Continuing our coverage of RM Auctions‘ Battersea Evolution sale in London on October 26, we invite you to feast your eyes on the 1958 Ferrari 250 GT LWB ‘Tour de France’ Berlinetta.
One of the most desirable competition-bred Ferraris in existence, it’s one of just 36 competition 250 GT LWB Berlinettas originally produced by Ferrari with the single vent and desirable covered headlamp configuration, designed to compete in the Tour de France.
Expected to fetch up to $3.7 million at RM Auctions Battersea Evolution sale in London
Starting in Nice and ending five days and 3345 miles (5383 km) later in Paris, the Tour de France was one of the most prestigious events of its day, testing both durability and versatility through several road rally, circuit and hill climb stages.
The 250 TdF went on to class victories at the Mille Migla and many other Italian events.
Hardly surprising then that it’s expected to fetch up to $3.7 million in London, give or take a few pence….
