1961 FERRARI GT SWB BERLINETTA

Unique Cars - - AUCTION ACTION -

WE'VE YET to see an es­ti­mate on this one, but start think­ing well into eight fig­ures. Prices in ex­cess of $15 mil­lion are typ­i­cal.

The 250 se­ries has be­come so valu­able that there is an in­ter­na­tional cot­tage in­dus­try in hand-build­ing mil­lion dol­lar repli­cas that own­ers can ac­tu­ally drive.

This car has a li­brary of doc­u­men­ta­tion, a long show his­tory, and has been ser­viced by the same work­shop (al­beit a spe­cial­ist work­shop to the stars) for 40 years. So the bid­ding will be fierce.

This auc­tion will be worth watch­ing as this is one of 13 high-end Fer­raris on the block at the same event.
