Ferrari 250 GT SWB (1959-1962) specifications

One of the most iconic and respected early Ferraris is also one of the rarest and most expensive


Seriously collectable Ferraris, not least due to the fact that only just over 150 were built and almost half were competition cars. The racers reigned supreme in the GT classes and one was driven in period by Stirling Moss; such exploits rub off on the desirability and value of road cars. History and provenance can have just as much effect on an individual SWB’s value as condition, say specialists like DK Engineering. All came with 3.0-litre V12s and power can range from 220/240bhp in road cars to 280bhp from competition-spec engines.
