The first four-cylinder closed-wheel sports racer from Ferrari was the 625 TF in 1953.
The 625 TF used a 2498 cc straight-4 lifted engine from the 625 F1 car instead of the 250's 3000cc V12. It was a small car, with the same 2250 mm wheelbase as the 250 but even lighter at 730 kg. This lightweight car debuted at the hands of Mike Hawthorn at Monza on June 29, 1953.
Vignale built three sports cars: two spyders (#0304TF and #0306TF) and single closed 625 TF coupè ( #0302TF) in the Spring of 1953. Only the #0304TF survived.

I think that the last (and wonderful) picture should be the long time lost and one-off 500 mondial by Vignale sn 0452, now PF spyder

Maybe. You know the 500 mondial had a 2.0 L version of Lampredi's four cylinder engine. Unfortunately we can't take a look under the bonnet, but there isn't any evidence about a #0452 chassis in the Michelotti register.
We must to solve this mistery....

Two sources by Barchetta (0302TF seems to be a quite misterious car)
First:
http://www.barchetta.cc/english/all.fer ... .625TF.htm
another source: see images

Anyway, without knowing the source of the pictures and seeing the engine we can not know. OK. let's trust Marcel !

The last book about Vignale and Michelotti confirms the coupè #0302TF doesn't exist anymore, but i can't say if it burned, crashed or something else. The photos posted by Aymami were taken in the same court of mine. That's the same car, no doubt.
We know many Ferraris donated the engine or the chassis to another, so the research goes on...

Yes I confirm that the last pic in your first post and the pics of Aymami in his first post are one and the same car.

You are referring to the last book about Vignale and Michelotti. The last book about this subject that I purchased was 'Vignale con Michelotti Designer' published in 10/2009, but I can't find s/n numbers in it, nor does it mention that the car doesn't exist anymore.
So, are there other books about Vignale and Michelotti that I don't know the existence of?
Title, author, publisher and ISBN number please! :)

Yes, that's the book, but i can't answer to you because i lended it actually.
Anyway, i spoke with Michelotti's son last summer and he told me the car doesn't exist anymore. Did you try to cross your data with mine?
