Ferrari 599 GTZ Zagato Nibbio star lot at Riyadh Car Show Auction

A Feast Of Hypercars, Supercars And Exclusive Models To Be Auctioned At The Riyadh Car Show

The Riyadh Car Show Auction is offering some of the most exotic and highest quality high-performance hypercars and supercars hosted by Silverstone Auctions on the 22nd November.

The star lot on offer is a 2010 Ferrari 599 GTZ Zagato Nibbio Spyder. Based on the Ferrari 599 GTB nine of these GTZs were made of which only two were Spyders. Zagato is synonymous with specialist and exclusive car design and taking it to the next level. The Nibbio was just that, a client wanted something that was a bit more special from his 599GTB and Zagato set about redesigning it, including the trademark double bubble. Such was the success they went on to build nine cars of which just two were Spyders including this sparkling white version, which has not been used since conversion, still with 10,477km on the clock.

If you want a supercar that stands out from the crowd, you can’t go wrong with a Pagani. This 2013 Pagani Huayra Coupe is a very rare car, one of 100 Coupes produced and has just 700km on the clock. With stunning performance from the Mercedes-Benz engine and active aerodynamics to keep it firmly planted on the road, this 720bhp supercar can go from 0 to 100kph in 3.0 seconds. This is a beautifully prepared car.

If we go back to 1985, this was the era of Group B rallying and several manufacturers wanted to get involved including Ferrari. In order to do so, they had to build an homologation special to meet the rules prior to taking part. So Ferrari created the 288 GTO, a car that is legendary and limited in numbers. This particular car is the 135th built and once owned by the fanatical car collector and radio presenter Chris Evans and once formed part of his White Collection. Now fully restored and presented in Rosso Corsa with a Nero interior, this car has been subjected to a restoration costing in excess of £150,000 in 2009. This is an extremely desirable car and one for any Ferrari collector.

Nick Whale Silverstone Auctions’ Managing Director commented: “We are really looking forward to hosting this auction with our partners Seven Concours. The lots being offered are out of this world and simply stunning. To have 45 lots of such high quality and exclusivity is tremendous. It is going to be a wonderful experience.
