1961 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta

Sold new in Italy to A. Demetrialdi in May 1961, this 250 GT SWB “Lusso” was imported into Switzerland in April 1963 and entered for its first race by its new owner, Daniel Siebenmann of Switzerland, at the “Auvergne 3 hours” in France, where it finished 23rd (pictured in Jess Pourret’s “Ferrari 250 GT Competition,” page 132). In 1963 and 1964, Siebenmann raced the car at several hillclimbs in Switzerland.
