Ferrari 250 Le Mans up for auction

Get ready for the ultimate Ferrari auction spectacle as the iconic Ferrari 250 Le Mans, dubbed by many as the greatest Ferrari ever, goes under the hammer at Monterey Car Week in mid-August. This exceptional race car is the 22nd of just 32 ever produced, making it incredibly rare and highly sought after.

The fully restored beauty, complying with original Ferrari Classiche specifications, boasts an illustrious racing history, having participated in the prestigious 1966 24 Hours of Daytona and the 1968 24 Hours of Le Mans. Although it didn’t take part in the 1965 Le Mans, its sibling, chassis No. 5893, did and triumphantly secured Ferrari’s sixth consecutive victory at the event, further adding to the 250 LM’s legend.

The car’s reputation was cemented during the 1966 24 Hours of Daytona when it was piloted by Innes Ireland, Mike Hailwood, and George Drummond as No. 24. While gearbox failure forced it to retire prematurely, it embarked on a series of successful races over the next two years, including a noteworthy appearance at the Austrian Grand Prix with Michael Parkes behind the wheel.

As bidders eagerly await the auction, this exceptional Ferrari 250 Le Mans is sure to captivate the hearts of car enthusiasts and aficionados, vying to make history once again as it changes hands in this highly anticipated event.
