Looking at the Taimar and the S3, it’s difficult to believe that more than a decade separates them – or that they book-end the glorious white 350i that’s thundering around our temporary paddock at the Bruntingthorpe track.
Whenever I read Letters to the editor in some magazines, people complain about the relevance of the Lamborghinis, the Enzo Ferraris and the SLR McLarens: no-one can drive these things quickly, so what’s the point of having them?
Celebrating a glorious racing past, these cars are finally getting the respect they deserve.
1961 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta SEFAC Hot Rod
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.
