Artcurial consigns Le Mans-winning Ferrari 275 P to Rétromobile auction

After achieving the highest price for a car at public auction with its 1957 Ferrari 335 S Scaglietti — 32m euros — in 2016, Artcurial has announced it will sell the Le Mans-winning 1964 Ferrari 275 P at its upcoming Rétromobile sale, with which it could make its way into history books, yet again…

From the renowned Bardinon Collection, the same stable in which last year’s headliner used to reside, this 275 P, chassis number 0816, will make its first public appearance in over 17 years, after being reunited with its Le Mans-winning driver Jean Guichet at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in 2000. Not only is this a Le Mans-winning car, it is the last factory Ferrari to ever win the arduous endurance race, being driven to victory by the aforementioned Guichet and Nino Vaccarella. With the auction not taking place until 9 February 2018, auction house Artcurial Motorcars will have plenty of time to register bidders, as the interest surrounding this fabulous machine is sure to generate a great crowd in Paris next year.
