1957 Ferrari 250 GT LWB Berlinetta
Broad Arrow Auctions will be holding its first-ever event August 18, 2022, during Monterey Car Week at the Monterey Jet Center. Broad Arrow is wasting no time setting expectations — out of 80 highly-regarded classic and modern sports cars, the crown jewel of the show will be this 1957 Ferrari 250 GT LWB Berlinetta. The 250 GT was so successful at the Tour de France during the mid and late '50s that the car was nicknamed for the race. This 250 GT, number 0619 GT, was raced in-period by its first owner and racked up podium finishes at tracks like Spa, Reims, and Monza. The car was sold on before being rescued by Wayne Sparling, chief mechanic for Ferrari importer Luigi Chinetti's North America Racing Team. Sparling embarked on a restoration that was completed in the early 2000s, and then showed and raced the car at multiple events through 2018. The current owner refreshed the car and fitted its original factory alloy body, earning it the coveted Ferrari Classiche certification. One of the most desired cars in the world, a seven-figure price is expected.
