MONACO, 16th May, 2022

RM Sotheby’s stormed back to Monaco for another successful sale alongside the Grand Prix Historique. Conducting a single-day sale, RM Sotheby’s 2022 Monaco tally exceeded €30 million with an 82% sell-through rate and continued a record-breaking season for the world’s leading collector car auction house.

You could feel the energy in the packed room as all eyes fell on the pair of stunning Formula One cars offered from the private collection of former World Champion Nigel Mansell. It is an incredibly rare opportunity to acquire two completely original Formula One cars directly from their World Champion owner and driver and, as expected, both machines found delighted new owners. Selling for €1 million over the high estimate, the iconic ‘Senna Taxi’ 1991 Williams FW14 was the undoubted star of the show with a final sale price of €4,055,000 after a heated bidding battle. Equally as stunning and historic, Nigel Mansell’s 1989 Ferrari 640 crossed the block at €3,605,000. The success the Mansell Formula cars achieved is testament to their historical significance. After the excitement, Nigel Mansell said “I am delighted with all the work that RM Sotheby’s did to bring my beloved cars to market. Deciding to sell them after all these years was a huge decision, but I wouldn’t have entrusted them to any other auction house other than RM Sotheby’s.”

Not to be outdone by the Formula machinery, other significant sales included a stunning 1973 Ferrari 365 GTS/4 Daytona Spider by Scaglietti. Finished in Giallo Fly over Pelle Nera Vaumol leather, the car is thought to be one of just 16 US examples to feature the classic combination and sold for an impressive €2,592,500. Keeping the Italian marques going, a truly special 1971 Lamborghini Miura SV crossed the block powered by its original “sperimentale” engine and expertly restored to factory specifications, selling for €2,480,000.

Other notable highlights from the sale include a 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 Lightweight, which is belived to be one of only 200 examples produced for 1973 in factory “Lightweight” configuration. Going under the hammer in factory-correct Light Yellow over black, this matching-numbers example went to its second owner for €1,287,500. With multiple victories under its belt, a fascinating history file, and a great portfolio of newer entries in historic racing, the 1967 Tecno T/67-Ford Formula 3—the 1967 Ex-Works Tecno Racing Team car—sold for €132,250.

340 MM Vignale Spyder s/n 0350MM

Augustin Sabatié-Garat, Head of Sales for Europe, says: ‘This is truly one of the most important and rarest of all 1950s Ferraris. The Vignale 340 MMs are beautiful and historically significant cars and are so rarely available to the market that chassis 0350 AM represents a once in a generation opportunity for any serious collector of important sports racing cars.’

Acquired by the consignor in 2012, the Ferrari was sympathetically freshened in 2013, after which it was presented at Pebble Beach in August 2015 where it won the Phil Hill Cup. Chassis number 0350 AM is currently fitted with what is believed to be the original engine block from chassis 0032MT, a very important 1950 Scuderia Ferrari Works sports racer, and is notably accompanied by its original Lampredi V-12 long-block engine, the same motor that captured Sterling Edwards four victories in eight racing appearances from 1953 to 1954. Boasting well documented provenance from new, including nearly 30 years in the noted Sherman Wolf collection and the last ten years in a prominent American collection, this 340 MM has an estimate of €6,000,000 - €8,000,000.
