Got a few million to burn? Head to California next month and grab one of these beauties

Every year, as the summer slowly fades to fall, Monterey, California is inundated by top-dollar four-wheeled machinery. It’s called Monterey Car Week, and in addition to classic racing at Laguna Seca and world-class show and shine at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, this annual auto orgy also plays host to numerous high-end collector car auctions. One of the best is put on by RM Sotheby’s, which just announced it would offer up a lineup of no less than 13 of some of the most desirable Ferraris on the planet.

It makes sense to bring these machines to Monterey. After all, this is the town where in 2014, a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO sold for a whopping $38 million to become the most expensive car ever sold at public auction. Celebrities rub shoulders with collectors and well-heeled enthusiasts in a nearly endless sea of pricey metal, and counter-bids are in increments big enough to buy a house. It’s the perfect place for a spread like this, which spans a full half-century of Ferrari’s greatest hits. Upping the excitement, most models are offered without reserve, and all but two are painted a searing shade of Rosso Corsa red. The heavy hitter of the bunch is a silver 1961 250 GT SWB Berlinetta by Scaglietti, which is expected to change hands for somewhere between $8.5 and $10 million.
