Rare 1967 Ferrari will sell at Amelia Island

RM Auctions is offering non-stop classic car action for automobile collectors in the first quarter of 2010.

While anticipation reaches fever pitch in the run-up to next week's Automobiles of Arizona event, RM has already announced an important consignment to its Automobiles of Amelia Island auction.

The 12th annual sale will take place on March 13, in Florida - and the consignment is no-less than a magnificent 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 Alloy Berlinetta.

In total, some 100 automobiles are set to cross the block during the single-day auction, which will again act as a prelude to this year's world famous Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance.

The rare 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 Alloy Berlinetta

Featuring coachwork by Scaglietti, the rare 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 Alloy Berlinetta was displayed as Luigi Chinetti's show car at the 1967 New York Auto Show, before finding its way into private ownership.

Finished in the unusual colour of Nocciola with a black interior, it has been recently restored by its current long-term owner, a Ferrari authority who has carefully maintained the car over the past 30 years.

Fitted with a number of desirable options - including air conditioning, power windows and Borrani wire wheels - this magnificent example has participated in various Ferrari Club of America sanctioned events.

The 275 GTB is an ideal candidate for a successful concours career with its next caretaker.

"Over the past 11 years, RM has established a proven track record of strong performance at Amelia Island, selling over $25m-plus vehicles as well as setting numerous new records," said Ian Kelleher, President and Chief Operating Officer of RM Auctions.

"A popular and established event on our annual calendar, we look forward to returning to Amelia Island's prestigious Ritz-Carlton Hotel in March to build on our past results and celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance."
