RM Sotheby's Ferrari 'Leggenda e Passione' Auction is All Kinds of Special
A few days ago, we reported that Ferrari will be auctioning a one-off Leferrari Aperta on September 9, or later today, to benefit the Save the Children charity as part of the "Leggenda e Passione" sale organized with auction house RM Sotheby’s. Well, we took a lot at the entire lot to be auctioned off on that day and it certainly looks like a 'Wish List' for any Ferrari fan. For the tifosi on a budget, the most affordable item is a Ferrari 24-Hour Briefcase wrapped in tan leather with Ferrari pattern fabric on the front and rear that is expected to go from €1,500 to €3,000 (from around P92,000 to over P184,000).
Parts from various Ferraris will also go up on sale like: the owner's manual, parts catalogue, warranty booklet, and the leather folio which carries all three for a 365 GTB/4; a set of four original 7.5 x14 Campagnolo wheels and an original warranty card for a 246 Dino; and a complete "brand-new, never been used" left-hand drive dashboard for a 330 GT. As for the cars on the lot, the most affordable one is the 1991 Ferrari 348 TS with only 337 kilometers on the odometer and can go from €125,000 to €150,000 (P7.67 million to P9.20 million).
Other notable cars on the lot are:
- a 2013 Ferrari LaFerrari Prototype (€1.1 million to €1.3 million or over P67 million to over P79 million) that was kept in the factory Atelier and used to configure the LaFerrari of customers who made the trip to the factory to have their car personalized to their taste but is not homologated for road use and cannot be registered for use on the road;
- a 1969 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona Berlinetta Alloy by Scaglietti (€1.4 million to €1.7 million or over P85 million to over P104 million) that is the sole road-going version with an aluminum body commissioned by Ferrari and is now in an unrestored, barn-find condition;
