Typically the top blue-chip cars have been reserved for private sales, but this week might be the turning point. In the next few days we will see undoubtedly the world’s best supercars offered in a public setting. First and foremost is CSX2601, a car described by Pete Brock as the best Cobra Daytona of them all. ABC news called it ‘number 26’ and quoted 10-12 million. We will find out the real value on May 15th when Dana Mecum will auction it in Indianapolis with a live stream online.
By now, Leggenda e Passione is synonymous with Ferraris and Fiorano. RM Auctions has assembled probably their best collection yet with a 250 Testa Rossa being the absolute star of the auction. They will also sell the Schermerhorn Collection with some of the very first Ferrari road cars. This gives us a great chance to review both the 166 Inter and 195 Inter before they go over the block on the 17th.
Finally, Bonhams & Brooks will stage their annual Monaco Auction on the 18th. Among a Miura SV, Porsche 959 and Ferrari 333SP, we pick this Ermini 357. It’s our first Ermini on supercars.net and also the most desirable one having raced at the 1955 and 1956 Mille Miglia.
