Keeping with the Italian theme, there is yet another Ferrari, this one named Angelina – and Angelina is one hot beauty. A 1999 Ferrari 550 Maranello, this car would be in high demand with car thieves simply because there were only a little over 3,000 made in the entire world.
1987 Ferrari Testarossa (codename: Rose)

1956 Ford T-Bird (codename: Susan)
