For Sale : RHD Black Ferrari 412 with red interior

This Ferrari 412 advert showed up:

https://www.pistonheads.com/classifieds/used-cars/ferrari/412/1986-ferrari-412-auto/10015072

And it does mention it's first owner and how he lost it:

"it was first ordered by the English entrepreneur peter de savary and delivered to his London club he then at some point lost it in a card game all very extravagant!"

(The story is that a bet was made on the 14th hole at the Westerhope golf course. A previous owner won the bet and received the car from De Savary).

More about the man can be read in this Wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_de_Savary

I did try to reach out to him but unfortunately I never got a response ...

The current owner/seller does make this remarkable statement about the 412:

"She’s drives and pulls fantastically in fact she drives better than my 456"

Apparently he's a liker as he wants to buy a 400 Manual instead now.

For Sale Ferrari 400 Auto - Vladimiro Galluzzi

I noticed this advert:

https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C1156904

According to the supporting information the car was owned for 10 years by the Italian racing driver Vladimiro Galluzzi:

"This car is the GT by excellence, powered by that famous V12 Ferrari it combines confort and beauty of the 70's. The famous Italian racing driver Vladimiro Galluzzi knew it and owned that car for 10 years."

Never heard of him before but when checking it looks like he was an older chap doing races in the 50 and 60 ties:
