RM Williams sold $53m in vintage cars, 16 for more than $1m, last weekend topped by this Ferrari Superamerica 400 that made $7.6m as the star of the Andrews Collection:
Most Superamericas were long wheelbase, which are better suited to the wider roads of the US. This car was rare and among the most expensive cars of its day, so what better way to preserve it than to go racing. Instead of hitting a historic track with a few other gentlemen at a Ferrari Challenge, the owner decided to push every inch of this car to its limit at the Bonneville Salt Flats.
Any car raced on the salt is prone to rust from every surface due to the pervasive nature of the racing surface. To see it in such stunning condition now, one can only imagine the painstaking level of disassembly and restoration needed after the race. Restored by Patrick Ottis in 2005, chassis 3309 is a V12 masterpiece that has earned a lavish retirement.
