Enzo film Ferrari makes £68k at auction

Published 10 October 2016

A 1973 Ferrari 365 GT4 that starred in the ‘Enzo Ferrari’ film sold for €75,800 (£68,256) at Coys’ inaugural Paris motor show auction on 9 October. The car, which was from the prestigious Violati Collection, was offered with its original Modena number of MO 39333, and sold to a collector in New Zealand.

Another highlight of the auction was the sale was the rare 1931 Cadillac Fleetwood Drophead Coupe liveried in real 24 carat Gold Leaf that once belonged to the flamboyant pianist Liberace, which sold for €98,000.

Other collectors’ cars that went under the hammer include two Porsche 356 Pre A, a 1955 cabriolet that sold for €260,600 (£234,438) and a 1953 1500 S coupe for €283,000 (£254,595) to the same buyer, a 2009 Ferrari 430 Scuderia for €170,000 (£152,937), a 1954 Corvette C1 for over €70,000 (£62,971) and a 1990 Lamborghini Countach Anniversary with less than 400 miles on the clock for €367,000 (£330,152).

And a 2009 Tesla Roadster ‘Signature Edition’, which was the first ever Tesla delivered to Europe, sold for €50,740 (£49,251). There is little doubt that this early, historically important all-electric car will be one of the classics of the future.

Estimates indicate that more than 2000 visitors attended the auction at the international biennial event, also the world’s leading motor show in terms of visitor numbers with 1,253,513 people in attendance in 2014, which saw cars being sold to international buyers across Europe, Japan and the United States.

The Automobile Club de l'Ouest (ACO) 24hs of Le Mans 2017 VIP Hospitality donated a charity. Money from its sale helped raise funds to support a young boy whose parents, a police officer and a police secretary, were murdered by a terrorist in Magnanville, France, in June.

Coys next auction will be on 29 October at Alexandra Palace, London.
