1960 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta Competizione by Scaglietti

It seems unlikely that we’ll ever grow weary of seeking out classic Ferraris for sale (though we’ll never be able to afford one) here at Coolector HQ and the latest to have captured our attention is this, quite frankly stunning, 1960 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta Competizione by Scaglietti that is going under the hammer with the guys at RM Sotheby’s. This majestic looking machine has an impressive race history and it was driven to 5th in class in the model’s race debut at the 1960 12 Hours of Sebring.

With an eye-watering guide price of £7,500,000 – £9,500,000, this 1960 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta Competizione by Scaglietti from RM Sotheby’s is for serious collectors only and if you’re the one lucky enough to get your hands on it by the time the hammer goes down, it will definitely be the crowning glory of your collection. This spectacular steed has a highly successful period race history with 14 podium finishes across over 20 races so it will definitely appeal to any race aficionados out there.

Sensational both inside and out this iconic Ferrari was equipped from new with the more powerful Tipo 168 B engine, a specification that only a very limited number of the 1960 alloy SWB Berlinettas received – something that makes this lot all the more appealing to collectors out there. It is Ferrari Classiche Red Book certified and it retains its matching-numbers chassis, engine, and rear axle so you can be confident you are getting a real piece of racing history with this one.

Presented in truly immaculate condition, it was subject of a recent full Concours-level restoration by Wayne Obry’s Motion Products with final details done by Toni Auto in Maranello with the entirety of the work carried out costing close to $1m – hence the quality of the finish you see before you. It is eligible to be driven in some of the finest motoring events around the world and this jaw-dropping SWB Competizione really is ready to take its place among any of the greatest collections.
