This Ferrari 550 GT1 will give you wings!

On the eve of the 2021 Mille Miglia, RM Sotheby’s will hold an auction of rare and desirable cars including this 2001 Ferrari 550 GT1 race car.

Increasingly popular with collectors and racers alike, GT1 category cars not only have a recognisable blood line to road cars but also allow access to some great racing on some of the world’s greatest race tracks.

This 2001 Ferrari 550 GT1 is one of two cars built by Italtecnica for the 2001 FIA GT Championship. Run by Team Rafanelli and driven by Italian racers Emanuele Naspetti and Mimmo Schiattarella the car also led the 24 Hours of Spa.

For 2002 the car was reworked by JAS Engineering and gained a new sponsor, Red Bull. Over the next few season’s the car would see some great results including race wins and in 2004, it was even driven by Mercedes-AMG F1 team principle, Toto Wolff!

Now returned back to its eye-catching 2002 Red Bull livery this 550 GT1 is eligible for the Endurance Racing Legends series and the Masters Endurance Legends series. A rare opportunity to buy a contemporary racing Ferrari that will look great on display and even better out on the racetrack.
