Ferrari’s long-awaited Purosanque SUV, scheduled for launch in early 2022, is not the marque’s first “family” car. Ferrari’s discontinued GTC4 Lusso was preceded by a number of “2+2” coupes; notably its 250 GTE Series, introduced in 1960. RM Sotheby’s will offer two at Scottsdale: a silver 1963 Series III and a red 1962 Series II.
Sometimes, a barn find yields rare gems, like this 1956 Maserati A6G/54 GranSport coupe, which is expected to bring $2.5-$3.25 million at the Gooding & Company Pebble Beach Auction in mid-August.

There’s no hybrid, but there will be coupe and convertible variants.
RM Sotheby’s will offer the Briggs Cunningham car at its Monterey auction later this month, with a pre-sale estimate of $700,000-$850,000. Cunningham was an American yacht and car racer and all-around wealthy guy, making this car a rare find.
