1956 Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta “TdF”

This Ferrari is one of the diminishing number of highly original, and in many respects “unspoiled” historic cars. As such cars become increasingly rare, that very fact can surely only enhance their value. 0507, still with its original engine, and having been the last thirty-two years in a Dutch museum, is one of the most attractive 250 GT “Tour de France” Ferraris to appear on the auction arena.
