An all-original Ferrari Daytona, left parked under a cover for over 25 years, will be sold by RM Auctions next year
RM Auctions will offer a completely original Ferrari 365/4 Daytona at its Amelia Island Auction, hosted by the Ritz-Carlton, on 14 March 2015. Having been parked up in a Toronto car park by its first owner more than 25 years ago, the Daytona has remained untouched – until now.
Bought new from the factory by Toronto-based businessman Patrick Sinn in 1971, he enjoyed the Ferrari for 18 years and 90,000 kilometers. After Sinn was called away to a family emergency in 1989, the car was laid up and hasn’t been driven since. Inside the period K-Tec player is an eight-track tape titled ‘Disco Rock’, which has remained there since 1989.
For the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of buying a completely original car from its one and only owner, RM is expecting this Daytona to sell for more than $600,000.
This timewarp Daytona will be offered by RM Auctions along side a previous ‘Best of Show’ 1938 Bugatti Type 57C Aravis Cabriolet by Gangloff ($2,500,000 - $3,250,000), a matching-numbers 1970 Maserati Ghibli Spyder ($700,000 - $900,000) as well as a 1967 Ferrari 330 GTC ($650,000 - $750,000), which is offered without reserve.
