1950 Ferrari 166 MM/212

In 1950, Enzo Ferrari's fledgling company had been in existence for only three years. Four wealthy brothers — Vittorio, Giannino, Paolo, and Umberto Marzotto owned some 20 or more Ferraris between them, lending a large hand in keeping the company stable through those early years. Accomplished drivers in their own right, Giannino won the legendary Mille Miglia twice. After a crash put the car out of commission, it was rebuilt with the bodywork seen here. Known as the "Uovo", or egg, the result of an attempt at weight reduction and aerodynamic streamlining. A one-off example of early Ferraris, the 166 MM/212 is an important car in Ferrari's racing heritage.

  • Porsche 911 Safari

    One of only three copies built by Eric Brandenburg, who piloted his own in the 2007 Transsyberia Rally, this Porsche 911 Safari is a true rarity. It started life as a 1978 SC but has since been transformed into a capable off-road machine. Modifications include a beefed up suspension with Bilstein B6 Sport dampers, mudder tires mounted on 16-inch rims, stainless steel skid plates to protect the undercarriage, and a winch hidden in the custom front bumper. It develops nearly 230 hp from its 3.2L flat-six engine, plenty enough to make the monochrome Martini Racing livery a little blurry as you go sliding past.

  • Ferrari Performance Collection

    Spanning 50 years and a wide range of price points, the Ferrari Performance Collection is a selection of 13 of Maranello's most notable releases, all headed for auction in Monterey. The set is headlined by a concours-level silver 1961 250 GT SWB Berlinetta, expected to fetch over $8.5 million. On the opposite end of the spectrum is a 1989 328 GTS, with an expected closing range of $90-$120K. All of the cars were the property of a single, caring owner, have relatively low mileage, and are being offered almost entirely without reserve.
