Exquisite Ferrari 250 GT Declared Finest Classic On Earth


After twelve years of caning the competition around racing circuits, the Ferrari retired and went to live in Claus Ahlefeld’s private collection for 32 years. But, in 2000, the Italian rarity was liberated from its museum plinth and treated to an exhaustive restoration. The owners sought to return the 250 GT to its original configuration, painting the vehicle in its factory silver and retrimming the interior in blue leather.

Since then, it has exchanged hands again and was treated to even more restoration work by Bacchelli & Villa. Now a near-perfect example, the Berlinetta Competizione has obtained certification from Ferrari Classiche and won countless awards.

The Ferrari’s owner, Brian Ross, expressed elation over the award. “It is a magnificent recognition of the multiple years spent trying to get my hands on this 250 GT and the hard work that went into the years-long restoration process. All of the other nominees have fantastic vehicles so I am incredibly humbled to be selected by the acclaimed judges for this award. Winning Best of the Best is a true dream.”
