1958 Ferrari 250 GT Series I Cabriolet s/n 0789GT Estimate: $7,000,000 – $8,000,000
The elegant Series I Cabriolet was the most exclusive and expensive Ferrari road car of its era. One of only 40
Series I Cabs built, chassis 0789GT is one of just four equipped with the most desirable combination of
coachwork details – covered headlights, side vents, and bumperettes. Like all Series I Cabriolets, 0789 GT
was handbuilt by Pinin Farina’s custom workshop, where it was finished to the highest standards for one of
Ferrari’s VIP clients, the eccentric aristocrat, playboy, and actor, Prince Alessandro “Dado” Ruspoli of Rome.
Ruspoli was the ideal buyer for such a Ferrari, both in terms of his social status and glamorous image. Dado
was known as a notorious socialite, the inspiration behind Fellini’s film “La Dolce Vita,” and was often seen
driving his exotic sports cars with such iconic figures as Salvador Dalí, Brigitte Bardot, Truman Capote, and
Pablo Picasso. Prince Ruspoli eventually sold the Series I to continue paying for his lavish lifestyle, and the
car remained in the care of devoted Italian enthusiasts throughout the 1970s and ’80s.
This Series I Cabriolet then came to the US and was owned by Ron Hein, a notable restorer and collector
whose cars have won multiple awards. Hein’s restoration of 0789 GT was extremely well received, with the car
taking First in Class at the 1994 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance®, the 1994 Santa Barbara Concours
d’Elegance®, and the 1994 Newport Beach Concours d’Elegance®. Additionally, it won Best of Show at the
1996 FCA Vintage Concours in Carmel Valley, and the Outstanding GT award at both the 1995 and 1997
Rodeo Drive Concours in Beverly Hills. Never before offered at auction, this exceptional car has a fantastic
provenance, with a connection to one of the most famous playboys of the jet set era. Beautifully finished in
black over a stunning green interior, and coming from one of the finest collections of coachbuilt Ferraris, this
ideally specified Series I Cabriolet will be an unmatched addition to any distinguished collection.
1953 Alfa Romeo 6C 3000 CM Superflow IV s/n 00128 Estimate: $6,000,000 – $8,000,000
The Alfa Romeo, chassis 00128, is one of approximately six competition cars built before the company
suspended its factory-backed racing activities in the mid-1950s. One of the most technically advanced racing
cars of its era, the 6C 3000 CM was built with a tubular spaceframe chassis, with independent front
suspension, a De Dion rear axle, and inboard rear brakes. It also featured a magnificent 3.5-liter straight-six
engine, with six individual Weber carburetors, twin overhead camshafts, and dry sump lubrication, producing
270 bhp. Following the 1954 racing season, this 6C 3000 CM was given to Carrozzeria Pinin Farina, who used
the advanced chassis to build a series of experimental show cars. The first version of the Alfa Romeo
Superflow was unveiled at the 1956 Paris Auto Show and then underwent several revisions before being
finished in its final Superflow IV form. A hugely influential design study, the Superflow series previewed design
cues that would later appear on many Pininfarina-bodied production cars, such as the Alfa Romeo Duetto.
The Superflow IV was shown at the 1960 Geneva Motor Show and sold to an Alfa Romeo dealer in Colorado.
After many years in the hands of American collectors, 00128 joined Peter’s Kaus’ Rosso Bianco Museum in
Germany, which, at the time, housed the largest sports car collection in the world with over 200 vehicles.
Kaus sold off his collection in 2005, and this Alfa Romeo was acquired by a preeminent collector who
meticulously restored it before its showing at the 2013 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance®. The Superflow
won First in Class, as well as The Vitesse – Elegance Trophy at Pebble Beach that year. It went on to show
at the 2014 Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este in Italy and Salon Prive, where it received Best of Show honors.
This masterpiece is now returning to Pebble Beach to cross the auction block and promises to be a
1962 Ferrari 400 Superamerica Series I Coupe Aerodinamico s/n 3361SA Estimate: $2,800,000 –
The limited-production 400 Superamerica series is widely regarded as the ultimate coachbuilt Ferrari of the
early 1960s. This car, chassis 3361 SA, was one of the last short-wheelbase Coupes, whose aerodynamic
design was inspired by the famous Superfast II show car. Upon completion, this Superamerica was displayed
with two other Pininfarina-bodied Ferraris at the 1962 Geneva Motor Show. Chassis 3361SA was then sold
new to a loyal Ferrari client in Milan, and remained in the hands of Italian collectors through 2016. Recently,
this largely unrestored car was exhibited at the 2019 Palm Beach Cavallino Classic, where it won the coveted
Preservation Award. Certified by the Ferrari Classiche department and handsomely presented in its Blu Notte
livery with original natural-colored leather, this 400 Superamerica Series I Coupe Aerodinamico is among the
finest models of this rare breed.
2014 Ferrari Sergio by Pininfarina Estimate: $2,500,000 – $3,000,000
This 2014 Ferrari Sergio is an opportunity to purchase one of the most dynamic and exclusive cars the
Prancing Horse has to offer. Commemorating the 60th anniversary of Sergio Pininfarina’s first collaboration
with the marque, Ferrari produced a mere six Sergio examples. The design and build focused entirely on
performance, equipped with a Ferrari 458 Spider V-8 engine that sprints from 0 to 60 in just 3 seconds. This
Ferrari Sergio was delivered new to the United States and has only seen one owner since new. Ordered in
Argento Nürburgring and Daytona Red livery on a ‘crema’ interior, the Ferrari Sergio is a perfect marriage of
both Pininfarina’s 21st century design and engineering, and Ferrari’s storied relationship with the company.
This stellar supercar will make a seamless addition to any Ferrari purist’s collection and would perfectly fit
beside its Pininfarina’s masterpieces.
