For as low as $6.5 million, you could be the proud owner of three Ferrari Formula One cars that all competed in official Grand Prix races.
Firstly is a 1978 Ferrari 312 T3 that was raced by drivers Carlos Reutemann and Gilles Villeneuve from 1978-1979, taking home the spoils at the 1978 British Grand Prix with Reutemann behind the wheel.
Bonhams, the auction house from which the car is being sold from, is listing the 3-liter flat-12 cylinder powered car at no reserve, but expects it to sell from $1.5 million - $2 million USD.
Likewise is the price range for Villeneuve’s 1979 Ferrari, which took the French-Canadian to the top step of the podium at the 1979 South African and Long Beach Grand Prix, reports Bonhams.com.
The two aforementioned Ferraris are expected to go on auction on August 14 and 15 respectively.
For those who don’t like the auction-style way of selling and would prefer to just purchase a Formula One-raced Ferrari outright, there is Rubens Barrichello’s 2001 F2001 for sale.
The duPont Registry lists the 3-liter 10-cyclinder powered car at $3.4 million USD.
This car (pictured at top of article) is the one that Barrichello drove home to a second-place finish at the 2001 Monaco Grand Prix behind teammate Michael Schumacher.
So, if you ever wanted to build up a Ferrari Formula One collection and you have a few million dollars lying around, now might be a good time to start.
