The green Ferrari with dreams of Daytona
Ferrari? Tick. Green? Tick. Race car? Tick. What is not to love about a stripped-out racing Ferrari, especially when the owner had the great hindsight to paint it green long before it was a desirable colour. With visions of Nick Mason's gorgeous BB/LM that raced at Le Mans in a similar hue of green at the 1980 Le Mans, this 308 wants for further investigation. Up for auction in Arizona with RM Sotheby’s on January 27th, you can view the full details in the Classic Driver Market.
It may not be a flame spitting Group 5 Flat-12 like Mason's, but this club racer will still deliver huge grins. The V8 engine was rebuilt by legendary mechanic Bob Wallace - famous for his development work at Lamborghini. Offered from the Dr Terry Maxon collection, the car was transformed into a club racer over a number of years, and finally took to the track in 2012 at the hands of Maxon, who enjoyed six years of American club racing.
In that time the car was continuously developed by Maxon, with invoices totalling in excess of $100,000, this car may look well used, but it is also very well cared for. Wearing unmistakebale 288 GTO style bodywork, this IMSA style racer would be huge fun on track days, and with some minor fettling would be eligible for various global race series. Under single ownership for almost 30 years, this is a great opportunity to dip your toe in to the glamorous world of Ferrari race cars. And did we mention its green?
