An array of rare vintage Ferraris are heading for Florida next month, as part of the Gooding & Company Amelia Island auction.
Leading the line-up is a 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4, heading to auction for the first time in its history. The car, chassis 09489, is in completely original unrestored condition and has been described as "one of the most exciting garage finds in recent memory".
Having been acquired by a Ferrari enthusiast in 1972, the car has not been started, driven or registered since 1982 and has spent the past 33 years carefully stored away from the elements. Finished in Bleu Chiaro with a black leather interior, the car is expected to sell for $3.4-3.8m.
"After 43 years in the care of one owner, Gooding & Company is proud to present this wonderful 275 GTB/4 at auction on behalf of the family that has so lovingly treasured and cared for it," said David Gooding, company President and Founder. "A Ferrari of this kind is what every collector dreams of finding and will never tire of its extraordinary quality and transcendent style."
Next up is a 1961 Ferrari 250 GT Series II Cabriolet, white with a red interior and a factory hard top with the highly rare built-in sunroof.
Having received Ferrari Factory Certification of Authenticity in 2012, the car has won awards at events including the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance and the Palm Beach Cavallino Classic Concours. Now the car will be offered for sale with an estimated value of $2-2.5m.
Further notable Ferraris will include a 1967 Ferrari 330 GTC, one of less than 600 models ever built, estimated at $900,000-1.1m; and a 1974 Ferrari Dino 246 GTS, one of the final 20 models built, estimated at $500,000-600,000.
The sale takes place at the Omni Amelia Island Plantation on Friday March 13.
