The infamous 1962 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Breadvan.
A light-heart tribute to the car that has a history like no other Ferrari:
> Started out life in 1961 as a 250GT SWB, dubbed the ‘SEFAC Hot Rod’ due to it being the ultimate SWB spec at the time.
> Competed strongly at the Tour de France & Daytona.
> Converted to the unique Kamm tail body (designed by Bizzarrini) in 1962 by wealthy Italian; Count Volpi, using a team of engineers who had walked out of Ferrari. The Breadvan was developed against the wishes of Enzo Ferrari
> Labelled the Breadvan by the British press and ‘la Camionette’ (little truck) by the French. Disparaging terms at the time, now used more affectionately
> The vehicle competed in the ‘62 Le Mans, and was leading all the other Factory 250GTOs before a broken propshaft forced retirement
> Painted black as a joke by Gianni Agnelli as it reminded him of a hearse.
> Involved in a police chase on the French Riviera, driven by playboy Gunter Sachs (later husband of Bridget Bardot). Car then impounded for a period of time.
> Front end destroyed in ‘76 at Brands Hatch
> Restored and raced regularly, now owned by Martin Halusa.
