Ferraris lead early entries for RM Sotheby's Paris sale
RM Sotheby's has announced early entries for its forthcoming Paris sale, led by a pair of stylish Ferraris.
The annual sale, held as part of the renowned Retromobile week of events, will include more than 60 hand-picked automobiles led a unique 2004 Ferrari Enzo and an iconic Ferrari F40.
The specifications of the Enzo, chassis 135564, include red ‘Cartier’ upholstery, carbon wing and mirror, tinted windows, Enzo monograms, Alpine GPS and audio system, and a reverse camera. The car, which is currently going through Ferrari Classiche certification, has just 2,500km on the clock and is estimated at €1.500.000-€2.000.000.
The F40 is one of the most famous 'poster cars' of the past 30 years, and the example on offer is presented in the classic Ferrari Rosso red. It was formerly owned by the Italian powerboat racer and playboy Stefano Casiraghi, second husband of Princess Caroline of Monaco, who was tragically killed in a powerboat accident in 1990. With only 4,300km from new, the F40 comes with a price tag of €1.000.000 - €1.200.000.
“All Ferrari supercars are special, but these two early entries for our Paris sale each boast unique and highly desirable histories along with low, original mileage,” says Max Girardo, Managing Director, RM Sotheby’s Europe. “We’re looking forward to another great sale in Paris to kick off our 2016 European auction calendar.”
Further notable early entries include a 1978 Ferrari 512 BB estimated at €400.000-€450.000; a 1963 Ghia L6.4 Coupé estimated at €250.000-€330.000; a 1955 Porsche 356 Pre-A Speedster, estimated at €250,000-€ 300,000; and a 1956 Austin-Healey 100 M 'Le Mans' estimated at €160.000-€200.000.
The RM Sotheby's Paris sale takes place at Place Vauban on February 3, immediately after the Festival Automobile International.
