Ferrari 250 Gt Swb Berlinetta
Owned by the same collector for the past 47 years, this desirable 1961 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta is coming up for auction at the Le Mans Classic in July, where you can expect it to sell for upwards of $10 million.
This Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta Competizione has undergone a comprehensive 14-month restoration process at Ferrari Classiche, reworking everything from the bodywork to the engine, and cloaking it in a beautiful shade of gray with a deep brown interior.
Gooding's auction in Monterey cleared over $128 million in classic cars sales, including three that topped $10 million. A 1961 Ferrari 250 GT SWB California Spider led the pack by selling for $16.83 million.
This one-of-a-kind Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta was designed by Giugiaro and built by Bertone. Now it's going up for auction at Pebble Beach, where it's tipped to fetch around $15 million.
You can't get a vanity license plate in the UK, but Brits have proven their willingness time and time again to part with huge amounts of cash in order to get a particularly desirable number to put on the front and back of their high-priced machinery. This time, a Ferrari collector paid over $800,000 for the license plate "25 O."
