The Ferrari Tour de France up for auction is a classic Berlinetta

Max Girardo, managing director of RM Sotheby's Europe comments: "The TdF is certainly one of the most successful and iconic dual-purpose Berlinettas ever to wear the Prancing Horse…

"We've witnessed some strong and appreciating values for the model, illustrated by a record price paid for another example in Monterey last week.

"The TdF on offer at our London auction presents a wonderful opportunity to purchase a fresh to the market example that exhibits both great beauty and a fantastic race pedigree."

RM Sotheby's sold another Ferrari Tour de France for $13.2m last week.

A 1973 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona Spider is expected to make £2m-2.4m ($3.1m-3.7m).

The lot has among the lowest mileage of any Spyder in existence, with just over 3,000 miles on the clock.

It's also one of only 121 examples of this classic model ever produced. The Spyder was the last Ferrari to incorporate a front-mounted V-12, making it a key collector's item.
