Ferrari 500 Superfast classic car rolls into Scottsdale, Arizona auction

How's this for a bona fide rolling work of art? This 1965 Ferrari 500 Superfast is going under the hammer between January 20-21 in Scottsdale, Arizona.

The car is also super rare, being one of only 36,500 Superfasts ever built. It has had only five owners from new, including Prince Sadruddin Aga Khan and Pierre Bardinon.

Prince Sadruddin served as United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees from 1966 to 1978, helping to highlight complex refugee issues. Pierre Bardinon was the owner of the Mas du Clos circuit and a noted collector.

This car is billed as a "very original matching numbers example". Beneath its coachwork by Pininfarina is a beautifully-preserved original interior.

Meanwhile, under the car's bonnet is a 4,963 CC SOHC V-12 Engine with Triple Weber 40 DCZ/6 Carburetors. The engine's 400 BHP at 6,500 RPM capability is enhanced by its 5-Speed Manual Gearbox.

This 1965 Ferrari 500 Superfast has less than 65,000 original kilometers (approximately 40,000 miles) on the clock. It has also been recently restored by Paul Russell and Company.

Not surprisingly, the car is well-documented by Ferrari historian Marcel Massini. It is appearing for sale with its complete tool kit and records and a $950,000-$1,250,000 presale estimate.
