BLENHEIM, Ontario (June 27, 2012) – RM Auctions, the world’s largest collector car auction house for investment-quality automobiles, is delighted to announce the consignment of the stunning and exceptionally rare 1956 Ferrari 250 GT LWB Berlinetta ‘Tour de France,’ chassis 0585 GT, to its highly anticipated Monterey sale, August 17–18 in California.
Specially handpicked by RM specialists for the August sale, the magnificent TdF joins an outstanding roster of more than a dozen milestone Ferraris poised for RM’s 2012 Monterey podium. The remarkable offering, which also includes the previously announced, multi-million-dollar Ferrari 410 S Berlinetta, further consolidates RM’s reputation as the global leader in the presentation of important and historic Ferraris at auction.
“Following the enormously successful sale of the Ferrari 625 TRC for its West Coast owner at our Monaco auction last month, we are delighted to have been entrusted with another wonderful, California-based Ferrari for our Monterey sale—this time a coveted 250 GT Tour de France,” says Shelby Myers, Managing Director, RM California. “The Tour de France is one of Ferrari’s most celebrated models. The car on offer—a 14-louvre example—is particularly exciting, as it is among the rarest and most sought after of TdF’s and comes fresh to the market, offered for the first time in 14 years.”
