1961 Ferrari 250 GT SWB S/N 2735

Chassis no. 2735 was the Ferrari most raced by Moss (five races out of his twelve Ferrari drives), the Ferrari he described as the “Best GT car in the world” and was restored by Bacchelli & Villa in 2007.

Throughout 1961 this 250 GT SWB was raced by Stirling Moss and Graham Hill: it was a season for the books with five victories, over the six total entries. In the only race they did not finish, the car marked the GT Lap Record at Le Mans.

In the second half of the 1962 season, now in the hands of Chris Kerrison, the SWB was hit by the Ferrari 250 GTO of John Surtees and Jim Clark’s Aston Martin DB4 at the Goodwood Tourist Trophy. It needed an engine rebuild, which was completed at the factory.

The car was raced at Spa, the Nurburgring, the Tour de France and many British circuits.
