It's a fact of life: Pretty people get stuff for free. Raquel Welch drove a rare 1965 Ferrari 275 GTS in the movie Fathom (1967), and she liked it a lot. Hey, it's a Ferrari convertible, who wouldn't like driving it? Director Leslie H. Martinson noted Welch's affection for the car, and gave it to her for keeps after filming was complete. Only 200 of this model, also called a 275 GTS Pininfarina Spyder, were made during a production run that began in 1964 and ended in 1966. According to meticulous Ferrari-trackers, Welch sold hers in 1975 to -- no joke -- a lady in Peoria, Illinois.
