Last year, the RM Sotheby’s Monterey auction broke all kinds of records, including the first Ford GT40 to win the Le Mans and even a $48 million Ferrari 250 GTO. Finding a way to improve on such an extraordinary auction seems a little farfetched, but RM Sotheby's Sotheby’s is already gearing up to pushing it quite close thanks to this 1962 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta, that is set to be offered between 15th-17th August 2019 in Monterey without reserve but with an estimate of $8 million to $10 million.
The 250 GT is considered by many to be the peak of Ferrari’s front-engined V12 cars, so it’s no surprise that this one is set to be leading the bill at Monterey. This specific 1962 250 GT SWB – short wheelbase is one of only 40 steel-bodied cars made during the final production run and was offered only to the most dedicated Ferrari clients.
Better still, the car received a complete restoration by Ferrari Classiche in 2010 and carries the all-important Ferrari Classiche certification. So, you can consider it to be an investment piece.
This beautiful and incredibly powerful 250 GT will head up to auction in August during RM Sotheby’s Monterey sale, so you have a little bit of time to save up. Check it out in all of its glory in the image gallery above and learn more about the build via RM Sotheby’s website.
