THE word barn­find is so overused that its mean­ing has be­come di­luted. In 99 per cent of cases it is more likely to be ap­plied to a bro­ken Mk3 Ford Es­cort on ebay. So the bring­ing to mar­ket of the Bail­lon Col­lec­tion by auc­tion house Artcu­rial in 2015 was a cen­tury’s worth in one hit: 100 cars stashed for years on a French ship­ping mag­nate’s es­tate. Many were rare or valu­able, but none could hold a can­dle to the 1961 Fer­rari 250GT Cal­i­for­nia Spi­der, one of the rarest and most de­sir­able cars ever built and with­out ques­tion the car of the past 15 years.
