The 1956 250 GT Berlinetta – Be Quick And Bring Your Wallet

If you are extremely quick (and somewhat wealthy) you may be in luck. Up for auction tomorrow will be a very special and exceptionally beautiful car, the 1956 250 GT Berlinetta with coachwork by Carrozzeria Boano. This exceptional automobile with matching chassis and engine (0543GT) was born on 16th July 1956, and is the 56th car of this series to be built. No doubt, not all are in this condition.

Note: is not affiliated with Ferrari SPA.

The car spent the first 5 decades in the US before being sold to a Belgian collector in August 2010 for $440,000 where it still resides. The price tomorrow is expected to be significantly more though, as the reserve is now set at $1.1m, although $1.4m is more than possible.

If you are interested, the car will be sold at the Quail Lodge Bonhams Auction on Friday 18th August 2017. We will report back with the sale price.

If you just happen to find yourself as the proud new owner please let us know! We would love to know your story, as well as your impressions and thoughts.

A phone call to his dad the following day soon put an end to that! His therapist suggested that to overcome the addiction a healthy dose of Ferrari Blogging and Spotting will help, and with that was born!
