High bid of $600,000 at 2009 Automobiles of Arizona. (did not sell)
Sold for $1,017,500 at 2013 RM Auctions - Arizona.
The 250 GT Europa was introduced alongside the 375 America at the 1953 Paris Auto Salon. This was the first road-going Ferrari identified by the 250 series nomenclature. This was also Ferrari's first true Gran Turismo. It was the only Ferrari 250 to be powered by the Aurelio Lampredi-designed V12 engine, which was originally designated for racing use. The engine produced over 200 horsepower and could carry the Europa to speeds of 135 mph with zero-to-sixty times of under 8 seconds.

Over a twelve month period, Pinin Farina bodied only 17 Europas, 16 of them were coupes. Nearly every example was sent to the United States, but Charlie Chaplin, Princess de Réthy of Belgium, and Prince Bernhard of Holland each took delivery of one. Enzo Ferrari would later become an owner.

This car, chassis number 0343 EU, was originally owned to Dr. Achille Stazzi of Milan, Italy. It left the factory finished in a two-tone grey. In the late 1950s, it was sent to the United States and sold to Wayne Sparling of Florida. It was sold in the 1960s to Preston Henn of Fort Lauderdale, FL. When he acquired chassis 06885 (a Ferrari 275 GTB/C), he sold the Europa.

The car was owned by James C. Hall of Michigan, beginning in 1971. The next owner was Harley Cluxton III. Bob Slayden purchased the car and sold it in 1972. By the 1990s, the car was owned by Paul Forbes of Los Angeles before being purchased by Charles Betz and Fred Peterson. Peterson treated the car to a nut-and-bolt restoration in 2004. It was shown at the Cavallino Classic where it was awarded with a Platinum Award. It was then shown at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance where it placed third in class.

In 2009, this 250 Europa Coupe was offered for sale at the Automobiles of Arizona auction presented by RM Auctions. It was estimated to sell for $750,000 - $850,000. The lot was sold for the sum of $600,000, including buyer's premium.
