Is this one of the scarcest Ferrari models ever?

~Rare ONE~ As we all knew, each car that's carrying the Ferrari emblem always made by exclusively in limited quantities. Maybe it has become a kind of tradition, the automaker is always not much in producing each type they issue. This is nothing but to maintain the exclusivity of the brand in the eyes of the world's car enthusiasts.
