The first owner is recorded as Luigi Piotti of Milano, believed to have been the racing driver who participated in eight Formula 1 World Championship Grand Prix during this era, driving for the Maserati and OSCA Works teams, amongst others. It fits nicely into the impressive lineage of cars he had owned over the years, which previously included purchases new of both a Ferrari 250 Monza and 250 MM!
More recently, the car underwent a complete professional restoration, with the body removed from the frame, and fully addressed and restored. An all-new interior was fitted, and the body, having been stripped to bare metal, was refinished in the original colour, nicely set off by restored Borrani chrome wire wheels shod in blackwall tyres. The odometer records 69,576 kilometres at the time of cataloguing. This 350 GT is expected to fetch between £550,000 to £632,000.
