We have often invoked jazz legend Miles Davis’s magnificent Lamborghini Miura.

That was far from his only Italian sports car indulgence, however.

A Ferrari 250 GT was an early purchase for the master of cool, and in 1967, he acquired one of the most beautiful Ferraris of all time, a 275 GTB/4.


Here he’s pictured in 1969 with the wicked set of wheels, with which he terrorized the streets of Manhattan and generally flaunted any and all traffic laws.

No one tells Miles Davis how to make tracks….
