Auction Block: 1962 Sharknose Ferrari 250 GT

This “Sharknose” Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta Speciale is one of the rarest Ferraris in the world. It’s designed by automotive design legend Giorgetto Giugiaro in 1962.

Giugiaro designed this car when he was just 23 years old, taking inspiration from the 156 F1, 330 TRI LM and the 246 SP racing cars. He and his boss at the time, Giuseppe Bertone, imagined a car that was as aggressive as it was elegant. It sports a 240 horsepower engine that hits 7,000 RPM, three Weber 40 DCZ6 carburetors, and a V-12 engine. One of the most notable qualities of their creation is the sharknose front end which was unlike any other road car at the time, and it is just one of the many aspects that the duo made to make an already desirable car even more outstanding. This one-of-a-kind car is expected to break records at the Pebble Beach auction next month with an estimated sale price in the range of $14,000,000 to $16,000,000. [Purchase]
