Last Ferrari to win Le Mans to be auctioned
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.
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. After that, Pierre Bardinon, a Ferrari collector, added it to his fleet.
Since 2012, cars from his collection have slowly been sold off to other private owners.
