This famous Ferrari 250 GT was produced in June 1961 and was raced to victory by Stirling Moss in the Goodwood Tourist Trophy in August 1961. The 250 GT short wheel base cars, of which this is one, secured race wins for the Prancing Horse around the globe and took the 1961 Constructors’ Trophy in the GT class.
Between 1960 and 1961, the 250 GT SWB was Ferrari’s racing weapon of choice. It was consistently victorious, including success at the Tour de France and the 24 Heures Du Mans. *This particular example is one of only three right-hand drive short wheel base cars and arguably the most famous of all due to its deep blue Rob Walker racing colours and the number 7, denoting its Goodwood TT win in the hands of Moss. Moss described the nimble Ferrari as “the best GT car in the world”. It was also raced in period by Graham Hill and Innes Ireland.
