    Rétromobile 2022 : 27 Ferrari not to be missed


    After these periods of confinement and pandemic, it feels great to come back to Rétromobile! Fewer exhibitors, return to a smaller space, was the show going to keep its promises or mark a change in trend? What were the beautiful Ferraris not to be missed on the spot, because they are rare to see otherwise? What was this Retromobile 2022 vintage worth?

    First there was the Artcurial sale with the four Ferrari hypercars: the Ferrari F40, the Ferrari F50, the Ferrari Enzo and the Ferrari LaFerrari! They were accompanied by a Ferrari 599 GTO!




    These Ferraris went up for auction for the following amounts:

    - Ferrari F40 from 1989 #80761 : 2.102.400 €

    - Ferrari F50 from 1996 #105265 : 4.161.600 €

    - Ferrari Enzo from 2003 #132053 : 2.846.000 €

    - Ferrari LaFerrari from 2013 #199747 : 2.714.440 €

    - Ferrari 599 GTO #173816 : 774.800 €




    In old and rare Ferraris, Atelier des Coteaux presented a Ferrari 212 Inter Spider Vignale. Out of 80 examples of Ferrari 212 produced between 1951 and 1953, only 7 examples of Spider were made by Vignale.




    This example, chassis #0125EL, has a special history. In May 1951, this chassis was used by the Ferrari factory to finalize the tests of the model, in the form of a coupé. In August 1951, Vignale rebuilt it as a spider. Of the 7 existing examples, it is probably the only one to have 3 carburettors. Indeed the Inter configurations were road models, equipped with a single twin-barrel carburetor, while the Export configurations were intended for competition with 3 carburetors (optional for Inter models).




    In 1987, the Italian coachbuilder Dino Cognolatto acquired it and transformed it into a racing berlinetta. The current owner bought it in this configuration from DK Engineering in 2015, who called it back a few months later to announce that they had found the original #0125EL bodywork! It was then fully restored.

    In the end, many beautiful cars to see, in a smaller show, despite the absence of the usual big foreign sellers and manufacturers. The crowd was also smaller, apparently, because on Sunday morning it was easy to get around. It remains to be seen how this show will evolve in the years to come, but Rétromobile remains an excellent way to see exceptional vehicles and to (re)immerse yourself in the history of the brands.
