Auction Block: 1962 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta By Scaglietti

Originally unveiled at the Paris Auto Show in October of 1959, Ferrari’s 250 GT SWB Berlinetta was an immediate jaw-dropping hit. And that wasn’t just because it looked good, as it went on to sweep the podium spots at the 1960 Le Mans 24-hour in the grand tourer category. And now, an astoundingly well-kept 1962 example is headed to the auction block, courtesy of RM Sotheby’s.

Available during the Monterey auction starting on the 15th of August, this car is in such incredible condition, you might think it came right off the factory floor. In truth, however, it’s been fully restored to factory standards and was even Ferrari Classiche certified. One of just 40 steel-bodied SWB Berlinettas from 1962, this one features a Tipo 168/61 V12 engine, Abarth exhaust, and Borrani wire wheels. One of the most exceptional 250 GT SWB examples in existence, it’s expected to fetch a high price — in the range of $8-$10 million — although there is no reserve set. See it for yourself when it goes under the hammer at Monterey this August.

Purchase: $8,000,000+
