Techno Classica

The Techno Classica in Essen – still – is Europe's largest and leading Classic Car & Trade Fair. While the Mercedes-Benz stand grows from year to year it seems that the number of club displays is shrinking. We missed the Ferrari Club Deutschland and the "Deutscher Maserati Club".

Anyway it is always very impressive to see at least 50 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL in all (colour) variations, and the demand for these cars is still high. But it was also amazing, that no dealer was able to offer i.e. only one BMW 507 Roadster, not to mention a Ferrari in the class of a 250 GT California Spyder. The most interesting Ferrari this year, a 275 GTB/6C alloy Berlinetta s/n 08033, was offered by premium dealer Axel Schuette and already sold on Thursday afternoon !

Our favorite was a nice early Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona "plexi" Berlinetta offered for €245.000, which will not be around very long.

Ferrari 275 GTB Mercato Special
50% price increase in just 1 year - Ferrari 275 GTB & GTB/4 prices are booming and booming!
EUR. 600,000.- bought you a rare, original and matching no. Ferrari 275 GTB/6C “long nose” alloy in January, 2007 in an attractive colour combination. And now you could have easily sold it for EUR. 900,000.- ! Compare this increase to the current interest rates of your local banking house and you will not only recognize that you can not drive your savings through town but that you should change your financial strategy.

The current market price for a „normal“ Ferrari 275 GTB/4 is even higher. Good examples sell for EUR. 950,000.- to EUR. 1,0mio and if the car can claim some race history, collector’s are even willing to spend 100 grands more, not to forget that German collector who recently spent EUR. 1,375mio for a restoration project with race history…

A dark blue one is offered in the RM Leggenda e Passione Auction in Maranello
