In lieu of the annual Monterey sale, RM Sotheby's will stage the online-only Shift/Monterey sale. Among the consignments already announced are a pair of truly spectacular Ferrari GT racers. The most recent of the two is this 550 GTS Maranello, which is one of the ten examples built by Prodrive and ran by Care Racing. Despite being developed with privateer backing only, these V12 engined machines were successful at Le Mans, in the FIA GT Championship and also in the ALMS. The chassis consigned is the second car built and it was raced on both sides of the Atlantic. Its best results came in the FIA GT Championship with an outright victory in the 2004 Spa 24 Hours as the crowning achievement. Currently only three other examples are in private hands and this is the first time a 550 GTS Maranello has been consigned to an auction. This is reflected in the $3.85 - $4.85 million estimate.
Also turned into a racing car without help from the factory is this mighty 365 GTB/4 Daytona. It was built to Group 4 specifications by Holman & Moody for owner Kirk F. White. The V12 was modified by Traco and reportedly was among the most powerful of all Daytona competition engines. Sadly, chassis 14065 was only raced once in period, retiring from the 1972 Sebring 12 Hours. Now meticulously restored to its Sebring colours, this truly menacing machine can be yours for $2.2 - $2.75 million.
