The history of the 250 GTE 2+2 is arguably one of the richest in Ferrari's extensive history. This car was designed specifically to appeal to the sector of the car market which was largely dominated by brands such as Aston Martin & Maserati throughout the late 50's and early 60's. The 250 GTE saw its debut at the 1960 Le Mans 24-Hour race where it served, in prototype form, as the race director's car and saw it's official unveiling at the Paris Salon later that same year. Of course there had been four seater Ferraris before the 250 GTE, the Ghia, Touring and Vignale all boasted four seats as early as the 50's; however the fact that they were based on a chassis that wasn't conceived with passenger carrying in mind meant that they were somewhat compromised. The car makes use of independent front suspension, a live rear axle and a four speed manual/overdrive gearbox to complete the basic chassis specification. These were coupled with a compact Colombo designed Tipo 128E V12 engine producing 240bhp toensure that the larger car did not suffer from any undue decreases in performance. This particular vehicle was first delivered to France in 1962, from here the car spent an extensive amount of time on Cote d'Azur before being sent to Italy for restoration. The car benefitted from refinished upholstery, paint, chrome and new carpets; changing from the original Azzuro to the rare and highly desirable Nero and Crema colour combination. The car was also recently awarded Classiche Certification from the Ferrari Factory, certifying its originality and quality. Don't miss your chance to become an owner of one of the last truly undervalued classic Ferraris!

  • Auction: 17th/18th Jan 2019 - RM Sotheby's - Arizona Auction

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION at RM Sothebys' Arizona event, 17 - 18 January 2019. Estimate:$11,000,000 - $13,000,000 One-off custom, built exclusively for Lilian, Princess of Réthy, the royal lady of BelgiumRetains its matching-numbers engine and gearboxDisplayed at the Ferrari 50th Anniversary meet, Cavallino Classic, and Pebble Beach Concours dEleganceComprehensive restoration completed in 1997Current long-term 20-year ownershipExquisite example of a unique coachbuilt Ferrari prepared for royalty BUILT FOR ROYALTYDespite the fact that Ferrari utilized numerous carrozzerias during its first decade of production, early Maranello bodywork was usually determined by the factory rather than by the pre-war practice of selling rolling chassis to customers who then handpicked their preferred coachbuilder, a la Rolls-Royce and Bugatti. But certain preferred clients still retained input into their Ferraris final appearance, and accordingly some very special one-offs were built during this period for customerson the par of the Aga Khan and Gianni Agnelli.One such client was the Princess Lilian de Réthy, a Belgian commoner who became entwined in the house of Saxe-Colburg and Gotha, the countrys royal family. Princess Lilian was born as Marie-Lilien Baels, the daughter of a prominent lawyer and industrialist, and in 1939 she was hired as a governess to the three children of King Leopold III, who was a widower following the Queens untimely death in 1935.In what must have been a fairy-tale romance shadowed by the clouds of war, Miss Baels became a personal favorite of the King, but the familys life was soon thrown into upheaval by the onset of World War II. Leopold was head of the Belgian armed forces and was forced to capitulate in the face of the German blitzkrieg (holding out long enough, however, to contribute to the now legendary salvation of the British forces stranded at Dunkirk). In 1941, while the royal family remained prisoners in their homeland, the King married Miss Baels in a private religiousceremony, and she was titled the Princess Lilian de Réthy (the title of queen was not permitted under the circumstances of her non-royal lineage).Upon the resumption of civilian life after the war, King Leopold once again began to indulge his love for sports and luxury cars, and in 1953 he acquired a Pinin Farina-bodied Ferrari 342 America (chassis no. 0234 AL), which the princess undoubtedly drove, as well. The royal couples importance as preferred Maranello customers increased over the years, taking a big step with the Kings 1955 purchase of chassis no. 0488 AM, the last of eight 375 Plus examples built, and the only one finished as a road car with Pinin Farina cabriolet coachwork.From the admiration later expressed in his book My Great Joys, it was clear that Enzo Ferrari held King Leopold in high esteem: He seemed to me to be a man who would have made a good engineer, a man gifted in technique and who bitterly regretted not ever having been able to follow his inclination. . . . At the wheel, Ifound him courageous and able to confront danger with resolution and skill.The relationship between Il Commendatore and Princess de Réthy was truly sealed, however, during the 1955 racing season, when Pirelli unceremoniously announced that it would no longer provide tires to Ferrari. As Ferraris racing budget was not funneled from road car sales, but rather depended on materials from sponsoring suppliers, the withdrawal of the tire company in mid-season was nothing short of disastrous. To Enzo Ferraris great fortune, he happened to mention the scenario to Princess Lilian and she quickly made an inquiry with the Belgian tire company Englebert, which began sending fresh rubber to Maranello that very night. The relationship proved to be quite fruitful, as Englebert tires eventually came to be mounted on a great many of the eras important competition Ferraris.Given the Princesss facilitation of a fresh tire supplier for the Scuderia, it was only appropriate that upon ordering a Ferrari coupe in early1957 she was afforded something truly unique. The series coachbuild of Ferrari 250 GT coupes was at that time contracted to Carrozzeria Boano, so it was a singular choice to dispatch her car to Pinin Farina for one-off coupe coachwork, but the royal couple clearly had a predilection for the designers work.THE PRINCESS SPECIALE Chassis no. 0751 GT was the second of three Ferrari Speciales that the Princess eventually acquired. In early September the type 508 C chassis arrived at Pinin Farinas workshop, and the coachbuilder soon crafted a distinctive body that employed elements of concurrent Ferrari designs while presaging the forthcoming series-built Pinin Farina coupe. The Speciales long nose featured covered headlamps like the 250 GT Tour de France racing berlinettas of the time, while the front fenders were notable for large chromed and louvered vents, reminiscent of those found on the California Spider. Further, bumperettes, nose, and hood scoop treatments borrowed touches from the recentlyreleased Series I cabriolets. The coupes overall proportions and stance, particularly the rear glass and fender treatment, would soon be integrated on the series-based 250 GT Pinin Farina coupes that went into production by the years end.Finished in Grigio Fumo Max Meyer and trimmed with naturale Connolly Vaumol leather, the one-off coupe was delivered to the Princess de Réthy at her Waterloo home in January 1958, and registered with Belgian diplomatic tags. Nearly 10 years later the Princess ordered a third coachbuilt Ferrari based on a 330 GTC, and in consequence she sought to bequeath the 250 GT Speciale to a worthy successor. As part of her charitable work around the country Princess de Réthy sponsored a cardio-vascular specialty hospital, and on one particular visit to the establishment she met a visiting American surgeon named Michael De Bakey. Dr. De Bakeys brother Ernest (another doctor who received much more attention a decade later for performing surgery on the Shah of Iran) happened tobe visiting as well, and when it became known that all three were Ferrari enthusiasts, the Princess insisted that Dr. Ernest De Bakey accept the 250 GT Coupe Speciale from her as a gift.Despite Dr. De Bakeys attempt to politely refuse the gift, he found a bill of lading waiting for him upon return to his home in Mobile, Alabama, and by the end of 1967 the Ferrari was unloaded at port in New Orleans from the freighter Witmarsum, as depicted by a period photograph. In 1968, the doctor sold the 250 GT to Dr. John Ochsner, the founder of an eponymous clinic in New Orleans, and he modified the wheels to 15-in. units, and installed disc brakes.In 1970, the Pinin Farina coupe was acquired by the well-known dealer and collector Kirk White of Philadelphia, and by the end of the year he sold the car to John Delamater of Indianapolis. Briefly passing to Ken Hutchinson of Tower Lake, Illinois, the Speciale was re-acquired by Delamater, who then began a restoration in conjunction with Alan Powell of Mishawaka,Indiana.In July 1973, the Ferrari was sold to Norman Silver, the owner of Silver Craft Furniture, at which point the body remained unpainted and the engine required some work. Shortly thereafter, Silver sold it to Powell in January 1974, and he in turn sold it three years later to John Wilson Clinard of Farmington Hills, Michigan.Mr. Clinards ensuing seven years of ownership marked an upturn in the cars fortunes. An executive for the Ford Motor Company, Clinard initially undertook a cosmetic freshening, repainting the exterior in rosso and re-trimming the interior with beige leather. He also retained the esteemed marque expert John Hajduk to rebuild the engine as needed. The owner was a fixture in the Ferraris documentation, as well, eventually connecting with owners past and future to help establish a written record of the cars ownership history.In 1984, Clinard sold the 250 GT to John Carmack of Carmel, Indiana, who retained possession through the end of the decade. Passing to the respected NewYork-based Ferrari collector Anthony Wang in 1991, the Speciale was purchased five years later by Gregory Noblet, son of the better-known French racing driver Pierre Noblet. Noblet sold the Ferrari in 1997 to the esteemed Philippe Lancksweert, a former partner of Jacques Swaters at the Garage Francorchamps in Belgium, and he commissioned Bachelli & Villa of Bastiglia to conduct a full cosmetic restoration, including a high-quality refinish in grigio metallizzato (metallic grey) paint, and re-appointment of the interior in beige leather. Autofficina SAURO in Bologna was retained to perform much of the mechanical refurbishment. Following completion of this work, the Speciale was presented at the Ferrari 50th Anniversary meet at Rome and Maranello in May 1997.By the end of 1997 Mr. Lancksweert sold the 250 GT to dealer and enthusiast Todd Morici of Clifton, New Jersey. After displaying the Ferrari at the Cavallino Classic in January 1998, Morici sold the car to the current owner, where it continued tobe domiciled in the U.S., even being presented in the Pininfarina class at the 2001 Pebble Beach Concours dElegance. Now offered for the first time in 20 years, this phenomenal 250 GT Coupe Speciale offers extreme rarity and the illustrious provenance of ownership by royalty. As such a unique and significant one-off, the car has been featured in numerous factory journals and enthusiast books, including Angelo Tito Anselmis Le Ferrari di Pininfarina, Stanley Nowaks Ferrari Forty Years on the Road, Antoine Prunets Ferrari Legend - the Road Cars, Gianni Rogliattis Ferrari Ecurie Garage Francorchamps, Keith Bluemels Ferrari The Road Cars, and individual issues of Forza and Prancing Horse magazines.Accompanied by a tool kit and documented with period photos, former owners correspondence, restoration invoices and photographs, and various articles from the media, this unique Coupe Speciale offers a premium level of coachbuilt elegance on the 250 GT platform. It is eligible for near all events worldwide,and would make a superlative acquisition for any Ferrari enthusiast. The legend and brand of Ferrari was initially built in the 1950s on both its racing success and the sale of its special road cars to royalty and the business titans of the era. This is a truly unique opportunity to acquire one of the most significant road cars of the 1950s and it is sure to draw attention at marque events and major concours delegance for its important one-of-a-kind royal coachwork.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/az19.

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION at RM Sothebys' Paris event, 6 February 2019. Just two owners and 65,928 km from new; single-family ownership for over 50 yearsRetains its original engine and rear axleThe 50th example of just 200 built Intended for a different customer and style of driving than Ferraris other open-top offering, the 250 GT California Spider, the 250 GT Cabriolet was a true gentlemans Ferrari designed for high-speed touring in comfort. With the performance one would expect from Maranellos finest, the cabriolet gave no concessions to luxury and was exquisitely trimmed and appointed to please Ferraris demanding clientele. With a spacious boot that could hold more than enough luggage for two for a long-weekend trip, this was the ideal touring car for the California coast or the South of France.The cabriolet offered here, chassis no. 1983 GT, is a superbly presented Series II example, the 50th of 200 cars built. According to Ferrari historian Marcel Massini, the chassis was delivered fromFerrari to the Carrozzeria Pinin Farina plant in Torino on 11 May 1960 and was completed exactly four months later. It was originally finished in Grigio Conchiglia (MM 16249) with a Beige vinyl and leather interior (VM 3218) and was delivered new to Ferraris official importer Franco-Britannic Autos Ltd., in Paris, France.Chassis no. 1983 GT was sold to its first owner, Raymond Veuillez, also of Paris, and registered 1042 KF 75. Interestingly, when the prefecture recorded the registration to Mr Veuillez, they transposed the last two numbers of the chassis number, recording it as 1938 GT. A simple error, as Ferraris early racing cars had even-numbered chassis numbers, while the road cars received odd numbers. In 1965, the car was sent back to Ferrari for servicing and was refinished in dark blue with black leather interior at that time. Mr Veuillez owned the car until 4 November 1967 when it was sold to the second owner in Toulouse, France. It was registered there under plate 9237 QP 31. The car hasremained with that owners family since 1967, making this a highly uncommon opportunity to own such a magnificent machine with known history, including time spent in long-term single-family ownership. After many years of service, the car was mechanically restored approximately 20 years ago. Having covered approximately 10,000 km since the work was completed, the odometer now reads 65,928 km from new. The car was repainted several years ago in its original shade of Grigio Conchiglia, though it still wears the black leather interior which was fitted by Ferrari in 1965. It presents beautifully with an exceptionally attractive patination and signs of use consistent with a well-loved automobile of this vintage. Overall, this is a truly beautiful machine with the exceptional performance one comes to expect from a 250 GT. Ready for its third owner within its nearly 60-year history, it will make a fine centrepiece to any Ferrari collection and would be an exceptional companion for any driving tour orshow.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/pa19.

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION at RM Sothebys' Paris event, 6 February 2019. The 309th example of just 353 madeDesirable second series example with disc brakes and Tipo 128F outside-plug engineInteresting ownership history in Europe and the U.S.Subject of concours-winning restoration For many enthusiasts, the drivers choice of Ferraris 250 GT Coupés are the later, second-series examples for 1960 and onwards. These boast major improvements, including revised shock absorbers, better sound insulation and all-round disc brakes and the new outside-plug Tipo 128F engine, which developed 240 bhp. This example, chassis no. 1831 GT, was built in February 1960 featuring a Blu Sera body with vinyl and hide interior in Pelle Naturale. It was delivered via a dealer in Rome to its first owner, Filippo Palma of Civitavecchia. It remained in Italy for the next 10 years when U.S. Army helicopter pilot Lee Chambers purchased the car to enjoy while stationed in Germany. It was shipped back to his home in Oregon in March1971 before being sold to a dentist in Lake Oswego, Oregon. Photographs exist showing the car in both Germany and Oregon under Chambers ownership. The car passed through Ron Tonkin Gran Turismo before being purchased in 1973 by the Edgar family. At that time, the Ferrari needed a full restoration and was repainted in Rosso Chiaro while the leather interior was dyed black in 1993. In 1997, it was imported to the UK in exchange for a BTCC touring car by Scottish racing driver Hamish Irvine. He sold it to a Mr McLeod of Glasgow who drove the car sparingly. With the odometer reading just 31,628 km, it was acquired by the current owner in 2013, who sent it to marque specialist Foskers of Kent to be refinished in metallic blue over a tan interior. They found it to be a highly original and rust-free example, still showing factory welds in the bodywork. Also, it is important to note that the cylinder head is of a later type.The quality of work was proven with a Best in Class win at The Hurlingham Clubconcours, London, and other awards and has been shown at several Ferrari Owners Club events, and even Salon Privé. Accompanied by an original owners manual, sales brochure and a history file which chronicles its restoration, it would continue to be a lovely show candidate or stately driver.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/pa19.

1959 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spider by Scaglietti Chassis no. 1503 GTEngine no. 1503 GTGearbox no. 260 D A genuine, numbers-matching example of extraordinary quality Single ownership for nearly two decades; seldom shown Featured in Cavallino #53 and in Stanley Nowak's Ferrari Spyder California Well documented, with original tool kit Ferrari Classiche certified The chassis for 1503 GT, the 35th of 50 LWB California Spiders, was supplied to Scaglietti on 7 July 1959, and the car's assembly completed in early October. It was delivered the following month to official importer Carlos Kauffmann of Caracas, Venezuela, in an era when that country's oil fortune was making its upper crust extraordinarily wealthy, and supplying Mr Kauffmann with numerous customers for bespoke coachbuilt Ferraris. In Dr Otto Rodriguez Vincentini, a young socialite active in the high society party scene of the late 1950s, Kauffmann found an ideal buyer for the California Spider. With factory covered headlamps, nosidemarker lights and its Nardi steering wheel, glistening in Bianco over Nero, it fairly dripped aggressive power. One can imagine the figure that it cut, cruising through the streets of Caracas as its owner visited all of the most happening nightspots. However, it was on one of those evenings, and one of those darkened streets, that young men fled, leaving behind the idling California Spider, with the late owner - a victim of robbery - behind the wheel. The car returned to Carlos Kauffmann, was repaired and reconditioned, and in 1963 was sold from Venezuela to Arthur Dennis Stevens of Evanston, Illinois. At the time it was imported into the U.S., the car had reportedly only covered 7,500 km. Stevens opted to drive the California Spider periodically between Evanston and Chicago for a few years before it was stored for two decades in suburban Chicago. Then, in 1985, it was sold to well-known Ferrari collector Richard Freshman of Malibu, California, then showing around 31,000 km. Two furthershort-termowners followed before the car was acquired by L. Jack Ruscilli of Columbus, Ohio, in 1987. Mr Ruscilli commissioned a full restoration of the California Spider by the late Wayne Obry of Motion Products in Neenah, Wisconsin. As part of this work, the car was carefully brought back to its original delivery configuration, with the exception only to a change of colours, to Rosso over tan leather. The restored car toured the United States for several years, winning virtually every possible award, including Best in Class at both the Meadow Brook and Pebble Beach Concours in 1988, and Best of Show at the FCA National Concours in 1989. It was pictured in Stanley Nowak's Ferrari Spyder California in 1990, and in issue number 53 of Cavallino, as part of a prominent feature story, `California on Tour'. In total this car collected more than 35 concours awards between 1988 and 1992, attesting to the incredible quality of the original Motion Products restoration, which helped raise the bar for allFerrarirestorations since that time. The previous owner acquired the car in 1998, and since then it has been properly stored in his private collection and very seldom shown; indeed, its only appearance was at the XII Palm Beach Cavallino Classic in January 2003, where it won a Platinum award. Its odometer shows 32,586 kilometres, only about 700 more than when Mr Ruscilli acquired the car in 1987! This respected, beautiful and superb California Spider, with a fascinating known history, represents one of the most desirable examples of the ultimate open Ferrari of its era.
