It’s a dream collection for just about any car enthusiast and one that spans nearly 50 years of automotive history. It’s also a collection that is on sale at the Gooding & Co’s auction in Scottsdale, Arizona, on January 17-18, 2020. The Ferrari Spyder Collection brings together six open-top Ferrari Spyders.
The list of cars in the collection starts with a 1995 F50. Only 55 of these cars were made to US specs, and this particular model only shows 5,200 miles. Next on the list is a 1972 365 GTB/4 Daytona Spyder formerly owned by director, actor, and producer Sydney Pollack, and is the only car in the collection not done in red but rather in silver. Moving back even further into history is a 1960 250 GT Series II Cabriolet. This Spyder comes with the original, unrestored factory hardtop and is one of 200 cars made. The 2001 550 Barchetta is a commemorative car that marks the 70 year anniversary of design house Pininfarina collaborating with the Prancing Horse. The final cars on the block are a 1985 308 GTS Quattrovalvol and a 1990 348 TS.
The whole collection has a combined estimated worth of around $8.3 million. Two of the cars alone—the GTS Quattrovalvole and the 348 TS—are expected to bring in a maximum of $100,000. Prices just go up from there. The 550 Barchetta is estimated at between $400,000 to $500,000, while the 250 GT Series II Cabriolet should bring in between $1,300,000 to $1,500,000. Pollack’s 365 GTB/4 Daytona Spider is valued at $2,000,000 to $2,400,000. The most valuable of the collection, however, is the F50, which is expected to fetch between $3,200,000 to $3,600,000.
The collection is a prime example of both vintage and modern classics and is sure to garner plenty of attention when the sale happens.
