1960 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta Competizione
Cue Dr Evil close-up: the combined, estimated sale price of the four Ferraris in this gallery amounts to a whopping $58,000,000. That’s a whisker under £44m. Yup, fourty-four million quid for just four motor cars. Admittedly, they are extraordinarily gorgeous, rare and historically significant motor cars, but still.
We’ll start with the first one above. It is a 1960 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta Competizione. The name should ring familiar: the 250 remains one of Ferrari’s most desirable and iconic nomenclatures, and is responsible for turning many a grown adult into a gibbering wreck.
This particular car, expected to fetch up to $18m, is one of the first SWB Berlinetta competition cars built, and tested by Mssrs Phil Hill, Richie Ginther and Wolfgang von Trips. This car took on the 1960 Le Mans 24hrs, and finished 7th overall. It’s been carefully restored by specialists GTO Engineering, comes ready in its Le Mans livery, was recently certified by the Ferrari Classiche department and is one of the finest competition cars of all time.
