Is This the Most Valuable Car in the World? - Bloomberg - Bloomberg
With six carburetors, one for every two cylinders, the car produced 330 horsepower. At auction in 2014, one of its siblings fetched $29. 4 million. Rather, he displayed it proudly at his Swap Shop, a giant flea market and drive-in movie theater complex in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. What is Henn's 275 GTB/C Speciale worth. ) A slightly eccentric owner never hurt the value of a car either (see: Joplin, Janis ), and Henn falls squarely in that camp. But it's a better car and more rare—one of only three. In addition to being a profligate collector, the flea-market magnate ran a racing team and was a respected wheelman in his own right. When Fiat Chrysler rejected his bid to buy the ultra-rare LaFerrari Aperta (and returned his $1 million check), Henn sued the company for defamation. "About 10 years ago, he got an offer from a big Japanese collector for 35 to 40 million euros," recalled Ron Vogel, a friend and racing buddy. A few of these machines, however, were built for racing and stamped with a “C”—for “Competizione”—and "Speciale" (lest one think it common). It may also be the world’s first car to break the $100 million mark, provided it finds its way to the auction block. For the first time, cars for the road and weekend warrior drivers were no longer solely seen as a way to finance racing teams. When it went into production, Ferrari had recently restructured as a public corporation. "I think he responded, ‘Stop talking to me. ' ". For Ferrari, he was both a devoted customer and a provocateur. Before passing, he told Autoweek that he made sure the Ferrari will stay on display at the Swap Shop long after he is gone. Henn’s Ferrari is layered with the stuff. Critically, the 275 GTB was designed by Pininfarina, the Italian firm responsible for the bodywork on some of the most coveted Ferraris and Alfa Romeos. Closer in lineage to the GTO Ferraris that took Europe's racetracks by storm in the early 1960s, the "special" 275 GTBs had thinner body panels and a more spindly infrastructure, a metal diet that trimmed 300 pounds in all. Rabold said Henn's Speciale would fetch between $50 million and $75 million. Well, what someone is willing to pay for it. Brian Rabold, vice president of valuation for the Hagerty Group, said it doesn't have the historical racing significance of Ferrari's coveted early GTOs. Vogel said Henn repeatedly rejected Ferrari's offers to show the vehicle at its own museum. "At one point he said he wanted to be buried in it. ". If you are really keen on Ferraris from the 1960s, pick one up for $200,000—say a 300 GT. At that price, one could justifiably drive it down to Fort Lauderdale and ogle Henn's precious machine... One of the most coveted cars in the world lost its driver this week when millionaire Preston Henn, a South Florida flea-market magnate and racing aficionado, died at age 86. .

Is this vintage Ferrari worth $100 million? - Autofocus
Is there someone out there who can convince Henn’s widow and four children to sell the car. Sweetening the story surrounding Henn’s car is the fact it won its class in the 1965 running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race. Instead, Henn displayed the car at the Fort Lauderdale, Florida flea market and drive-in theatre he owned, called Swap Shop. ” A good friend of his said Henn at one point wanted to be buried in the car. Officially, experts Bloomberg spoke to said the car is probably worth between $50 and $75 million, and that one of the other three just like it sold a few years ago for a bit less than $30 million.
