pre auction estimates were as high as 70 million since one sold privately for 51 million not that long ago... so the gavel price was a surprise for many there , and a " deal " for the winning bidder

this one even had same owner since 1965 ..the longest tenure ......the late famed Ferrari enthusiast and friend of Enzo Fabrizio Violati

I suspect superstitious Asian bidders were spooked by the fact that a racer died in it during one of it's races

anyone could have bought one for less than $ 10k, 40 years ago, when these languished for sale as just an old outdated used GT car, about a third of the price of an average home then
