RM Sotheby’s will feature 13 Ferraris in an ensemble it’s calling the ‘Performance Collection’ at its Monterey car week sale, kicking off August 19 in Monterey, California.
The Performance Collection constitutes a terrific starter Ferrari collection for the uninitiated billionaire who feels it’s high time to fill his or her garage with Maranello’s finest.
The collection includes early-era classics and modern sports cars, including the 1961 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta; 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 Berlinetta by Scaglietti; 1969 Ferrari Dino 206 GT; 1976 Ferrari 308 GTB ‘Vetroresina’; 1984 Ferrari 512 BBi; 1984 Ferrari 512 BBi; 1989 Ferrari 328 GTS; 1991 Ferrari F40; 2005 Ferrari 575 Superamerica; 2004 Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale; 2009 Ferrari 16M Scuderia Spider; 2009 Ferrari 430 Scuderia; and 2011 Ferrari 599 GTO.
How much these cars will sell for is anyone’s guess, but the combined estimated values add up to $23,889,893 ($18,895,000 USD)—chump change for such a collection, mind you, as these cars will undoubtedly continue on as appreciating assets.
The cars are being sold individually and not necessary as a collection, and it’s thus possible 13 enthusiasts will drive away proud Ferrari owners. Of course, one well-moneyed bidder could take home the whole lot, too.
“The younger generation, the new collectors [are] looking for cars that are sub-$500,000,” said Gord Duff, RM Sotheby’s global head of auctions.
“The post-2000 cars are in a sort of sweet spot for investment-minded buyers: They’re thoroughly modern drivers, but they’re still seeing respectable price appreciation.”
