Will the 812 GTS be Ferrari’s final front-engine, naturally aspirated V-12 spider? Based on the appropriately named 812 Superfast Berlinetta, the 812 GTS shares a lineage with a line of classic open Ferraris, including the magnificent 365 GTS/4 Daytona Spider of the early ’70s. The 812 GTS has a retractable hardtop roof and a 789-horsepower 6.5-liter V-12. Bonhams’ Scottsdale auction is offering a 2021 812 GTS with just 217 miles.
Here’s your opportunity to bid on a very important part of Ferrari history. A one-of-a-kind 1961 Ferrari 400 Superamerica Series I Coupé Aerodinamico, originally owned by Italian nobleman Count Giovanni Volpi di Misurata will be auctioned by Gooding & Company at Pebble Beach, with a pre-sale estimate of $4M-$5M for this rare gem, described as “perhaps the finest original and best-preserved example extant.”
Ferrari revealed its new F8 Spider and 812 GTS near the start of fall. Both are regular production Ferraris and the 812 GTS has no production limit and is based on the 812 Superfast.
The Ferrari 550 Barchetta Pininfarina provides a more accessible version, one that bears watching for rising values. At its January 2018 Scottsdale sale, RM Sotheby’s will offer a 2001 example (Lot #266) showing just 9,500 miles, with a pre-sale estimate of $475,000-$525,000.
