Sale Price: $13,500,000
Auction: Gooding & Co.
In October 1959 Ferrari debuted the all-new 250 GT Berlinetta at the Paris Auto Salon. The 250 GT SWB Berlinetta was available in road-going form with a steel body, or in competition specification with lightweight aluminum coachwork. The 250 GT SWB Berlinetta shown here — chassis no. 1759 GT — is the sixth example built and among the very first competition cars completed for the 1960 model year. As noted on Ferrari build sheets for 1759 GT, this car was purpose-built to compete in the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
