Artcurial Motorcars are kicking 2014 off with a bang by holding a two-part auction at Salon Retromobile, to be held over the 7th and 8th of February in 2014.

Day one will see the auction of one hundred collectors’ cars, including a collection of important Ferraris, while day two will present some sixty Alfa Romeos. Let’s take a look at some of our favourite Ferraris.

FERRARI 166 MM Barchetta

1953 Ferrari 166 MM Barchetta by Oblin #0300M

Complete with original chassis, drive train, engine and body built by Oblin, this immaculate and extremely rare ’53 Ferrari 166 MM Barchetta has exensive European and South American racing history and will be a highlight of the auction.

1953 Abbate Motoscafo Ferrari 2800cc Racing Hydroplane “Antares II”

This mighty machine isn’t standard fare for us, but is far too awesome to overlook. Built by Guido Abbate in 1953, this wooden-framed hydroplane was raced in Italy in 1954 and 1955.

And the connection to classic racing cars? How about a Ferrari Squalo four-cylinder 2800cc Formula One engine!

FERRARI 500 Superfast

1964 Ferrari 500 Superfast

The fourth out of just thirty six cars, this incredibly rare Ferrari has less than 60,000 kilometres on the clock and retains its factory Blue Chiaro livery and black leather interior and is in absolutely immaculate condition. A stunning, super-rare classic.

Ferrari F40

1991 Ferrari F40

To close – a boyhood dream. The Ferrari F40.

This particular car was sold new to Pierluigi Martini, an Italian Formula One driver who began his 124 race career substituting for Ayrton Senna in a Toleman TG184. It’s in great condition, and I want it.
