1973 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Comp Scaglietti Belinetta
The Ferrari 2365 GTB/4 Competition Belinetta built by Scaglietti is based upon the road-going Ferrari Daytona that became the fastest production car in the world when it was launched in 1968. These competition cars competed successfully in endurance races like Le Mans, Daytona and the Tour de France throughout the 1970s. This car (chassis 16343) is the 11th of the 15 competition 365 GTB/4s built. Three series of five cars were produced in total. The first series cars were built in alloy. This third series car was built in steel and has the 450 bhp, 4.4 litre V12 engine. It was first delivered to the North American Racing Team of Luigi Chinetti and ran in the 1973 24 Hours of Daytona and the 1974 24 Hours of Le Mans before being sold into private hands. It finished first in class at the 1975 24 Hours of Daytona. After several more races and owners this car was restored to its original specification in 2003.

1957 Ferrari 250 GT LWB Scaglietti Berlinetta

1957 Ferrari 250 GT LWB Scaglietti Berlinetta
The design of the Ferrari 250 GT LWB Berlinetta was first shown at the 1955 Paris Salon. The first few production cars were built by Pinin Farina and later by Scaglietti. Five examples were built by Zagato. They all had the 3-liter, V12 engine. This car (chassis 0703GT) has the rare 14 louver specification that appeared on the first series cars. Only nine cars had this feature. These were subsequently replaced by three and then single louver on the last series. It was entered in the Mille Miglia in 1957 when it came ninth overall. A similar 250 GT LWB came in third. Ferrari 150 GT LWBs Berlinettas are known as TdF or Tour de France cars in commemoration of their outstanding victories in that race from 1956 to 1959. The 250 GT LWB Berlinetta won more races than either of its legendary successors, the 250 GT SWB Berlinetta and the 250 GTO.

1964 Ferrari 250 LM Scaglietti Berlinetta

1964 Ferrari 250 LM Scaglietti Berlinetta
The first rear-engined V12 Ferrari with the 3 liter 250 GT engine was the 250P "Prototipo" that won at Le Mans in 1963. Enzo Ferrari wanted to have a rear-engined car for both road and race, and he revealed the 3.3 liter 250 LM at the 1963 Paris Auto Show. It was very much like the Le Mans winning car but with a roof! Due to the FIA rules about homologation at the time, all the 250LMs built before 1966 were raced as prototypes. All but one of the 32 cars built were raced at some point and all but three of these were right-hand drive as was normal for Ferrari race cars at the time. This example (5843GT), the third 250 LM built, was delivered to Ecurie Francorchamps in May 1964 for the 1,000-kilometer race at the Nurburgring. In June it ran at Le Mans where it came in 16th overall. In July it won at the Zolder Grand Prix driven by Lucien Bianchi. It came to the United States in 1966 and has since been raced in many Ferrari Club events.
