Evaluation: From the Fox collection. Number 20 of 75 US market 512Ms and one of just 501 sold worldwide. Bought new by actor Lorenzo Lamas. Classiche certified. Showing 14,477 believable miles. The right headlight cover looks a little cloudy but the whole rest of the car is clean and clearly well cared for.
Bottom Line: The F12M is the final, the fastest, the rarest and the most refined version of the Testarossa series that spanned over a decade. It also marked the end of Ferrari’s flat-12 era. Good F512Ms can command nearly twice as much as the next most desirable in the series – the 512TR.
This isn’t a record price for a F512M but it’s close, and deservedly so for a car with significant mileage (by Ferrari standards) but wonderful presentation. A more used and less carefully kept example sold for just $229,600 over at Bonhams Quail Lodge, which just goes to show how much condition matters in this hobby.
