    3413GT is one of 7 S2 bodied cars, 4 of which were S1 GTOs re-bodied by Scaglietti in period and one of only 2 with the long roof with the other one being 4675GT. The 5 other S2 bodied cars have a short roof, 3 of which have an integrated roof spoiler.

    Why do you feel it’s in the wrong section? It is in the vintage section where it belongs.

    Simple, because this thread is clearly about marketing of a Vintage Ferrari and there clearly is a specific sub-forum for that on this site and I feel it belongs there, not in this section.

    This is the section for enthusiasts of vintage Ferrari's, the 250 GTO being the greatest of them all. I sincerely doubt that anyone on this thread is a viable candidate to bid for a $50,000,000+ car. If there is, I'd love for them to contribute to the conversation. It's a bit of a stretch to say we're marketing the car. The fact that one is coming to auction is a rare and remarkable occasion that we should all enjoy and discuss.

    On the one hand, yes, they are getting ahead of themselves. On the other hand, I'm sure they are right, if not being conservative. It's a 250 GTO, it's at Monterey and the economy is hot. I'm sure it will do that number and then some. But, we'll see. Either way, that room will be electric when that car goes on the block.

    As far as I've seen it being billed as the most "valuable," car to come to auction by RM themselves. Big difference. Value isn't dependent on the car selling, its an innate quality. Whether the car sells or not it is still more valuable than #3851GT. It will also be the most expensive IF it sells. As they indicated the car should go for over $45 million so I think its safe to say the reserve is at least that much.

    My guess is that anyone who is seriously in the realm to acquire a car at that level, knowing how rare the opportunity is to do so, will be prepared to shell it out that night. I also think the atmosphere can get to people.

    It will very likely be the most valuable car sold at auction.

    Fantastic race history, almost as good as it race history gets for a GTO. As far I understand, never in a major accident. Interesting to see where is goes compared to the rumored 65M price of last GTO. Some can argue S2 very slightly less valued that S1, but can easily argue it’s the same.
    I remember sitting with a friend bidding on a lemans winner, when 1/10 of what this car will bring was a shocker. Amazing where we are now. Will be Epic to watch.

    Can`t understand why owners such as Mr. Whitten do not correct the mistakes on this caliber-cars...! They surely can pay the body-shop!
    This completely wrong radiator opening does not match to the design of this great car.

    I am no expert, but one thing to keep in mind how common it was for these cars to change body parts in their early lives. Also, this car was sent back to the factory in 1964 and underwent a body conversion from Series 1 to Series 2. So, what may seem like an incorrect front may have a deeper story. I'm sure someone like Marcel can explain with greater knowledge.

    The front end treatment of the car in the older photo is more elegant, but as RC1 said, there may be more to the story, as the car went back to the factory back in the day.

    In any event, this will be exciting! :)
