A stunning single-owner collection of Ferraris will be offered at RM Sotheby's next month, as part of the company's flagship two-day sale in Monterey, California.

The 'Ferrari Performance Collection' features 13 of the most famous Ferraris of the past 50 years, all presented in fully-restored condition with low mileage, and most offered without reserve.

Leading the collection is a 1961 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta, described as "one of the most iconic road cars produced".

The car, chassis 2985, is the 110th example of only 165 ever produced, with around 40 built to road-car specifications in 1961.

Having been restored to concours condition, and awarded a Platinum award at Cavallino in 2016, the SWB is estimated to sell for $8.5 – $10 million.

Also expected to achieve a seven-figure sum is a matching-numbers 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 Berlinetta by Scaglietti, in factory-correct Rosso over Pelle Nera and complete with its original tool roll.

Presented with Ferrari Classiche certification, the Berlinetta is valued at $2.75 - $3.25 million.

Further vintage examples will include a 1969 Ferrari Dino 206 GT estimated at $650,000 – $750,000; a 1976 Ferrari 308 GTB ‘Vetroresina’ priced at $175,000 – $225,000; a 1984 Ferrari 512 BBi estimated at $375,000 – $450,000; and a 1989 Ferrari 328 GTS valued at $90,000 – $120,000.

And for bidders seeking a more modern take on the prancing horse, the collection also offers some of the most stylish Ferraris of recent years.

Leading lots include a 2011 Ferrari 599 GTO estimated at $700,000 – $800,000; a 2009 Ferrari 16M Scuderia Spider estimated at $350,000 – $400,000; and a 2005 Ferrari 575 Superamerica estimated at $375,000 – $450,000.

The RM Sotheby's Monterey Sale takes place at the Portola Hotel & Spa and Monterey Conference Center on August 18 – 19.
