1957 Ferrari 625 TRC Scaglietti Spider auctioned off for whopping $6.4 millionMay 18, 2012 by: Rituraj Mishra
Once a Ferrari, always a Ferrari, nothing can change this fact. It’s value will never decrease, well unless if it’s been in an accident and is not worth driving. Ferrari’s reign was at full swing at the RM Auctions Monaco event where they achieved record sales.
A 1957 Ferrari 625 TRC Scaglietti Spider was auctioned for $6.4 million, which is a record for this particular model. This model has not been in an auction for over 30 years and is one of the only two of these ever built.
In all the RM Auction did a business of about $43 million. The list of the vehicles sold is quite accomploished with some very special ones that went for great prices. A 1952 Ferrari 225 Sport Spyder ‘Tuboscocca’ and a 1966 Ferrari 206 Dino Spyder both fetching $3.2 million. A 1971 Ferrari 365 GTS/4 Daytona Spyder received $1.3 million. Schumi’s Ferrari F1-2000 went for $1 million while the amazing and awaited 1953 Timossi Ferrari ‘Arno XI’ Racing Hydroplane fetched $1.1 million.
“Monaco 2012 has been a fantastic success. With in excess of 33.5 million sold, this sale rates as one of Europe’s highest grossing collector car sales of all time and most certainly the highest grossing collector car auction in Europe this year. Once again, RM has proved itself to be the preeminent force in the collector car auction scene,” says Max Girardo, Managing Director, RM Europe”.
Nothing we can say about that sir, this has been a true success, which is owed to the living history of Ferrari.
