RM Sotheby’s adds three multi-million dollar Ferraris to Monterey sale
Two rare classic Ferraris plus a 2014 LaFerrari have joined RM Sotheby’s most historic ever Monterey line-up, taking place on August 24-25
RM Sotheby’s has announced three extra multi-million dollar Ferraris are to be offered in the auction house’s flagship Monterey sale, adding to its most historic ever lineup.
Its latest additions, joining the 1962 250 GTO, mean its Monterey selection next month will include 29 Ferraris in total.
- Three multi-million dollar Ferraris set for Pebble Beach sale
- Aston Martin’s ‘pinnacle achievement’ DP215 up for auction
- Ferrari 246 GT Dino 1973 for sale on AutoClassics
The extra cars are led by one of only 31 1953 Ferrari 250 MM Berlinettas made. The Colombo V-12-equipped 250 MM was built to commemorate Giovanni Bracco and Alfonso Rolfo’s famous win at the 1952 Mille Miglia in the marque’s 250 Sport model.
It has extensive period racing history and has been owned by some of the most renowned collectors. It also is one of just 18 of these cars wearing influential new fastback coachwork by Pinin Farina. It is estimated to bring in between $7.5m and $9m.
Also joining the lineup is a rare, beautifully restored and Classiche-certified 1960 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Alloy Berlinetta Competizione, an early example of the first major change to the 250 GT model following the Tour de France. One of just 46 alloy-bodied competition SWB examples completed in 1960, it is notable for its high state of chassis and body originality, having experienced no racing damage throughout its life.
It also benefits from recent cosmetic measures and wears its original color combination of Rosso Chiaro over Nero leather. It is estimated to be bought for between $9.5m and $13m. Both cars are ideal for period racing, for display or for a collector.
RM Sotheby’s will also offer for auction at Monterey a 2014 LaFerrari, a virtually as-new example of Ferrari’s 21st-century hybrid hypercar. It’s offered from a prominent private collection and shows less than 150 miles driven since delivery.
It is reckoned that it will fetch between $3m and $4m, and proceeds from the sale will benefit the College for Creative Studies in Detroit, Michigan, one of America’s premier arts education institutions; many of whose graduates find careers in the automotive industry.
The auction is set to take place on August 24-25 at the newly reopened Monterey Conference Centre in California. The sale will be held during the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance motoring week.
