Auctions and Auction house · RM Sothebys

RM Leggenda e Passione, Maranello – 9th September

For all the arguments by Porsche fans, there is little doubt that Ferrari is singularly the most important post war motorcar company. Famed for both their prowess on track and powerful road cars, Ferrari is now one of the worlds best known brands, transcending its marketplace. The genesis of this sale was Ferraris ever present quest to open new opportunities for the brand and the need to publicise their new Classiche department. Sothebys hadnt hosted an automobile auction since the mid 1990s and they jumped at the chance to partner with Ferrari and hosted a sale at Maranello in 2005 that featured a selection of incredible Ferraris such as a 121LM, the unique 412S (#0744), ’62 Le Mans winning 330LM and the unique Maserati 450S Coupe. Two things were born from this event, firstly the awful sell-through rate with none of the aforementioned classics selling and few if any real bids for them and secondly Sothebys partnered with the Canadian firm, RM Auctions.

RM returned in 2007 with sole hosting rights and offered an impeccable selection of Classic and Modern Ferrari with all bases covered including two 250GT SWB, a 512S/M, 340MM, the Le Mans winning 330LM and a 340/375MM. A 250LM and James Coburns SWB California were the highlights of the 2008 sale, the later car setting a new world record when it sold to British DJ and Top Gear host Chris Evans. Finally the 2009 sale saw the 330P4/350 Can Am (#0858) offered but not sold and another new world record with the stunning 250 Testa Rossa (#0714TR) before RM announced they would move their May slot to biennial sales at Villa d’Este and Monaco. The shift was supposedly due to Ferraris demand that any lots on offer be Classiche certified with many vendors rather leery of this process back in ’09. Despite the success of these three sales and the untold successes at both Monaco and Villa Erba/ Villa d’Este, RM/ Sothebys surprised everyone by announcing they would return to Maranello in ’17.

In keeping with the generational shift in the market, this auction sees a change from a focus on classics to moderns. This dynamic shown by the average age of offerings, (2007) 1976, (2008) 1977 and (2009) 1969 whereas 2017 sees this jump forward to 1981 with seven produced in the 2010s alone. Along with the earlier sales there is also a dynamic where this sale offers cars directly from Ferraris own collection, particularly unique examples such as the LaFerrari Aperta and 488 “Green Jewel” although there are no Corsa Clienti Formula 1 cars like the earlier events. The headline acts are the gorgeous Long Wheelbase California at a market correct 7.5 – 9.5 million EURO ($8.9 – 11.3 million US) and the 250GT Short Wheelbase at 8.5 – 10 million EURO ($10.1 – 11.9 million US). The sale of the Steel bodied SWB at Monterey at $8.3 million is a sign where the market is and a counterpoint to the handful that have failed to sell at reserves around the $10 million mark and while this example is a competition car with allloy bodywork it lacks either the competition history or the condition (restored mid 1980s) to bring the big bucks and its sale will be a test of the vendors motivation.

Interesting cars on offer are lead by the unique and fascinating alloy bodied Daytona Stradale in totally original form at 1.4 – 1.7 million EURO ($1.6 – 2 million US), a price point that has seen two semi competition fail. Two of my favourite cars of the sale are the US domiciled 330GTS (1.8 – 2.2 million EURO/ $2.1 – 2.6 million US) and 500 Superfast (1.6 – 2.3 million EURO/ $1.9 – 2.7 million US) are both well worth a look and good buying at their estimates. I struggle with the beautiful but non matching numbers 750 Monza at 3.4 – 3.8 million Euros ($4 – 4.5 million US) and 250GT Cabriolet Series I at 4.7 – 5.5 million EURO ($5.6 – 6.5 million US) and the latter is expensive compared to the example sold at Gooding Pebble Beach. Just one 275 is on offer, an Alloy Longnose at 2.4 – 2.8 million EURO ($2.8 – 3.3 million US) and it is noted to have received a very good restoration in the last 5 years. Another two favourite Ferrari are the very early although quite expensive 195 Inter at 1.1 – 1.5 million EURO ($1.3 – 1.8 million US) and the 250 Inter that is still looking for a permanent home at 2.8 – 3.2 million EURO ($3.3 – 3.8 million US)

Pretty much every limited edition Ferrari supercar is on offer and they are lead by the first public offering of a LaFerrari Aperta, for charity no less, that should easily top $5 million (maybe $7 – 8 million even?) although it is not noted what charity which is peculiar. A 288GTO that was ordered with wind up windows and no radio is rather hilariously termed a lightweight and despite ultra low mileage is estimated at a whopping 3.25 – 4 million EURO ($3.9 – 4.8 million US) which I struggle to see happening. The double Nero Enzo is market correct at 1.8 – 2 million EURO ($2.1 – 2.4 million US) and a rare Bianco Fuji 599SA Aperta is on offer at 1.1 – 1.4 million EURO ($1.3 – 1.7 million US), a level where only 2 of the handful have sold. As for bargains they are few and far between, even the unloved Ferraris on offer carrying rather strong estimates and the most interesting car of the sale is probably the only thing that could be loosely called a bargain. The 400i GT is probably the least loved of all Ferraris and yet the car on offer is both one of the best examples extant and has only ever been owned by Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards so while the 125 – 175k EURO ($150 – 210k US) estimate is ridiculous for the type it is perhaps the car with the most upside and uber cool.

It must be noted that all single marque sales struggle to both hold interest due to the difficulty in offering truly fresh product, Bonhams for example hosting and struggling with their Aston, Ferrari and Mercedes-Benz sales although if anyone can make an event a success its RM/ Sothebys. While the lot list maybe a fair way from the Testa Rossas and 330P4 of the past, it is a pretty good selection with most bases covered.

RESULTS

After their disastrous sale in London, there may have been concerns about this event and despite the concerns about Ferrari and the events surrounding their 70th birthday, this auction smashed it out of the park. The total result was no less than $74.905 million, well above any other Maranello sale and a record for any non Monterey auction and among the 20th greatest automobile auction ever held (by gross dollar sale). Aside from the gross result, the 90% sell-through rate was nothing to be sniffed at while the auction easily smashed the record for the most expensive 21st century car yet (too early to say ever?). Fully 15 of the 42 lots sold for over their high estimate as opposed to just 7 under low estimate and the 4 that didn’t sell and 16 at a mid estimate amount, all excellent results and superlative results in the current market.

One of the top two sales of the year for sheer chutzpah was the LaFerrari Aperta, perhaps the perfect car for todays future focused market with charity status only adding to the desire and it sold for a whopping 8.3 million EURO ($10.1 million US) and that is no less than 107% over its high estimate. Whether this has any affect on other Aperta sales will only be known in about 18 months when they come off contract and get offered but my take is that this high sale amount is purely bounce related and once 10 – 20 come to market supply and demand will become reversed and the prices will drop while being a charity lot certainly didn’t hurt. The second killer sale was the 488 Spider “Green Jewel” at 1.09 million EURO ($1.34 million US) or 187% over. As expected the Keith Richards 400i went for 345,000 EURO ($416k US) or 97% over while the LaFerrari prototipo (that can’t EVER be legally used on the road) surprised at 2.13 million EURO ($2.57 million US) or 64% over.

At the other end of the spectrum the four no sales weren’t surprising with the 250GT Short Wheelbase proving typical failing at 8.5 – 10 million EURO which as Monterey showed was more than ample. Otherwise there was the 333SP that failed at 2.8 – 3.3 million EURO, an amount far more than any previous example has sold for, a 550 Barchetta at 420 – 480k EURO and the 458GT3 at 550 – 600k EURO. Other special lots were the 250GT Cabriolet Series I at $5.7 million and 250GT California LWB at $9.5 million, both mid estimate while it was great to see the 250 Europa sell at $3.5 million and I can only hope that this is to an actual end user who will love it like it deserves. A car that surprised me was the so called “lightweight” 288GTO and while it was low mileage I was shocked to see it sell at $3.9 million which seemed very high indeed although was only mid estimate so go figure.

RMs efforts with this sale must be celebrated and they really could not have been expected to achieve much more. Bravo.
