Ferrari Supercars Race To Gooding & Company’s Amelia Island Auction
SANTA MONICA, CA – February 24, 2017 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Gooding & Company, the auction house acclaimed for selling the world’s most significant and valuable collector cars, is proud to announce an enticing lineup of Ferrari supercars headed to the Amelia Island Auction on March 10. Collectors and enthusiasts of these high-performance sports cars will not want to miss the rare and thrilling examples that will cross the auction block next month.
“There is nothing like the feeling of getting behind the wheel of a Ferrari supercar and experiencing the otherworldly power and noise,” notes David Brynan, Senior Specialist at Gooding & Company. “Each of these Ferraris are limited-production, exclusive offerings that deliver unmatched performance and unique specifications.”
2015 Ferrari LaFerrari
The car offered here represents an exciting opportunity to own the illustrious LaFerrari. This like-new example has less than 130 miles and was ordered in the rare special-order color of Giallo Triplo Strato. In addition, this LaFerrari came specially ordered with options costing over $124,000, including carbon fiber fog lamps, mirrors, dashboard, upper and lower body portions, wheel caps and the rare carbon fiber roof panel. Accent seat stitching was added by the factory and the vehicle is accessorized with fitted luggage, owner’s manuals, and a telemetry key fob. Issued with the car is a Ferrari factory Attestation for Special Series Vehicles, an identity document which asserts that the car is original as produced by Ferrari. When a contemporary, as-new model is offered on the open market, it is a rare opportunity to enter an exclusive echelon of automotive ownership.
1990 Ferrari F40
The Ferrrari F40 is one of the last projects overseen by Enzo Ferrari himself, and a modern distillation of everything a Ferrari was meant to be. The twin-turbocharged DOHC V-8 produced 478 bhp and could rocket the F40 to over 200 mph. This car, chassis 03965, is the 77th of 213 cars built for the North American market and has traveled less than 1,600 miles. It has been documented with Ferrari Classiche Red Book Certification, extensive service invoices, a Marcel Massini report, and is accompanied by the original wallet, books, tool kit, and accessories. The F40, purposeful and sublime, is often called Ferrari’s greatest road-going supercar. This example represents an opportunity to acquire one in outstanding original condition with impeccable provenance and service records. Surely one of the finest, low-mileage US-spec F40s in the world, it is the benchmark example of its rare and desirable breed.
2007 Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano
Introduced at the Geneva Auto Show in 2006, the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano supplanted the 575M and continued a company tradition of building front-engine V-12 sports and GT cars. This 599 is one of only 32 produced worldwide, and a mere 20 built for the US market with the extremely desirable 6-speed gated manual transmission. Presented in the very attractive color combination of Rosso Rubino over beige leather interior, this exceptional 599 GTB is offered with its complete set of books, unopened tool kit, battery tender, keys, window sticker, and VIP build book. The opportunity to purchase a late-model Ferrari with the iconic-gated shifter is a seldom-seen occurrence, and an opportunity to purchase the last manual gearbox, 12-cylinder Ferrari model ever made is an event unto itself.
