FI­NAL FER­RARI TO WIN LE MANS COULD SELL FOR US$38M

National Post (Latest Edition) - - POST DRIVING - Stanislav Nachev, Driv­ing. ca

The iconic 1964 Fer­rari 275P, prob­a­bly the most de­sir­able Fer­rari of all time, is the last of­fi­cial ‘works’ Fer­rari to have raced and won at Le Mans. It will also be sold at Artcu­rial’s Mo­tor­cars auc­tion next Fe­bru­ary in Paris, po­ten­tially beat­ing the 1962 Fer­rari 250 GTO that sold for US$38.1 mil­lion in 2014 and setting the record for the world’s most valu­able Fer­rari. “This Fer­rari 275P rep­re­sents the ul­ti­mate and the truly ex­cep­tional,” Matthieu Lamoure, man­ag­ing direc­tor of Artcu­rial Mo­tor­cars, said. The 275P (the P des­ig­na­tion mean­ing the car is a pro­to­type) is the one en­tered in the Le Mans en­durance race by Fer­rari’s fac­tory team. Af­ter the 275P won Le Mans in 1964, it raced three times at the Road Amer­ica 500, fol­lowed by the 12 Hours of Se­bring in 1965.
