This 1954 Ferrari 625 F1 Set for Auction Today

The world of F1 motor-racing has evolved significantly over the years, from a focus on speed and style to the high-tech, detailed sport it is today. The 1954 Ferrari 625 F1 embodies this classic era and is set to be auctioned at RM Sotheby’s Monaco.

Priced between £2,150,000 and £2,550,000, this rare 1954 Ferrari 625 F1 is closely linked to Ferrari’s first World Championship-winning car, the 500 F2, which secured consecutive titles in 1952 and 1953 with Alberto Ascari at the wheel.

This particular car carries significant history as the only Ferrari monoposto raced by Marquis Alfonso de Portago, adding to its allure for passionate motorsport enthusiasts with a penchant for legendary vehicles. Kept in pristine condition within the esteemed Bardinon Mas du Clos Collection for over 15 years, it is a standout piece deserving a special place in any collector’s showcase.

Purchased by a collector from Cologne, Germany in December 2000, the Ferrari has been meticulously maintained for over two decades, culminating in a recent inspection by Ferrari Classiche in April 2022. The inspection verified its authenticity with matching chassis and engine numbers and confirmed the gearbox’s correctness for the model.

Owning one of Ferrari’s early Formula 1 cars is a privilege, but owning a vehicle of such originality is a rare opportunity suited for the most discerning collectors. Eligible for prestigious vintage racing events and Concours showcases, this car invites enthusiasts to appreciate its engineering excellence developed by Aurelio Lampredi and expertly driven by the legendary Alberto Ascari.
