Reincarnated Ferrari 250 GT SWB can be yours for £1.35M
Back in the distant 1950s, Ferrari produced 250 road-legal examples of its 250 GT, causing the model to become iconic and sell for crazy seven-digit euro amounts nowadays. Here is an interesting alternative from RML, which breaks your bank rather gently compared to the original.
The SWB replica shares the platform with the original 250 GT, but has stylistic and technical distinctions from it. The headlights have built-in image projectors, the vintage-themed wheels are much wider than anything period-correct, and the side mirrors and exhaust finishers are chrome-coated. The whole body wears a special shade of blue applied on top of as many as three different primers.
RML claims that ninety-nine percent of the bodywork follows original parts with a 2.5mm (0.1”) tolerance. The same cannot be said about the engine, which is a modern 5.5-liter V12 tuned to 479 PS (472 hp / 352 kW) and 568 Nm (419 lb-ft). A six-speed manual transmission sends the torque to the wheels through a limited-slip differential.
A total of 30 such replicas will be made priced from £1.35 million before any options and taxes. The delivery time is estimated at six months.
