This LWB Competition TdF is the fourth of only 36 single-louvre, covered-headlight Tour de France Ferrari's created. The car was fitted with a 508C chassis and Tipo 128C engine and was delivered new on April 21st of 1958, through Tore Bjurstrom, the official Swedish Ferrari imported. The car was originally finished in red with a dark blue noseband leading that went back into a center stripe over a red interior with black piping. The car was featured in the Swedish press and was sold to Sture Nottrop. A short time after taking delivery, Nottrop drove the car in the 12 Hours of Rheims that took place on July 6th of 1958. The race, which included no fewer than ten TdFs, Nottrop and Ivar Andersson piloted 0903GT wearing race number 70. The TdF failed to finish in its competition debut, most likely due to mechanical troubles. This would be its only competitive outing. The car remained with Nottrop for two years. In 1960, it was sold to Kjell Lundberg who soon sold it to Sven Andersson. Mr. Anderson had an accident with the car, sliding off a winter road and turning the Berlinetta over. The bodywork was repaired in Sweden and was subsequently re-finished in red.

The car was sold to P.G. Fagerberg of Hjo before it was re-purchased by Mr. Anderson and re-sold to Robert Bostrom. On June 28th of 1972, the car was sold to Lars Saaf, a Saab-Scania engineer. Mr. Saaf began a complete restoration. The project was put on the back burner and the TdF would lay dormant in the garage under his house. It would disappear for three decades.

The current owner heard about the car and contacted Mr. Saaf with the intent of purchasing it and completing the restoration work. Between 2006 and December 2007, the TdF was completely restored by an in-house team of Ferrari specialists. Currently, the odometer displays less than 54,000 kilometers.

In 2010, the car was offered for sale at the Gooding & Company auction held in Pebble Beach, CA. It had an estimated value of $2,600,000 - $3,200,000. It would leave the auction unsold.

Ferrari's 250 GT Competizione was better known as the Tour de France, or TDF, after the coupe's brilliant victories in the rally-race around France that Ferrari won from 1956 through 1964. With the single-cam, three-liter Ferrari V-12 delivering 260 hp the 'TDF' was as close to a perfect 'gentleman's racer' as possible. In the hands of a pro it was an even more formidable competitor. Olivier Gendebien's third place overall finish in the 1957 Mille Miglia with an earlier 'TDF' is the highpoint of the Scaglietti-bodied long wheelbase coupe's lustrous competition career. This car also took part in the midnight-to-noon 12 Hours of Reims on the famous high-speed 5.187 mile grand prix circuit in France's Champagne country. It was the only 250GT TDF imported into Sweden and has been verified by Ferrari Classiche as retaining its original chassis, drivetrain and coachwork.
