Here’s your opportunity to bid on a very important part of Ferrari history. A one-of-a-kind 1961 Ferrari 400 Superamerica Series I Coupé Aerodinamico, originally owned by Italian nobleman Count Giovanni Volpi di Misurata will be auctioned by Gooding & Company at Pebble Beach, with a pre-sale estimate of $4M-$5M for this rare gem, described as “perhaps the finest original and best-preserved example extant.”
Is it possible to choose one Ferrari that epitomized the marque in its classic era? Selecting a “top five” would be hard enough. Yet, when you consider that Ferrari road cars remained closely related to its GT racers for the first 15 years or so of the marque’s history, there is one that leaps forward: the 1959-1962 250 GT Berlinetta SWB.
