€10 Million 1960 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Reviewed

Reviewing a 1960 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta Competizione can be incredibly difficult to accomplish, since we’re talking about a very rare car that is worth around €10 million ($11.3 million).

EVO’s Jethro Bovingdon is one of the few motoring journalists who can add driving a 250 GT SWB to his resume, thanks to RM Sotheby’s, which wanted to promote is forthcoming classic car auction on May 23 at Villa Erba in Italy.

One of only 45 aluminum-bodied 250 GT competition versions built, the stunning yellow Ferrari is powered by a 3.0-liter V12 engine which produces around 280hp. As you can imagine, driving a 1960 Ferrari built for racing takes some effort from the person behind the wheel since nothing is assisted. The steering, brakes, everything is mechanical.

Bovingdon found out the V12 engine needs to be revved seriously to deliver, but who would be bothered by that when the sound of the twelve cylinders is so sweet?
