The 250 GT SWB Berlinetta was the ultimate Ferrari GT for years since its 1950s prototype debuted, with a shape so pure and well balanced that Sergio Pininfarina called it 'the first of our three quantum leaps in design with Ferrari.' One of only 20 cars built, this SEFAC, chassis 2845, was sold new to Count Volpi under the manager’s infamous Scuderia Serenissima. It has an extraordinary racing history that includes a very impressive Third Place at the Tour de France, finishes at the 1000 Km de Paris and Daytona 3-hour Continental as well as multiple Italian hill climbs and vintage races throughout Germany. Gooding & Company presents this rare, certified Ferrari Factory restoration as an exciting Estimate On Request consignment.
