Two years after selling this Ferrari 335 S from the Mas du Clos collection for a record amount, French auctioneer will offer another great car from the estate of Pierre Bardinon at Retromobile in February. This is the, if possible, even more spectacular Ferrari 275 P; the very car that scored the outright win at Le Mans in 1964. This was the eighth of nine Ferrari wins in the classic endurance race and the very last scored by the factory team. Owned by the late Pierre Bardinon since the early 1970s, chassis 0816 could sell for a similar amount as the 335 S had done two years earlier.
With its mid-engined layout, the 275 P would have been right at home at the recent The Quail, a Motorsports Gathering where these machines starred in the dedicated 'Mid-Engined Marvels' class. Of the cars entered in the class, this ATS 2500 GTS also took the best of show award at the end of the day. Freshly restored, this was one of just two built with competition features that included a further tuned engine and aluminium body.
Group B rallying was also very well represented with this Lancia 037 Stradale and very rare Ferrari 308 GTB Group B. The Lancia was only just imported into the United States, having spent almost all its life in Japan and the Ferrari was one of just three fitted with the later four-valve engine, making it the fastest of the 308 rally cars.
