Special one-of-a-kind auction at Ferrari in Maranello

Special one-of-a-kind auction at Ferrari in Maranello

To commemorate Ferrari’s 70th anniversary, RM Sotheby’s and Ferrari join hands in a one of a kind sale in Maranello. On auction will be around twenty Ferrari’s, the oldest dating back to 1950 and the youngest is a 2012 car. All in all the cars give an overview of the rich and varied 70-year history of the Ferrari-marque.

 

It’s not the first time that RM Sotheby’s and Ferrari organise auctions together, in 2007 and 2009 there were similar auctions under name ‘Leggenda e Passione’. That same title is being used this year for the auction in Maranello at 9 September 2017. RM’s has a long experience with Ferrari’s. Next week in Monterey they will auction a collection of 13 of them. In the past, it was this auction house that achieved incredible auction results with all sorts of Ferrari’s, like the ex-Works, ex-Juan Manuel Fangio 1956 Ferrari 290 MM that was sold for USD 28,050,000 at RM’s 2015 New York sale.

 

On 9 September the auction in Maranello will bring together an exclusive selection of sports, GT and racing Ferraris. RM promises us even some of the most valuable and sought-after examples on the planet. Of course, all cars on this auction will carry certification from Ferrari Classiche department.
One of the highlights of the event will be a genuine, numbers-matching 1959 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spider by Scaglietti, chassis no. 1503 GT. The car has been for almost twenty years in single ownership and has seldom been shown. It is estimated at EUR 7.5 to 9.5 million.

Another highlight is a 1985 Ferrari 288 GTO, with chassis no. 57709. This car is considered one of the finest and best-preserved examples in existence. It is the 255th of just 272 ever built and is virtually as-new throughout. The current owner bought the car in 1993 and since then it has been stored ever since. The car was discovered earlier this year and has been carefully reconditioned. With just 729 km on the odometer, the car is practically brand new. The estimate for this 288 GTO is EUR 3.25 to 4.0.

 

RM Sotheby’s has divided the cars in three eras. The list consists of:
