Half A Dozen Ferrari Spiders Up For Auction In Scottsdale
No matter the season or weather, thoughts of driving a classic Ferrari convertible are always appropriate. And on 17-18 January at the Gooding & Co.’s auction in Scottsdale, Arizona, a collection of six very desirable and mint-condition ‘spiders’ from the Italian marque spanning four decades will make their way across the auction block.
First is a 1960 250 GT Series II Cabriolet, no. 68 of just 200 built that comes with an unrestored hard top, estimated to go for between $1.3 million to $1.5 million. Next is a car once owned by director Sydney Pollack, a 1972 365 GTB/4 Daytona, going for between $2 million and $2.4 million.
With a nod to the original Magnum P.I., how about a 1985 Ferrari 308 GTS Quattrovalvole, with an estimation of between just $80,000 and $100,000? Then there’s the 1990 348 TS in factory configuration, going for $80,000 to $10,000. Or, a 2001 550 Barchetta, one of just 448 built and with just 682 miles on the clock, for between $400,000 and $500,000.
Yes, that’s only five, because we’ve saved the best for last: an ultra rare 1995 F50, one of just 55 made for the US with only 5,200 miles from new and an F1-derived 4.7-litre V12. The expected selling price also reflects the desirability of this car: between $3.2 million and $3.6 million.
