The vehicle is for track-use only, and the FIA Historic Technical passport allows for racing this exceptional Ferrari. The car has run in several historic races in Europe and the US, including the Monterey Motorsports Reunion, Classic 12 Hours at Sebring, and Classic 24 Hour at Daytona. In the video below, you can see the car in one of the events at Sebring – which it won, with Jim Pace behind the wheel. According to the seller Match84G, former F1 driver Jochen Mass, Arturo Merzario, Mauro Borella, David Hinton, and John Starkey were some of the pilots who raced in this very ’69 365 GTB/4 Ferrari.
On a side note, the car saw a very different race today on a car auctioning website, where it went for sale. On the final morning of the bid, the price was $401,000, set on June 28th. All that changed in just 50 minutes when several interested participants raced to buy this historic beauty (see the photo gallery for some of the bidding’s most exciting moments). You can also have a look at what the auction winner takes home at the BaT gallery.
