Through Maranello Concessionaires, this 'SEFAC Hot Rod' was delivered new to noted British privateer Rob Walker. He fielded the car for Stirling Moss and Graham Hill at Le Mans but a water leak ended their charge early. Back in England, it was raced with great success by Moss, who won the British Empire Trophy and Tourist Trophy at Goodwood outright. The car was then shipped to the Bahamas where Moss won the GT race and the Tourist Trophy race outright as well. It was then briefly raced by Innes Ireland for the UDT Laystall team. In April of 1962, it was acquired by Christopher Kerrison. He raced the car until it was involved in a heavy accident at Goodwood in August of 1962. Back in Italy, the 2735GT was repaired by Piero Drogo and fitted with a brand new body. In this configuration, Kerrison continued to campaign the car through to the end of 1964. The subsequent owner replaced the engine with one from a 250 GTE. During the 1970s, it was acquired by Ronald Stern, who had a new 250 GT SWB body made. The restoration was finally completed in the mid-1980s by DK Engineering, when the car was owned by Hugh Edgley. Once rebuilt, the Goodwood TT winning machine was acquired by its long term custodian in 1984. During the late 2000s, it was comprehensively restored and fully certified by Ferrari Classiche. It has since been demonstrated by the owner at select events.
