Coming from a private collection, these rare beauties will be put up for auction at Bonhams’ sale of Collector’s Motor Cars and Automobilia on April 11. The event will take place at the Royal Air Force Museum, Hendon and the four Ferraris in the pictures (a 1985 Ferrari 288GTO Berlinetta, a 1990 Ferrari F40 Berlinetta, a 1999 Ferrari F50 Brachetta and a 2003 Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale) are expected to raise over £1 million together.
1999 Ferrari F50 Brachetta: £350,000-£400,000
The 1999 Brachetta has got only 5,444 km on its odometer and it’s one of the only 349 units ever made. Many of its siblings went straight to private collectors and museums after they rolled out of the factory. The two seater, powered by a powerful V12 and boasting alluring carbon fiber features, is based on the Ferrari 614/2, which won 6 races in 1990.
1985 Ferrari 288GTO Berlinetta: £350,000-£400,000
The beautiful and very rare Ferrari 288GTO is part of a limited edition of only 200 vehicles. It was designed by Leonardo Fioravanti of Pininfarina, who based his creation on the 308GTB model. First introduced at the 1984 Geneva Salon, the 288GTO is definitely a car to covet.
1990 Ferrari F40 Berlinetta: £300,000-£350,000
Developed from the aforementioned limited edition 288GTO, this Ferrari F40 Berlinetta is a precious mid-engine, two seater coupe with coachwork from Pininfarina. The baby was once badly hurt after a serious front-end accident, but his owner, Vittorio Colombo, commissioned Michelotto of Padova for a perfect restoration.
2003 Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale: £75,000-£85,000
First introduced at the Geneva Motor Show, this vehicle is not only extremely good looking, it is also a ride that flaunted top notch technologies when it first appeared in 2003. And above all, it’s a Ferrari!
