- Already a classic, low production numbers
- Extremely rigorous overview
- One of the last 2+2 with manual gearbox
- Ex Max Cohen-Olivar
- No reserve
In its superb "bleu Pozzi" livery over a beige leather interior, this example was delivered new in Germany by the Ferrari dealership in Wiesbaden on 8 July 1998. It was purchased by the late Max Cohen-Olivar in November of 2004. Considered to be the most reputable race car driver of Morocco, he notably took part 20 times in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. A touching anecdote: he sold the car in 2011 to reacquire it in 2013! Having been meticulously maintained, this example has undergone an extensive overhaul at Ferrari Pozzi in Levallois since December 2018 for almost 22,000 €. At this occasion, the timing belt and numerous seals were changed and the car received four new tires and front shock absorbers. It has just benefited from a complete "detailing" in order to bring its paint and beautiful shape back to its former glory. The odometer now displays slightly over 62,000km, a reasonable mileage for an engine known to be fairly robust. The car is equipped with its toolkit, manuals as well as its spare key. Its service manual lists regular maintenance executed in France. This exquisite V12 is one of the last Ferrari 2+2 coupes with manual gearbox to be collected urgently, especially with this noble provenance.
