A collection of 13 Ferrari road cars from a single collector has joined the line-up of cars at RM Sotheby’s 2017 Monterey auction
As we close in on the automotive frenzy that is the Monterey Car Week, RM Sotheby’s has confirmed the consignment of a 13-strong collection of Ferrari road cars.
Named the Ferrari
Performance Collection, this selection of Maranello’s finest comes from a single collector, and ranges from an award-winning 1961 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta right through to a 2011 Ferrari 599 GTO. Many of the cars are offered at no reserve, and a number come with less than 1000 miles on the clock.
With an estimate of $8.5m–$10m, the 1961 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta is by far the most valuable car offered in from the collection. Chassis 2985 is the 110th of 165 built, and comes complete with Ferrari Classiche certification. The steel-bodied example won a Platinum award at Cavallino in 2016.
Next up is the 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 Berlinetta by Scaglietti, estimated at $2.75m-$3.25m. Chassis 10147 was Imported to the USA in 1967, and it is still presented in factory-correct Rosso over Pelle Nera. With matching-numbers, original tool roll and handbook, it is also offered with Ferrari Classiche certification.
There is also an example of the incredibly rare Dino 206 GT, which is one of just 152 alloy-bodied early cars built. Chassis 00362 was imported to the USA in 2014, and it still wears its UK number plates in the photos. It’s estimated at $650,000–$750,000.
An early fibreglass ‘Vetroresina’ 308 GTB is the only 1970s entrant at $175,000–$225,000, while a 1989 328 GTS is the cheapest car in the collection with an estimate of $90,000–$120,000. A pair of 512 BBis of similar age vary considerably in estimate ($275,000–$325,000 vs $375,000–$450,000), thanks to the latter example having covered fewer than 600 miles since it was sold new in the USA.
More modern machinery includes a 430 Scuderia, 16M Scuderia Spider, 360 Challenge Stradale and 599 GTO.
Of course, no Ferrari collection would be complete without an F40. The example here is one of the 213 examples originally homologated for use in the USA. Complete with luggage, tools, books and original invoice, it’s estimated at $1.3m-$1.5m.
