Ferraris are one of those cars that it really doesn’t matter if they’re new or used, they’re still cool. RM Sotheby’s recently got a consignment of seven Ferraris from the Ming Collection that are listed as “as new.”
RM Sotheby’s global head of auctions, Gord Duff, had this to say after visiting the collection: “The quality and originality of the Ming Collection is absolutely incredible. Every single car in the group is nearly better than new and the meticulous level of care that has gone into maintaining these cars is outstanding. You’d be hard-pressed to find any of these models in better condition.”
As an example of that quality, Sotheby’s points to the 2006 Ferrari FXX, which is “essentially still ‘in the wrapper.’”
The seven cars being offered in the Ming Collection include the 2006 Ferrari FXX (one of only 30 track-only developmental prototypes based on the Ferrari Enzo) that is expected to bring between USD$2.85 million to $3.25 million; a 1991 Ferrari F40 that should go for USD$1.5 million to $1.8 million; a 1984 Ferrari 512 BBi valued between USD$350,000 to $425,000 and a 1985 Ferrari 308 GTSi going for USD$100,000 to $150,000.
There’s also a 2007 Ferrari F430 Spider F1 for USD$200,00 to $250,000; a 2013 Ferrari 458 Spider that is expected to go for USD$225,000 to $275,000; and a 1997 Ferrari 355 Spider, that should bring in between USD$125,000 to $150,000.
Each of the cars is done in Ferrari red and has low mileage.
“Ferrari FXX models rarely come up for auction,” stated Gord, “and it is an especially rare opportunity to find one that has never been raced yet has been so well cared for. Add the lineup of additional low-mileage supercars finished in rarely seen colors and our Monterey sale is like a toy store for enthusiasts of modern performance.”
If the Ming Collection doesn’t catch your fancy, Sotheby’s is also offering a 2014 Ferrari LaFerrari, two 2005 Porsche Carrera GTs; a 2009 Bugatti Veyron, and a 2018 Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Volante.
