If you happen to have the odd Ferrari F458 Italia lying in the garage, minus that all important thing called the engine, then this could well be your golden opportunity to saddle up that prancing horse.
RM Sotherby’s forthcoming Monaco sale will be held at the glamorous Grimaldi Forum, a venue synonymous with the principality’s most prestigious events. The Monaco auction will take place alongside the legendary Grand Prix de Monaco Historique.
A year previously takings exceeded a staggering €27.5 million and was topped by the sale of the 1951 Ferrari 340 America Touring Barchetta, which achieved an astounding €7.280.000.
Ferrari 458 Italia Engine With Stand
Yes, an engine. Not any old engine, this is a Ferrari 458 Italia Engine with Stand. A 4.5-litre naturally aspirated V-8 that will penetrate the most expensive ear defenders money can buy, reaching an ear-shattering 9,000 rpm, the first road-legal engine of its type to do so.
Unleashed at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show, this cutting edge technological machine was nothing short of spectacular.
Intact and complete, this particular power-plant was never allocated to a specific chassis and is presented in a virtual gold-seal condition. The engine is fully functioning and could be used for many reasons including project completion, spare acquisition, or even showcased for public interest.
