1990 Ferrari 641/2
Offered by Gooding & Company | Scottsdale, Arizona | January 16, 2015
The 1990 Formula One season was packed with legendary drivers: Senna, Prost, Piquet, and Nigel Mansell, who drove this very Ferrari. The 641 was a development of the 640, which was used the season prior.
It’s powered by a 3.5-liter V-12 making an estimated 685 horsepower at an ear-splitting 13,000 RPM. The racing history for this chassis includes:
- 1990 German Grand Prix – 19th, DNF (all races with Mansell)
- 1990 Portuguese Grand Prix – 1st
- 1990 Spanish Grand Prix – 2nd
- 1990 Japanese Grand Prix (site of the infamous Senna/Prost debacle) – 14th, DNF
- 1990 Australian Grand Prix – 2nd
So this is a race winning Formula One car that had three podiums in five races and was raced by one of the sports legendary champions. It was used in the second-half of the season, presumably hence the “/2” (indicating updates on the car). This is one of seven or eight 641 chassis built and a handful are in private hands. It would be a most fun track day car, if you have the means. It should sell for between $800,000-$1,100,000. Click here for more info and here for the rest of Gooding’s lineup.
Update: Sold $990,000.
