Ferrari’s short wheelbase (SWB) 250 GT is one of history’s finest automotive platforms, and its lineage runs deep. Throughout its history, the vehicle has taken on the world’s finest race tracks, showrooms, and conventions, making it one of the most sought-after classics of all time — and now, one has just gone up for sale via Auxietre & Schmidt.

The 1961 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta that you see here is yet another Scaglietti-born model, garnering its reputation as one of Pininfarina’s “greatest masterpieces.” Like its brethren, it’s powered by a rambunctious, but beautiful Colombo-designed 3.0-liter V12 engine, and features a set of upgraded competition 40-DLC-6 carburetors, courtesy of its first owner. Over its 40-year ownership history, the car would pass through the hands (and garages) of many a world-class collector, taking on the Auvergne 3 hrs in Clermont-Ferrand in 1963, the Ollon-Villars and Sierre-Crans Montana hill climbs, and the 1998 Tour Auto throughout its career. Now, the impeccably-kept model is housed in one of the world’s foremost Ferrari collections, where both its Classiche certification and history are regularly discussed. The car is currently listed for sale on Auxietre & Schmidt for an undisclosed sum.
