Note:

Although of English origin, the first owner of this car, John McFadden, ordered a LHD-car for continental driving from Ferrari and refused to accept when Ferrari wanted to sell him 0227EL in RHD-configuration. Therefore Ferrari delivered him another car, this time LHD, which was already stamped 0255EU but restamped to 0227EL (and with the original chassis 0227EL happened the same vice versa. This is why these two cars have swapped identities.
