Was the very first – rare Ferrari to be auctioned

The first ever Ferrari 250 SWB California Spider was shown at the Geneva Motor Show in 1960. The car show is dead, but the car is not.

The Geneva Motor Show no longer exists. But the 250 SWB California Spider, which Ferrari showed off at the 1960 motor show, does.

And now – 64 years after it was first shown to the public – the car appears again. It must find a new owner.

This is what the auction house RM Sotheby's writes in a press release .

The car's current owner, who is one of just 5 people that some have passed between in the course of time, has had the 3-litre V12 for 16 years.

Ferrari has already confirmed that this is the exact car and that it is still running around with its original gearbox, engine and bodywork. Therefore, the car also costs a little.

RM Sotheby's expects the car, to be sold at auction in Monterey, California, to fetch somewhere between 16 and 18 million. So in dollars. If the stocks go high, the owner can collect what corresponds to 123 million Danish kroner.

If California is a little too far away, there is also the possibility of getting hold of an extremely rare car somewhat closer. In Sweden, the rarest Saab to date is also looking for a new owner.

It was planned that the car – a 9-3 cabriolet – should be produced in 365 copies. A car for every day in 2011. The Saab employees just never got that far, because the brand went bankrupt in December of that year. Read more about that car here .
