Ferrari 250 GT SWB heading to Bonhams' auction
A stunning example of the epochal 250 GT SWB, one of the most exceptional Ferraris of all time, will be auctioned by Bonhams on August 24, during the world’s most acclaimed car enthusiast week.
Known as a ‘dynamic sculpture’ by Ferrari Head of Design Flavio Manzoni, the Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta has regularly claimed title as one of the greatest sports cars ever made.
The highly competitive model consistently won races with ardour back in its heyday. Completing the package was a 2953cc V12, impeccable suspension and breath-taking lines.
