This weekend, Gooding & Co. will stage the second London Auction. Headlining the 40 lots is this fascinating Ferrari 250 GT SWB Competizione. Although tagged with number 2021GT, it was discovered during a recent restoration that the car had actually started life as 1931GT. Originally raced at Le Mans by the North American Racing Team, it was returned to the factory where was it was re-tagged to replace a damaged SWB, chassis 2021GT. As 2021GT, it was in French hands until 1983. Since then, it has had just two owners and is now resplendent in its 1960 Le Mans colours.
Equally fascinating is this barn-find Porsche 550 RS Spyder. Originally delivered to Switzerland, it has a documented racing history from 1956 through to the summer of 1958. It was subsequently modified to resemble a later RS60 and was also fitted with a larger, more powerful engine from an RS61. Not seen in public since 1989, chassis 550-0079 was stored in the consignor's barn for over 30 years.
Another Porsche consigned is this 911 Carrera RSR 2.8, which was used to win the 1973 European GT Championship for Kremer Racing. Following a spell in the hands of the president of the French Porsche club, it also comes from a longterm single ownership. In the same hands since 1997, 911 360 0885 comes complete with an extensive spares package.
