Showcasing a stunning pair of Ferraris, alongside a collection of race-worthy classics, each build will be available for viewing by appointment only, and RM Sotheby’s 2021 Arizona sale will stream live via the organisation’s official website.
Regarded an outstanding example of Ferrari’s next step in its hypercar evolution following the F50, the Ferrari Enzo on offer, chassis no. 131319, was delivered new to its original owner via Foreign Cars Italia in Greensboro, North Carolina and was promptly featured as the cover car for Car and Driver’s July 2003 issue, as the willing subject of the first official testing review available to the United States audience. Showing just under 12,000 miles from new and presented in its original Giallo Modena over tan leather interior, the Enzo benefits from a recent mechanical service and is ready to be driven and enjoyed by its next enthusiast caretaker for a mere $2,250,000 – $2,500,000.
Joining the Enzo in Arizona in making headlines is another fantastic Ferrari, a genuinely rare, “low roof” 1956 Ferrari 250 GT Alloy Coupe coachbuilt by Felice Mario Boano in 1957. As one of just 14 alloy-bodied coupes produced by Boano between 1956 and 1958, chassis no. 0613 GT benefits from a rich and well-documented provenance, including its factory build records, in-period race victories, and more recently, certification by Ferrari Classiche. Worth approximately $1,200,000 – $1,400,000, the 1956 Ferrari 250 GT Alloy Coupe was a regular and successful fixture at both the California Mille and Colorado Grand. Attesting to its Ferrari Classiche Certification, the 0613 GT retains its original V-12 engine, gearbox, rear differential, and alloy body.
With a promise to deliver hard-to-find and highly sought-after cars, the RM Sotheby’s 2021 Arizona sale continues all long-standing traditions of representing very different, but important moments, in an all-new new venue and format. Other line-up highlights include, a 2019 Ford GT ‘Lightweight’ showing just six miles on the odometer and presented in a rare color combination of Liquid Blue over black interior, a 2001 Ferrari 550 Barchetta Pininfarina, and a CCCA Full Classic 1932 Cadillac V-16 Convertible Coupe by Fisher, which not only retains its original chassis, engine, and coachwork but boasts a meticulously maintained restoration by Fran Roxas.
