    The same Ferrari 121LM, #0546LM, that was offered and sold at RM Monterey for $5.335 million is now being offered at Autosport Designs. Not sure what the deal is or why someone would buy and sell in such a short timeframe, one of their clients is Lesley Wexner of Victoria's Secret and #0384AM fame so maybe he bought it and found it lacking in some way, who knows........

    Interesting car. Not loved in period as they were lots of power with less than class handling and brakes. RM's catalog description of Chris Cord undertaking the resurrection and the subsequent sale to Bill Ziering was not entirely accurate.

    Ignore my comments regarding Wexner, confused Copley Motorcars with Autosport Designs, both North Eastern car dealers but too completely different agencies.

    Very interesting, I always get alarm bells when I read descriptions as given by RM

    It would not be the first time a broker buys a car and re-sell it right after.
    Tom Hartley Jnr said on Insta he purchased the 500 Mondial in Monterey among other cars and we have seen in the past Talacrest, Guikas, Funtasy Junction etc... selling recently auctionned cars

    Or broker buys car on behalf of their buyer lists the car on their website for a week or two then reports it sold, to gain a bit of publicity.

    Brandon here from ASD. Car is actually consigned with us. Current owner did buy it at Pebble and wanted to race it in Europe, then decided not to and sent it to us. Happy to answer more questions.
