1962 Ferrari 250 GTE

Chassis number : 3481GT

Share on:

The 250 GTE was the very first Ferrari offered in a 2+2 configuration. Powered by a 3 liter Colombo V12 engine that produces 240 horsepower, it is often considered among Pininfarinas most beautiful designs. So popular, that total production would be closer to 1,000 units, although this is one of just 54 right hand drive models.

This 250 GTE was originally owned by legendary British actor Peter Sellers. Sellers owned the car while filming the movies 'Dr. Strangelove' and 'The Wrong Arm of the Law', in which the car appeared in a brief cameo appearance with Sellers himself driving.

Originally finished in Chinese White with a black interior, the car was delivered from the Ferrari factory in July of 1962 and driven to the U.K. by Col. Ronnie Hoare of Maranello Concessionaires, personally delivered to Sellers on the set of 'Wrong Arm.'

The current owners' father purchased this car and imported it to the United States in 1973. He would enjoy ownership for just two years, then sold it to Michael Bodine for $4,800. The car was hidden away for over four decades, with Mr. Bodine eventually sending it for restoration, an eight year process. The current owner was reunited with this car for the first time in April, 2017.
