Just when you thought you've seen all the incredible cars that are hitting the auction block next month in Monterey, Gooding & Co. drops a bombshell of three of the most rare and special Ferraris in the world: the 1961 250 GT SWB California Spider, a 1957 410 Superamerica Series II Coupe, and a 1965 500 Superfast.
At the top of the list is the 1961 Ferrari 250 GT SWB California Spider which is estimated to go for a whopping $16-$18,000,000 and at this auction they'll be presenting a 3095 GT chassis that is one of the 37 covered-headlight SWB models.
Next up is a '57 Ferrari 410 Superamerica Series II Coupe, a chassis 0717 SA example once owned by HRH Mohammad Shah Reza Pahlevi of Iran. The car features a red roof and a Grigio Metallizzato exterior and under the hood is a Aurelio Lampredi-derived 4.9-liter V-12. Estimates for this 410 are $5,000,000-$6,000,000.
Last but not least, a 1965 Ferrari 500 Superfast, our favorite of the bunch and wrapped in an immaculate navy blue exterior. Like the previous Ferrari, this model was also under royal ownership originally purchased brand new by Prince Sadruddin Aga Khan. This one is expected to go for $3,000,000-$3,400,000.
