    He has both 0360 AM and 0364 AM.
    That website is incorrect.

    I would describe 012 I as 166 SC "Touring Barchetta" by Fontana.

    Add 006 (Dino 206 SP Spider bought at Monaco 2012).

    No SP race car yet in the collection, he needs one for sure. 0798 at RMS Monterey in three weeks perhaps?

    Indeed, #0798 is already red isn't it. I like the RMS Monterey comment, anything like RMS Titanic? LOL

    The Taikang life insurance company in China is now Sotheby’s largest shareholder, having increased its stake in the auction house to 13.5 percent, according to a stock exchange filing.

    Taikang is run by Chen Dongsheng, who founded China Guardian, the country’s first government-run auction house, and is married to Mao Zedong’s granddaughter, Kong Dongmei. In 2013, the duo appeared on a popular list of China’s wealthiest families and individuals, with a fortune estimated at five billion yuan ($815 million). Taikang has made seven share purchases in July alone.
    This brings the value of Taikang’s Sotheby’s shares to $233 million, ahead of investors like Third Point, founded by Daniel S. Loeb, and Black Rock.

    Fascinating but the key point is Mr Wexner is a former board member and key shareholder of Sothebys inc. Possibly RM/Sothebys biggest client too. As discussed here;

    I can recognise the high level of this collection but
    what is the motivation for this collection?
    I mean if Obrist want s to have at his time one of the most representative collection of F cars, or Bardinon tries to collect the best collection with great palmarès cars...what L.Wexner trying to do? Any idea?

    Nothing discernible I can see, beyond 'buy as many as you can and paint 'em red'... at least from where I'm sitting.

    Sometimes it s necesary to give a direction to a collection, or at the end you lost your own motivation.

    This is apparently the (ridiculous) goal when you copy a car and try to sell it by using the fame and history of the real car copied... o_O

    A "famous"/infamous California-based (non-official!) Ferrari dealer told me in the 1980's already: "There's is always a fool somewhere on the planet, all you have to do is to find him."
