Ferrari LM hero for sale
One of the most historically important Ferrari sports-prototypes is the latest car to be offered by RM Sotheby’s recently established Private Sales division. The ex-pierre Bardinon 1963 275P, chassis 0816, most famously won at Le Mans and Sebring in 1964, but recent research by Ferrari Classiche has revealed that it is the only Prancing Horse to have won twice at La Sarthe.
Detailed documentation in the factory archive (C&SC, Summer 2017) has confirmed that the origi- nal entry, chassis 0814, was severely damaged at the Nürburgring shortly before Le Mans in ’63 and so, rather than submit new paperwork to the ACO, the Scuderia sent 0816 to France under 0814’s identity. Aside from its unprecedented competition history, the matchingnumbers 275P has also spent the past 48 years in the legendary Mas du Clos collection so, needless to say, you’ll need the deepest of pockets to become its next custodian.
