RM Auctions, founded in 1991 in Blenheim, Ontario will be auctioning off an ultra-rare 1965 Ferrari 275 GTB at next month’s Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance.
The Ferrari 275 GTB by Scaglietti was produced in the early 1960’s, specifically during the a short 3 year period between 1964 and 1966. Being a Ferrari of ’60s era vintage as well as a hand-built car by Italian coachbuilder Scaglietti means one thing: rarity. And as well all know, when a rare Ferrari crosses the auction block – especially an example like this, which hasn’t been for sale in 35 years – prices generally start in the 7-figure range and go from there.
RM hasn’t released any catalogue information besides boilerplate auction information, but their estimate points to an expected hammer price of $1,000,000–$1,300,000 USD, auction fees notwithstanding. The car in question, chassis 07751, hasn’t been sold publicly in 35 years; a point that RM Auctions is using as a major selling point. The car is a numbers matching car, which will only help to increase the final selling price.
