Ferrari 500 Superfast – Sammlung

Das Höchste

Die Geschichte der Ferrari 500 Superfast haben wir schon ausführlich erzählt, hier. Dort haben wir auch alle Chassis-Nummern aufgeführt – es würde also nicht so recht passen, wenn wir die Sammlung gleich direkt dort anfügen würden, es würde den Erzählfluss stören. Und es ist ja auch einfacher, wenn wir die Collection jederzeit aktualisieren können. Ja, wir haben mehr, ja, wir wissen auch Genaueres zu Original-Farben und Besitzern, doch wir begnügen uns hier einmal mit dem Wesentlichen; irgendwann gehen wir dann in die Tiefe. Man beachte unterdessen: keine zwei Fahrzeuge sind gleich. Das Bild oben stammt von 8459 SF.

Dieses Fahrzeug erhält definitiv zu wenig Liebe, es kommt schon wieder unter den Hammer, diesmal bei Gooding & Co. auf Amelia Island. Der Schätzpreis beläuft sich auf 2 bis 2,5 Millionen Dollar, angeboten wird es mit folgendem Text: «Bearing chassis 6043, it is the 11th of the scant 36 examples built. Lavishly wealthy Lord James Edward Hanson, the famed British business magnate who courted both Joan Collins and Audrey Hepburn, ordered this Ferrari to his precise specifications. Having just attended the Geneva salon, where the 500 Superfast was unveiled, Lord Hanson was duly impressed with the exclusive new Ferrari model and made detailed handwritten notes on the Pininfarina information packet for the car, which are on file. Within his notes, he expressed his desire for special features including a Verde Scuro (Dark Green) paint finish over Black leather upholstery – it would be the only Superfast to be finished in this elegant combination. Befitting his station in life, the invoice for Lord Hanson’s new Ferrari totaled over 12,000,000 lire, about $20,000, more than double the price of a new Rolls-Royce, and the most expensive car offered at that time by any manufacturer. Remarkably, Lord Hanson retained ownership of his beloved Superfast from 1965 to 2000, easily making him the longest-term original owner of the model. He domiciled the car at Pininfarina’s Torino, facilities for his use on the continent during much of the 1965 to 1972 period; however, his business and travel commitments kept him from driving and the car registered less than 10,000 miles during his ownership. When he realized that most of the mileage being added in the ensuing years was solely in pursuit of the car’s annual MOT inspection, he decided in 2000, at long last, to offer it for sale. That December, 6043, then showing just 12,288 miles, was acquired by noted Dutch coachbuilt Ferrari collector Edgar Schermerhorn. Documented outings included the 3rd Concours d’Elegance Paleis Het Loo, held in September 2001, with the Ferrari awarded a well-deserved Best of Show, followed by exhibition at the Louis Vuitton Bagatelle Concours d’Elegance held in Paris. Subsequent exhibitions included the January 2002 MEC Show in Maastricht, Holland, and the 2nd European Concours d’Elegance held that July at Castle Schwetzingen near Heidelberg, Germany. During Mr. Schermerhorn’s tenure, 6043 was also featured in Sports Car Market magazine publisher Keith Martin’s 2004 book, Keith Martin on Collecting Ferrari, as well as the June/July 2005 issue of Cavallino magazine, and the December 2005 edition of the German magazine, Ferrari World. Just prior to its acquisition by noted collector Martin Gruss in May 2009, the Superfast was accorded Ferrari Classiche certification, and its Red Book was issued. During 2009–2010, the Ferrari was serviced for Mr. Gruss by the marque experts at Paul Russell and Company. Further displays at top venues include the 2010 XIX Cavallino Classic, the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, and the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, both in 2011, followed by participation in the 2011 Italia Classica Ferrari Gran Tour to Venezia and 2012 Louis Vuitton Classic Monte Carlo-Serenissima Run. As offered, 6043 benefits most handsomely from the knowledgeable ownership it has enjoyed from new, including proper care and sparing use. Desirable upgrades include fitment of air-conditioning, an auxiliary cooling fan, a matched pair of Heuer Rally timers mounted to the wooden dash, and electric power steering for touring enjoyment. Just 20,065 miles were displayed at the time of cataloguing».

8459 SF:

Motoren-Nummer: 70 SA

Auktionen: RM Sotheby’s, Monterey 2018, Schätzpreis 1’750’000 bis 2’000’000 Dollar.

8565 SF:

Auktionen: RM Sotheby’s, Monterey 2010, verkauft für 1’127’500 Dollar. Und wieder RM Sotheby’s, Arizona 2023, Schätzpreis 2’200’000 bis 2’800’000 Dollar, angeboten mit folgendem Text: «According to the research of marque authority Marcel Massini, chassis number 8565 SF is the 34th of 36 total examples built, though numerically it is the ninth of 12 second-series examples, and the fourth-from-last car built. Entering Pininfarina’s Turin plant in November 1965, the car was appointed with air conditioning, power windows, and power steering, and it was finished in Bleu Sera paint over an interior upholstered in Grigio Vaumol leather from Connolly. After completing assembly in April 1966, the Ferrari was sold new to John Von Neumann, the legendary racing impresario and importer, instrumental in popularizing European sports cars in the western United States. A peer of contemporary influential importers like Max Hoffman and Luigi Chinetti, Von Neumann was a founding member of the California Sports Car Club and may be best known for catapulting the 250 GT California Spider to such success, in addition to campaigning a well-known Testa Rossa (among many other notable cars).
In April 1973, the Superfast was purchased by “Chargin’” Charlie Hayes, an upstart American racing driver who flirted with success during the 1970s, often championing American horsepower before eventually joining William McKelvy’s Scuderia Bear. Hayes soon advertised the 500 in Road & Track magazine, and by the end of the decade the car was sold to the Hollywood-based dealer Sal di Natale. During the decade the engine was replaced with another correct Superfast motor, number 8083 (although the original mill would be reunited with the car two decades later). In 1979, the Ferrari was acquired by Charles Borin of Calabasas, California, and he repainted the car red and reupholstered the interior in tan leather. Borin retained possession for 12 years before the car passed to the esteemed dealer Ed Waterman of Fort Lauderdale, Florida. In 1993, the Ferrari’s original engine, number 8565 SF, was reinstalled in this Superfast, contributing to the car’s optimal authenticity. A full restoration was conducted at this time, including a repaint of the coachwork in dark blue and trimming of the interior with cognac leather. Sold in 2002 to Charles Morse of Seattle, Washington, the Superfast was displayed at the 2003 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, winning the Ferrari class. Ten months later the car was spotted in attendance at the Palm Beach Cavallino Classic. In January 2004, Morse sold the Ferrari to the late Dr. Ervin “Bud” Lyon of Kensington, New Hampshire, long recognized as one of New England’s most significant collectors. Mr. Lyon presented the car at the 2005 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, where it scored 95 out of a possible 100 points during judging, and in January 2006 the car was exhibited at the Cavallino Classic. Later in 2006, chassis number 8565 SF was treated to a comprehensive refurbishment by the highly respected Paul Russell and Company in Essex, Massachusetts and, on the back of this work, the Superfast was presented at Amelia Island in March 2007, winning the prestigious Amelia Award. In September 2008, Mr. Lyon sold the Ferrari to a collector based in Oregon, who displayed the car at the 2009 Rodeo Drive Concours d’Elegance in Beverly Hills before engaging Francorchamps of America and Ferrari of Beverly Hills to conduct additional mechanical work. When offered at RM Sotheby’s flagship Monterey sale in August 2010, the Ferrari had reportedly accrued no more than 400 miles. Acquired by the consignor later that year, the Superfast has been driven very little since, spending most of the last 12 years in climate-controlled storage. In preparation for the current offering, the car has recently undergone a light freshening to accommodate basic operational condition. It should be noted that the paintwork has considerably aged since the 2006 restoration and in some areas displays lifting and crazing. It is also important to note that the car retains mechanical stampings that indicate the continued presence of the matching-numbers chassis and the rare type 208 engine.»
