    Sorry to say but - although you didn't include a photo - this is not the new showroom, this is actually the OLD showroom. The new showroom is located along the main street at Hardstrasse 15 in Basel.

    Here's a photo showing 1018 in the old showroom at official dealership Niki Hasler AG in Basel, Switzerland.
    I took this photo Friday, 27th April 2018.

    If not mistaken there is apparently some research happening on the race histories of N°1006 and N°1028. It is not all that difficult, but past reports have clouded certain issues. BTW both cars N°1006 and N°1028 are Ferrari Classiche Certified confirming the originality of the chassis, engine, gearbox and major components. Naturally not the racing histories.

    What is the market value of a 512? $5m? $10m?

    The best are nearly $20 million, any genuine car is $10 minimum, provenance and race history is a pro rata value between those two limits. Some have asked even more for theirs but that's the current value spectrum for them.

    Really? More than a 250lm? Wow.

    There is quite a difference between an asking price and what you actually get at the end of the day.
    And a proper 250 LM for sure is worth more than a 512 S/M.

    Any legitimate 250LM with a proven original chassis would be $15 million, a great original, competition car would be around $20 - 25 million (#5907 maybe), even one of the two Stradales might push these numbers. That said there are very few 250LMs that are totally original, even fewer that have great racing histories so they are unicorns. Maybe one or two cars total. Now your comparable 512S/M is approx 5 - 10 million below the 250LM level with a similar number of truly great, no stories examples and few with superb race histories AND great provenance. It was always a given that a 512S/M is half the price of the equivalent Porsche 917 and great Gulf 917s are about $25 - 30 million and while the gap has narrowed, this still equated to $12 - 15 million so figure perhaps $15 - 18 million on a good day. Hell most cars of any type typically either have total originality OR great race history and cars that combine both really are needles in haystacks or unicorns.

    Hello Steve, I might be blind but I just looked online at the three past issues, current included and could not see the ad, can you clarify? Thanks.

    Thanks Marcel, I thought it would be John G.'s car that of my very first article back in 1992. Had a nice phone chat with him this summer but did not realize he had advertised it.
