Steve Todhunter Collection at Mecum Glendale 2021
The anticipated 1,200-car lineup at the Mecum Glendale 2021 auction will be headlined by the collection of Steve Todhunter, which comprises 20 vehicles ranging from seven pristine, low-mile Ferraris to a 1965 Shelby 427 Cobra FAM previously owned by the late actor Paul Walker.
Not only is Todhunter a car collector, but he is also perhaps the quintessential example of such and a man with an eye for evolution. From the humble horsepower heavyweights of the golden era of muscle to the rarest of the Mopar machines and, ultimately, to Ferrari, Todhunter’s preference for powerful and impressive automobiles has followed a path of development focused on quality over quantity. Instead of continuously adding to and growing his collector car stables in numbers alone, Todhunter has poured his efforts into raising the bar in regards to the rarity and desirability of the collector cars within.
Red Ferraris at Mecum Glendale 2021
A highlight of the Todhunter collection on offer at Mecum Glendale 2021 is a group of seven extremely low-mile Ferraris wearing Rosso Corsa red, ranging from a 175-mile 2011 599 GTO (Lot S103) to a 2,254-mile 2018 812 Superfast (Lot S108). The GTO is one of just 599 produced and one of only 125 exported to the U.S., but amazingly, not the rarest of the bunch.
Also in the prancing horse corner is a one-of-499 2009 F430 Scuderia Spider 16M (Lot S107) with just 1,866 miles, a 2016 Ferrari F12tdf (Lot S105) showing just 449 miles and originally owned by Roger Penske, a 2,017-mile, Cavallino Classic-winning 1992 Ferrari 512 TR (Lot S102), a 1,344-mile 2005 Ferrari 575M Superamerica with Ferrari Classiche Red Book (Lot S104) and a 1,497-mile 2001 Ferrari 550 Barchetta Pininfarina (Lot S106).

A non-Ferrari highlight from the same collection is the rare, purpose-built 2006 Saleen S7 Twin Turbo (Lot S109). It is one of just 14 produced, shows a mere 1,167 miles on its clock, and stands as an absolute state-of-the-art American supercar.
