British auction house Bonhams’ next Grand Palais Sale of classic cars will feature one of the all-time greatest masterpieces from Italian carmaker Ferrari, the Ferrari 275 GTB. The estimated value of the 1966 GTB is between $3.8 million CAD and $5.3 million CAD.
The 275 GTB was designed by Ferrari founder Enzo Ferrari, and was first introduced to great acclaim at the 1964 Paris auto show. It was the successor to the immensely popular – and today highly valuable – Ferrari 250 series, one of which is currently the most highly valued car ever sold at auction: a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO went for an incredible $52.75 million CAD.
Also to feature at the upcoming Bonhams sale is a 1990 Ferrari F40 Berlinetta, estimated to be worth between $1.45 million CAD and $1.67 million CAD. The F40 was the last model personally approved by Enzo Ferrari, and at the time of its launch was the most powerful model ever built by the Italian manufacturer.
