Top Ferraris at Gooding Pebble Beach 2023
1962 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta
The 1962 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta (Estimate: $9,000,000 – $11,000,000) is the most expensive car on offer at the Gooding Pebble Beach 2023 classic car auction.
Between 1960 and 1963, just 165 SWB Berlinettas of all types were built, including this car, chassis 3507 GT. Delivered new to Italian industrialist Giovanni Renato Scalabrin, 3507 GT was finished in the tasteful, understated color scheme of Grigio Metallizzatto (Metallic Gray) with beige leather upholstery.
Now in the care of its fourth owner, the 1962 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta GT is particularly noteworthy for its remarkably original and well-preserved condition. Unlike most 250-series Ferraris, this example has never been restored; instead, it has been regularly exercised and maintained in good working order. This SWB retains its original beige leather upholstery, complemented by the car’s mottled gray paintwork, and its original details throughout – original glass, period Irvin seat belts, and proper Borrani RW3690 wire wheels. Even original grease pencil markings bearing the chassis number remain intact underneath the trunk lid. The SWB Berlinetta has only covered approximately 53,000 km (33,000 miles) from new.
1962 Ferrari 400 Superamerica Series I Coupé Aerodinamico
The 1962 Ferrari 400 Superamerica Series I Coupé Aerodinamico (Estimate: $3,500,000 – $4,500,000), Chassis 3221 SA, is one of just 14 examples of the Coupé Aerodinamico built on the original short-wheelbase chassis exclusive to the Series I 400 Superamericas. Just seven examples of the Series I Coupé Aerodinamico were originally specified with the desirable covered-headlight treatment, a signature Pininfarina flourish. Completed by Ferrari in March 1962, this Coupé Aerodinamico was originally finished in Bianco (white) and upholstered in Grigio (gray) Connolly leather.
1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4
The 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 (Estimate: $3,250,000 – $3,750,000), chassis 09909, is presented in its original factory color scheme of Giallo Fly (Fly Yellow) over Nero (Black) leather. The car was delivered new to Sweden and has been enthusiast-owned for decades. It comes to market with Ferrari Classiche Red Book certification and has been documented by Ferrari historian Marcel Massini. 09909 is a remarkably low-mileage example, showing just 29,000 miles.
1991 Ferrari F40
The 1991 Ferrari F40 (Estimate: $3,000,000 – $3,750,000), chassis 87568, is the 105th of 213 examples built for the US market. Delivered new to Texas, it has been collector-owned from the start, with just four owners in total.
The F40 received a Platinum Award in the F40’s debut at the 2019 Ferrari Club of America National Concours in Phoenix, as well as the prestigious Ferrari Supercar Cup and yet another Platinum Award at the 2020 Cavallino Classic in Florida. It comes to market with less than 1,800 miles on the clock.
1952 Ferrari 340 America Berlinetta
The 1952 Ferrari 340 America Berlinetta (Estimate: $3,000,000 – $4,000,000), chassis 0202 A, is one of fewer than 30 ever produced. It comes with a rich in-period racing record.
First tested by the factory on June 1, 1952, 0202 A was sent to France just five days later to contest the 24 Hours of Le Mans, entered by Luigi Chinetti. Painted French Racing Blue and wearing no. 14, the car was piloted by French privateer racers André Simon and Lucien Vincent. Despite a bad clutch and only two working gears when it crossed the finish line, the car placed a remarkable fifth overall and second in class.
After Le Mans, 0202 A was sold to Luigi Chinetti and raced throughout the summer and fall at various events. It soon made its way to Los Angeles-based racer Ernie McAfee, and Jack McAfee drove it at the Lone Star National Sports Car Races.
After passing through the hands of several owners, 0202 A joined the collection of the consignor in 2013, who then commissioned the Ferrari Classiche department in Maranello to restore the car to its 1952 Le Mans configuration. The 340 made its post-restoration debut to great acclaim at the Casa Ferrari display at the 2019 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance®. The 340 America is certified as having its original engine and chassis by Ferrari Classiche, with accompanying Certificato per Vetture da Competizione and white-striped Red Book.
1966 Ferrari 275 GTB
The 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB (Estimate: $2,800,000 – $3,500,000), chassis 08545, is a late-production example configured in the desirable long-nose, torque-tube specification. Delivered new in Padova, Italy upon completion in May 1966, 08545 was finished in the elegant and rarely seen combination of Verde Medio (Medium Green) over Beige Scuro (Dark Beige) leather upholstery, the color scheme that it still presents in today. Remarkably, this 275 GTB has had just two private owners throughout the past five decades and has remained in Southern California for its entire time in the States.
1968 Ferrari 330 GTS
The 1968 Ferrari 330 GTS (Estimate: $2,200,000 – $2,700,000), chassis 10913 was specified for US delivery and came equipped with optional Borrani wire wheels, air-conditioning, and instrumentation in miles. It was completed in the fall of 1967 and factory finished in its original color combination of Argento Metallizzato (Metallic Silver) over Rosso Scuro (Dark Red) leather upholstery.
