This perfectly preserved 1957 Ferrari 250 Berlinetta Long Wheelbase TDF (Tour de France), chassis number 0677, received the ‘Best of Show’ award for ‘Ferrari Classiche Certified’ prize last year at the Cavallino Classic in Modena.

Judging, conducted by world-renowned experts, is extremely rigorous. A Ferrari must score a perfect 100/100 to be considered for Best of Show and must also outperform 140 other outstanding Ferraris on that day.

Furthermore, the Cavallino Classic Concorso d’Eleganza is one of only seven premier shows worldwide that participate in the Peninsula Classics Best of the Best Award. Consequently, the Cavallino Classic Best of Show winner is automatically entered into this prestigious competition.

The online roll of honor is dedicated to the Cavallino Classic in Palm Beach. The following cars were the 2023 Best of Show winners at Cavallino Modena:

  • BEST OF SHOW GRAN TURISMO went to a vintage “1959 Ferrari 410 Superamerica” (chassis 1305)
  • BEST OF SHOW COMPETITIONS was awarded to a classic “1952 Ferrari 212 Export (chassis 0080)
  • BEST OF SHOW FOR THE FERRARI CLASSICHE CERTIFIED CARS was awarded to a pristine “1957 Ferrari 250 Berlinetta Long Wheelbase TDF (Tour de France)” (chassis 0677)

FYI: what is Ferrari Classiche Certification?

The Ferrari Classiche Certification is designed to ensure that a Ferrari vehicle is maintained or restored to the exact standards and specifications as when it originally left the factory. This process includes a rigorous technical inspection and verification against Ferrari’s historical archives, which meticulously record details of every car produced since 1947. The benefits of obtaining this certification are significant. It not only helps preserve the historical integrity of the Ferrari but also potentially increases its market value, particularly among collectors. Additionally, certified vehicles are eligible to participate in official Ferrari events, enhancing their prestige and provenance. Since its inception in 2026, the Ferrari Classiche Department has certified over 5,000 vehicles since its inception.
