A Ferrari 550 GT1 Prodrive has become the most valuable ever sold in a dedicated online collector car auction, selling for a staggering $4,290,000.
The 19 year old Ferrari was part of the RM Sotheby’s ‘Shift/Monterey’ sale and is the second of twelve Ferrari 550 GT1 program commissioned by Care Racing Development to Prodrive; arguably one of the most illustrious of them all.
24 Hours of Spa
In a competitive career spanning more than four years, it competed in 49 races, taking 15 pole positions, 14 outright race wins including The 24 Hours of Spa in 2004, making it the last V-12 engined Ferrari to win a 24-hour race overall, and finishing on the podium some 29 times.
The Italian star was presented in its Spa 2004 livery, CRD 002 goes to its next custodian in fully rebuilt, race-ready condition, accompanied by its full race log and mileage charts, which were maintained by Care Racing Development and Prodrive, and the Red-White Stripe Book “Certificazione per Veicoli da Competizione”, confirming its Ferrari Classiche certification.
The sale also saw excellent results for additional Ferraris, including the desirable first-generation ‘short-nose’, Classiche certified 1965 Ferrari 275 GTB by Scaglietti, presented in fully restored, concours condition and equipped with its original engine, which brought $1,980,000; a low-mileage, Classiche certified 1991 Ferrari F40, one of 213 examples delivered to the United States and retaining all of its major original factory components, which sold for $1,386,000.
