As Monterey 2019 draws closer, we know that petrolheads the world over will be itching to get started. RM Sotheby’s Monterey auction will run from 15-17 August and the line up is looking stronger than ever. Punctuated by iconic Ferrari builds, the Cavallino Rampante is alive and kicking in Monterey. One of the strongest examples to hit the auction block with be this 1962 Ferrari 250 California SWB Spider by Scaglietti.
While this model was favoured by celebrities who would take it for occasional trips around Beverly Hills, it was made for racing. One of its greatest achievements, and one that has rarely been done since is finishing 12th overall in 24 Hours of Le Mans and 3rd in Class in 12 Hours of Sebring – an achievement in itself, right? An achievement made all the more impressive by the fact that the Ferrari 250 California Spider was a street-legal machine racing purpose-built racers.
