Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona Competizione, 1971. One of 15 units built by Ferrari for U.S. distributor Luigi Chinetti is due to be auctioned at Mecum’s sale during Monterey Car Week. The car is expected to sell for between $1.25 million and $1.65 million
The recent Silverstone Auction netted some surprisingly high bids including:
1972 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona formerly owned by Sir Elton John sold for £551,250.
Despite an estimate of £70,000 - £85,000 before the sale, bidding for a rare 1973 BMW 3.0 CSL started at £95,000 and after a rapid-fire battle between room, phone and online bidders it eventually sold in the room for a final price of £137,250.
A 1987 Ford Sierra Cosworth RS500 raced past the £100,000 mark during a fierce bidding war, eventually selling for £114,750 to an online bidder from Australia.
