What was once one of the most important collections of vintage and collector Ferraris in the world has been salvaged from bankruptcy wreckage and sold by Hamann Classic Cars of Greenwich, Connecticut.
Founded in 1902 by the great grandfather of current Chairman Frits Kroymans, Kroymans was the exclusive Ferrari Distributor in Holland. The $3 billion automobile empire ended in early 2009, when the company filed for bankruptcy.
“We are thrilled to be a part of the salvation of this very important collection of vintage Ferraris,” said Thomas Hamann, Owner of Hamann Classic Cars and Chairman of the New York City Concours d’Elegance, who brokered the deal between the European banks and Tom Price, a prominent classic car collector from Northern California.
The selling price was not listed, although speculation is that it will become public once the Kroymans bankruptcy is completed. The list of Ferraris purchased by Tom Price include:
250 Europa GT
250 SWB Berlinetta
250 GTO s/n 4757GT
275 GTB/4 Alloy ex N.A.R.T.
365 GTB/4 Daytona Coupe
365 GTB/4 Daytona Spyder
246 GTS Dino Spyder
2002 Ferrari F1, Winner of US Grand Prix

The GTO reportedly sold for $26 Million US. Oh why
oh why did my Father sell his in the 70’s????
I had to end up using my Visa card to compete in the bidding but missed out by $.5 million. Oh, well! :-)) Good news that the cars were saved and may be moved to the colonies.
