With its 260-hp 3.0L V12, this late '50s Ferrari 250 GT has had quite the racing history, having muscled its way through TdF, Spa, Reims, Monza, and Montlhéry. Quite impressively the car has been in the hands of Ferrari enthusiast Wayne Sparling for a little over 40 years. 

The historic 250 GT "Tour de France" will be going under the hammer at Amelia Island this March boasting an original numbers matching engine and finished a full restoration in the 2000s with a body wrapped in the original Grigio paint. It even includes copies of the car's factory build sheets, genuine spare tire andwheel, and a complete factory tool roll.
