Paris, France, 3rd February 2022
The Petitjean Collection’s second-highest sale was the 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 by Scaglietti; the first
production GTB/4 produced and Paris Salon show car, this remarkably original car brought €2,367,500. One
of the most desirable of all the great V12 250s, the 1964 Ferrari 250 GT/L Berlinetta Lusso by Scaglietti,
another great survivor in wonderfully original condition, sold for €1,186,250. Presented in the factory-correct
colour combination of Argento over Rosso leather interior, the matching-numbers example had been in The
Petitjean Collection for over 35 years. The Petitjean Collection ‘Part II’, in its entirety, was an outstanding
success, with all lots producing exceptional results and many exceeding their pre-sale estimates.

Outside of The Petitjean Collection, a number of significant results were achieved. The Ferrari
Classiche-certified 1996 Ferrari F50 was the second-highest selling lot of the sale. Boasting just 12,722 km
on its odometer, the example on offer sold for €3,436,250. Proving that Ferraris aren’t the only supercars
attracting collectors, the 1994 Bugatti EB110 GT was another record-breaking result for the model. Believed
to be one of only 84 models built to “GT” specification, this example, which features low mileage and is fully
serviced, achieved €1,805,000.
Rounding out the top 10 results was a 1958 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster, which sold for €916,250,
and the 1954 Fiat 8V Coupé, one of just 114 8Vs built and one of only 29 second-series cars built in-house
by Fiat, which brought a deserved €905,000.
