    1961 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta. Estimate $8,500,000–10,000,000.
    The Ferrari Performance Collection spans a half-century of "Prancing Horse" sports car prowess and is headlined by a one-of-165, numbers matching, Ferrari Classiche-certified 1961 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta. A Cavallino Classic Platinum award winner and two-time veteran of the Colorado Grand, the 250 GT “Short-Wheelbase” was owned for four decades and restored by Charles Betz and Fred Peters, two of the country’s most respected Ferrari collectors, before changing hands to its current owner.

    1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4. Estimate $2,750,000–3,250,000.
    Just as beautiful as its predecessor, the GTB/4 added two more cams to its Colombo V-12, creating the first dual overhead-cam engine ever put in a Ferrari road car. This example is Ferrari Classiche certified, comes with a complete set of books and tools and recently underwent a cosmetic freshening.

    1991 Ferrari F40. Estimate $1,300,000–1,500,000 (Offered without reserve).
    Not only did the F40 celebrate 40 years since Enzo built his first car, but “The Grand Old Man” also called it “the best Ferrari ever” when his company constructed it in 1987. Beautifully maintained and highly original, this F40 is one of 213 built to U.S. specification. It comes with its original Schedoni fitted luggage and has accumulated only 2,802 miles. 

  • Theodore W. Pieper ©2017 Courte
    2011 Ferrari 599 GTO. Estimate $700,000–800,000 (Offered without reserve).
    When it was unveiled in 2010, Ferrari claimed the 599 GTO was the fastest Ferrari ever produced – even faster than the Enzo! Motivated by a 661-bhp V-12, this GTO is one of 125 specified for the United States and has driven less than 520 miles. 

  • Theodore W. Pieper ©2017 Courte
    1969 Ferrari Dino 206 GT. Estimate $650,000–750,000.
    With a total production run of just 154 cars, this 206 GT represents one of the most limited and sought-after Dinos ever produced. It includes all original manuals, warranty booklet and rare parts catalogue. 

  • Theodore W. Pieper ©2017 Courte
    1984 Ferrari 512 BBi. Estimate $275,000–325,000 (Offered without reserve).
    A winner of numerous Ferrari Club of America awards, this red-on-black 512 BBi is one of the last of the “Berlinetta Boxer” series Ferraris. Only 1,007 units of this 4.9-liter flat-12–powered car were built over three years – and this one has accumulated just 911 miles. 

  • Theodore W. Pieper ©2017 Courte
    2005 Ferrari 575 Superamerica. Estimate $375,000–450,000 (Offered without reserve).
    Marketed as the world’s fastest convertible at the time of its introduction, the Superamerica brought topless motoring to the Ferrari 575M. It also introduced a 180-degree rotating roof that lays flush with the boot when open. Ferrari reportedly built a total of 559 Superamericas, and this recent example with less than 1,750 miles is optioned with the highly desirable Fiorano Handling Package. 

  • Theodore W. Pieper ©2017 Courte
    2009 Ferrari 16M Scuderia Spider. Estimate $350,000–400,000 (Offered without reserve).
    With a limited run of just 499 units, all of which were pre-sold to select Ferrari clientele, the Ferrari 16M Scuderia Spider was Ferrari’s way of celebrating its 16th Formula 1 Constructor’s World Championship title and is the most collectable model of the 430 series. This regularly detailed and maintained example has had just three dedicated owners and accumulated only 2,525 miles. 

  • Theodore W. Pieper ©2017 Courte
    1983 Ferrari 512 BBi. Estimate $375,000–450,000 (Offered without reserve).
    Built at the tail end of the wedge era, this Ferrari Classiche-certified “Berlinetta Boxer” has just over 20,000 miles under its belt and would be the perfect way to make an entrance at any Ferrari Club of America event. 

  • Theodore W. Pieper ©2017 Courte
    2004 Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale. Estimate $275,000–325,000 (Offered without reserve).
    A track car for the street, the 360 Modena-based Challenge Stradale used the 360 Modena Challenge competition car as inspiration in gaining its circuit-lapping prowess. This example –one of approximately 378 built for the United States – was formerly owned by Roger Rodas, wears an Italian tricolour stripe and has only 3,487 original miles. 

  • Theodore W. Pieper ©2017 Courte
    2009 Ferrari 430 Scuderia. Estimate $250,000–300,000 (Offered without reserve).
    Lighter and more powerful than the F430 on which it is based, the 430 Scuderia is a lightning-fast successor to the 360 Challenge Stradale. This fastidiously maintained and minimally used example is impeccable with just 3,716 miles accumulated and comes with its original window sticker and service invoices. 

  • Theodore W. Pieper ©2017 Courte
    1976 Ferrari 308 GTB ‘Vetroresina.’ Estimate $175,000–225,000 (Offered without reserve).
    After receiving a full service earlier this year, this 308 GTB with just over 12,000 miles is one of the best examples of the breed and is ideal for the budding Ferrari collector. The first of 100 units imported to the United States, it recently underwent a major engine service and includes manuals and tool kit. 

  • Theodore W. Pieper ©2017 Courte
    1989 Ferrari 328 GTS. Estimate $90,000–120,000 (Offered without reserve).
    For those craving the sound of an Italian V-8 without a roof hindering its aural pleasures, this extremely original and Ferrari Classiche-certified 328 GTS is immaculate. Offered with original manuals and tool kit, this example wears its 8,520 miles well.
