“The crowd was buzzing when the 2014 Ferrari LaFerrari pulled up on the turntable,” said Richard Sevenoaks, president of Leake Auction Company. “It is a stunning vehicle that is extremely rare, generating more excitement than any car we have ever sold. This is only the fifth time one has been available in an auction and we are very pleased with its performance.”

His collection reflects his eye for collectibles.”
