Set to hit the auction block later this month is this super rare Ferrari that could very well reach north of the $10 million USD mark. This 1957 Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta Competizione “Tour de France” is one of only 72 made and is the very model that helped shape the modernized F12 version many know and love today.
Under the hood lies a respectable 3.0-liter, V12 engine capable of producing 258 horsepower, while the black racing stripe running down the middle, in addition to the louvered vents and encased headlights do well to add plenty of nostalgic appeal to its curvaceous exterior. Adding on to the vehicle’s charm, outside of its eye-catching aesthetics and raw power is its competitive racing pedigree — having finished in second place at the 1958 Grand Prix of Spa-Francorchamps and fourth at the 12 Hours of Reims in that same year.
RM Sotheby’s predicts that this 1957 Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta could fetch a price just shy of $11 million USD, which if successful, would make it the most expensive car sold at auction this year. To learn more, be sure to visit its auction page.
