We continue to witness the power of 'no reserve', and the fact that all lots from this collection—including many items that rarely surface for public auction—are being offered without reserve sets the scene for a very exciting sale.'

Ferrari dominates the field of 11 race cars included in the group, led by none other than the 2014 Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona-class winning 2012 Ferrari 458 GTD, one of two such models included in the sale. There's also a pair of Ferrari 430s, including a 430 GT2 along with an example custom built for Level 5 by Crawford Engineering, as well as a 2005 Ferrari 360 Modena Challenge.
