Ferrari Leggenda Auction Highlights

RM Sotheby’s announced a lineup of recent entries for its single-marque Ferrari Leggenda e Passione sale, set for 9 September 2017 in partnership with Ferrari. Held at the marque’s factory in Maranello, the auction celebrates Ferrari’s 70th anniversary year with automotive milestones across seven decades.

Highlights among recent entries for the event are led by a numbers-matching 1959 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spider by Scaglietti, chassis 1503 GT. The Cal Spider is offered from nearly two decades of single ownership, having seldom been shown over this time. Sporting a maintained restoration, it is ready for enjoyment on the show field or the vintage rally circuit (Est. €7,500,000 – €9,500,000).

The 1985 Ferrari 288 GTO on offer at Maranello, chassis 57709, is a preserved example with only 729 km from new. The 255th of 272 ever built, the 288 GTO is virtually as-new throughout, having been purchased by its current owner in 1993 and stored ever since. Discovered earlier this year, the car has been reconditioned and is preserved inside and out (Est. €3,250,000 – €4,000,000).
