FEATURED CAR TO BE AUCTIONED
Leading the pack to the auction block is this 1967 Ferrari 412P, an incredibly rare racing machine and one of the most unique Ferraris ever to hit the market. The 412P Berlinetta is one of the most spectacular examples of Ferrari’s beauty plus performance to compete during the 1960s LeMans racing championships.
This particular Ferrari 412P once secured crucial championship points in order for the Ferrari racing team to win in 1967 and was the winner of the 1968 Nuremberg 200km, the Solituderennen, and the Swedish Grand Prix.
This particular Ferrari 412P Berlinetta played a pivotal role in securing crucial championship points enabling the Ferrari racing team to clinch victory in 1967. This Berlinatts was also the winner of the 1968 Nuremberg 200km, the Solituderennen, and the Swedish Grand Prix.
This vehicle, driven in its time by motoring legends such as David Piper, Jo Siefert, and Richard Attwood, is one of the most aesthetically pleasing sports racing cars ever manufactured, boasting a rich history from its inception.
This car is set to break all price records with an expected sell price of about $38,000,000.
The 1967 Ferrari 412P was driven in 1967 and 3rd Place at the 1000kms of Spa (Attwood/Bianchi); at Le Mans (Attwood/Courage); and 7th Place at Brands Hatch (Siffert/Piper).
Another Ferrari with a Le Man’s legacy is the 1951 Ferrari 212 Export Barchetta, s/n 0100E, which completed the famous race with Charles Moran at the wheel.
The Ferrari 212 Export Barchetta is a two-seat sports racing car that was built by Ferrari’s racing division, Scuderia Ferrari, in the early 1950s. It was designed by Carrozzeria Touring and is part of the 212 series of cars that Ferrari produced during that era.
More specifically, the 212 Export Barchetta was specifically crafted for racing. It achieved significant triumphs on the track, participating in a multitude of international racing events including the Tour de France automobile, the Giro di Sicilia, the Coppa della Toscana, the 10 Hours of Messina, and other motor races throughout its career. The 212 Export Barchetta is equipped with a 2.6-liter V12 engine, capable of generating approximately 150 horsepower. It was a well-sought-after sports car that was produced by Ferrari in 1951–1952.
The Ferrari Barchetta is estimated to sell for between $4,250,000 – $4,750,000
The automotive world’s rich history is well represented by early motoring, featuring the ex-A.K. Miller 1916 Stutz Model 4C Bearcat – one of the finest surviving examples of the model, the 1914 Simplex 50hp Touring with an impressive early history and original coachwork, and the powerful 1909 Lorraine-Dietrich 16.4-Liter Grand Prix Two-Seater. The 1916 Stut is looking to bring around: $1,750,000 – $2,750,000.
“Of them all, the Ace was the truest sports car: it could be used for daily commuting or for high-speed long-distance touring, but it could also be driven to a race meeting, campaigned with distinction, and driven home again – even if that race was the Le Mans 24 Hours.” – AC Heritage, Simon Taylor & Peter Burn.
the Bonhams Quail Montery Auction will also be serving up a collection of stunning pre-WWII Alfa Romeos, including two 6C 1750 Sport Spiders, a 1931 Bentley 4½ Liter Supercharged Tourer – one of the original 50 produced, a 1932 Duesenberg Model J ‘Sweep Panel’ Dual-Cowl Phaeton with over $1,800,000 in restoration receipts, and even a 1936 Pierce-Arrow Model 1245 Convertible Coupe with a Curtis Aerocar Trailer.
The post-WWII era will be well represented by sports cars of exceptional quality and variety, such as the lively 1949 Talbot-Lago T 26 Grand Sport Cabriolet with close-coupled Dubos coachwork, previously owned by Anthony Bamford and Lindley Locke, a 1955 Lancia B24S Spider America fresh from a $500,000 restoration, a 1958 Ferrari 250 GT Coupe with a stunning, Concours-winning restoration, and a 1959 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Roadster that has proven its mettle on multiple 1000-mile tours.
Whether you’re interested in a sports racer like the 1966 Porsche 906/’Carrera Six’ Two-Seat Endurance Racing Coupe, a modern supercar such as the 2003 Ferrari Enzo or 2011 Ferrari 599 GTO, or an emerging collector’s car like the 1997 Subaru Impreza 22B-STI Prototype, Bonham’s’ Quail Auction has something for everyone.
