At the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance this year, Gooding & Company will be offering up a legendary piece of Formula 1 history in the form of Niki Lauda's 1975 Ferrari 312T.
Behind the wheel of this particular ride, the Austrian driver racked up a victory at the French Grand Prix and placed second in the Dutch Grand Prix and third at the German Grand Prix. All of which contributed to both his and the Prancing Horse’s 1975 F1 world championship. With the car, he also took a victory in the non-championship 1975 BRDC International Trophy held at Silverstone.
“The Ferrari 312T is among the most important and dominant Grand Prix models in the marque’s celebrated history," says Hans Wurl of Gooding & Company. “Never before has a 312T been presented at auction, and this example, having been an integral part in legendary Austrian driver Niki Lauda's championship win, makes this a once in a lifetime opportunity. This is a consignment several years in the making, and it is a truly rare chance to acquire a Formula One car of this significance."
Expected to fetch between $6mm–$8mm on the block, this will presumably be one of the most sought after cars at the annual motoring event. If you're in attendance, make sure to check this one out in person.
