Ferrari FXX Evolution, Maserati MC 12 On Auction

Source: Gooding & Company | Published: Thu Dec 30, 2010

The auction house Gooding & Company will be presenting one of the finest collections of modern high-performance Ferraris and rarely seen Italian prototypes ever assembled under one roof at its Scottsdale Auctions in a few weeks. These rare cars belonged to the renowned collector Benny Caiola who passed away in April this year.

"We are honored to present the private collection of Benny Caiola in Scottsdale this January," says David Gooding, President and founder of Gooding & Company. "These modern supercars represent an exciting shift in the collector hobby, where today's leading prototypes are now being considered to be instant collectibles on the international stage."

Simply viewing the automobiles in person can take one's breath away. Designed especially for a select few of Ferrari-Maserati's best clients, three highlights include a 2006 Ferrari FXX Evoluzione, one of 30 FXX examples of Ferrari's most advanced production car ever created; a 2005 Maserati MC 12 purchased direct from the factory, the 31st car of 50 built; and a 1999 Ferrari 333 SP, an unmodified example of the manufacturer's last sports racing prototype.

Benny Caiola was larger than life, generous in nature and philanthropy, respected and loved by his friends in the collector community as well as by members of the Ferrari family. Benny's involvement in elite rallies, track trials and other select automotive events over many years ensured him a place among the glitterati of the car community, cementing strong friendships with the world's finest racing and design figures including Enzo Ferrari, Luca Cordero di Montezemolo, Michael Schumacher and Horacio Pagani.
