• Hypercar 'full house' includes Ferrari Enzo, F50, F40, 288 GTO, and 599XX

LONDON (16 April, 2013) – RM Auctions, the world's largest collector car auction house for investment-quality automobiles, is delighted to announce that its exclusive sale during the Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este weekend on Lake Como, Italy, on the 25th of May, will feature a truly incredible roster of Ferraris, including a full house of the marque's ultimate modern-era hypercars. Sixteen of the auction's 40 lots are filled with some of the finest Ferraris ever made, amongst which are an Enzo, F50, F40, 288 GTO, and a 599XX.

Max Girardo, Managing Director of RM Auctions, says, 'RM has a reputation for selling the world's best Ferraris, and this sale not only features some of the best cars from the 1950s, '60s, and '70s, but we are delighted to have brought together the ultimate collection of Ferrari's landmark supercars of the last 30 years. It is very rare indeed to have such fantastic, low mileage, well documented, and Ferrari certified examples of these models together in one sale'.

The Ferrari Enzo is the ultimate development of a Ferrari hypercar, boasting a 650 brake horsepower, 5,998-cubic centimetre V-12 engine with double overhead camshafts that delivers 200 mph performance. The car offered for sale is chassis 138347, one of 400 examples built and presented in as new condition, with just 1,028 kilometres on the clock. Complete with tools, books, and documentation, it has been recently serviced and is certified by Ferrari Classiche (Estimate: €780,000–€880,000).

During the 1990s, Ferrari launched the F50 as its 50th anniversary model, the ultimate embodiment of what was capable in supercar development at that time. Only 349 of these incredible 520 brake horsepower, V-12 engined cars were produced, and the example offered at the Lake Como auction, chassis 106910, is a superb, low-mileage example that is boasting Ferrari Classiche certification. An exceptional two owner car, it is believed to be the 283rd example built (Estimate: €420,000–€480,000).

For many though, the F40 of the 1980s is the most iconic of all the Ferrari hypercars. Designed to celebrate the company's 40th anniversary, and the last car to be personally signed off by Enzo Ferrari himself, the F40 brought genuine race car looks, engineering, and performance to the public roads, and with its astonishing performance from a 478 brake horsepower, 2,936-cubic centimetre V-8 engine, it redefined the standard by which supercars are judged, heralding a new era for exotic, high-performance sports cars. The car to be offered at auction, chassis 80715, was delivered new in April 1989 and finished in classic Rosso Corsa and the F40's distinctive red cloth interior. Two owners from new, it boasts just 40,000 kilometres, and it is offered for sale complete with Ferrari Classiche certification and having been freshly serviced (Estimate: €320,000–€420,000).

Connoisseurs recognize the Ferrari 288 GTO as a truly landmark car for Ferrari. Carrying the fabled GTO nomenclature, standing for 'Gran Turismo Omologato', the 288 was built to road specification in order to homologate the model for the fearsome and short-lived Group B competition regulations of the 1980s. Less overtly distinctive as some of Ferrari's other hypercars, the 288 GTO carries more subtle design touches, which mark it out to discerning enthusiasts as a very special, low-volume model. Chassis 54777 was produced in February 1985, it is Ferrari Classiche certified, and it has only covered 34,960 kilometres from new (Estimate: €800,000–€950,000).

Finishing off the list of Ferrari's modern era supercars on offer at RM's upcoming Lake Como sale is a very current 2010 Ferrari 599XX, featuring a 5,999-cubic centimetre, V-12 engine that produces a breathtaking 720 brake horsepower, which makes the 599XX one of the most powerful production-based Ferraris ever built. With only 29 examples produced, the model is also one of the rarest, and with its state-of-the-art technology, it was only ever intended to be driven at track events, and therefore, it was not homologated for legal road use. Amongst the long list of accolades won by the 599XX, it holds the lap-record for a production-derived sports car at the fearsome Nürburgring. The car on offer,chassis 170895, is the 25th example produced and has been owned by just one caretaker, and it has been maintained and stored at the Ferrari factory in Maranello since new (Estimate: €800,000–€1,100,000).

Having already announced the spectacular early consignments of the ex-works, Le Mans-contending 1953 Ferrari 340/375 MM Berlinetta and simply beautiful 1962 Ferrari 400 Superamerica SWB Coupé Aerodinamico, RM has since added a further 14 exquisite Ferraris to the upcoming 25 May sale, filling 16 of the auction's 40 lots with the Maranello marque's finest examples, in turn making the sale an absolute mecca for collectors and enthusiasts of the legendary Italian cars.
