Chassis: 2845GT
Sold new to Count Volpi's Scuderia Serenissima, this SEFAC Hot Rod debuted at the 1961 Tour de France where Maurice Trintignant and Paul Cavrois finished third overall. The following month, chassis 2845GT was entrusted to F1 racers Graham Hill and Joakim Bonnier, who finished 11th in the Paris 1000km at Montlhery. At the start of the 1962 season, it was sold to an Italian gentleman racer and it made several more appearances that year in local events. Following its contemporary career, it passed through several Swiss hands before it ended up in Germany. Two successive owners campaigned the car extensively in historic events from the late 1970s through to the mid 1990s.

At the start of the 21st century, it was acquired by Pink Floyd manager Steve O'Rourke. He continued to campaign the car until his untimely death in 2003. By the mid-2000s, it was entrusted to Ferrari Classiche for a ground-up restoration. They removed the replica body that was fitted at the time and with the help of Carrozzeria Brandoli restored the original panels that fortunately came with the car. After the work was completed, the car was shown at the Ferrari Classiche stand of the 2009 Techno Classica. In 2010, it was sold at Gooding's Pebble Beach auction to an American collector. More recently, it returned to Swiss ownership and was demonstrated at the 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed.
