In total, 93% of the cars offered were sold this weekend. The auction took place as part of the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique. The ultra rare 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB / C with bodywork by Scaglietti. Chassis 09067 took the lead and is the ninth of only twelve produced. And perhaps the most original. An opportunity for investors with a big bag of money. There were no fewer than six Ferraris in the top ten. The beautiful 1959 Ferrari 250 GT Pininfarina Series I Convertible, chassis 1181 GT, received the second highest bid of the evening and was knocked down on a not-sick € 4.704.000. The third most valuable car was the 1967 Ferrari 330 GTS, chassis 10719. It is one of ninety-nine built copies and has won several prizes at various competitions. The car was hammered for 'only' € 2.128.000.
The cars were part of an 90 sports and racing car offered during the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique. Including the 1966 Brabham - Repco BT20 Formula 1 car. The car won at the 1967 Grand Prix of Monaco in the hands of Denny Hulme during his championship winning year. Although the car was estimated at € 720.000, it yielded considerably more with a reduced € 1.092.000.
Finally for the boat lovers among us. An 1958 Riva Tritone - also known as 'Via' - was also among the offered lots. This stylish and fast boat was once owned by HSH Prince Rainier III of Monaco and his wife Princess Grace and is seen as an important piece of cultural history in the principality. The beautifully restored boat was therefore fixed at € 403.200.
