Russo and Steele‘s Scottsdale auction takes place January 27–31. Over the event’s five action-packed days, Russo and Steele will feature a strong selection of European sports cars, American muscle, hot rods and customs. Featured early consignments include the following:

1966 Lamborghini 350GT

This outstanding early-production 350GT (pictured) has received multiple Best in Class awards at demanding concours. A comprehensive restoration portfolio details the work performed. Noted authority Mr. Bob Wallace attended to the mechanicals, brightwork was by Christensen Plating and Dubuque Trim restored the interior.

1965 Ferrari 330 GT “Shark Nose”

A special one-off with uniquely restyled front end, based on one of the finest and most enjoyable classic V12 Ferrari GT models. Owned new by, and modified for, American businessman and racing-team owner John Mecom Jr. Restored at Ferrari of Washington for prior owner at great expense, including bare-metal repaint, new leather interior, mechanical recommissioning and more. Engine number matches the VIN. History and provenance documented in the 330 GT Registry.

2005 Ford GT

Equipped with all four options, including McIntosh audio, lightweight forged aluminum wheels, gray-painted brake calipers and painted racing stripes. This 2005 Ford GT epitomizes the modern supercar with its 550-hp supercharged DOHC 32-valve 5.4-liter engine, 6-speed gearbox, race-bred all-independent suspension and Brembo vented disc brakes. Complete with original books and documentation, it is exceptional in Colonial White. CARFAX report available upon request.

1973 Ferrari Dino 246 GTS Spyder

An original U.S.-delivery example, S/N 04870 is handsomely presented in great colors and benefits from sound maintenance. Without the fender flares more commonly associated with the later-production cars, the car features uncommon purity of line.

1966 Shelby GT350 Fastback – No Reserve

Verified by Howard Pardee, the Shelby American Automobile Club’s 1965-66 GT350 Registrar, this 1966 Shelby GT350 — numbered SFM6S1747 — was restored using N.O.S. parts wherever possible. Finished in Sapphire Blue with Wimbledon White stripes, it is highly correct, well detailed and handsomely presented throughout, and it is a highly desirable 4-speed example.

1988 Ferrari Testarossa

Striking in Blanco White over Tan, this 1988 ½ Ferrari Testarossa is a California car since new with only 22,969 miles. With just three owners from new, it has no issues, no evidence of paintwork of any kind, a clean CARFAX report and complete service history. Complete with books, three keys, a tool kit and jack kit.

Russo and Steele’s 16th annual Scottsdale sale will showcase a diverse, exclusive selection of over 750 automobiles. The five-day event will take place between Scottsdale Road and Hayden Road — just south of the North Loop 101 Freeway.
