    May I suggest to do the homework, please. Descriptions can occasionally be a bit over-enthusiastic.
    4085 GT was at the Bonhams auction in Scottsdale January 2018. It has a non-matching engine and the actual engine number has been filed off. Previously it had another engine which had been restamped into 3105. It's been shopped around the planet for almost two years now.

    Price seems a tad optimistic for a car that was sold for less than half that figure in January 2018.

    Is there any solid evidence that Enzo Ferrari even sat in this car, let alone used it as his personal transport? Neither the current advert, nor the Bonhams description seem very convincing on that point.

    As said before: "Descriptions can occasionally be a bit over-enthusiastic."

    Marcel:

    You might consider offering your services to the auction houses. I'm sure they would pay handsomely for your knowledge. However once they had the information they would promptly bury it deeply and profoundly under the wreckage of the Titanic.

    Cheers

    I don't think there is a reputable auction house that does NOT use his services. ;)
