Ferrari LaFerrari, Porsche 918 Spyder and McLaren P1 GTR up for auction at RM Sotheby’s Villa Erba

Held every two years since 2011, RM Sotheby’s Villa Erba alongside the shores of Lake Como in Italy, will be putting up for auction an impressive trio of hybrid hypercars on the 27th of May. The trio consists of: a Ferrari LaFerrari, a road-legal conversion of the McLaren P1 GTR, and a Porsche 918 Spyder. In the past three events they have held, the auction house has never had these three hypercars, all at the same time. So for those of you who have a lot saved in the bank, it’s your chance to bid on these bad boys.

Let us get into the details of each one. First, the LaFerrari has a classic Ferrari body paint of a Rosso Corsa red and black accents on the roof and side mirrors. As for the interior, it comes with matching black leather and crimson details. It only has 112 miles (180 kilometers) of mileage, since it was first bought in 2014, and after having two owners. This model has an estimated market price of €2.65 million to €3.2 million euros.

Up next would be the McLaren P1 GTR. This 986 horsepower (725 kilowatt) hypercar features the LM conversion by Lanzante Motorsport. Being just one of ten models that have been converted into a road-legal track-only hypercar, this one has got to be pricey. Another factor that has raised the price is the fact that it has only been driven 224 miles. The auction house estimates this one to be priced at €3.2 million to €3.6 million.

Both the LaFerrari and P1 GTR have barely been used by their owners and are in very good condition.

Lastly, this Porsche 918 Spyder is the only example of this model that has an Arrow Blue exterior finish as this has a “paint-to-sample” body. It also comes with the Weissach Package which cuts down 90 pounds (41 kilograms) of its weight compared to the original example.

Amongst the three, the 918 Spyder is the only one that has a relatively considerable mileage. The former owner of the roadster has driven it for 6,835 miles (11,000 kilometers). But new brake pads, fresh tires, and paint protection film have been added to the roadster. The Spyder has an estimated market price of €1.2 million to €1.4 million.

Along with these three hypercars, the first ever 1930 Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 GS Spider 4th Series, and a 1935 Bugatti Type 57 Atlante Prototype will also be part of the auction as one of the oldest cars. The former has an estimated market price of €2.2 million to €2.6 million and the latter is estimated to sell from €2.8 million to €3.2 million.
