Classic Ferraris in the Gooding Pebble Beach Sale 2022
Although the choice Ferrari on offer at Monterey 2022 is the 1955 Ferrari 410 Sport Spider by Scaglietti, estimate $25,000,000 – $30,000,000, in the RM Sotheby’s auction but Gooding will also have several very desirable classic Ferraris on offer:
1950 Ferrari 166 MM Berlinetta Le Mans
Introduced in 1948, the Tipo 166 set off a course of development that would define the look, sound, and character of Ferrari automobiles for decades to come. The 166 Mille Miglia, or MM, specifically dominated sports car racing in the late 1940s and early 1950s, and at the time was the only car to win all three of the great European sports car races: the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Targa Florio, and the Mille Miglia. Unveiled at Geneva in 1950, the 166 MM Berlinetta Le Mans was the happy result of the collaboration between Ferrari and Carrozzeria Touring, boasting a beautiful fastback body sculpted from lightweight aluminum. Designed specifically for high-speed endurance racing, the Berlinettas featured a business-like cockpit, and came equipped with leather tie-down straps, large external fuel fillers, and lightweight Plexiglass windows.
The 1950 Ferrari 166 MM Berlinetta Le Mans (Estimate: $5,500,000 – $6,500,000), chassis 0066 M, is the last of just five 166 MM chassis originally fashioned with Touring’s Berlinetta Le Mans coachwork. Since its completion, 0066 M has led an extraordinary existence, competing in European rallies and Italian hillclimbs with its first owners, including the Trieste-Opicina Hillclimb and the Coppa d’Oro delle Dolomiti in the early 1950s.
In the US, 0066 M has been a fixture in the collections of notable enthusiasts, including Fred Leydorf, John Bond, and Chip Connor, during which time it has been meticulously cared for, and even featured in the pages of significant motoring magazines like Road & Track and Prancing Horse. This important, even-serial-number Ferrari competition car beautifully presents today in traditional Italian racing red, and is Ferrari Classiche Red Book certified, confirming that it retains its original chassis, body, engine, gearbox, and rear end.
1961 Ferrari 400 Superamerica Series I Coupé Aerodinamico
Ferrari’s “America” series of custom-bodied, large-displacement grand touring cars were built for the most elite clientele, including international royals, Italian industrialists, and American sportsmen, among others. Included in this group of customers was Count Giovanni Volpi di Misurata, the Italian nobleman who founded Scuderia Serenissima, one of the top privateer racing teams of the early 1960s. As one of the most important figures in the history of postwar Italian motorsport, Count Volpi was one of the first customers to place an order for a 400 Superamerica, Ferrari’s latest and most expensive gran turismo, a new model only recently introduced to the public.
Volpi’s 1961 Ferrari 400 Superamerica Series I Coupé Aerodinamico (Estimate: $4,000,000 – $5,000,000), chassis 2809 SA, was one of the first examples to wear the new Coupé Aerodinamico body style, which was inspired by Pininfarina’s sensational Superfast II show car. In total, Pininfarina built just 14 examples on the original short-wheelbase chassis, and of these, seven were completed with the desirable covered headlamp treatment, including the car offered here. The body of 2809 SA is especially noteworthy, as it was the sole example built from lightweight aluminum rather than the default steel.
Count Volpi also ordered his car in the striking, one-off color scheme of Nero Tropicale over Tobacco Connolly leather, and had it equipped with detachable headrests, lockable interior storage compartments, seatback pockets, Klippan seat belts, and a Blaupunkt radio. Once completed in 1961, this Coupé Aerodinamico was photographed by Pininfarina for promotional purposes, and also exhibited at the Concorso d’Eleganza di Rimini, where it was awarded Best of Show.
More recently, following a careful preservation-minded detailing in 2015, 2809 SA was showcased at several important events, and was the recipient of awards at Pebble Beach, Cavallino Classic, and the Ferrari Club of America International Meet Concours. Today, 2809 SA remains in well-preserved, largely unrestored condition, possessing an irreplaceable patina and showing less than 24,000 km on the clock.
1954 Ferrari 500 Mondial Series I Spider
In December 1953, Ferrari unveiled its first four-cylinder production sports car, the 500 Mondial, named in honor of Alberto Ascari’s back-to-back World Championships. Featuring a two-liter, twin-cam, four-cylinder engine designed by Aurelio Lampredi, the Mondial was constructed on a tubular steel chassis with independent-transverse leaf-spring suspension, a rear De Dion axle, Houdaille shock absorbers, and a rear-mounted, four-speed transaxle. In total, Ferrari built 22 examples of the Series I 500 Mondial for the 1954 season, capturing class wins with the successful new model at Barcelona, Casablanca, Imola, and the Mille Miglia.
The 1954 Ferrari 500 Mondial Series I Spider (Estimate: $2,500,000 – $3,000,000), chassis 0430 MD, is among the 13 examples built with aluminum coachwork by Pinin Farina, and one of only five Mondial Spiders with low-grille, covered-headlamp frontal treatment.
Initially finished in red with a central white stripe, the Mondial was conscripted into duty by Scuderia Ferrari, and in June 1954, driven to victory by Mike Hawthorn and Umberto Maglioli at Monza. After its victory, the 500 Mondial received a factory refresh, being fitted with a proper two-liter tipo 110 engine and repainted in dark blue. Once it made its way into the hands of serious American collectors, 0430 MD compiled an enviable racing record, extensively competing in leading North American venues between 1954 and 1958 and raking in several wins as the 1957 SCCA E-Modified National Champion with famed Swiss driver Gaston Andrey.
1999 Ferrari 333 S
The 1999 Ferrari 333 SP, chassis 025 (Estimate: $4,500,000 – $5,500,0000) is an outstanding example of the last endurance racing car built by Ferrari.
As the first competition prototype introduced since the development of the 312 P, the 333 SP signified Ferrari’s return to endurance racing as its last sports racing prototype. Developed in partnership with Dallara, the car was an important hallmark in the legacy of the Italian marque, particularly in the late 1990s. This car, chassis 025, was delivered new to Fredy Lienhard, the Swiss gentleman racer who owned LISTA, the Swiss-based cabinet manufacturer and major motorsport sponsor. Chassis 025 was prepared and run by Kevin Doran, who entered the car under Doran-Lista Racing. The Ferrari was subsequently raced during the 1999 and 2000 seasons, primarily in the US, where it was driven by some of the era’s greatest drivers, including Didier Theys, Mauro Baldi, Arie Luyendyk, Ross Bentley, and of course, team owner Fredy Lienhard.
During its active racing career, this 1999 Ferrari 333 SP wore LISTA sponsorship and racked up several notable results, including 8th Overall at the 1999 24 Hours of Daytona, 2nd Overall at the 1999 ALMS Grand Prix of Road Atlanta, 1st Overall at the USRRC Grand Prix at Lime Rock, as well as 5th Overall at the 12 Hours of Sebring. It also achieved 1st Overall finishes at Homestead and Road America in 2000.
Top Modern Supercar Ferraris at Gooding Pebble Beach 2022
Modern supercars and near-new hypercars are playing a minor role at Monterey Week 2022 auctions. Only Mecum and Gooding have a significant number on offer including an almost “full set” of modern Ferrari supercars:
1995 Ferrari F50
In 1995, Ferrari unveiled the brilliantly engineered F50 supercar, highlighting the use of authentic Grand Prix technology with the purity of a free-revving, naturally aspirated V-12 engine. Its Pininfarina-designed bodywork was inspired by Ferrari’s famed Mythos concept car, featuring a carefully refined wind tunnel and underbody aerodynamics.
Once announced, the F50 was extremely rare and difficult to access, with only 349 examples built in total. Of those, just 55 examples were specifically built for the US market, including the 1995 Ferrari F50 (Estimate: $4,500,000 – $5,500,000).
Finished in the definitive Rosso Corsa (Racing Red) livery, this example has been driven just 6,200 miles and is offered with rare factory-delivered accessories, including its hardtop crate, luggage, books, tools, and presentation book. It comes to market with exceptional provenance, having been formerly owned by heavyweight champion boxer Mike Tyson.
This F50 sold for $2,640,000 at the RM Sotheby’s Amelia Island 2017 sale — it was traded again since that sale.
2004 Ferrari Enzo
The Enzo is without a doubt one of Ferrari’s most important supercars, named after the legendary founder of the iconic Italian marque, il Commendatore himself. Deeply rooted in Formula 1 technology and boasting angular, sleek bodywork styled by Pininfarina designer Ken Okuyama, the Ferrari Enzo is a supercar sensation, both mechanically and cosmetically.
The 2004 Ferrari Enzo (Estimate: $3,500,000 – $4,000,000) is one of just six Enzos finished in the exceedingly rare color of Grigio Titanio. It is a low-mileage example, displaying less than 2,730 miles.
1990 Ferrari F40
The breathtaking F40 was the final automotive project overseen by Enzo Ferrari before his passing, making it a significant model and milestone in the history and legacy of the Italian automaker. The 1990 Ferrari F40 (Estimate: $2,750,000 – $3,250,000), featuring coachwork by Scaglietti, is the 77th of only 213 US-specification F40s built and comes to auction with a notably well-documented provenance, having been exclusively owned by collectors from new. This exceptionally original example showed just 1,800 miles and is accompanied by a Ferrari Classiche Red Book, as well as a report by veteran Ferrari historian Marcel Massini.
