Sold for $752,406 (€582,400) at 2012 RM Auctions at Monaco.
There were 18 examples of the first-generation Europa built, followed by a second series introduced in late 1954, named the Europa GT. The most notable change was a new Colombo V-12 engine that brought 20 additional horsepower over the original Lampredi unit. The engine became the workhorse engine for the remaining 250 GT iterations. In total, there were roughly 34 examples of the Europa GT produced.

This Europa GT was sent to Pinin Farina for coachwork on June 17th of 1955. After the work was completed, the car was delivered to Pietro Barilla, the heir to the Barilla pasta conglomerate in Parma, Italy. It is believed that just after a year in Mr. Barilla's possession, this Europa was returned to the factory, and Mr. Barilla took delivery of another Ferrari, a 410 Superamerica, with chassis number 0495SA. The original engine from 0391GT was then removed and installed in chassis number 0357GT, the very first Europa GT, which was being race-campaigned by Jacque Swaters's Ecurie Francorchamps.

0391GT was imported to the United States for sale by Luigi Chinetti by the early 1960s. It was shortly thereafter purchased by King Sims of Atlanta, Georgia. A Seattle-based collector owned the car during the 1970s and by 1972, the car was fitted with a proper replacement engine, a 2,953 cc Colombo V-12 motor sourced from 0727GT, an early Ellena-bodied 250 GT produced in 1957.

During the 1980s, the car was in California ownership. The car was sold in November of 1988 to Dr. Heiner Oettli, a dentist residing in Niederrohrdorf, Switzerland. Two years later, 0391GT was acquired by Sportgarage's Bruno Wyss, an official Ferrari dealer in Zofingen, Switzerland. In 1998, it was sold to fellow Swiss citizen Christophe Ringier, who commissioned a full restoration.

The car was refinished in its original livery of Grigio Fiat paint with a Panno Grigio interior and blue leather sides. Upon completion, the car was exhibited at the 2002 Concorso d'Elegance Villa d'Este, winning the Trofeo Pininfarina for the most significant Pinin Farina body. 0391GT was also depicted in the June 2002 issue of Auto D'Epoca magazine and was further exhibited at the 2004 Retromobile exhibition in Paris.

In 2012, the car was offered for sale at RM Auctions in Monaco where it was estimated to sell for €520.000-€580.000. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of €582.400, inclusive of buyer's premium.
