1962 Ferrari 250 GT SWB08/15/2014
We were the underbidder on the 1962 250 GT SWB Speciale Aerodinamico 3615 GT last night - the winning bid was $6,875,000 including commission.
From the Bonhams catalogue - "During that period of deep recession within the classic car market, '3615 GT' passed to Talacrest Ltd of Egham, England, who advertised it for sale yet again in the Ferrari Market Letter, Volume 19 number 4, described as bing "dark blue with tan hides and carpets, the fourth and last 250 GT SWB with 400 Super America-style coachwork, asking price US $400,000". It was then that the car was acquired by Fabrizio Violati for his Collezione Maranello Rosso in San Marino."
Talacrest had this for sale at £125k(!) some twenty years ago...and eventually sold it to Fabrizio Violati.
