Leading the final additions to the auction is the outstanding 1995 Ferrari F50 with an auction estimate of
$4,000,000-4,500,000. Previously part of the renowned Matsuda Collection, with two long-term Japanese
private owners and showing fewer than 7,146 miles. This modern supercar is offered with tools, a luggage
set including a suit bag and a briefcase bag, a tonneau cover and rollover hoops, its hardtop, and its factory
red F50 logoed flight case.
Final additions to the roster include the highly desirable 1995 Ferrari F50, an adventurous 1973 Porsche
911 Carrera RS 2.7 M471 “Lightweight” Safari Rallye, a fascinating 1966 Mercedes-Benz 600 Pullman
Landaulet, a 2008 Lamborghini Reventón, 1993 Vector Avtech WX-3 Prototype and lastly, a previously
announced 1985 Ferrari 288 GTO, which is offered without reserve.
The adventurous 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 M471 “Lightweight” Safari Rallye, with an auction estimate
of $2,500,000-3,000,000 stands out not only due to its desirable original specification as an M471 RS 2.7
Lightweight, but also for its off-the-continent racing history, its exacting restoration, and its continued use in
one of the most grueling forms of motorsport, international rallying.
One of the notable highlights of the auction is the 1966 Mercedes-Benz 600 Pullman Landaulet with an
estimate of $2,250,000-2,650,000. One of just 33 in this configuration, this example reigns supreme due to
its longstanding corporate, factory ownership and unique history with the German government, for which it
transported such notable guests as English royalty and Apollo-era astronauts. It is undoubtedly one of the
most extraordinary examples of a Pullman Landaulet in existence.
Perhaps the zenith of small production sports cars of its era, the 1993 Vector Avtech WX-3 Prototype with an
auction estimate of $1,500,000-2,000,000, is a unicorn of automotive and American supercar history. This
example is a true high-performance giant with a variable turbo boost selector bringing reported power to 1,000
horsepower. The sprint to 60 mph reportedly takes only 3.3 seconds, onward to a top speed of 248 mph.
Another spectacular Ferrari on the roster is the 1985 Ferrari 288 GTO with an estimate of
$4,250,000-4,750,000, offered without reserve. The 288 GTO of course is the first and rarest model in an
exclusive series of modern, low-volume Ferrari supercars. It is presented in its as-delivered livery of Rosso
Corsa over a Pelle Nera interior with rare red fabric seat inserts.
