Mafia staff car : Tommaso Buscetta - Ferrari 412

As pointed out by the Wiki, there are two movies about him:

He was portrayed by Pierfrancesco Favino in the 2019 film The Traitor, directed by Marco Bellocchio and selected to compete for the Palme d'Or at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival. Also released in 2019, Our Godfather is a documentary by Mark Franchetti and Andrew Meier which includes onscreen testimony by Buscetta's third wife and surviving children "who still live in anonymity because of fear of reprisal" according to one review.[36]

Currently "Our Godfather" is running on Netflix and does provide this specific photo. I'm unsure if it was his car though ...

for sale : Pete Townshend Ferrari 400i convertible by E.G. Autokraft

This 1980 Ferrari 400i was ordered through H.R. Owen Ferrari of London by Pete Townshend of The Who. It was his personal car and is currently offered from a long-time New York collection. H.R. Owen had the car sent to E.G. Autokraft when new, as Townshend wanted a convertible 400i. The car still wears the original striking colors of Blu Ribot over Crema, all power accessories including the top and quarter windows work perfectly. A great driver, this car presents very nicely. Recent thorough service documentation available along with period photos of the car during Pete Townshend's ownership.
