Something like this doesn't happen often.
Next month, RM Auctions will have something very special at its Pebble Beach Monterey event: a 13-car Ferrari collection, all from a single owner. Without question, this is an extraordinary collection of Italian supercars, ranging in both age and model and, not to mention, value. Let's start at the beginning. There's a 1961 250 GT SWB Berlinetta, the 110th of just 165 examples built. It's expected to fetch between $8.5 to $10 million. A little out of your budget?
Fortunately, there's also a 1967 275 GTB/4 with an estimated value of $3 million, an F40 for $1.4 million, one of 152 examples 1969 Dino 206 GT for $700k, a 599 GTO for $750k, and a couple of Berlinetta Boxers valued at about $300k a pop. Oh, we're not done yet. How does a rare 575 Superamerica for around $450k sound? We thought so. There's also a unique 308 GTB with plexi windows for an estimated $200k, a 430 Scuderia coupe and roadster for $275k and $375k, respectively, 360 Challenge Stradale for $300k, 328 GTS for $100k, and a 16M Scuderia Spider for an estimated $375k. Many of these Ferraris have very few miles and are being offered without reserve.
Whoever this private owner is (or was), this Ferrari Performance Collection, as it's formally called, represents 50 years of Prancing Horse greatness. No doubt all of these Ferraris will find new homes. Photos courtesy of Theodore W. Pieper/RM Auctions.
