Anatomy of a Car: 1957 Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta ‘Tour de France’

Launch Slideshow

The 1950s were the glory days of GT racing, and no car from that period looms larger than Ferrari’s 250 GT Berlinetta Competizione. The car was so dominant in the Tour de France rally from 1956 to 1959 that today it is known simply by the initials of that event: the TdF. Today collectors prize these cars for their exquisite lightweight coachwork, advanced racing mechanicals and undeniable significance in Ferrari racing history. Ahead, we look at the features that define this Series III Ferrari TdF to be offered at RM Sotheby’s Monaco sale. –Jake Auerbach
