London, 27th January, 2021
RM Sotheby’s is delighted to present four outstanding sports
cars from Maranello’s illustrious history at its upcoming Paris
auction. The consignments join a growing selection of
automotive exotica already set to be sold at RM Sotheby’s
annual season-opening European auction, which will take the
form of a livestreamed sale with no in-person attendance on 13
February. Remote bidding options for the auction include via
telephone, internet, or absentee bids.
The car sports a number of optional extras, including a carbon fibre steering wheel, yellow tachometer and
Challenge style wheels. Representing the very best in 21st century coachbuilding, this rare and highly
glamorous sports car would make a bold addition to any car collection (Est. €1,400,000 - €1,600,000).
Joining the TdF is a rare example of the F12’s forebearer. The 2009 Ferrari 599 GTZ Nibbio Spyder is one
of just six GTZ Nibbio Spyder’s built by famed coachbuilder, Zagato. Completed in January 2020, the car
represents a long but seldom frequent relationship between Ferrari and Zagato. The design house has
transformed only a handful of Ferrari models over the last eight decades, with many commissioned by
Ferrari customers. The 599 GTZ Nibbio conversion was offered for public sale by Zagato following a private
commission and customers were able to choose from either coupe or spyder coachwork. Each 599 GTZ
Nibbio Spyder sports a unique specification, with the consigned car tastefully finished in gunmetal grey with
black leather interior.
After a period on display at the Museo Enzo Ferrari in Modena, Marchionne was approached by Piero Ferrari,
who was looking to auction an F12tdf on behalf of Associazione Centro Dino Ferrari, a charity founded by
Enzo Ferrari himself. The F12tdf was designated for this purpose and fitted with a plaque to mark the 120th
anniversary of Enzo Ferrari’s birth. It was also signed by Piero Ferrari. The car was purchased at the
charitable auction in October 2018 by the current consignor and is unquestionably the most significant Ferrari
F12tdf in existence. The car has covered just 6,800 km from new and comes with its Classiche-issued
‘Attestato per Vetture Serie speciali’ yellow binder (Est. €600,000 - €700,000).

The Paris sale will also welcome a beautiful 1960s Pininfarina-designed Ferrari. Arguably one of the most
famous model designations in motoring, the 1963 Ferrari 250 GTE 2+2 Series III by Pininfarina is the
epitome of style, luxury, and speed. The 735th 250 GTE built, this exquisite, matching-numbers engined
example is finished in its original combination of Grigio Argento over exceptionally preserved Nero interior and
is revered as being a desirable third-series example (Est. €335,000 - €385,000).
