The connoisseur’s choice
Taking clear inspiration from the 1960s shark-nosed Ferrari racers, the 156 F1 and the 330 TRI LM, this Bertone-bodied Ferrari 250 GT SWB made its debut at the 1962 Geneva Motor Show. An undeniably beautiful car, its body was radically different from that of Pininfarina’s on the standard SWB, as was the burgundy leather interior, which was far more luxurious. One of the most sought-after coachbuilt Ferraris, the car has resided in Lorenzo Zambrano’s famous collection for the last 35 years. Now Classic Driver dealer Talacrest is offering it for sale, complete with Classiche certification and matching numbers. In terms of criteria for the discerning Ferrari collector, this carticks all the boxes.
