Rare 1960 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta By Scaglietti is Expected to Be Sold for $7.5 Million

Classic Ferraris are considered the most treasured cars in the world of car collectors. This is why it isn’t a surprise that a rare 1960 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta by Scaglietti is expected to be sold for $7.5 million at an upcoming auction organized by RM Sotheby’s.

The 1960 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta by Scaglietti is widely considered one of the best Ferraris ever made. A total of 165 units were manufactured, and the car had a shorter wheelbase compared to the standard 250 GT and featured a lighter chassis and more aerodynamic bodywork for better road performance. It won the Tour de France Automobile for three consecutive years between 1960 and 1962.

The 1960 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta by Scaglietti offered by RM Sotheby’s is numbered 34 out of 165. It was featured in a number of races and rallies, including Tour de France, Le Mans, and Goodwood Motor Circuit. The car was previously owned by British car driver Robert Lamplough and was fully restored by reputable car restorer Carrozzeria Autosport back in 2009.

The vehicle will be part of the Cliveden House sale organized by RM Sotheby’s in June.  

“As an example of one of Ferrari’s most famous designs, this car is ready to be enjoyed as part of a collection, on show at marque events, or entered into its latest competitive outings,” RM Sotheby’s said in a press release.
