The F512 M is considered the Testarossa at its pinnacle, the last of Ferrari’s analog flat-12 supercars. After three decades, the car can still snap necks even while standing still. The F512 M continued the Testarossa / 512TR evolution, and Ferrari would make just 501 of this final version before sunsetting its flat-12 supercar series. Demand was high for the 75 cars sent to the U.S., and RM Sotheby’s Miami auction in December is offering #52, a two-owner model from the Youngtimer Collection with 10,200 miles. The pre-sale estimate is $400,000-$450,000.
Built 35 years ago, Porsche’s 959 is still considered king of the marque’s 911 line. Only 292 cars were made, with a price tag of $227,000, and Porsche reportedly lost money on each one. Broad Arrow Auctions is offering a 1987 Guards Red 959 Komfort at its Monterey Jet Center Auction, with a pre-sale estimate of $1.4 – $1.6 million.
LaFerrari was Ferrari’s first hybrid, and sold for $1.4 million in 2013. Today, these beautiful cars sells for $3 million at auctions. And it’s not “Ferrari LaFerrari,” just LaFerrari.
