London, 19 January, 2010

RM Auctions, the world’s largest collector car auction house, is delighted to announce the consignment of a single-owner collection of five significant Ferraris to its Sporting Classics of Monaco sale, taking place on 1st May, 2010.

“RM has quickly established itself as Europe’s leading seller of vintage Ferraris at auction,” says Max Girardo, Managing Director of RM Europe. “We are truly pleased to be offering this fabulous collection of significant Ferraris at our forthcoming sale in Monaco.”

The feature car of the collection is regarded as one of the finest examples of the hugely desirable 250 GT ‘Tour de France’ models. Finished in dark red, this long-wheel base
1958 Ferrari 250 GT Tour de France s/n 0925GT was supplied new to the famous collector William Harrah through Otto Zipper Motors, Ferrari’s official representative in Hollywood, California. It features beautiful, all-alloy Scaglietti-designed bodywork and only 17,500 original kilometres. Many consider 0925GT to be the best and most original 250 GT Tour de France example in existence, in part thanks to its long residence in the Harrah Collection. The car changed hands in 1986 after Mr. Harrah’s death, and has since participated in several Mille Miglia retrospectives and various other rallies in the 1990s, including the Tour de France Auto. (Estimate: €2,000,000 – €2,500,000)

Another highlight of the collection is a rare
1952 Ferrari 225 Sport Vignale Berlinetta s/n 0170ET, one of only two lightweight ‘Tuboscocca’ competition Berlinetta’s produced. 0170ET was supplied new in 1952 to Dr. Augusto Caraceni in Rome who campaigned it in the Mille Miglia that same year alongside Franco Meloni. The car boasts a strong period and contemporary competition history and has been shown at several concours events over the years. (Estimate: €600,000 - €800,000)

One of the most iconic Ferrari’s of the 1970’s was the 365 GTS/4 Daytona and amongst this collection is a rare
1971 Ferrari 365 GTS/4 Daytona Spyder example (s/n 14553) sold new in the USA. This car has since been the subject of a concours-quality restoration by a leading marque specialist and is officially certified by the factory. It also participated in the 2008 Daytona 40th anniversary celebrations in Maranello. (Estimate: €600,000 - €800,000)

Rounding out the collection is a
1954 Ferrari 250 Europa Pinin Farina Coupe s/n 0349EU, which is significant to collectors as the Paris show car (Estimate: €450,000 - €700,000) ; and, a long-nose 1965 Ferrari 275 GTB s/n 7933, which was supplied new to an American owner by Chinetti Motors (Estimate: €700,000 - €900,000).

This single-owner collection of Ferraris joins the recently-announced Zach Collection of 26 Rolls-Royce motor cars on the starting grid of RM’s inaugural Sporting Classics of Monaco event at the Grimaldi Forum on 1st May, 2010 - the same weekend as the 7th Grand Prix Historique de Monaco. The single-day event is set to present 80 of the world’s finest motor cars to an elite assemblage of automotive enthusiasts and collectors from around the world.
