In the ensuing decades, the Ferrari was enjoyed by several subsequent owners, all within Italy, until its purchase by P. Paul Pappalardo. Mr. Pappalardo bought the Ferrari in about 2005 and initially kept it in Italy, entrusting it to SportAuto Modena for significant restorative work.

During the remaining 20 years it has been owned by three additional stewards, all using the car sparingly, as demonstrated by its current mileage of 39,025.
