1971 Ferrari 365 GTS/4 Daytona Spider. $2,452,500. The 36th of only 121 examples built. 1972 New York International Automobile Show car. Ferrari Classiche Certified and Platinum Winner at the Cavallino Classic. Retains its matching-numbers chassis, engine, and gearbox. Finished in original colors of Giallo Fly over Pelle Nera.

1992 Ferrari F40. $2,040,000. The F40 is powered by a mid-mounted, 2.9-liter, twin-turbo V-8. This car eclipsed the Haggerty #1 (Concours) condition value by nearly 25%. With just 3300 miles on its odometer, this is one of the last F40s produced for North America and might be best.
