X-ALBORETO FORMULA 1 FERRARI

EX-ALBORETO FORMULA 1 FERRARI AND A NEARLY-NEW ‘NARROW BODIED’ 1989 PORSCHE 911 SPEEDSTER ANNOUNCED FOR BONHAMS PARIS SALE

A DUO OF RARE AND STUNNING MOTOR CARS JOIN THE LINE UP AT THE GRAND PALAIS

 

The 1984 Ferrari 126 C4/M2 is one of the last Ferrari Formula 1 cars that can be raced and maintained without official ‘Ferrari Clienti’ team support.

 

Driven throughout the 1984 F1 World Championship season by Michele Alboreto, who finished fourth, the Ferrari also starred in the 1984-5 Ferrari Yearbook, which features the year’s most influential models.

 

After Alboreto’s sixth-place finish in chassis 072 at the Monaco Grand Prix, the carbon fibre chassis was then modified extensively by Ferrari’s English engineer, Harvey Postlethwaite.

 

At the end of the season after just four Grand Prix races it was retired and went to a collector, where it remained unused until last year.

 

Certified by ‘Ferrari Classiche’ and carrying an estimate of €400,000 – 600,000, Chassis 072 is in full working condition and can be raced using just two mechanics, as has been the case with its most recent custodian.

 

 

Also offered in the sale is the 1989 Porsche 911 Speedster, which is one of a mere 171 of its kind built.

 

The ‘narrow body’ 911 Speedster model was bought new by the current owner from the Porsche Center in Stockholm in 1989 and has been kept in single private ownership in Sweden for the past 25 years.

 

Remarkably, the two-seater convertible has fewer than 650km on the clock and, as a result of its rare usage, the engine and bodywork remains untouched.

The ‘as new’ Speedster has an estimate of €100,000 – 150,000.

 

""Philip Kantor, Bonhams head of department for Motor Cars Europe, said: “Rarely do we see Formula 1 cars of the turbo era certified, ‘on the button’ and in suchgood condition, and low production iconic sports cars with so few miles on the clock – we are delighted to be able to unveil these two rarities in the suitably grandiose surroundings of Grand Palais.”

The cars will feature at Bonhams Paris Sale at the Grand Palais on 6 February 2014.
