Rare Ferraris from Bonhams in Monaco
An extremely rare 1950 Ferrari is expected to fetch in the region of $1.5 million at Bonhams' annual Les Grandes Marques à Monaco sale in the principality on April 30th. The 1950 166/195S Cabriolet by Vignale (above) was originally created as a Berlinetta and factory rebodied in 1951. Very few examples were built of the highly collectible model, which has several racing victories in its pedigree including a Mille Miglia win. Impeccably restored it has a stunning leather interior.
Also offered in the sale are a rare 'alloy bodied' 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB, estimated at $930,000 – $1.1 million; an early 1989 Ferrari F40, formerly owned by Michel Neugarten, which has raced in the Italian GT championship and the BPR series, estimated at $315,000 - $385,000.; and a rare 1976 'vetroresina' Ferrari 308 GTB, estimated at only $70,000 - $110,000.
