Capitalizing on Ferrari’s 70th Anniversary, RM Sotheby’s held a 38-car all-Ferrari sale over the weekend that totalled €63,068,110 ($76,312,413) with all but three lots finding buyers.
Highlights of the sale included a rare “barn find,” a car once owned by Keith Richards and a recent production supercar:
- 2017 LaFerrari Aperta that made €8,300,000. According to Sotheby’s, the sale “was free of all commission; a world record for a 21st century automobile, all of which will generously be donated to Save the Children for an international program focusing on education.”
- 1959 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spider by Scaglietti, chassis no. 1503 GT. had only one owner for the last two decades. The car was rarely shown and made €7,855,000.
- 1969 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona Berlinetta Alloy, was offered in complete ‘barn-find’ condition, having been discovered in Japan after being hidden for almost 40 years. With documented history,, the bidding reached €1,807,000, becoming the most valuable Daytona coupe ever sold at public auction.
- 1983 Ferrari 400i, offered directly from the collection of Keith Richards, had attracted huge pre-sale attention. The Rolling Stones legend had owned the car from new and it is preserved in exceptional, original condition with only 3,267 km on the clock. This desirable five-speed manual example made an outstanding €345,000; a world-record for the model.
