Chassis No. 9781; Engine No. 9781. Grigio Ferro over gray leather with a black cloth top. 3967-cc, 300-hp V-12. 5-speed manual. Chrome-spoke polished-rim Borrani wire wheels, Michelin X blackwalls. Power windows, halogen headlights, owner’s manual, full tool roll, and Ferrari Classiche Red Book certification.

EVALUATION : Recent restoration | Cavallino Platinum award 2017–19. One of 99 built as a droptop. Known history from new, original chassis, engine, and body. Restored in 2016 in the present colors and materials with beautiful clearcoat paint, bright chrome, and inviting interior. The underside is as clean and fresh as the top. The engine compartment is beautiful, fresh, dry, and clean. Impeccable restoration and preservation of one of the prettiest of all open Ferraris.

BOTTOM LINE : Sold by RM at Monterey in 2015 for an undisclosed amount (reported to be just over $2 million) and offered by RM at Monaco in 2016, where it was reportedly bid to €1.8 million (about $2.03 million at the time). The result here is indicative of a general softening in top-end Ferrari V-12s in the past five years, a result that will not please the other 98 330 GTS owners, but is realistic in the present environment and comparable with the 330 GTS s/n 10111 sold by Gooding & Company a day later for $1,985,000 (its bright-yellow color earning a “Giallo premium” over the subtle gray of this car).
