the GTOs in the Bardinon family. French tax authorities would love to dial in their value, and get their cut. It might be a 75 or 200 million dollar collection

July 18th, 2017 by admin

Last Feb, the family, squabbling over inheritance, etc, sold just one of these for 38.5 million dollars. That immediately slapped the French govt in the wallet, and they liked the way that tax money felt. The French govt wants more. All they can get

Making it difficult for them, is that rich people over appraise the things they give to charity, and undervalue things they sell and get taxed on.

The Bardinon Ferraris brought the issue to the world stage. Pierre Bardinon, born in 1931, was an heir to the Chapal family, a French leather and fur dynasty famed for making pilot bomber jackets. As a boy, Bardinon fell ian love with cars and started buying old racing Ferraris in the 1960s, when few other collectors were interested in them.

He went on to buy more than 70 rare Ferraris.

He turned the family chateau at Mas du Clos, near Aubusson, into a Ferrari playground, with a museum housing the cars, and a two-mile racetrack.

He built his own circuit on his estate for trackdays and personal use, the layout was designed without too strong braking, so that the old drum brakes did not suffer too much, he loved his cars that much.

Although it was closed around a decade ago because he was suffering bureaucratic rubbish about needing to adhere to modern safety regulations at vast expense – when the circuit was not used for racing purposes in the true sense of the word.

The Ferrari collection had dwindled to around 20 cars by 2012, as Mr. Bardinon sold them off.

He had a butler who blackmailed him. He told him that either he would pay him or he would tell the French govt the real value of all the cars he had stored. Bardinon refused, the butler “sang” and from there he had to start selling cars and the thing began to decline.

After Mr. Bardinon died in 2012, and his wife a year later, the French government levied an inheritance tax of millions of dollars on their three children, according to court documents. The Bardinon siblings are now battling in court over the future of the collection.

Marcel Massini, a Geneva-based Ferrari historian who knew Mr. Bardinon and frequently inspected the collection, said the remaining cars in the Bardinon collection could be worth over $200 million. He said at least three of them could fetch over $30 million each in today’s market.

“These are like the Mona Lisas of the Ferrari world,” he said. “They are the best of the best.”

And yet for tax purposes, certain members of the family valued the entire collection at 70 million euros, according to court documents.

As the court fight continued, two of the siblings decided to auction off a trophy of the collection, a 1957 Ferrari 335 Sport Scaglietti

Wealthy collectors hope that the situation could lead to more of the Bardinon Ferraris being up for sale.

There are a lot of billionaires in the world who want these cars. Bardinon started collecting competition Ferrari long before the current vogue – and had numerous of the Ferrari big hitters such as a ‘64 250 GTO, 330 P4, 250 LM, 312 PB, Competition 250 SWB etc

He looked for and bought the most beautiful Ferraris of the world. Tracking the most prestigious models of competition (almost exclusively cars of the factory stable), he acquired a unique set that included the
250 TR and 330 TRI / LM Victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, respectively in 1958 and 1962 (both with Olivier Gendebien and Phil Hill),
the 250 GT victory in the Tour de France 1961 (chassis No. 2937GT, formerly W.Mairesse-G.Berger) The 312P ex-P. Rodriguez-D.Piper (n ° 0870),
330 P4 (n ° 0860) or GTO 1964 (n ° 5573GT)

the article about it all is at

Behind this ordinary wall, inside a one bedroom apartment, a 1959 Ferrari 250GT PF Coupe was stored for 30 years in Hollywood. Look carefully, see the cracks in the wall? It’s a hidden door with hinges

January 31st, 2017 by admin

That window above, is the same window over the roof of the Ferrari

The apartment building owner bought the 250 GT in the 70s, enjoyed it for about 7 years, then decided to restore it, and needed a place for it to be out of sight and off the street while the engine was being rebuilt by the shop at Briggs Cunningham’s museum.

So he cut out the wall and installed hinges for it’s eventual return to the outside world, then rolled the car in, put the ramps in the apartment with the car, closed the wall, and with a fast coat of stucco and paint, instant – presto – chango…. the neighbors never realized the apartment was now a storage garage for a Ferrari.

It was on the first floor in a one-bedroom apartment, against the dining room wall facing the driveway. What the building owner had accomplished was inspired by a comic book strip, included that in the binder of documents with the Ferrari paperwork.

He hinged the hole in the wall so it’s a whole wall with a window and blinds and everything. It swings open, and he lined up ramps and rolled the car in. Later he took the engine and transmission out, and took the wheels off.

To get the car out they had the door cut open, swung the wall out and the hinge system thankfully still functioned. They used the same ramps that were used to put the car inside, lined them up, and had about five people pushing the car out.

The tire pressure was intentionally getting the car out so the car wouldn’t easily roll away as the brakes are non-operational. The whole process took around five hours.

the Porsche 917 in the "hippie" colors

December 24th, 2016 by admin

In 1970, it was Martini Racing’s Hans-Dieter Dechent who offered his factory 917-043 for Porsche’s recently appointed designer, Anatole Lapine, to decorate.

Departing from the planned white-with-red ‘script’, Lapine penned the swirling ‘hippie’ design, first laying purple and then matt fluorescent green on factory-fresh white Porsche paintwork. The work was completed over the Le Mans week, using some 1,500 spray cans.

In 1975 Vasek Polak, with his unique connections, bought this car from the factory, the only complete 917L ever sold by Porsche.

It was sold as chassis 917-044, reportedly the car crashed by Kurt Ahrens in pre-Le Mans tests at the VW test track in 1970 and never subsequently raced.

of snorkels and spare tires, the Ferrari P4 in 1967 -68

December 23rd, 2016 by admin

Modified to run in the ’67 CanAm Series in the US. Chassis ‘0858’was then acquired by ‘Scuderia Veloces’ David McKay for one fabulous season in Australia

just look at the induction snorkels and that spare tire… quite a strange look indeed.

the caption to the above photo:
That ‘Australian’ spare tyre. Fitted as a consequence of our local sports car regs at the time. SV solution a neat one even if the weight is well outside the cars wheelbase…where else to put it!? Yellow stickers ‘Gatto Verde’ a gift from Alf Francis to McKay, McKay makes mention of it in his autobiography but not actually what the stickers mean/represent.
