At the 2016 edition of Salon Retromobile in Paris next February 5-6, Artcurial Motorcars will offer a handful of significant Ferraris, led by a 1957 Ferrari 335 S Spider Scaglietti, chassis 0674, from the Pierre Bardinon collection (above and video below). During that 1957 season 0674 was raced by a group of drivers that included Peter Collins, Maurice Trintignant, Wolfgang von Trips, Mike Hawthorn and Luigi Musso as part of Ferrari’s successful 1957 World Constructors Championship effort.
At the beginning of 1958 0674 was sold to Ferrari’s American importer, Luigi Chinetti, who entered the car for Stirling Moss and Masten Gregory in the Grand Prix of Cuba, which they won. Later in the year it was also driven by Lance Reventlow and Gaston Andrey, and then in 1960 was bought by Pennsylvania architect Robert Dusek. A decade later, Dusek sold the car to fabled Ferrari collector Pierre Bardinon in France. Kept as part of Bardinon’s private collection for more than 40 years, 0674 has been used and maintained regularly and is presented in excellent condition. Bidding for this car is expected to reach into the $30 million range.
Also among the 130 automobiles being offered by Artcurial on February 5 are the following Ferraris:
1962 250 GT Cabriolet Series 2, ex-King of Morocco, from the Adrien Maeght collection
1963 250 GT SWB Berlinetta from the Antoine Midy collection
1972 365 GTB/4 Daytona
1986 Testrossa Spider built for Fiat boss Gianni Agnelli
