One of nine 250 GT competition cars built for the 1956 season, fitted with a lightweight Scaglietti body, this is example was sold new to prominent Ferrari privateer Marquis Alfonso de Portago. Although ordered in April of 1956, the car was not ready until the fall of 1956 but in time for the Tour de France. Partnering with Ed Nelson, the Marquis De Portago won the French road race outright, beating Stirling Moss and Olivier Gendebien. It was this victory that earned the long wheelbase 250 GT competition car the nickname 'Tour de France' or 'TdF'.

Alfonso de Portago, would go on to score several more outright and class victories. Among them was in the Coupes USA on April 7, which would be Spanish racers final win as he sadly crashed fatally shortly after in the fateful 1957 Mille Miglia. De Portago's family would retain the Tour de France winning 250 GT well into the 1960s. It was subsequently owned by two noted British collectors, before being acquired by Lorenzo Zambrano in 1992. The very important Ferrari 250 GT Competizione was then sympathetically restored by Bob Smith Coachworks. The car was shown at select events in the following years and cherished by Mr Zambrano until his passing in May of 2014.
