Originally conceived as a 250 P in 1963, this was long believed to have not been raced until 1964 by which time it was updated to 275 P specifications. Crucially, it was driven to the outright victory at Le Mans by Jean Guichet and Nino Vaccarella. It was then sold to Luigi Chinetti, who continued to campaign the car at select events in North America. Shortly after its contemporary racing career, it was acquired by the late Pierre Bardinon for his formidable Mas du Clos collection. In 2017, it was announced that his estate had consigned the car to Artcurial for the 2018 Retromobile auction. However, it was withdrawn due to a dispute between Bardinon's heirs. During 2018, the car's history was researched further by Ferrari Classiche on behalf of RM Sotheby's who had now been tasked to sell the car through their private treaty department.

What Ferrari Classiche discovered was quite startling as not only did this car win Le Mans in 1964, it also turned out to have been used for the victorious runs at Le Mans in 1963 and again at Sebring in 1964. The mix up of identities was caused by Ferrari's intended entry for the 1963 Le Mans sustaining damage at the Nürburgring and with too little time left to repair they dispatched this car instead but using the 0814 number of the car that had originally been entered. This makes 0816 the only Ferrari to have won Le Mans on two occasions, and one of just a handful of back-to-back winners of the great race. In August of 2018 it was entrusted to RM Sotheby's to find a new owner for an undisclosed but undoubtedly staggering amount.
