1965 Ferrari 275 GTB/6C

Back when human hands had a bigger role in manufacturing, two things tended to happen: Processes, materials, and methods could change on the fly, often as things were being built, and no two objects were the same. The Ferrari 275 GTB is a perfect example, and this 1965 GTB/6C is the perfect GTB. A propensity to lift the front end at speed caused a change on the production line to a longer nose. Another change was the driveshaft joint for ease of maintenance. This car has both, along with a lightweight alloy body and six carburetors, making it the rarest of the rare. A meticulously maintained ownership and maintenance history, as well as the above-mentioned production refinements, make this one of the best classics to wear the Prancing Horse.

  • 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.

  • 1978 Aston Martin V8 Vantage

    In 1977, Aston Martin released the first British supercar. The V8 Vantage was capable of a top speed of 170 MPH, and ran 0-60 in 5.3 seconds — a tenth of a second faster than the Ferrari Daytona, Aston's main competitor. The hand-assembled V8 Vantage would receive constant upgrades and remain a flagship model in the Aston lineup — and James Bond's garage — until 1989. This 1978 V8 Vantage was destined for Canada, being delivered to a customer in British Columbia, and eventually ended up in the hands of Vantage collector Kean Rogers. A 2005 engine rebuild punched the motor out from 5.4 to 6.0 liters, giving it 500 hp and 500 ft-lbs of torque, all with European-spec parts and work by Aston Engineering. This V8 Vantage will be on the auction block August 18-19, 2017 at the Sotheby's Monterey event.
