This Assortment of 5 Basic Ferraris Is Anticipated to Fetch $20 Million at Public sale

Why settle for one Ferrari when you can have five?

A quintet of the Italian marque’s supercar will be auctioned off by RM Sotheby’s in Toronto later this spring. The vehicles, which are known as the “Big Five” to enthusiasts, are widely considered to be the finest and most coveted to leave Maranello between 1984 and 2018.

The 1970s and ‘80s were a period of transition for the Prancing Horse. After decades spent exclusively building front-engine V-12s, the automaker’s lineup had started to fill with mid-engine sports cars powered by V-6 and V-8 engines. The company wanted to reaffirm its commitment to high-performance automobiles and what better way to do so than by releasing its first supercar? That would be the 288 GTO, which launched in 1984 and would be followed by the F40 in 1987, the F50 in 1995, the Enzo in 2002, and the LaFerrari in 2013. The “Big Five” contains gorgeous and well-maintained red examples of each of the flagships.

Up first, is a 1985 288 GTO, the sole V-8, from the collection. This example is one of just 272 built and spent 26 years in the hands of its first owner before being acquired by five-time Ryder Cup-winning golfer Ian Poulter. It’s expected to sell for between $3.75 million and $4 million. Next up is a 1990 F40. The one up for grabs is a desirable “non-cat, non-adjust” example with only 1,000 miles on it. It’s expected to go for between $2.75 million and $3.25 million. Then there’s a 1996 F50 (pictured up top). The European-spec example comes with the original flight case for its removable hardtop and Ferrari Classiche certification. The auction house expects it to sell for between $3.8 million and $4.5 million.

Moving into this century, there’s a 2003 Enzo. The U.S-spec example is the first to be shown on North American soil and has just 5,349 miles on the odometer. It will likely sell for between $3.75 million and $4.25 million. Finally, there’s a 2015 LaFerrari. This example of the definitive Ferrari has had just two owners and totaled less than 2,000 miles since leaving the factory. It’s estimated to sell for between $3.85 million and $4.25 million.

You’ll get your chance to bid on each of these Ferraris on Friday, May 31, and Saturday, June 1, during the curated “Dare to Dream Collection” sale. You could also bid on all five, but if you want to take the entire quintet home, expect to pay between $18 million and $2 million.
