FS: rare sales!

  • Thread starter exigeracer
A 1972 Porsche 2.7 Carrera RS is for sale, asking $1.35 million USD. What makes it special is that it's one of the 17 original 2.7 RS cars that remained in homologation spec when delivered to the customer.

Porsche made the first 500 cars in homologation spec, per requirements, then converted them before delivery to the Lightweight or Touring trim as optioned by the customer. 17 really hardcore guys or gals decided to keep their cars in the original homologation specification and this is one of those cars.

1 of 25 Callaway C12s available @ $175K. I've always liked these cars, but being based on the C5, just not a fan of the C5 interior. For a car that only has 5,000 miles though, it looks like the owner spent a hefty amount of time dragging his feet on the driver's side door speaker.

F1 fans getting a brilliant opportunity in May to own 2 icons out of Mansell's personal collection, his '89 Ferrari 640 (Chassis 609) & '91 Williams FW14 (Chassis 5). The Ferrari propelled to him to victory at Brazil & Hungaroring, and remains in its state since Australian GP. The Williams propelled Nigel to 5 wins & 2nd overall, whilst also listed as the car in the memorable photo of Mansell giving Senna a lift.

No prices expected yet, but these would be extremely cool cars to own & hopefully the new owner/s honor Mansell's request for the cars to be given a new lease-on-life. Mansell is also selling his '05 GP Masters Reynard 2KI, '91 Birkin 7 Sprint, & '92 iC Modulo.

I'd never seen the inside of a C12. Oof. When Callaway built the SuperNatural they would retrim the entire interior if you wanted. That's just a whole-ass C5 interior (which is already worse than the C4's anyway) with a nasty carbon fiber wrap on some of the crappy plastic pieces and etched airbag covers (and since it's an early car not even a very well equipped C5, at that).

Like just buy a Z06 at that point. At least the seats appear to be better than the crappy C5 ones.

RM Sotheby's has announced the new world record of the most expensive sale in history. Eat your heart out Ferrari.

A 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR Uhlenhaut Coupé from 1955 has been sold at auction for a record price of €135,000,000 to a private collector. The car, which is one of two created in 1955, has always been regarded as one of the great jewels of motoring history, but few ever imagined that it would be offered for sale. One of just two prototypes built by the Mercedes-Benz racing department, the car is named after its creator and chief engineer, Rudolf Uhlenhaut, and is considered to be one of the finest examples of automotive engineering and design, often cited as being ‘the most beautiful car in the world’ by automotive experts and enthusiasts worldwide.
The winning bid on the car was an incredible €135,000,000, making it the most valuable car ever sold and a price which exceeds the existing record by more the €90,000,000. In what felt like a surreal experience, the bidding opened at a price higher than the selling price of the 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO sold by RM Sotheby’s in 2018, the car which previously ranked as the most valuable ever sold at auction. The 300 SLR now sits in the top ten most valuable items ever sold at auction. The proceeds will be used to establish a worldwide “Mercedes-Benz Fund” that will provide educational and research scholarships in the areas of environmental science and decarbonisation for young people.

A specialty car dealer here in Connecticut is selling a super rare, genuine Ford GT40 MKIV, specifically chassis J10, for around $2 million USD. Supposedly, it is one of 10 surviving MKIV GT40s.
https://www.f40.com/vehicles-for-sale/used/1967/FORD-GT40 MK IV/985052

At first glance, it looks just like the 1967 Le Mans winner, chassis J5 (that one is displayed at the Henry Ford Museum in Michigan) with the same livery, however, J10 raced in the Can-Am series with a different body and was later restored with the Le Mans body and livery.


This is J10 as is competed, link to story:

3 LaFerrari prototypes



The first is an early test mule from 2011 which features the chassis and body of a 458 Italia with the LaFerrari's V-12 and other hardware packed in. A similar test mule went up for sale in May at an RM Sotheby's auction, but failed to find a buyer.




The second car is a prototype from 2012 that features the carbon-fiber tub and some of the body panels that made it into the LaFerrari. This tester also features an early version of the LaFerrari's hybrid setup.


The third car is a pre-production prototype from 2013, and as a result it's almost identical to the production LaFerrari first shown at the 2013 Geneva International Motor Show.

One of the most impressive F1 cars coming up, an icon of a car that propelled an icon to his 6th title. And it is fully functional following a refresh & Ferrari Classiche certification meaning this should go for big, big money.
Car sold last year for £1,000,050 w/ 16,146 miles on it, and the current bid is at £2,100,500 w/ 520 miles added on.

Helluva a return.
