The Pininfarina-styled, Scaglietti-sculpted Ferrari 250 GT, chassis number 3119 GT, is one of only 37 covered-headlight short-wheelbase examples ever made.

Sporting an iconic Ferrari 3.0-litre Colombo V12 powerplant, the Ferrari-certified matching-numbers Rosso Corsa 250 GT also features a classic tan leather interior.

The Ferrari’s asking price might initially seem expensive, however, when compared with the 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO racecar built for Sir Stirling Moss that sold in June for US$35 million ($36.3 million) to become the world’s most expensive car, it’s somewhat of a deal.

Over 100 other vehicles will join alongside the Italian classic including a 1905 Rapid Nine-Passenger Omnibus, a 1956 Ferrari 250 GT LWB Berlinetta ‘Tour de France’, a 1956 Mercedes-Benz 300SL “Gullwing” Coupe and a super-rare 1998 Porsche 911 GT1 ‘Strassenversion’ - Street Version - (pictured below).
