Ferrari Classiche is proving the newest Ferrari's aren't always the best by showing a beautifully restored 250 GT SWB Berlinetta Competizione.

The restoration process began in March 2014 and was rather extensive as the company meticulously restored the engine, body, suspension, and running gear.  The interior was also rejuvenated to like-new condition. 

The entire restoration process took 14 months to complete but the end result is pretty remarkable especially as it is painted in flawless Pininfarina grey paint.

Interestingly, this particular car has a bit of a pedigree as it was originally bought by Formula 1 driver Dorino Serafini who secured a podium position for Ferrari at the 1950 Italian Grand Prix.  Serafini rarely used the car and in 1964 he sold it to René Richard.

Richard eventually crashed the model and sold it to Belgian racer Lucien Bianchi who repaired the car and gave it a dark blue exterior and a black interior.  Shortly after being repaired, it was sold to yet another racing driver, Jacques Pollet, who had the car painted gray.  The car was later sold at auction where it was bought by a Belgian collector who had it painted yellow.
