BLENHEIM, CANADA – April 26, 2023 – (Motor Sports NewsWire)Continuing to offer the most exclusive cars on the planet, Sotheby’s Sealed is proud to announce a set of stunning Ferraris that will be available this coming May. The duo consists of a highly sought-after prototype Ferrari as well as an Alain Prost-owned Ferrari F40.

1990 Ferrari F40 – By the end of the 1989 Formula 1 World Championship, Alain Prost had become one of the most successful drivers in the history of the sport. With three World Championships to his name, Prost joined the likes of Juan Manuel Fangio, Jack Brabham, Jackie Stewart, Niki Lauda, and Nelson Piquet, to be counted among the greatest drivers of all time. As the incoming lead driver for Ferrari, it was only fitting that Prost would be gifteda Ferrari for use away from the circuit. And what better car for a reigning World Champion than a brand-new F40—the fastest road-going automobile the world had ever seen. Delivered new to Prost during his first season as a Scuderia Ferrari Formula 1 driver, this low-mileage, Ferrari Classiche-Certified example retains its original chassis, engine, gearbox, and bodywork and boasts the highly desirable ‘non-cat, non-adjust’ specification. Featured in the April 1997 issue of Motor Sport magazine and awarded Second in Class at the Ferrari 70th Anniversary Concours in Maranello, this example will go to its new owner with a toolkit and set of Schedoni luggage. The 1990 Ferrari F40 will open for bidding on the Sotheby’s Sealed platform from 10 May, 5 p.m. BST to 12 May, 5 p.m. BST.

230426 the Very First Ferrari 365 GTB:4 Daytona Prototype

1967 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona Prototype by Scaglietti – Offered from twenty years of single-family ownership and fitted with a completely unique prototype Tipo 243, 4,380-cc V-12 engine with six Weber carburetors, this example is the very first 365 GTB/4 Daytona prototype constructed. Sitting directly in the middle of two of Ferrari’s most significant GT models—the 275 GTB/4 and the 365 GTB/4 Daytona—and offering the best of the two, chassis number 10287 remains unique yet instantly recognizable as the transition between the two models and boasts a fascinating story. Painstakingly restored by Dutch-based Ferrari specialists and shown at only a handful of select events since it won Best of Show at the 2016 Concours d’Elegance Paleis Het Loo Apeldoorn and would surely be welcomed with open arms at any of the world’s most celebrated events due to its place in Ferrari history. This Daytona Prototype offers a unique opportunity and would be the highlight of any Ferrari collection worldwide. The 1967 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona Prototype will be open for bidding on the Sotheby’s Sealed platform from 22 May, 5 p.m. BST to 26 May, 5 p.m. BST.
