1964 250 LM Ferrari for auction

With this countdown underway to the much-anticipated event ‘Ferrari Leggenda e Passione’ this weekend , RM Auctions, in association with the Sotheby, announce the inclusion of a big prix winning 1964 250 LM Ferrari to the auction line-up. The ultra-desirable example will now be only one of over 45 of the rarest, most sought after road and race Ferraris in the world to cross the block on 18th May Sunday at the legendary Ferrari plant in Maranello, Italy. So, the auction will present also a series of memorabilia taken from the famed Ferrari Francorchamps Collection of Jacques Swaters.

“The 250 LM is one of the most highly sought after of all Ferraris, and the example offered here is one of the best examples of the 250 LM and the first to be offered by RM Auctions since 2002,” says Max Girardo, the Managing Director of RM’s European Operations, referring to s/n 5845GT.

“Eligible for the most prestigious competitions, such as the Shell/Ferrari Historic Challenge series, it is certainly one of the most desirable, exciting Ferraris in existence. Its upcoming sale presents an exclusive ownership opportunity,” he continued.
