Ferrari Performance Collection up for auction

Though it may seem an unlucky number, 13 is exactly how many of the finest cars from Maranello will find themselves some very lucky new owners come the time of RM Sotheby’s next Monterey auction.

With estimated prices ranging from $12,631,000 to $113,700 there’ll be something for everyone. Er, as long as everyone has more than $113,700 that is.

The headline act for the collection is a ’61 250 GT SWB Berlinetta, which RM estimates will find a new owner for over $10,736,000 AUD. It’s an example that has been restored to concours condition, and has only 79385 kilometres showing.

In between, there is an F40, a Dino 206, a 2005 Superamerica, and a 16M Scuderia Spider. There are pretty much no wrong answers in this multiple choice question.

Someone could be about to pick themselves up a Prancing bargain.
