RM Sotheby’s has announced the addition of the Gran Turismo Collection to its upcoming London auction. A single-owner collection that spans 50 years of automotive history, the grouping consists of supercars, iconic GT cars and a trio of Group B rally cars. The cars will cross the block at the London sale — held in association with the London to Brighton Veteran Car Run — on Saturday, November 5 at the Marlborough House.

Headlining the Gran Turismo Collection is the complete set of Ferrari’s super- and hypercar models. All five are finished in Ferrari’s traditional Rosso Corsa. The first of the group — a 1985 Ferrari 288 GTO — has been a part of the collection since 2012, is Classiche Certified and has covered 23,609 km. The second of the two twin-turbocharged V8 supercars is a 1991 Ferrari F40 that has had just two owners from new, having remined in the Gran Turismo Collection for a quarter-century. Currently fitted with a straight-through exhaust, the F40 is sold with its owner’s manual, service book and numerous invoices.

The 1997 Ferrari F50 offered from the collection was one of three post-production examples built for the Sultan of Brunei. It has since received Ferrari Classiche Certification and is accompanied by a storage box for the roof panel, roll hoops, soft-top, Barchetta tonneau cover and Schedoni suitcase.

The final two halo cars — a 2003 Ferrari Enzo and 2014 Ferrari LaFerrari —were both delivered new to the consignor. Unlike many example that were quickly placed in storage, both V12 machines in the Gran Turismo Collection were driven as was intended. The odometer of the Enzo read 71,937 km at the time of cataloging and the LaFerrari odometer read 24,233 km. Both have been well-maintained with the most recent services completed in 2021 and 2022, respectively.

A few of the many other highlights from the collection include a U.S.-spec 1971 Lamborghini Miura SV finished in Verde Miura and a 2011 Ferrari 599 SA Aperta — one of only 80 produced. Also crossing the block is a 1993 Bugatti EB110 GT, 1996 Bugatti EB110 Super Sport and a one-of-30 2022 Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+. Fans of Group B rally cars should take note of the 1985 Lancia Delta S4 Group B Works in Martini Racing guise that won the 1986 Monte Carlo rally with Henri Toivonen behind the wheel.
