RM Auctions, the official auction house of the Amelia Island Concours d‚ÄôElegance, will present a stunning selection of classic Ferraris at its sale in conjunction with the event on March 10 in Florida. No less than eight examples from the Modenese Prancing Horse are poised for the auction podium. Headlining the offerings is an exceptional 1956 Ferrari 250 GT Coupe Speciale, s/n 0465 GT, featuring rare 410 Superamerica-style, Pinin Farina Berlinetta coachwork. One of just four examples built, 0465 GT remains unique among its peers thanks to numerous special-order items including gauges, telescopic steering wheel, high bolster seats, twin fuel tanks with twin fillers and a custom lowered driver‚Äôs window crank. Immaculately presented, it carries Ferrari Classiche certification and is a multiple award-winner; it‚Äôs expected to fetch up to $1.6 million.
