Chassis no. VF9SW3V33NM795018. Black Carbon and Jet Orange over Beluga Black leather and Alcantara with Jet Orange accents. 7993/1578hp quad-turbo W16, 7-speed semi-auto with magnesium paddle shifters, special Michelin PAX run-flat tires.

Evaluation: From the Gran Turismo Collection. Although only handed over to the owner this January, it has already been driven 1416 miles, unsurprising given the other cars out of this collection. It’s one of 30 Sport 300+s built, named for the model’s record 304.773 mph top speed run. Light use take little away from the fact that this is still a practically new car, and one of the fastest in the world.

Bottom Line: The most expensive car of this auction by over £2M. The laws of depreciation don’t work the same in the upper stratosphere of ultra-exclusive hypercars as they do for family sedans. While it’s not clear exactly how much this car cost as delivered, somewhere around the £4Mis a reasonably guess given the configuration and the price, right in the middle of the estimate range, should work for all parties.

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
