#NEWS We are pleased to reveal newly discovered information about the 1963 Ferrari 275 P, chassis no. 0816, and announce that the car will be presented exclusively with RM Sotheby’s Private Sales at Monterey this year. Well known as the overall winner of both the 24 Hours of Le Mans and 12 Hours of Sebring in 1964, we have have confirmed via factory documentation, and our close relationship with Ferrari Classiche, that 0816 also took victory at the 1963 Le Mans, making it the only Ferrari ever to have won the legendary 24 hour race twice. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ While 0816 was not scheduled to compete in 1963, Ferrari Classiche’s detailed documentation on the Scuderia Ferrari Works cars has confirmed that the original entrant (0814) was severely damaged in practice at Nürburgring just one month prior to Le Mans. Factory documentation shows the car was still being repaired during Le Mans, and rather than submit new paperwork for a replacement entry, Scuderia Ferrari simply sent 0816 to Le Mans, under 0814’s identity. This new information places 0816 amongst a mere handful of cars ever to have ever achieved the same feat. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Seldom-seen publicly, the 275 P has remained as part of Pierre Bardinon’s Mas du Clos Collection for the last 48 years. RM Sotheby’s Private Sales is extremely proud to present this car today in its highly original, never fully restored condition, retaining its matching-numbers engine, gearbox, and body. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For more information please contact the Private Sales department by visiting RMSothebys.com/PS00, where you can view the full portfolio of cars offered at this year’s Monterey auction. . 📸: @remidargegenphotographies

#TurboTuesday Ferrari 288 GTO 🇮🇹 The first example delivered to Japan, this car was part of the legendary collection of Yoshiho Matsuda for 25 years—a collection that included a trio of 250 GTOs, and was at the time considered the finest and most complete collection of Ferraris in the world. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Matsuda sold the car in 2010, at which time it showed just 9,500 km from new. The car has accumulated a scant 3,700 km since that time, and remains one of the finest examples of the 288 GTO extant. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For a full list of vehicles coming to #RMMonterey visit link in bio or RMSothebys.com/MO18
