A 1962 Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta Speciale to Cause Storm at Pebble Beach Auction! 

The one-off Ferrari 250GT is expected to draw a huge amount of interest at Gooding & Company’s Pebble Beach auction on 15-16 August.

The stunning Ferrari was designed by the great Giorgetto Giugiaro and owned by the famous and most influential Italian coachbuilders Nuccio Bertone.  Since its debut in 1962, the car has been praised as a definitive example of Italian automotive design and a coachbuilt Ferrari of incredible beauty and importance.

The 250GT passed through several owners over the years but in 1980 Lorenzo Zambrano bought the car and remained a jewel in his collection for more than 30 years.

The unique Ferrari was displayed at Geneva Auto Salon and Torino Auto Shows and began its concours career in 1982. In 1996 collected the Luigi Chinetti Memorial Trophy and won twice the Best of the Show award at leading international concours.

Despite restorations, the 250 GT retains its original engine, transmission, and chassis and comes complete with books, tools, and a Massini Report.  As Gooding&Company states the 250 GT SWB “… possesses every special quality sought after by discerning collectors.”

The one-of-a-kind Ferrari will be offered at public auction for the first time in its history and is expected to reach between $14m-$16m.
