1960 Ferrari California Auction
At this year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Eleganza Ferrari in cooperation with Gooding and Co. auctioned a number of very rare and exciting models. They also handed over the first tailor made car in America which was a Ferrari FF designed by golfer Ian Poulter.
The highlight of the auction was a 1960 Ferrari California 250 LWB Spider Competizione, one of the finest Ferraris of all time, which sold for the staggering sum of $11 million USD. At the same auction other wonderful Ferraris from the same collection came under the hammer: such as the 1985 288 GTO, sold for 1 million Dollars, and a 340 MM Spider, sold for almost 4.5 million Dollars.
The California is one of the rarest and most sought after classic cars in the world. It is chuffing magic this thing with glorious design and a singing V12 engine. $11 million is frankly a bargain for this car!
The 1960 California 250 LWB Spider Competizione reigned the event and went to an anonymous collector for over 11 million Dollars (including the auction fee). The car is an extremely rare model and has been built only nine times for competition. The car comes from the Sherman M. Wolf collection, who had bought it from its first owner in 1979 and owned it until last weekend. A rare car that also only had two owners.
The weekend in Pebble Beach ended under the sign of Ferrari. After the enthusiasm for the debut of the F12berlinetta in the USA and the handover of the personalised Tailor Made FF to the British golfer Ian Poulter, the manufacturer from Maranello was also a protagonist at the auction on the Californian weekend.
