At the Bonhams auction held in Gstaad, Switzerland the star was were three prestigious Maserati racing cars, each boasting Le Mans history in the 1960s.
One of them, the only remaining Maserati Tipo 151 from 1962 was adjudicated to an American collector for a price of $1.5 million. Both the Tipo 63 and the unique Tipo 65 from the same collection were sold as well.
It is expected that at least one of these three highly significant competition models will be entered in historic motor racing events in the coming months, at venues such as Le Mans, Laguna Seca or Goodwood. After decades in silence, it will be a great joy to hear the sound of these mighty Maserati racing engines thunder once again.
