Fancy that, who knew you could buy a race winning Ferrari Formula 1 racecar for less than one million bucks?!
This 1990 Ferrari 641/2 sold for US$990,000 at the recent Gooding & Company auction in Scottsdale. Powered by a 3.5 litre normally aspirated V12 this car, chassis #120, was driven by Nigel Mansell for five races during the 1990 season, including his win at the Portuguese Grand Prix.
As an aside you can tell Gooding & Company is an American company with scant regard to the facts of F1, because:
Together in 1990, Mansell and Prost would go on to deliver Ferrariâ€™s best season in years, with Ferrari securing the Manufacturerâ€™ Championship and Prost the Driversâ€™ Championship.
Except they didn’t. Anyway, the pics are nice and bring back great memories!
Those of you paying attention last week will remember the lime green Lamborghini Miura we featured. It sold for $1,155,000.
