Automotive: 28 Rare Ferraris going on the auction block

Back in 2020, Marcel Petitjean auctioned off nearly 100 classic sports cars from his vast collection, but the former racing driver still has more gas in the tank, so to speak

The Frenchman is now sending some of his finest Ferraris under the gavel at RM Sotheby’s in Paris. The sale, which is fittingly titled the Petitjean Collection Part II, comprises 28 rare Prancing Horses that will each be offered without reserve on the evening of February 2. Of course, you can bid online, too.

Petitjean, who was a privateer racer during the late 1960s and early ’70s, started amassing an impressive collection of classic models as a long-term financial investment after he retired from the track. When his plans for an auto museum fell through, the 76-year-old decided to part ways with two-thirds of his collection in 2020, and, now a little more in 2022. As before, the majority of the cars on offer have been kept in storage at Petitjean’s home near Strasbourg rather than being regularly driven. As such, the rarified rides are presented in pristine condition. Read More at the Robb Report
