but with a higher percentage. The term "Schnapsglasklasse" is a set phrase at motorcycle-races for the 50ccm-class.
