Vehicle Description

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION at RM Sothebys' Paris event, 5 February 2020.
Estimate:
€390,000 - €500,000

  • The seventh Series II 250 GT Pinin Farina coup� built
  • Beautifully restored in Blue Notte over tan leather
  • Class winner at the Warren Concours d'Elegance
  • Ferrari Classiche Certified


This 250 GT coup� was the seventh second-series example produced and delivered new to Giacomo Cuoghi, who resided in Modena, not far from Ferrari's own facilities. In February 1967 ownership passed to Andreoli Vittoria, who then sold 1533 GT to Tom Meade a little over two years later. Meade quickly sold it on to Rip Martin of Los Angeles on 2 July 1969, noting that it was now fitted with a different but correct-type engine (which the car retains today), and it was promptly exported. By 2006 it was with William Senyak as a restoration project. It was imported to England via Tom Shaughnessy in 2012. Soon after arriving in England, a comprehensive restoration was performed by GTB Restorations.

Finished elegantly in Blue Notte (Dark Blue) with the interior trimmed in supple Connolly hides of tan leather, this fastidiously restored 250 GT is stunning in every detail. Along with the cosmetic restoration, all the mechanicals were fully rebuilt. The superb quality of this classic Ferrari has been rewarded with invitations to several classic car shows, including the 2017 Warren Concours d'Elegance in England, where it garnered a class win. In addition, the restoration was featured in the February 2018 issue of Classic Cars magazine. Recent expenditure with Joe Macari Performance Cars, an official Ferrari service centre in London, to achieve Classiche certification includes fitment of the correct-type Borrani wheels and further detail work.

The PF coup� is a grand touring machine in the greatest Italian tradition. More at home cruising the coastline of the South of France than rocketing down the Mulsanne Straight, these cars were built for the individual that respected Ferrari's racing pedigree yet wanted something more civilized and comfortable than its racing counterparts. Chassis 1533 GT fits this description perfectly.



  • Septi�me exemplaire du coup� 250 GT S�rie II Pinin Farina

  • Magnifiquement restaur� en bleu nuit Blue Notte et cuir brun

  • Victorieux dans sa cat�gorie au Concours d'�l�gance Warren

  • Certifi� par Ferrari Classiche


Ce coup� 250 GT est le septi�me produit dans la S�rie II ; il fut livr� � Giacomo Cuoghi, de Mod�ne, non loin des usines Ferrari. Il fut revendu en f�vrier 1967 � Andreoli Vittoria, qui c�da un peu plus de deux ans plus tard ce ch�ssis 1533 GT � Tom Meade. Celui-ci se d�p�cha de le revendre le 2 juillet 1969 � Rip Martin, de Los Angeles, en lui indiquant que la voiture �tait d�sormais �quip�e d'un moteur conforme mais diff�rent (toujours pr�sent) ; elle fut promptement export�e. Elle se retrouva en 2006 chez William Senyak, qui projetait de la restaurer. En 2012, elle fut export�e en Angleterre par les soins de Tom Shaughnessy et peu apr�s son arriv�e sur place, GTB Restorations en effectua une restauration compl�te.

D'un �l�gant bleu nuit Blue Notte avec int�rieur garni de cuir Connolly brun d'une belle souplesse, cette 250 GT minutieusement restaur�e est �blouissante jusque dans ses moindres d�tails. En parall�le de la restauration d'aspect, toute la m�canique a �t� enti�rement refaite. Le magnifique �tat de cette Ferrari de collection lui a valu d'�tre invit�e � de nombreuses manifestations consacr�es � des voitures de collection, dont en Angleterre le Concours d'�l�gance Warren de 2017, o� elle a remport� une victoire dans sa cat�gorie. Sa restauration a par ailleurs fait l'objet d'une mention dans le num�ro de f�vrier 2018 du magazine Classic Cars. Parmi les r�cents travaux effectu�s par Joe Macari Performance Cars, un centre Ferrari officiel de Londres, dans le but d'obtenir la certification Classiche, figure entre autres le montage des roues Borrani de la bonne d�finition.

Ce coup� PF est une GT dans la plus grande tradition italienne. Ces voitures, davantage faites pour circuler le long des c�tes du Midi de la France que pour foncer dans la ligne droite de Mulsanne, �taient destin�es � ceux qui respectaient le pedigree sportif de Ferrari tout en d�sirant quelque chose de plus civilis� et de plus confortable que ses bolides de course. Le ch�ssis 1533 GT r�pond parfaitement � cette attente.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/pa20.
