Unusually high reserves kept most the Ferraris from selling at last weekend’s auction in Gstaad. Despite putting together a stellar collection of Italian cars, Bonham’s failed to sell any of the highlight lots.
The first among these was an ex-LeMans Ferrari 121LM which attracted a high bid of 3.7 million USD. The other star of the sale, a Motto-bodied 212 Export also failed to sell at 2.15 million USD. One car which caught our eye was a blue and red 308 Group 4 prepared by Michelotti. All these and more can be found in our feature gallery by Dirk de Jager.
The Bologona show was the last major international event of the year. We featured some of the cars last week but now have a gallery full of supercars. Major debuts included the Ferrari Scuderia 16M, Covini’s C6W Spider, Gallardo LP560-4 Super Trofeo and Volkswagen Scirocco Studie R. Our combined gallery by Davide Barbaro and Bezzi Enrico has all of these.
