Ferrari Classiche-division as successful as sales new cars
Ferrari Classiche is an amazingly prosperous division of the sports cars-brand from Maranello. This department, founded in 2006, is one of the reasons why Ferraris are more popular and more valuable than ever at auctions. A permanent workplace with an enormous historical archive at its disposal is continuously working on several projects commissioned by Ferrari-owners from all over. There are more and more projects every year.
At this very moment, they are working on 24 rare and less rare Ferraris. Five of those are wearing the initials ‘250 GTO’, which are true pieces of art. Only 36 of these were made from 1962 up to 1964, and they are now one of the most valuable cars on earth. Mind you, the 250 Testa Rossa, which is now also being worked on, would set you back a small fortune as well. This car was driven by Phil Hill in the 24 hours of Le Mans in 1958, and he won it. Other projects are a 500 TR from 1956 and a sport-prototipo 512 M from 1971.
Up to today, Ferrari Classiche has completed more than 60 restoration projects and handed out more than 3.800 certificates of authenticity. Thanks to an archive with numerous drawings, the firm was able to reconstruct lots of components down to the smallest detail, among which 25 V12-engine blocks. Maserati Classiche has been brought to life as well, meaning old models of this glorious car brand will also become more valuable.
