1961 Ferrari 250 GT SWB California Spider
Sale Price: $17,160,000
Auction: Gooding & Co., Amelia Island
The California Spider is the quintessential collector Ferrari, and this one is a perfect example. One of 37 built with covered headlights, the Ferrari 250 GT was delivered new in Milan and had three owners. As Gooding & Company President and Founder David Gooding said before the auction, “With only three owners from new and a rich and fascinating history, this covered-headlight SWB California Spider has never before been offered for public sale and is being presented for the first time outside of Italy.” Power comes from a 3.0-liter V12 engine producing 240 horsepower with a 4-speed manual gearbox.
