#FerrariFriday: This 1992 Ferrari F40 will be offered at #rmameliaon 8-9 March WITHOUT RESERVE! . The very first production car to break the 200-mph barrier, the F40 was a landmark car in Ferrari’s storied history. It created in celebration of the company’s 40th birthday and it would be the very last model that Enzo Ferrari personally oversaw before his passing. Looking to its Formula 1 team for inspiration, Ferrari sought to make the F40 as lightweight as possible, pioneering the use of carbon fiber for its chassis and bodywork. In addition to its top speed of 201.4 mph, the F40 could sprint from 0–60 mph in just 3.8 seconds and rocket through the quarter-mile in 11.8 seconds. In the age of incredible advanced technologies, Ferrari stuck to the tried-and-true philosophy of reducing weight and adding power. . Formerly of the world-famous Duemila Ruote Collection, the European-specification Ferrari F40 offered here shows just 26,800 km on the odometer and comes equipped with upgraded suspensions and larger Brembo brakes, which made the car more stable at high speed and eliminate fading under heavy use and extended driving periods. . The finest birthday present Ferrari could have given itself, this F40 will fulfill any enthusiast’s need for speed. . See more info and register to bid at the link in our bio.

#NEWS: We are pleased to announce the addition of the esteemed Guyton Collection – comprising the cars and automobilia of the late Mr. Fred Guyton, ENTIRELY WITHOUT RESERVE – to our 2019 auction calendar! Set for 4-5 May at the collection site in St. Louis, Missouri, the auction will present Mr. Guyton’s 60 Veteran, Brass, and Classic Era automobiles fresh to the market, alongside hundreds of pieces of automobilia and collectibles. . Of the automobiles on offer, a trio of Classic Era highlights stand apart from the rest. These include: . ➡️ An incredibly rare and highly original 1930 Packard 734 Speedster Eight Phaeton, offered from just two owners since 1955. One of just five ever built, it is worthy of inclusion in the very best collections of American Classics . ➡️ A 1930 Duesenberg Model J Murphy Convertible Sedan, originally driven by Indy racer Leon Duray and stunningly restored by Chris Charlton. Complete with its original chassis, body, and engine, this Duesenberg comes to market having seldom been shown and providing a host of opportunities for its next owner. . ➡️ A 1930 Ruxton Model C Baker-Raulang Roadster, a well-known example of a pioneering front-wheel-drive American car, with known history from new. One of the rarest American Full Classics—a mere seven examples remain—a Ruxton Roadster is seldom available for public sale. . See more on the Guyton Collection at RMSothebys.com/GC19!

This #ValentinesDay, fall in love with this exquisite 1978 Porsche 911 gProgramm that will cross the block at #RMAmelia on 8-9 March. . This Porsche 911 has been given the full gProgramm treatment and received the nickname “Mercy.” The body was media-blasted to bare metal, treated for rust prevention, and painted a beautiful shade of Slate Grey. The car is powered by a 320-hp, 3.4-liter twin-plug engine featuring Weber down draft carburetors. It is also fitted with the optional Leistung Package. . Interestingly, this car was one of three gProgramm Porsches driven 3,500 miles from New York to California in 2017 for Luftgekühlt 4. . A wonderful bespoke creation, this gProgramm 911, the second example built, is the best of both worlds with its retro-inspired design and modern performance underpinnings. With less than 7,000 miles since the completion of the build, it has been fully sorted. One would be hard-pressed to find a Porsche Outlaw with such superior build quality. .

rmsothebys's Media: The Youngtimers are coming! Following global interest at our Paris sale, this 1979 Mercedes-Benz 50

The Youngtimers are coming! Following global interest at our Paris sale, this 1979 Mercedes-Benz 500 TE AMG is coming to #rmessenon 11-12 April when additional cars from #youngtimerCollection will cross the block! . AMG was far from a household name in the late 1970s and early 1980s, but the firm had established an excellent reputation for modifying Mercedes-Benzes. One of their earliest and most celebrated conversions was fitting the W123 chassis with a 5.0-litre V-8, costing a whopping 65,000 Deutsche Marks. It is rumored that only a pair of wagons, sedans and a single coupé were converted. . While its early history is not known, this example was discovered in early 2013 by Henric Nieminen, a California-based AMG enthusiast. It is believed that the car was built in period by AMG in the U.S. . The Mercedes-Benz was cosmetically refreshed in 2013 and was used by BBC America’s Top Gear America in a segment celebrating 50 years of AMG. In 2017, it was purchased by the current owner and has remained one of the highlights of his collection of pre-merger AMGs. .

Coming to #RMAmelia on 8-9 March, this impressive 1965 Shelby 427 Competition Cobra - one of 19 true production examples built, of which a mere handful retain their original body. . Chassis no. CSX 3006 claims significant period racing history, holding the record as only production 427 Cobra to win outright in a major European race (Brands Hatch) and having been piloted by some of the biggest names in sportscar racing including, Bob Bondurant, David Piper and Chris Irwin. . Restored by Legendary Motorcar Company to its 1966 Brands Hatch configuration and presented at the 2012 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, 2014 Concorso Villa D'Este, and 2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed, this car is considered one of the most significant factory Competition 427 Cobras in existence. .

The #RMAmelia digital catalogue is now live! . Headlining the sale is this stunning 1937 Bugatti 57SC Tourer by Corsica. . The Bugatti Type 57S was, on its own, a potent creation. With just over 40 production examples built, it added a significant increase in both hp and overall performance to the standard Type 57. Of total 57S production, just 16 examples were finished with open coachwork, making the car on offer at Amelia Island exceptionally rare and desirable by any standard. Add the fact that Corsica built just two four-seat tourer bodies, and the car becomes rarer still. . Adding the available “C” specification Roots-type supercharger early in the car’s life further raised the power output to 200 hp, enabling a top speed of 120-mph and making the 57SC the fastest French production car of the period. . Having formerly been a centerpiece in the Judge North, General Lyons and Blackhawk Collections, this car comes to Amelia Island equipped with its original chassis, engine, gearbox, and coachwork. .

#MondayMotivation: Fly through the rest of the week with Ferrari’s fastest and most expensive production car in period, a 1972 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona Berlinetta by Scaglietti! . Chassis no. 15717 comes to #RMAmelia as one of just 1,383 examples produced between 1968 and 1973. Built as a U.S.-specification version with air-conditioning, the car remained with its first owner in Southern California for almost 30 years. . Today, the Classiche-certified Daytona shows less than 70,000 miles on the odometer and retains its sleek black leather interior with grey carpets and fully operational air-conditioning. It also comes complete with attractive Borrani wire wheels, original warranty card, handbooks, and tool kit. . See more info and register to bid at the link in our bio!

#WeekendWarrior: This stunning, one-off 1991 RUF CR4 "Black Devil" is headed to #RMAmelia on 8-9 March! . Ishida Engineering commissioned two nearly identical models finished in Satin Black—save for one major mechanical difference. One would be a CR2, with rear-wheel drive, and the other was the all-wheel-drive CR4 offered here. . The RUF CR4 was fitted with three-spoke steering wheel, sports seats up front, jump seats in the rear, an upgraded center console with a storage bin, a high-power audio system, and special RUF gauges, including an 8,000-rpm tachometer and 300-km/h speedometer. So smitten with the black CR4 was Alois Ruf that he christened this car ""Diablo Negro"", or “Black Devil.” He even signed the underside of its front trunk saying so. . The CR4 spent most of its life in Japan. Ishida Engineering’s owner chose to keep it in his personal collection initially and used the car sparingly before it passed through a handful of other Japanese owners. In 2016, Diablo Negro was imported to the U.S. . Upon completing its journey across the Pacific, the CR4 was treated to a full servicing in California. Its only modifications from when it left RUF’s operations are a Porsche Classic in-dash navigation system and softer front struts for more comfortable driving, although the original struts are included with the car. This rare RUF CR4 shows in excellent condition with limited signs of use, showing just 92,000 km from new, and includes its original manuals in English and Japanese, tool set, air compressor, and spare tire. .
