Four Ford GTS Come To Auction at RM Sotheby’s 2024 Arizona 202


RM Sotheby’s opens the 2024 auction season in the Southwest at the historic Arizona Biltmore Resort & Spa on Thursday, 25 January 2024. Returning to Arizona for a 26th year, the Biltmore will once again transform into a haven for automotive enthusiasts and collectors alike, bridging the gap between timeless Ford classics and contemporary prowess in addition to other incredible vehicle offerings.

A truly special offering demonstrating the allure of the Ford GT legacy, RM Sotheby’s is thrilled to present two matching marvels from different eras. First, a 2018 Ford GT—a contemporary masterpiece with only 28 miles, cloaked in Ingot Silver and presented in pristine condition; a true collector’s gem (Estimate: $900,000 – $1,100,000). Complementing this modern icon is its celebrated predecessor, a 2005 Ford GT, which stands as one of the final analogue supercars of the era.

Notably, it is one of a mere 16 units produced that year, distinguished by a stripe-delete Quick Silver finish, a mere 2,470 miles on the clock, and outfitted with a McIntosh radio and lightweight BBS wheels (Estimate: $400,000 – $500,000). The opportunity to acquire matching Ford GTs from two pivotal points in automotive history—spanning the analogue and digital age—is an occasion that Ford collectors will not want to miss.

For those whose passion veers towards classic American muscle, our Arizona auction also presents an exceptional trio of Shelby Mustangs. Taking centre stage is a pristinely restored 1967 Shelby GT500, one of only six in Dark Moss Green with a four-speed manual—an example that garnered gold status at the Shelby American Automobile Club’s 47th convention.

With an estimated value between $300,000 and $400,000, this vehicle is a collector’s dream. Also available are two original-engine Shelbys: a coveted 1967 Shelby GT350 Fastback, also in Dark Moss Green, estimated at $200,000 to $250,000, and a 1966 Shelby GT350 H known for its distinctive red oxide floors, with an estimate of $150,000 to $200,000. These storied Shelbys offer a remarkable opportunity for connoisseurs to acquire a piece of American automotive history.

Other Highlights

A highly original example emerging from nearly 40 years of single ownership, this 1963 Ferrari 250 GT/L Berlinetta Lusso by Scaglietti was number 129 of 350 examples built and desirably retains matching-numbers engine, gearbox, and rear axle. Documented with Marcel Massini’s history and service invoices dating to 1984, this is a very pure and authentic example originally specified for the European market. All proceeds will be donated to numerous charities (Estimate: $1,000,000 – $1,300,000).

An exceedingly rare aluminium-bodied Superleggera example finished in its original colour scheme, this 1965 Lamborghini 350 GT by Touring is believed to be the only 350 GT finished in this livery. With its numbers-matching engine, gearbox, and body, as well as award-winning restoration by Gary Bobileff, this example is well-sorted in the current ownership and boasts superb condition throughout (Estimate: $600,000 – $750,000).
