Five legendary Ferraris for sale by RM Sotheby’s

“Dare to Dream”

Vita gazette – RM Sotheby’s auction house is selling five legendary Ferrari models from 31 May to 1 June 2024.

RM Sotheby’s auction house offers some of the craziest models or examples from the history of the automobile. The sale will take place from 31 May to 1 June 2024. The collection includes motorcycles, automobile parts and items, and unique cars. But the world will focus on the five stars of this forthcoming sale. These are the “Big Five”, or in other words, the five models that have revolutionised Ferrari’s history. 

Here are the jewels that everyone dreams of;

1985 Ferrari 288 GTO

There are only 272 examples of Italian Ferrari’s 288 GTO model. The superb Ferrari 288 GTO is a rival to the Porsche 959 and Lamborghini Countach. It has just 26,617 km (16,539 miles)  on the clock and joined the Dare to Dream collection in 2015.

Estimate: $3,750,000 – $4,000,000 (£3,000,000 – £3,200,000)

1990 Ferrari F40

The legendary F40 is the most beautiful car in the world, competing with the Mercedes 300 SL. It is equipped with a twin-turbo V8 engine and has just 1,606 km (998 miles) on the clock. One thousand three hundred fifteen were sold.

Its water pump was replaced in 2015, and its turbo unit was rebuilt in 2020. The air conditioning system was also recharged last year. Like all Ferraris of this standing, it has the Ferrari Classiche certificate of authenticity and the red book.

Estimate: $2,750,000 – $3,250,000 (£2,200,000 – £2,600,000)

1996 Ferrari F50

Limited to 349 examples, the Ferrari F50 was designed as a Formula 1 car for the road. Equipped with a naturally aspirated V12 engine (derived from Formula 1), this 519-PS F50 can propel to 62 mph in 3.6 seconds.

This example, the 182nd built, was owned by a Monaco-based collector for the first 13 years of its life and joined the Dare to Dream collection in 2015, as did the previous two cars. With 20,910 km (12,993 miles) on the clock, the F50 offered for sale by RM Sotheby’s has also obtained its Ferrari Classiche-certified red book.

Estimate: $3,800,000 – $4,500,000 (£3,050,000 – £3,615,000)

Ferrari Enzo 2003

Enzo’s design distinguishes it from its predecessors, and its 6-litre V12, which differs significantly from that of the F50, propels this masterful car to 225 mph.

This 660-PS Ferrari was tested by Evo magazine at the Nürburgring five years after its launch. The Enzo clocked a time of 7 min 25 s 7, just seven tenths slower than the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 released eight years later. It belonged to the ‘Caiola’ family until June 2006, when it was sold to a Beverly Hills-based supercar collector. Later, the Enzo, with 8,607 km (5,348 miles) on the clock, joined the Dare to Dream collection in 2015.

Estimate: $3,750,000 – $4,250,000 (£3,012,000 – £3,410,000)

2015 Ferrari LaFerrari

Inspired by the Enzo, this model is just as spectacular as its predecessors and is by far the most powerful, with 963 PS. Above all, it is the first hybrid Ferrari in history, of which only 499 were produced, including this one.

With 2,842 km (1,766 miles) on the clock, this LaFerrari example is accompanied by the Ferrari Yellow Book. It joined the Dare to Dream collection in 2016.

Estimate: $3,850,000 – $4,250,000 (£3,100,000 – £3,410,000)
