1959 Ferrari California Spyder LWB

RM Sotheby’s estimates that a 1959 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spyder Competizione going on the block in New York City on December 6 will sell for between $14 and $17 million.

This stunning machine is particularly valuable because it’s one of only eight LWB California Spyders built with an all-aluminum body and it finished fifth overall at Le Mans in 1959.

Ferrari produced fifty 250 California Spyder LWBs between 1957 and 1960 for the North American market, and this high-spec Competizione model features a Tipo 128F engine with triple carburetors that generates an impressive 262.5 bhp at 7,300 rpm. It was raced through the early 1960s, won first place in its class at Pebble Beach in 1983, and is still eligible for vintage racing events such as the Le Mans Classic.

 

Gooding & Company sold a Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spyder Competizione for 18 million US dollars in 2016, and at least nine Ferraris have been publicly auctioned for between $15 and $18 million since 2011. Of course, new Ferraris are also out of reach for most enthusiasts. They sell for anywhere from $200,000 for a California T to $1.4 million for a LaFerrari.

Fortunately, Ferrari fanatics can find used models that are much less expensive. This is especially true in Japan, where numerous used car dealers and Japanese used car auctions — putting over 150,000 vehicles on auction every week — offer some of the world’s best deals. Japan Car Direct recently had the honor of handling the purchase and export of the following used Ferraris.

1994 Ferrari 512 TR
This incredibly alluring Pininfarina-styled supercar presses all the right emotional buttons by tweaking Testarossa styling to perfection and delivering performance that leaves even the Testarossa behind. Only 2,261 of these exclusive machines were produced.

1991 Ferrari Testarossa
Wicked fast and drop-dead gorgeous. The radically aggressive Ferrari Testarossa took the world by storm when unveiled in 1984. Few cars in history have so dramatically influenced pop culture and automotive design.

There’s just something about Ferraris that no other cars can match. Fast, beautiful, exciting and exclusive, they make everything around them shine.

    review rating 5  A must for exporting cars from Japan. I've exported various models with these guys now and they have been exactly how we wanted them with no underlying issues or surprises when they arrive. Very pleased and will continue to use these guys in the future!

    review rating 5  This was my first time importing a vehicle for my personal use and naturally I was leary about who to go through. After looking through a few other places and after getting in touch with a longtime customer of theirs I decided to try these guys out. I can say without a doubt I'm glad I did. They are definitely professional and know their craft when it comes to getting you your dream car. Everything from getting cars inspected and bidding was completely transparent and went smoothly. I couldn't be happier with the car I bought and I hope down the line I'll be able to purchase another using these guys!! Thanks for all you guys do!!!

  • review rating 5  I have already purchased 3 cars from this company and have a 4th on the way. They are very nice, extremely helpful, and work around your budget. I worked with Yoshi. He is very nice and made me a lot more comfortable with the wire transfers (after purchasing the vehicle), because let’s be honest, it is nerve racking to send money to a foreign country and have to wait several weeks for your vehicle to arrive. However, everything has gone smoothly, and they make it very easy to import the car of your dreams. I will continue to go with Japan Car Direct for all my japan car needs 😀

    review rating 5  Amazing people to work with. Answered any question I could think of and never left me hanging in during the entire process. I was always kept in the loop. Matt and his team are superb in every way. From picking my car out at auction to picking it up at port they were always there and now I have great little cappuccino to drive around now! I will be using them again to bring in another car in the near future that's for sure.
