RM Sotheby’s is the quintessential auction house when it comes to the absolute best in rare and classic cars going up for sale. While the world renowned auction house has some amazing individual auctions on the go, on the odd occasion the outfit is tasked with selling off a complete collection of cars that someone can make an overall offer on if finances allow, otherwise it will be broken down into each car and sold off separately giving owners the chance to pick and choose which special cars will be the perfect addition to their existing collections. Often big car collections are actually owned by a company or a group of investors, but in the case of this amazing 18-car collection known as the Gran Turismo Collection, it’s a one-owner affair. The owner’s name is undisclosed, even a healthy session on Google didn’t give any details, but whoever the person is, he/she/they/them has impeccable taste. It also sounds like the collection is bigger than the 18 cars going under the hammer, which is a mind-blowing thought. The Ferraris that are up for sale make up what collectors have dubbed “The Big 5” thanks to the inclusion of some of Ferrari’s most iconic models.
The collection is touted to bring in a minimum of £29 700 000, or R608 888 439.29 in SA government tender speak. That’s more than the national debt of some countries. “This is certainly one of the most remarkable single-owner collections of supercars to be offered in Europe.It represents a cross section of supercars and GTs which are at the zenith of desirability in today’s market. The Group B rally cars are an additional, remarkable highlight, perfectly encapsulating the peak of rallying’s most extreme era.” comments Michael Squire - Director of Research at RM Sotheby’s.
