Back in April, we wrote about the Ferrari auction to be held by RM Auctions Italy. Partial results are in via Luxist and it is stunning: The 1957 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa was sold for $12.2 million which is a new world record. We will list the million dollar sales once the results are public on RM Auctions, usually within a few days after the auction.
Max Girardo, Managing Director of RM Europe says:
“The historical significance of this car attracted a bidding war as collectors from around the world – both in the room and on the telephone – competed to secure one of the most alluring and iconic of all Ferrari racing cars,” said . “The eyes of the world were watching today’s sale as cars of this quality are so rarely offered to the market. The quality and the provenance of the Testa Rossa speaks for itself and the price we achieved today is testament to that.”
