The third and final auction of the Retromobile week was the official sale staged as always by local specialists Artcurial. The full results have yet to be published but with a reported sales total of close to 23 million makes it the highest grossing auction this of the Retromobile week.
Topping the sale was this Ferrari 275 GTB. This early short-nose example was fitted with six carburettors from new and was raced extensively by its successive Swiss owners. In fact, it is the 275 GTB largest period competition record of all. Offered for the first time in two decades 06785 found a new owner for just over 2.5 million.
Another Ferrari that did well was a fabulous example of the 126 C3 Grand Prix car as raced during the 1983 season. This was the very first Ferrari with a full carbon-fibre composite monocoque and would be the last to win a constructors' world championship until 1999. Chassis 068 was driven to victory in the Dutch Grand Prix by Rene Arnoux. Sold for just over 1.4 million, the rare Ferrari Grand Prix car eclipsed the top estimate.
This evening, Ferrari became the first team to launch their 2020 Formula 1 car. It is dubbed the SF1000, which is a reference to 1000th Grand Prix the Scuderia Ferrari will compete in this year. Like last year, the team's drivers are Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc.
