Amazing Car for Sale: 1966 Ferrari 330 GTC
Ferrari has numerous models from the mid-20th century that are worth dying for. One of them is the Ferrari 330 series that the automaker produced from 1963 to 1968. First came the 330 America, then the 330 GT 2+2 that replaced it within a year and 50 examples later, and finally came with 330 GTC and 330 GTS models in 1966. The body style of the 330 GTC was designed by Pininfarina and it looked more like its predecessor, the 275 GTB, than the 330 GT 2+2.
This tasteful model is one of the approximately 600 built examples, and it recently arrived at the Bring-a-Trailer auctions. The auction is live for one more week, and at the time of writing this article, it already has a bid of half-a-million dollars.

10 Classic Ferrari Cars That You Probably Forgot About
Ferrari has been building supercars and sports cars for more than 70 years now and, needless to say, many of them are downright legendary. But not every vehicle with a Ferrari badge is iconic. Enzo’s company had its fair share of flops, while some were built in very limited numbers and were simply forgotten over time. Others are nowhere to be found and some simply don’t get the love they deserve. Here’s a a list of 10 classic Ferraris that you probably forgot about
For Once, Ferrari Didn’t Get Its Way, And It’s About Damn time
Ferrari has a horrible reputation for being overprotective of its name and brand image, easily to the point that it comes off as arrogant. Less than a year ago, the company even threatened to sue an Instagram user over posting a picture of his matching shoes on top of his very own Ferrari 812 Superfast – that’s how overly protective the company is. More recently, Ferrari has been in a dispute with Ares Design over the design of the Ferrari 250 GTO, one of the rarest and most sought after Ferraris ever made. Naturally, Ferrari (who probably spends millions each year in legal fees at the very least) did everything it could to protect its trademark, but this time it just didn’t work.
Car for Sale: Ultra-Rare 1995 Ferrari F50 Berlinetta Prototipo
It’s a very rare occasion when something as special as this 1995 Ferrari F50 Berlinetta Prototipo shows up with a for sale sign that’s open to the public. The F50 Berlinetta, in general, is special in its own right as Ferrari produced less than 350 examples over the course of its life, but this is, arguably, the most special of all. Keep reading to find out why.
Buyer of $44 Million Ferrari 250 GTO Goes to Court Over Disputed OG Transmission
One of the most expensive cars ever sold is now at the center of a lawsuit, all because of a missing part. The car in question is a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO, which sold for $44 million in 2017 after British classic car trader Gregor Fisken purchased it from American collector and lawyer Bernard Carl.
A transaction of that amount should’ve made Fisken and Carl friends for life, but the opposite has happened as the two heavyweight collectors are now entangled in a lawsuit involving the 250 GTO’s original five-speed manual transmission, which didn’t come with the car when Fisken purchased it from Carl. It remains unclear if Fisken is owed the original five-speed transmission, but the lawsuit has already been heard by the U.K. High Court. The judge presiding over the lawsuit is reportedly days away from making a verdict.
1962 Ferrari 250 California SWB Spider by Scaglietti
The entire Ferrari 250 line seems to have secured its place in the palace of automotive royalties for generations to come. With unmistakable lines, a variety of powerful but also reliable Colombo V-12s, and limited-run production, almost all of the late-50s to early-60s Ferrari 250 models command astronomical values at auction nowadays.
There are, of course, some stars that shine brighter than others, such as the 250 GTO, the 250 GT SWB, and, lastly, the 250 California SWB Spider built between 1960 and 1962. This is one of those short-wheelbase California Spiders but, despite its originality, it lacks the aura of the ex-Alain Delon ’barn find’ that sold for $18.5 million four years ago.
Besides the fact that Alain Delon once owned and thrashed that particular 250 California SWB Spider, what made it even more desirable were its covered headlights. Amazingly, the more sought after variant is, actually, the one Ferrari made more of: a total of 37,250 California SWB Spiders left the factory with covered headlights and just 19 were optioned without the glass over the twin circular headlamps. Read on to learn more about the strange case of a buyer-induced trend that goes against the otherwise untouchable principle of rarity.
